County Tipperary Community Games Talent finals this Friday - Boherlahan are quiz champs

County Tipperary Community Games Talent finals this Friday - Boherlahan are quiz champs

County Community Games Table Quiz Under 14. Left to right: Michael Maher (County Chair Community Games), Leah O’Connell, Dara Crosse, Rory Crosse, Ruth O’Connell.

There is one very important change regarding team events this year. All team entries must be submitted to the County Board by this Saturday, May 14 at 11.59pm. The difference this year is all players must be named at this stage not only the name of the team as before.
Therefore all managers asked to put their thinking caps on and submit full details of each competitor, name, address D-O-B to their Area Secretary immediately. Late entries will not be accepted.
Fixtures will be played off during the eight weeks of June and July with County Finals to be played in mid August. See dates for Munster and National finals.
