Our Senior hurlers got their campaign off to a winning start in Littleton on Saturday afternoon last when they defeated St. Mary's of Clonmel on a 4-14 to 2-13 scoreline.

In the junior hurling League we lost out to Thurles Gaels in Littleton on Sunday morning - the home side winning by 3-14 to 3-9. Result of the weekend was our U-14 hurlers victory over Newport in the Feile B County Final on Saturday. The boys got off to a strong start and led by nine at the interval. The Mulcair lads battled hard in the second half but Brackens ran out comfortable winners on a 3-7 to 1-4 scoreline. They now go forward to represent Tipperary in the All-Ireland finals in Cork.

Congratulations to Tina Aissou who won €588 in this weeks 50/50 draw. Tina bought her ticket in the Templemore Arms. Remember the draw takes place each Saturday night so make sure your name is in the bucket.
