Under 21 South Champions

Our Under 21 team have brought the first piece of silverware back to the club this year after a great win over Ballyporeen in Clonmel on Bank Holiday Monday.

The boys put in a great performance to win on a scoreline of 2-18 to 0-04. We are now through to the County semi-final where we await the winners of the North final.

Also, we wish the County Under 21 team the best of luck when they play Clare on Wednesday night in the Munster semi-final, especially our own three players - Billy Hewitt, Jonathan Ryan and Michael O’Sullivan.

Presentation to Gun Club: South Tipperary Regional Game Council recently presented ABGN Gun Club with a cheque to the value of €1,000. The monies will be spent on the club’s ongoing conservation projects.

The Game Council wishes to warmly commend the club for its pro-active approach to conservation over many decades. The cheque was presented by Mr. John Condon, game council joint treasurer, to the officers of ABGN Gun Club at a meeting in the Glenview Lounge, Goatenbridge.


There have been a lot of complaints recently over the amount of dog fouling on the footpaths, so all dog owners please have some consideration for walkers and wheelchair users and clean up after your pet.
