25th Tipperary Clubs Draw
Reminder to all that the first Draw for the 25th Anniversary Tipperary GAA Clubs Draw will take place on Friday 18th of May next.  The Club would like to thank all those who have supported this draw and hope that large numbers will continue to do so, even in these hard financial times.  We would ask all our Club promoters to be active in the next few weeks to help make this a special Draw as there are great prizes on offer.
If you are not already in the Draw, and would like to join, then you can, for as little as €10 a month. The Club has been lucky in past draws so why not take a chance and see if you can join in the success.  The monies raised are shared 50/50 with the Newport Club and the Tipperary County Board and the money we raise in the draw will help us to maintain our high standard of facilities into the future.
If you want to join then just call the Club Draw Co-Ordinator (Martin Kennedy) or the Club Chairman on 086-1970583 or 086-1265123. 

Keeper Hill Walk
The Juvenile Club's annual sponsored climb of Keeper Hill will take place on Sunday at 2pm. Entry is through Ballyhourigan Woods, so come along and enjoy the climb

Under 12
We had a great win against Burgess on Friday night.  2 first half goals from Jordan Mooney proved crucial and we now play Silvermines in the semi final on Tuesday night

Under 14
Our U14's were beaten 4-6 to 3-5 in the County Peil na nÓg semi-final by Clonmel Commercials in Cappawhite on Saturday last. We were slow to settle but came storming into the game with 3 goals by Kealan Floyd (2) and Aaron O'Neill. However, Clonmel had the deficit back to 1 goal by half time and proved to be the stronger team in the second half, restricting us to just 2 further points from frees.
We have qualified for the North Final of the championship, after a comprehensive win over Nenagh in the semi final. Our opponents will be Kiladangan. 
Well done to four of our players who have been selected on the County U14 football squad that will commence training at the end of May. The players are Dara Carroll, Kealan Floyd, Jack Delahunty and Cian Flanagan.
Well done to Kealan Floyd who won the North Tipperary Skills and Long Puck Competition recently but was beaten into second place by Brian McGrath from Loughmore in the County Skills competition. He had to withdraw from the Long Puck as the rules only allowed participation in one of the competitions..
Best of luck to our players that attended the recent North Tipperary U14 Hurling Trials.
Under 16
Our U16s defeated Ballina in the North semi-final last week and now play Nenagh in the North final in Templederry on Thursday night 10th May at 7pm. So come and support the lads.
Congratulations to Conor Floyd and Rob Houlihan who were members of the North Tipp Under 16 Hurling team which won the Munster Inter-Divisional competition last weekend.  Hard luck to team captain, Pa Ryan who missed out on lifting the cup due to a broken finger which prevented him from lining out. 
Pa is pictured in the centre of the front row (not togged out); Conor is the first player from the left of the back row; Rob is second player from the right in the back row.
