He is coming to Ireland for 2 nights and we are very fortunate to have secured one of these nights for the Tipperary area. Jimmy will take on the best of local talent on the night who will be hoping to put one over on the Whirlwind, Some of those already lined up to play on the night include Freddie Chute from Thurles,Alan Cleary from Skeenirinky, Both ranked within the top 50 in the country and the match up everyone wants to see,twice Irish senior champion and semi finalist in the World amateur championships, Tommy Gleeson from nenagh.
