AIB MUNSTER CLUB SENIOR HURLING

 

Good luck to Thurles Sarsfields for their AIB Munster Club Hurling championship quarter final against Kilmallock in Killmallock at 2pm next Sunday, October 28. The game will be refereed by Colm Lyons of Cork who will be familiar to many Tipperary followers having been in charge of both the Munster minor hurling final and the drawn All Ireland minor hurling final this year. Admission prices are: Adults – €15; Student/OAP – €10 with all Under 16s free. Extra time will be played in the event of a draw. The winners play Sarsfields (Cork) in the Munster Club Semi-Final on Sunday November 11 at a Tipperary or Cork venue. The last meeting of these teams in the Munster club championship was on November 14 2010 at Kilmallock when Thurles Sarsfields defeated Kilmallock by 2-10 to 0-11 in their semi-final clash. Goals by Lar Corbett and sub Michael O’Brien helped Thurles Sarsfields to a hard earned five point victory after the sides were level at 0-6 to 0-6 at half-time. The last home victory by the Limerick club champions came in 2008 courtesy of Adare’s 1-11 to 0-10 victory over Toomevara. Since 2008, the Tipperary Club Senior Hurling champions have won only 1 out of their 5 games played with Thurles Sarsfields’ victory over Kilmallock in 2010 being the only success.

 

 

AIB MUNSTER CLUB INTERMEDIATE HURLING

 

Best wishes also to Silvermines for their AIB Munster Club Intermediate Hurling championship quarter final against Ruan of Clare at Sixmilebridge next Sunday October 28 at 2pm. The referee will be Shane Hourigan of Limerick. The winners play An Rinn (Waterford) in the Munster Club Semi-Final on Sunday November 4 at 2pm in a Tipperary or Waterford venue. Admission Prices for Sunday are Adults – €10; Student/OAP – €5 with all Under 16s free. Clare clubs have lost their last 3 matches in this competition. With the exception of Borrisokane in 2010, no Tipperary Intermediate Hurling champions have recorded a victory in this grade dating back to 2005.

 

 

MOYCARKEY-BORRIS WIN TIPPERARY INTERMEDIATE FOOTBALL TITLE

 

Congratulations to Moycarkey-Borris on capturing their second ever County Intermediate Football title thanks to a 2-9 to 1-8 victory over Upperchurch-Drombane at Holycross on Saturday. Moycarkey led by 2-6 to 1-6 at the interval courtesy of goals by Paudie Doran and Pat Molloy. There was little between the sides in the second half with scores at a premium as Moycarkey-Borris held out for a deserved four point victory. Afterwards, Tipperary Football Board Chairman Noel Morris presented the cup to the Moycarkey-Borris captain and goalkeeper Daniel Kirby. Moycarkey’s previous title in this grade came in 1980 when captained by Harry Mulhaire. Moycarkey-Borris now join Loughmore-Castleiney, JK Brackens, Killenaule, Carrick Swan and Eire Og Annacarty as the only dual Senior clubs in the county for 2013. Moycarkey-Borris will represent Tipperary in the Munster Club Intermediate Football Championship when they play the Cork champions (St. Michael’s or St. Vincent’s) at a Cork venue on Sunday November 4th.
