South Tipperary Bord na nÓg

Published 1 year ago 14th August 2021 by Victor Direen

Since our last issue of THE PREMIER, all Football championships have been concluded, leaving teams now in action with the small ball.

Under 13 Football

After an exciting A championship with Clonmel Commercials the deserving winners, they had a home Co Semi Final v North champions Ballina, and after a exciting encounter the South side went down by 2 points. In the B grade , South side CJ Kickhams Mullinahone drew the long straw once more, having to travel to the North Division to take on Toomevara. This was the week after they had to travel to the North of the County to play the under 15 semi final. After a close affair, with only a kick of the ball between the sides all through , the North champions prevailed by 2 points.In the C grade, South Champions Moyle Rovers also had to travel North , to take on Borrisokane in the County semi final, and after an exciting game, the South side had to give best to a strong Borrisokane outfit.In the D grade, after winning a great South title Carrick Davins drew the winning straw and had a home Co Semi Final v Toomevara in Davin Park. After an exciting game, the home side prevailed to advance to the County Final v Mid Champions JK Brackens.On Co final day JK Brackens prevailed after a exciting tussle. Credit to all involved with the young Davins side, who I saw at near hand improve during the year.

Under 15 Football

Since our last issue, the County Under 15A Football final took place in Killenaule, between south champions Cj Kickhams Mullinahone and mid champions JK Brackens. After a great game of Football the mid side prevailed 0.15 to 2.7.The mid side were a well balanced side with the vast majority up to the age, and this was clear to see on the night.Credit to the South Champions who fought until the final whistle, and can be very proud of the Divisional title in the bag this year.In the Under 15 C Football County Final which was played in Clerihan, Ballyporeen took on Clonmel Commercials. After a high scoring affair the County Title went to Ballyporeen by 7 points. Congrats to all involved.Both Under 13 and Under 15 hurling has now thrown in, with under 13’s on Tuesday nights and Under 15’s on Thursday nights.More about both age levels in the next issue. See the Tipperary Gaa website and local clubs social media sites for all the fixtures and changes to any fixtures.

Under 17 Hurling

In the Under 17 Mid/South/West Hurling League, South sides participated in the semi finals and finals in recent weeks. In the A grade, St Mary’s defeated JK Brackens, while Holy Cross got the better of South side Carrick Swan in the other semi final. Both semi finals were very competitive affairs , and both won by 2 points. In the Final Holy Cross proved too strong for St Mary’s on the night .In the B grade, St Patrick’s flew the South flag v Drom Inch in the semi final, but went down on the night to a strong outfit from the Ragg.This initiative of Mid /South West from the county board was a great success, and gave young players games without the players on county squads, and also a chance to play sides from other divisions . Something to build on in the future.Now it’s back to our own South Division Under 17 hurling with squads at full strength. These games takes place on Monday nights and as with under 13 and u15 we will expand more on these championships in the next issue. Keep an eye on the Tipperary website and club social media outlets for fixtures.As always get out and support our young players when you get a chance.
