Cahir under 21 football team gave a great display in overcoming Upperchurch/Drombane in the County semi final in Cashel on Saturday last. The match ended in a draw and extra time was again required before Cahir finally won by 2 points on a score of 9 points to seven points. This was another brilliant performance from a young team and they now face Rockwell Rovers or Lorrha in the County final. The team and scorers were as follows: ; Rares Stocia, Liam Howard, Brendan Donaghy, Keelan Looby, Conor Casey, Dean Lonergan (0-2), James Walsh, Liam Casey (0-6), Niall McKenna (0-1), Aaron Murphy, Eoghann Quinlan, Mikey O?Connor, Cormac Looby, Ian Flannery, Brian McKenna, Darragh Howard, Eanna Heffernan, Davy English.

The draw the joker was held in Cahir House on Sunday night in front of a large crowd. There was great excitement with only 12 cards remaining on the board. Niamh Tuohy?s name was drawn from the drum but she did not win the jackpot and had to settle for ?100. Shane Cunnane, Pat Hennessy, Eileen Cunnane and Tom Walsh won the other prizes. This week?s draw is in the Hill Bar on Sunday night and the jackpot is now ?10,400.

Hard Luck to Caral Casey, Emma Buckley and Roisin Howard who were on the Tipperary Minor Camogie Team which was defeated by Cork in the All-Ireland semi-final at Kilmallock last Saturday on a scoreline of 3.13 to 2.13. Tipp were down 6 pts at half-time but came storming back in the 2nd half and drew level only for Cork to pounce for their third goal and although Tipp fought to the end it was not to be. The Cahir girls did the club proud in what was a fantastic game of Camogie. Well done to Sarah Burke and Emily O'Donovan who were part of the Tipperary U/14 Development Squad which recently played in Limerick.

Cahir U/12 Camogie team continued on their winning ways with a good win over Cashel. Despite Cashel going ahead after scoring a goal, the Cahir girls fought back with some fine scores from Rosanna Kiely and Katie Noonan.
