Our U20 county footballers were in action against Cork last Saturday evening but sadly were second in this contest, club man Stephen Grogan (pictured) was part of that panel, Cork were their opponents and they ran out easy winners 1-20 to 0-08, and Stephen was just back from holidays and went straight to the game, well done to all the players especially Stephen and we hope next year they will fair better.

Celtic Challenge

Our club was represented on the south Tipperary hurling team by a brother of the young man we just spoke about above, this time it was Kevin Grogan (pictured below in action no. 12) who lined out for South Tipperary V Offaly in the Celtic challenge quarter final in Birr last Saturday, Kevin done his part for the Tipperary Side who earned a semi-final spot as they overcame Offaly 4-11 to 1-10, well done to all the players and our man Kevin.

It's Summer Time

Last year we started its summer time campaign where we asked you all to take a picture of you in a Cahir GAA top and send in to us, it was a big success and for that reason we decided to do it all again, So no matter where you are, from Ardfinnan to America, Ballylooby to Bali make sure you bring your Cahir top of any kind (senior, juvenile, camogie and ladies football all are welcome) with you and get snapping and send them in to us at the email address at the end of our notes, or to our Facebook page thanks everyone.
