Junior “B” Football Championship

On Sunday last we were in Ned Hall Park to play Clerihan in the latest round of the competition, (pictured are Tom O Gorman on the ball with Gavin Berry in support) , In a tight game the spoils were shared in this one 1-09 to 1-09, sadly this was not enough as we had to win the game to progress, that's it for junior B football for this year, well done and thanks to all the players for their efforts during the year and also to the mentors of this great bunch of lads, team and scorers from Sunday's game, Anthony Burke, Conor Mckenna, Noel O'Gorman, John Sheehy, Colin McEniry, Robbie Costigan (0-1), Ger Quinn, Daniel Moloney (0-1), Patrick Meehan (1-0), Cavan McKenna (0-1), Liam Howard, Darragh Howard, Tom O'Gorman, Conor O'Brien (0-1), Alan O'Connor (0-5), Subs Used: Eoin O'Neill, Brian Enright,

Ladies football

A Huge weekend ahead for our club ladies as Tipperary ladies intermediate football team face Tyrone in the All-Ireland final next Sunday, it is great to see five our club players on the panel,

As the ladies football club is twenty years old this year it would be fitting that our ladies would bring home the spoils on Sunday, great credit is due to all the mentors and chairman of the club for guiding all these fine young ladies to the level they are at (which is pretty high), the very best of luck to Aisling, Aisling, Rachel Emma, Roisin, and all the Tipperary team and management next Sunday, we all hope to be in Croker to support our fine players on the day.

Draw the joker

As we do every week we thank you for your great support for our game to raise badly needed funds for our club, next week's draw will be a little different as all our profits from next week's draw will go to a special cause, and that is the story of Evan Hickey a young man with a lot of Cahir connections including his uncles Benny, Michael, and Brian Hickey just to mention a few of the Hickey family who are very involved in our club, (Benny is our current senior manager and as you know gave all his playing days to our and his only club), Evan has a 22mm cyst on the pineal gland which is in the centre of his brain and unfortunately the technology or skill to remove the cyst is not in Ireland, without having a massive risk to his health or even life, there is only one facility that can do this kind of operation and that's in the United States, but as you can imagine this will cost big bucks,$196,400 to be exact, Evan and all his family and extended family are doing everything they can to raise the funds he needs and he is almost there, but not yet this is where Cahir GAA comes in, any money we make from the joker draw next week will go to Evan's fund, so next week we are asking you all to (if you can) to buy an extra ticket for just €2 to help Evan Hickey to reach his target and help him get his life back on track, you can read his full story on, or look up his Facebook page, thanks everyone, this week's winners: Ann Hearne, Margaret & Eamon Burke, Micheal Fahy, Gerry O'Donnell, & Tina O'Dwyer.

Blast from the past

This week we take a look at a couple of pictures from the 1977 along time ago now, the first two pictures are of the two teams that took part in the first ever parish league in 1977 enjoy them,

Picture below (also from1977) is the Cahir team who were crowned south junior hurling champion's, have a look and try and name them without looking at their names.
