I would like to tribute to the late Pecker Dunne on this the Tipperary GAA website. Pecker who busked at all the big GAA matches in Thurles, just before the railway bridge on the Nenagh road was part of the great atmosphere on the big occasions. His wonderful presence and banjo playing was one of the reasons why many fans took that route to the stadium.

Thanks for the memories Pecker.

Found this article this morning. Young lad had a great game in u21B final last year scoring 1-5. Might be a coup for Borrisilleagh and could prove to be our 'Larry Tompkins'

Hurling blow for Kildare as Kenny looks set to make Tipp transfer



Conor Kenny has lodged a club transfer



Hurling Home



By Colm Keys

Friday December 21 2012

Kildare are poised to lose one of the county's most talented young hurlers to Tipperary.
Conor Kenny, match-winner when Kildare landed the Leinster U-21 'A' championship against Meath last July, is understood to be lodging a club transfer that will take him to Borris-Ileigh and enable him to play for Tipperary in 2013. Kenny's family has roots in Tipperary and the player is believed to be moving to the Premier County to live.
The indications are that he will follow up with an inter-county transfer that would allow him to play with Tipperary at some level in 2013. That will disappoint followers of hurling in Kildare and Celbridge as he is one of their brightest talents. His father Philip won an All-Ireland club medal with Borris-Ileigh in 1987 when he was full-forward on the team that beat Rathnure.
Kenny is still U-21 in 2013 and the feeling is that he would be well equipped to make Ken Hogan's Tipperary squad in that grade, if the opportunity arose.
Kenny hurls for Celbridge and has been a regular fixture on the Kildare senior team in recent years.
He was part of the Celbridge three-in-a-row team (2009-2011) in Kildare and is also one of the mainstays for Carlow IT, where he goes to college.
His imminent move, if he follows through as expected with an in inter-county transfer, will be a blow to hurling in an emerging county who feel they can't do without a player of his calibre if they are to thrive in the small-ball game.
Ironically, if Kenny does declare for Tipperary, it will be the reverse of some recent movements that have seen former Tipperary players John Enright and David Kennedy pitch in with the Lilywhites.
Kenny scored 1-5 as Kildare lost the All-Ireland U-21 'B' final to Roscommon last September and is renowned as a prolific forward. He helped Kildare to a Division 2B title last April.

Clonoulty v Sars in u21 final this Sunday. Sars beat Kilruane by 4 points in a tight affair where a 7 point swing the last ten minutes went in their favour while Clonoulty beat Killenaule 5-15 to 1-8.

Golden v Upperchurch in the B final. Upperchurch beat Kildangan by a point yesterday whereas Golden had beaten Skeheenarinky the weekend previous.


Happy xmas too all my contributors on this thread and a happy new year.

Yep. Been meaning to post that here.

They are playing UCC on Sunday the 6th of Jan (not certain of the time though think its 2pm). Its a fundraiser for work they are doing on the primary school in the village.

Should be an interesting one if the day stays fine. Decent stand in Emly but field wont be the greatest if we get any more rain.

AFAIK Lar is on the provisional 26 man panel along with Cummins, Eoin, Curran & John O'Brien. Bubbles and John Meagher also amongst the 26

Here is the panel

Quote:
New Tipperary manager Eamon O’Shea has announced his squad for the 2013 Allianz Hurling League campaign.

Any remaining doubts over the future of Tipp’s veteran stars such as Eoin Kelly, Lar Corbett and Brendan Cummins have been ended, with the trio, who were all part of the All-Ireland winning team back in 2001, included in the 26-man panel.

“Brendan Cummins is a role model, so is Eoin Kelly, players like that. (They are) really important players for Tipperary and I am really glad to have them and hope they are able to make some sort of contribution," O'Shea told GAA.ie at a press conference in Horse and Jockey last night.

The squad features a host of familiar faces, while O’Shea has added some new blood to the set-up with the selection of Loughmore Castleiney’s John Meagher and John O’Dwyer from Killenaule.

In addition, O’Shea has named nine extra players who will form an extended panel.

Lar Corbett
Brendan Cummins
Eoin Kelly

John O’Neill and John O’Keeffe, who were on the full squad last year, have been named in the extended panel, while former underage stars such as Jason Forde and his Kilruane MacDonaghs team-mate Séamus Hennessy have also been given the opportunity to impress by being named in the 35.

“The panel will be open and will always be open and that’s why when the club championships start, everybody will have a chance to play for Tipperary," O'Shea continued.

"We will be making sure that those who want to play, and know what it takes to play for Tipperary, get to play.”

Tipperary Panel 2013: B Cummins, D Gleeson, D Maher, P Stapleton, P Curran, M Cahill, J Meagher, T Stapleton, C O’Brien, C O’Mahony, Pádraic Maher, B Maher, J Woodlock, G Ryan, S McGrath, J Ryan, Patrick Maher, N McGrath, L Corbett, P Bourke, J O’Dwyer, E Kelly, S Callanan, S Bourke, J O’Brien, B O’Meara.

Extended Panel: S Curran, J Forde, T Hamill, T Hammersley, M Heffernan, S Hennessy, J O’Keeffe, J O’Neill, A Ryan.
