Congratulations on opening a Tipperary GAA Thread here, it was a mistake to limit it to 2016. As you leave yourself open to someone else opening a 2017 thread next October.

If it were possible to change the title and omit the year the thread would run for 10,000 posts just like all the other counties.

This hurling business really doesn't matter that much does it....

Tipperary goalkeeper talks about how a deep personal loss turned his world upside down two days before the 2011 All-Ireland senior hurling semi-final.

I read that in Cummins book alright. I've the utmost respect for that man. Worth noting he never lowered himself to the digs of Babs. Always criticised the situation and not the man

That is very true - that takes class.

Would this be in line with other counties...looks like a huge amount to me.

Though we're one of the few counties along with Galway and cork who field teams competitive in both codes..

Are we really though?

Bit of a myth to be honest, the reality is our footballers are a Division 3 team who have beaten no one of note in their province ( 2 wins in the last 6 years against Limerick and Waterford), yes we have enjoyed some great success underage but the reality is our seniors are as far from success as they have ever been, and that is not likely to change any time soon.

I would qualify that by saying success is relative and compared to the doldrums Tipp Football was in...it's in a far better state now...

Commercials won their first Munster Senior Club title
- there is regular underage success, as in getting to finals and sometimes getting silverware,
-the senior Tipp footballers have taken some scalps in the last few years that they would never have gotten to play before. They're are definitely not as far away as they have ever been - do they have the budget, tradition, and current set up of kerry, dublin, tyrone, donegal and others - no. But, there's been huge improvements but they have had some serious set backs before this season has begun through losing players . And, you're right if success is just senior silverware then it will be a long time in coming...

i'll qualify that by saying that if you split the football teams into 2 halves we'd just about be in the better half..

They've beaten some decent sides and reached the last round of qualifiers ( last 12 in AI) a couple of years back. They've certainly come on quite a bit from the days of being a lower half of the table div 4 side and going out after two games in the championship every summer.

I agree with you though that to truly breakthrough they need to claim a championship win over one of the big two in Munster.

Couple of other counties have released financial statements recently so it doesn't seem wildly out of line with figures from other counties.

Also it's not just the senior teams - U21, minor and junior teams can add a fair chunk especially if they go on a good way in their respective competitions. Some county (I think it's Limerick but not sure) were saying their expenses had increased because a high number of players had to have surgery in the one year.

Time we got behind Clonmel Commercials in their preparations for the quarter final with Ballyboden/St.Endas.

Or maybe they will just come in under the radar!
