The Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol Football AGM will take place in Hayes Hotel, Thurles, at 6.45pm on Tuesday 11th September.



Football fixtures will be sent out without delay after the AGM. Under 13 Football competitions will commence on the week ending September 21st. Under 11 blitzes will take place at the end of September. It is our intention that all Football Finals will be finished before the Halloween Mid Term Break this year.



The Tipperary Minor Hurlers showed wonderful fighting spirit in their All Ireland Minor Final clash with Dublin on Sunday. While not at their best, they fought their way back bravely in the second half. The panel contains many players who played on the Tipp Primary Game Hurling Teams as recently as 2008. We wish the panel and management the very best in their replay on September 30th.
