A chairde, Congrats to all schools who have already reached County Finals which are scheduled to take place on June 5th/6th in Semple Stadium. It is very important that all schools adhere to certain formatting criteria when submitting team lists for this year's Finals. It makes life much easier for myself, Sports Editors and the people on The Tipperary Yearbook committee if all teams are typed using the same format. We have a huge volume of teams involved this year; 58 Teams in total. All the teams are printed in the Tipp Yearbook and also appear in the Tipperary Newspapers' special Co. Final Supplement/Spread. Please use the following criteria when sending in teams: Capital Letters for first letter of surname and christian name. Number each player (They must wear this number on the day). Name of School & competition precedes teamlist e.g. Kerry CBS Under 13 Roinn G Hurling Team: 1. Tom Ryan, 2. Joe Ryan, 3. Liam King, 4. Mike Flynn, etc. The format should be just like above i.e. Name of School Team and Competition followed by a colon and a space. Then it's number, full stop, player's name, comma and a space. Just like above: e.g. Kerry CBS Under 13 Roinn G Hurling Team: 1. Tom Ryan, 2. Joe Ryan, 3. Liam King, 4. Mike Flynn, etc. No brackets are necessary after numbers. Font should be Verdana Style and size 10. Please list school principal and teachers/coaches after your panel e.g. 17. Tom Ryan, 18. Mike Quinn, 19. Liam Dunne. Principal: Joe Doyle. Coaches: Liam Egan & Mary Jones. DO NOT SEND IN TEAMS IN VERTICAL FORMAT PLEASE. Please put name of school team in subject bar of email e.g. Kerry CBS Under 13 Roinn G Hurling Team. Please get your team lists in to me ASAP. All team lists should be emailed to me on the day your team qualifies for the finals. There are 29 finals this year with 58 different team lists. We want all the children's names to appear properly in reports for newspapers, website & Yearbook. If the formatting criteria is not adhered to, I’ll email you back to ask you to resend teams in the correct format. Your cooperation with this is much appreciated.

NEW INN B.N.S. MARCH ON (Match Report submitted by New Inn BNS)

There was yet another great contest in the Under 13 school league between New Inn and Ardfinnan. In the end New Inn came out on top with a margin of 3-8 to 2-1. It was a highly contested game with some great displays from Ardfinnans’ Cian O’Mahony who scored 1-1 and Andrew Browne who played very well. There were some great scores from New Inns’ Patrick Hickey and Adam Gallagher who both scored 1-3 each and a goal from Christopher Lonergan. In the second half which was just as good as the first it was a close battle all over the pitch. In the midfield Diarmuid English worked very hard and also scored a point for New Inn and just behind him in the backs Tom Downey, goalkeeper Kevin Cleary and John Marnane who scored a point also, held off some great attacks and Ardfinnans' Sean Óg Coughlan managed to get another goal despite their great efforts. The panel for Ardfinnan was Sean Og Coughlan, Andrew Browne, Eoin Wyse, Cian O’Mahony, Aoran Poliunas, Ben Doyle, Philip Betts, Liam Burke, Morgan Lambert, Kevin Burke, Shane Ryan, Sean Cunningham and Tadgh Carroll. The panel for New Inn was Kevin Cleary, Tom Downey, John Marnane, Diarmuid English, Patrick Hickey, Adam Gallagher, Jake Fitzgerald, Conor O’Neill, Christopher Lonergan and Joseph Lawrence. Well done to all!
