Munster Final Fundraising

Posted in Hurling on November 26, 2010 by Imreoir

As we all know our Junior hurlers have reached their first ever Munster Final to be played in a fortnight’s time, Dec 12th.

The club committee have decided to do some fundraising to try to cover the costs involved, e.g. meal, gear etc. The club will hold a church gate collection on the weekend of 4th and 5th of December in both Cloneen and Drangan. It will also have collection buckets in O’Hallorans of Drangan, Noonan’s and Kielys of Cloneen and all the pubs in the parish for people to support the team and management in their quest for provincial honors.

If persons want to make a more substantial donation, please contact the club officials; Jimmy O’Brien(Chairman), Catherine Mockler(Secretary), Micheal Broderick(Treasurer) or any of the  club committee.

All support is greatly welcomed.

Liam McCarthy and his colleagues visit Drangan

Posted in Hurling on November 17, 2010 by Imreoir

Liam McCarthy and his colleagues; Dan Breen(Tipp Senior Hurling), the  Cross of Cashel(All Ireland U21 Hurling), Corn na Cásca(Munster U21 Hurling) arrived at St.Patricks National School Drangan yesterday to very enthusiastic group of kids.

To have two of the top forwards in the country, in Lar Corbett and Eoin Kelly as bearers of the fruits of Tipperary hurling in 2010 added to the excitement of the kids.

The cups and the hurlers visited Cloneen primary school last week.

It is a very worthwhile venture from the county board in bringing the Cup to all schools. For budding young hurlers and camogie players, getting to see the cups and possibly to get their hands on them must be a very satisfying experience. It is days like these that instills dreams into young kids of some day representing their county and possibly claiming that much sought after sliverware.

Well done to all the Tipp panel in giving up their time to bring the cup to youth of the county and also to the county board on this worthwhile exercise.
