Tailteann Games – Schools Interprovincial

Saturday in Santry saw Jack Hickey represent the province of Munster at the Tailteann Games and in a highly competitive event he produced two great performances.  In the 400mts he clocked 54.69 to finish 8th overall and close to a Pb for Jack.  He also ran the 3rd leg of the 4 x 400mts relay for Munster with the team finishing 3rd overall.  Well done Jack.

National Track & Field League

Lorraine Healy represented the County at the National Track and Field League in Athlone.  Tipperary Athletics are competing in the Premier Division of both Ladies and Men’s events which have some of the best athletes in the Country competing.  Lorraine competed in the 1,500mts to finish 4th in a time of 5.14. Well done Lorraine.  The next round takes place in Templemore on Sunday 30th July.


All our athletes now have a well-deserved break from training and competition for the next couple of months.  Enjoy the break and we will see our secondary school athletes back sometime in August with the rest returning in September.

Street Lights

News filtered through over the past week that following a successful application from Tipperary County Council and the Club monies have been granted by the Government to install public lighting outside the Sportsfield.  This is very welcome news for all involved but special mention must go to our young athletes Blathnaid Lloyd, Amy Reddan and Saoirse Doran who composed a letter about the lack of lighting and sent it to all public representatives within the area, to our TD’s and to the Taoiseach amongst others.  Their effort has certainly paid off.  Well done girls.
