Club Plan: Our Five Year Club Plan 2016-2020 was officially unveiled in the Séamus Ó Riain Centre last Wednesday night.  Thanks to all our guest speakers – County Chairman Michael Bourke, County Development Officer PJ Maher, and especially to former Moneygall and Tipperary hurler John Gleeson, who officially launched the Plan.  It was also great to see two of the victorious Moneygall Intermediate team of 1949 in attendance, Gerry Maher and Joe Hayes.  Anybody who would like a copy of the Plan can contact any of the club officers, and it will also soon be available to view on our website.

Volunteers: A big thanks to everyone who provided refreshments or who helped out with organising or catering for any of our recent events – our Club Plan launch, the minor team presentation night, Br. Jimmy Gleeson’s month’s mind mass, and our recent senior challenge matches.
