Inter-county action
Well done to the County Senior Football team on their victory over Limerick in the Munster Championship on Saturday evening last. Peter Acheson was the star of the show while Brian Mulvihill and Alan Campbell played their part in what was Tipperary’s first provincial championship game win since 2003. That occasion was in Walsh Park where our own Derek Browne, contributed 11 points in a win over Waterford. Golden memories of a dual All-Star.
Also on Saturday last at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick David McGrath was a member of the Tipperary team in the Junior game but unfortunately Tipp went down to Limerick in this one.

Community Games Camogie
Contesting the Community Cames camogie for the first time we played the South semi-final against our neighbours Fethard. It was a tough encounter and our girls settled into their stride and began to dominate and we produced some great scores from combined team play. This saw us qualify for the south final. Moyle Rovers 6-2 Fethard 0-1.
In the final Cashel before we knew it we were behind before Leah McGarry converted a free. This settled our girls and we notched up a goal from Eimear Mc Keown and Leah McGarry as well as points from McGarry and Aine Fitzgerald to leave the half time score 2-5 to 5-2 to Cashel. We knew that this game was far from over as we were competing well. Thanks to a great team effort we got back to within two points of Cashel with ten minutes to go. However, at the final whistle Cashel were the winners. Moyle Rovers 3-8 Cashel 7-4.

Ladies Football
The senior team contested the county League final against Brian Borus last Thursday evening in Monroe. Brian Borus dominated the opening exchanges and were four points up after seven minutes. Moyle Rovers opened their account with a Gillian O’Brien point.  Ann Marie McGrath had a goal to level the game on 17 minutes. Moyle then lost their way while Brian Borus added four points on the trot followed by a goal.  They led at halftime by 1-10 to 1-2. 
Barbara Ryan was introduced at half time and the second half saw a much improved performance and a spirited revival from Moyle Rovers. Ann Marie McGrath had a penalty and at the halfway stage the score of the game came from a well worked ball up the field for Shauna O’Brien finish to the net. Gillian O’Brien scored from the kick out to leave to leave just two points between the teams. Similar to the first half Moyle Rovers were unable to capitalise on the good run and Brian Borus came back into the game to close out with some points and a late goal.  Final score Brian Borus 2-21 to Moyle Rovers 4-4.
