On Saturday morning last our U12 Hurling participated in the County Final
of the division 4 in Semple stadium.  Our boys played great hurling on
the day but lost out a scoreline of 2-2 to 0-5 in the quarter- final.

Next out on Saturday was our Minor Hurling who took on Mullinahone in
the South Semi Final. It was a fantastic competitive game of hurling,
with very little between the sides.  Our defence was managed well
between full Back Eoin O Connor & Centre Back Cathal Quigley, with
Alec Owen scoring some great points and Michael Delahunty scoring the goal.
Unfortunately it was in the closing minutes that Mullinahone scored two points
to give them a one point victory. Well done to panel of players and
their Mentors


Congratulations to Cathal Quigley & Philip Quirke who were on the
Minor Tipperary Team who won the All Ireland Semi final.  Best of luck
to the Boys in the All Ireland Final against Dublin on Sunday 18th .

Commiserations to Tipperary Senior Hurling who were defeated by
Kilkenny in the All Ireland Final  on Sunday last.


Best of luck to our U14 who will have played the south Final of the
hurling on Tuesday night. Best of luck boys.

Best of luck to the Intermediate Ladies football team who take on the
Cork Champions in the Munster Semi Final this weekend


U14 girls were beaten by Cahir in the semi-final of the County
championship in Ardfinnan on Friday night last. After a closely fought
first half there was little between the teams but in the second half
the greater experience of the Cahir team told and they ran out easy
winners in the end. Certainly the gap of almost four months since
their last competitive game did not do the Moyle Rovers girls any
favours - however they can be proud of their efforts against a much
stronger Cahir side. Its a pity that the season is now over for this
group of girls - unfortunately they only got to play three matches
this year which is a poor return for almost six months of training and
is certainly something which it is hoped that those who govern ladies
football in the County will address in the future as it is becoming
increasingly difficult to keep girls playing in the Under 16 age group
and beyond.

The panel was as follows:
Claire Moore, Amy Gilman , Shania Dowling, Cliona Collins, Dearbhla
Fitzgerald, Andrea Hyland, Aoife Power , Everena Everard , Lorraine
Williams, Bronagh McGrath , Sarah McDermott , Eimear O Donoghue ,
Megan Shanahan , Michelle McMeel , Aisling o Donnell , Roisin Mulcahy
, Natasha Quirke, Chloe Boland , Rachel Delahunty ,Kayleigh Tobin ,
Jenny Everard , Ceire Walsh , Chelsea Holden , Rachel Timlin , Sinead
Cosgrove , Ciara O Loughlin , Orla Burke.


Our under 12s had a very enjoyable afternoon in Ballingarry last
Sunday week. We took part in a nine team competition. Drawn in the
larger group of five we played on the basis of accumulated scores.
After four games against Callan, Gortnahoe, Urlingford, and
Ballingarry. We were edged out of a final spot by one score . We won
all our games except Callan. Well done girls on a wonderful
afternoon's Camogie. A. Big thank you to Ballingarry club for
organising and the hospitality on the day.

U8/10 Camogie
Underage camogie is alive and well in South Tipperary as 97 girls
participated in our U8/10 Go Games Camogie Blitz in Monroe on Sat
September 3rd. Carrick Swans and St. Mary's were our guests bringing
along two teams each and Cahir had three teams. It was wonderful to
see the main pitch with four games of flowing camogie and each team
supported by their families and friends.  Our young referees were kept
on their toes and we thank Kate Delahunty, Sarah Everard, Hazel
Shanahan and Caroline Quirke for the wonderful job they did. All games
were very competitive on the day and very little separated any of the
teams with goals galore. Before going home all the players got a
goodie bag. We thank Helen Breen and her helpers, Rowena, Shania,
Megan, Deirbhile and Áine, for organising these. Many people helped
out on the day in preparing the pitch and managing the teams. Thanks
to Andrew Dowling, Paudie Everard, Karen Fitzgerald, Mairead Kelly,
Caitríona Mc Grath, Áine O'Donnell and Olivia Shanahan. Thanks also to
Pat O'Connor who was available throughout the day. Our U8 team was
Gráinne O'Donnell, Eimear Mc Keown, Alana Dowling, Tara Mc Grath,
Orlaith Breen, Nicole Delaney, Megan Looby, Carmen Sorohan and Grace
O'Dwyer. The under 10 team was Louise Norris, Erin Mitten, Leah
McGarry, Makayala O'Donnell, Karen Meehan, Sophie Delaney, Sorcha
O'Brien, Sarah O'Connor, Fatima Sorohan, Ellen Buckley, Yasmin Quirke
and Orla Ryan. Well done to all the girls who acquitted themselves so
well in each of their games!
Training Continues every Friday evening in Purcell's field at 6p.m.
New Arrival
Congratulations to Sinéad Hickey, our registrar, on the arrival of
baby Lauren. We hope to see her on our camogie team in the future!
In-house League
Following on the success of last year's in house competition it was
decided to do the same this year. The girls were divided into four
teams. The league started last Saturday. Danni di Ruzza's team had a
two point victory over Sarah Everard's team and Hazel Shanahan's team
beat Laura Grace's team in the other game. All girls are asked to be
in Purcell's field at 6 o'clock on Friday for the next round.
