With Kerry hurlers and camogie players, Brian Murphy, Jason Leahy and Sinead McKassey present everyone was put through the paces and there wasn’t an idle minute! 
Everyone had a great day. Great fun, new skills learned and a battle at the finish – what more could you ask for!

Tipperary Go-Games blitz end on a high note report by Jim Symons, Tipperary Camogie PRO
The continued success of the Tipperary Go-Games Development U8s & U10s ended their season with a record 20 clubs and over 250 girls taking part in the final Go-Games blitz of the season.

These games which have been ongoing throughout the year culminated with our biggest ever, on the final day in the county camogie grounds at the Ragg recently. 

Teams from the length and breadth of the county attended and on the basis of what we saw the future of Tipperary camogie is assured.

Without the tremendous commitment and organising skill of our county development officer Pat Sheridan the Go Games would not have been the success they were.

The county board would like to acknowledge Pat’s great work and also the commitment of Munster Camogie Development co-ordinator Deidre Murphy to Tipperary’s Go Games in establishing these games with the Tipperary County Camogie board. 

Last but by no means least thank you to all the club coaches, mentors and parents for preparing the girls and getting them to the Go Games venues. On Saturday we welcomed a new club to our Go Games Ballybacon/ Grange who had an enjoyable day they will remember for a long time.

The following clubs also participated in our final blitz, St.Marys Clonmel, Boherlahan, Borrisoleigh, Kilruane McDonaghs, Cahir, Toomevarra, Kildangan, Nenagh, Brian Borus, Holycross, Portroe, Thurles Sarsfields, Moycarkey, Knockavilla, Shannon Rovers, Burgess/Duharra, Annacarty and Drom&Inch.

All girls involved in both the U8s and the U10 games received their medals from County Development Officer Pat Sheridan, to close what has been a very enjoyable season for all concerned.
