GAA Club Games Postponed To Avoid Injury

Brendan Maher

The Tipperary County Board have correctly postponed six local club fixtures which were scheduled for next weekend, to prevent members of Liam Sheedy’s squad from incurring injury ahead of next month’s All-Ireland final .

The Tipperary senior hurling boss is understood to have met with County Board officials to discuss the situation and a decision was taken to postpone Sunday’s senior hurling finals between Borrisoleigh and Toomevara and Thurles Sarsfields and Drom-Inch. The four quarter-finals in the Seamus O Riain Cup involving Loughmore-CastleineyV Cashel King Cormacs, Templederry Kenyons V Portroe, Roscrea V Kilruane McDonaghs, and Éire Óg Nenagh V Lorrha/Dorrha have now been put on hold.

The postponements were welcomed by Tipperary’s under 21 manager, Tommy Dunne, who is preparing his side for Saturday’s Bord Gais Energy All-Ireland semi-final against Antrim in Tullamore.

Eight senior panellists, including Michael Cahill, Pádraic Maher,  Brendan Maher, Patrick Maher, and Noel McGrath, were all facing the prospect of playing two matches in just two days.
