The HSE Community Games Munster Finals were held recently in the University of Limerick. Co. Tipperary came away with 2 Gold and 6 Silver medals. The gold medals were won by St. Peter’s & Paul’s in the Girls Under 12 Skittle and by Ballingarry in the Under 16 Tag Rugby. Our silver medals came in the Under 11 Tag Rugby Ballingarry, Under 13 Hardcourt Tennis Ballina, Under 13 Boys Rounders Grangemockler, Under 14 Skittle St. Peter’s & Paul’s, Under 14 Camogie Cahir and Under 16 Girls Basketball Clerihan. Despite the torrential rain all the teams who took part thoroughly enjoyed the finals and the first class facilities that were made available to them all day long in the University.
Co. Tipperary hosted this year’s Munster Games and with the help of the Munster Board it was a very successful Games.

Fabien Jones, St. Flannan’s co-ordinated Under 11 Hurling, Willie Jones co-ordinated Soccer, Mary O’Shea Ballingarry co-ordinated Tag Rugby which was refereed by June Ryan from St. Flannan’s. Corina Kennedy Roscrea co-ordinated Hardcourt Tennis, Enda Mullally Roscrea worked with the Munster Finance Committee, Mick England Roscrea sat on the Appeals Committee which thankfully was the least active place to be on the day. Martin O’Keeffe Cahir umpired Camogie, Mary Moroney Silvermines refereed Rounders with Rebecca & Laura from Roscrea who umpired these games. Adrian Anglim co-ordinated Skittles and Peggy Colville Fethard, Joan, Claire & Carol Hogan from St. Flannan’s worked hard throughout the day in the Office.
