|Munster Senior Semi Defeat! Limerick 1-14 Tipp 0-14.|
Disappointment for our Senior Camogie panel and management after a 3 point defeat to Limerick in the Ragg. Tipp had hoped to reach the Munster final this year and have a 'crack' at Cork to fight for Munster silverware but it was not to be. Limerick were the team to get a goal which proved decisive as Tipperary were crowded out and although always in this game failed to raise the all important 'green flag'. A fine crowd turned out for this fixture and saw a very closely fought game.
Tipp have a month to re-group and have a home draw v Cork in the Ragg on June 10th.
|Munster Under 16A Final|
Tipperary Under 16A girls lose to Rebels in Munster Camogie Final!
Tipperary were beaten by a slick cork outfit in the Munster Under 16A Final played in Ballyagran GAA pitch in Co. Limerick on Sunday, April 2nd. Cork started this match much stronger than Tipperary and led by 7 points to 2 points until a Tipperary resurgence mid-way through the first half. A 45m and a sideline from Emer McGrath and an over-the-shoulder point from Rosanna o Donnell keep Tipperary in this match early on until a Rosanna o Donnell goal brought us back into this game. Tipperary missed several goal chances towards the end of the first half but then 'Player of the Match' Ellen Murphy goaled on the 29th minute for Cork after a ball slipped through to the net. The half-time score was 1-8 to 1-5 and Cork were gifted a second goal after the restart when a long range free dropped to the Tipperary net. Rosanna forced a second Tipperary goal and Emer McGrath hit a 'screamer' over the crossbar as Tipperary fought valiantly but the match finished with a five point win for Cork. Captain Gemma Fox and Emer Heffernan gave relieving clearances during the game while Sinead Ryan and Grace o Toole won the mid field battle early in this game. Important brave blockdowns by Sorcha Ryan and Lauren Ryan, who replaced Sarah Bourke at throw-in due to illness, kept the Cork full forward line to a low score. Aine Slattery's confidence grew as the game progressed and her long clearances and puck-outs were a feature. Roll-on July when the All Ireland Championship begins and best of luck to all girls undertaking the Junior Cert exams. Thanks to CENTRA shops in Tipperary who have sponsored playing gear for our underage camogie players!

|Littlewoods National League Div. 1 Round 2 |
Tipperary 1-12 Cork 2-14.
Tipperary failed to keep the early first half momentum going when Cork came from behind to win this Round 2 game of the National League played in W.I.T. Carriganore, Co. Waterford. Tipperary were forced by the bad weather to play this 'home-fixture' in Waterford due to the Ragg being unplayable on Saturday March 4th. Cork started well with the wind and led by 5 points to 2 points when a Miriam Campion shot was saved by Cork and Megan Ryan goaled. Things were looking good for Tipperary at half-time having led by 1-7 to 0-9 with wind advantage to come. Roisin Howard, who scored 3 points from play against Cork, had her effort after 16 minutes just rise over the crossbar.
In the second half Cork's Karina Mackey goal put them 1-10 to 1-8 up but Tipperary levelled again after points from Miriam Campion and Nicole Walsh. Cork's McCarthy got their second goal with a shot from a tight angle along with several Orla Cotter frees for Cork finished Tipperary's hopes of victory. Tipperary Camogie would like to thank our new Jersey sponsors TippFM and Premier Kitchens. Premier Kitchens Clonmel were the winners of the Golden Ticket competition where businesses et cetera could pay €100 each to be in a draw to be Tipperary Camogie Sponsors 2017!
