Clonmel Celtic, who currently lead the Premier Division of the Tipperary Southern & District League, will be our fourth round (last 32) opponents in the Munster Junior Cup, after they defeated Clonmel Town 1-0 last Sunday.

The soccer club are now selling lines for the annual Christmas raffle. The fantastic prizes include three large Xmas hampers and a fuel hamper. Entry to the raffle is €2 per line and can be bought from team managers, committee members, players and are also in local pubs and shops. Thanks to everyone who supports this club fundraiser.
The club recently held a jersey presentation evening in O’Sullivan’s for our newest jersey sponsors. We are very grateful for the sponsorship received from these local businesses and we would encourage our members, players and families to support our sponsors whenever possible. Without the very generous assistance of all the club’s sponsors, it would be difficult for the club to keep growing and providing facilities for all our players.
Our newest jersey sponsors are Mulcair Credit Union, Jody Ryan Rearcross Quarries, Barry Window Systems, Vision ID, Joe Walsh Flooring, Nolan Carpets, Sweeney’s Filling Station & Mulcair Pharmacy. A sincere thank you to one and all.
If any other local businesses would like to get involved in sponsoring team jerseys, we would be delighted to hear from you.
