NOBODY in the Tipperary set-up paid any heed to what was going on in Bruff even though they needed Wexford to account for Limerick to have a chance of reaching the Quarter-Finals of the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship.
Manager Brian Boyle had emphasised to his players that they could not control what was going on in the other Group 2 game. They needed to beat Offaly, who were lying in third at the beginning of Saturday’s action, by three points or more to jump ahead of the Faithful women.
Of course if Limerick, who started the day in fourth, could get the better of Wexford, they would snatch the last qualification berth but they were unable to make home advantage pay and so it was Tipp who were the big winners, their first victory of the series seeing them leapfrog over Limerick and Offaly and gaining the prized berth on score difference with the three sides level on points.
It was agonising for Offaly in particular, as they would have advanced had they scored one more point. But it was Tipp that prevailed by virtue of their 3-13 to 2-13 triumph at St Brendan’s Park, Birr.
In Group 1, Kilkenny were far too strong for Dublin and now join Cork in the Semi-Finals but despite that setback, Dublin also made the last six as Galway held off an obdurate Clare unit.
As a result, the Quarter-Finals, which will be televised live from Semple Stadium on RTÉ on Saturday August 5th, will see Galway play Tipperary while Wexford will take on Dublin.
Despite the countless possibilities and potential external distractions, Tipperary remained focussed on their performance.
“We were disappointed that the Championship hadn’t gone the way we wanted it to and (this) was about rectifying that and getting a result” said Boyle. “That’s all we had in our heads.
“We didn’t track any other results. We just wanted to look after ourselves.”
Ciardha Maher scored two goals for the visitors and Orla O’Dwyer another, but Offaly would never back off. Siobhán Flannery (who finished with 1-8) and Tina Hannon with a wonder goal kept Offaly in touch. Orla McEniry saved Michaela Morkan’s second-half penalty however and with Cáit Devane registering five points and Megan Ryan three from play, Tipp did just enough.

Tipp started superbly, 3 points in 1st two minutes, Cait Devane Megan ryan and ereena Fryday . Offaly settled onto the game. Goal for ciardha maher on 15th minute was cancelled by Siobhan flannery Offaly goal. Megan ryan covered great ground around middle. Orla dwyer scored Tipp s 2nd goal on 29 minutes but Tina Hannon , Offaly's speedy wing forward who won all Ireland club glory with Derry's Shaughneil scored within 30 seconds. Halftime - level on 2-6 each. Tipperary's workrate was well up on previous outings. 
What a start to 2nd half for Tipp , goal by Ciardha maher after 1 minute. Orla mcEniry made a fabulous body save moments later. Further points for Cait Devane 2, Orla Dwyer 2 , Roisin Howard, Ciardha Maher put Tipp on the 'driving seat' . It was a very nervous end to this match for both players and management as Offaly dropped in 2 frees and only narrowed our 5 point lead down to 3 points at the finish . Roisin Howard won some crucial balls up front when Tipperary under pressure. Tipperary backs closed down Offaly attacks time after time crowding the Offaly shooter. All our players gave 100% with subs Mary Ryan, Mairead Teehan , Mairead Eviston Gemma Grace and Kelley Lenihan giving fresh momentum. 
Final Score: 
Offaly 2-13
Tipperary 3-13
With Wexford defeating Limerick in Limerick to finish second in Group 2, Tipperary have just squeezed into the All Ireland Quarter final by a 1 point better score difference over Offaly. 
Roll on the quarter final v Galway. Tipp girls just hitting form!!

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!

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!

Tipperary Minor Camogie team were beaten 3-5 to 1-8 on FEBRUARY 25TH in the Ragg Camogie Grounds in a very hard fought tussle where a few breaks for Cork proved decisive. Tipperary started this game very well and dominated the first 20 minutes. Tipperary led by 3 points to 1 when they were awarded a penalty which was unfortunately saved. Cork responded well by going into a half time 1-2 to 0-4 lead. After half-time, Cork upped the tempo and took a 4 point lead. Tipperary then began a comeback bringing Cork back to a one point game. Two fortuitous Cork goals put daylight between the teams but Tipperary kept up the pressure and were rewarded with a late goal.
