We had a brilliant night of action at the Tipperary Co-op Club league finals on Friday night last with a large crowd turning out to witness a great night of camogie action. We had 70 players between the ages of 4 and 12 participating with the standard of play right throughout the various age-groups being very impressive.

ONLY TWO WEEKS TO GO!! The Celtic Brothers (formerly known as The Willoughby Brothers) in Concert on Friday September 30th, 2022, Thurles Cathedral. The Celtic Brothers have entertained and endeared audiences for the past number of years and are delighted to bring their newly evolved show to the Cathedral. Their unique and recognisable sound includes a repertoire featuring a blend of Irish ballads, popular classics and contemporary songs.  Their passion for singing and performing, combined with a genuine closeness, stems from a childhood filled with music and singing, a love they carried with them throughout the years and into adulthood.  The Celtic Brothers have made a big impression on the national and international music scene and we look forward to a very enjoyable evening in the Cathedral of the Assumption on Friday, September 30th. Tickets available in the Parish Office, Cathedral Street (0504 22229), Bookworm, Liberty Square (0504 22257).
