Julieanne Named as Joint Tipperary Captain:

A huge congratulations to Julieanne Bourke who have been named as joint captain of the Tipperary Senior Camogie team for the Littlewoods National League.

It’s a fantastic honour for Julieanne and a just reward for dedication, her attitude towards the game and her outstanding playing ability. We would like to wish Julieanne and the second joint captain Grace O’Brien the very best of luck in their role of leading the Premier County.

They have got off to the perfect start after registering big tallies in their opening matches which resulted in comprehensive victories over Down and Offaly respectively.
