Agreed,Killarney. It´s a winner move. Ryan has a great pedigree ,is v. experienced and will motivate these boys to think of
3 or more years at the top table.The mistake made in 2011 and 2012 of not sealing up in terms of continuity and building on
the 2010 AI is not going to be repeated. A figure of authority is the foundation-stone of any great team and continuity (see
the stripey boys from East of Urlingford) in Management is a massive feature-once you have the material to work with.
Ryan is smart enough to continue with a philosophy of playing that will be 1:1 with O´Shea´s achievement.

If this new system works it could go on for years. We need continuity as 2011 & 2012 proved. Great to see people being willing to experiment and in my view to have the ability and flexibility to learn from past mistakes. Well EO'S and the County Board.

How 'Bubbles' got his nickname

His father says: "As a child, John was quite a hairy baby and so people began to call him Bubbles, as in Michael Jackson's chimp".

Bubbles confirmed that the story was true.

International Rules Preview: Ireland v Australia. Sat November 22. Patersons Stadium, Perth, 9.45am (Live on TG4 and Channel 7)

Some people say it should be put down like an old dog and others will argue that the competition, 30 years old in 2014, should be nurtured and revived to its former glory. Whatever your view, the chances are you stand firmly in one corner or the other - because, it seems, everyone has an opinion on the International Rules.
Those calling for its abolition have had plenty of fuel for their fires over the last few years, with Ireland's 101-point destruction of an all-Indigenous side last year the nadir for a competition that in the mid 2000s was capable of attracting crowds of over 80,000 to Croke Park and 60,000 in Melbourne. The margin was 65 in 2011, when Ireland won both Tests in front of poor crowds in Australia against a young and inexperienced home side.

Earley has confirmed that he has a fully fit squad to choose from, with injury concerns over Darren Hughes and Cathal Cregg abating this week. He will decide on a 23-man match day squad on Friday evening, meaning two players won't tog out for the Test. One of the disappointed players will be Paddy O'Rourke or Niall Morgan, with Earley confirming that he won't need two goalkeepers on the night.
Having selected a squad of 24, and with Nat Fyfe definitely ruled out with a shoulder injury, Clarkson has no major selection issues. other than to figure out where his players are best suited to playing on a different pitch and with a different ball.
Australia have never lost and International Rules Test as the venue, and their motivation to continue that run must surely be to re-assert their professional pride and to halt a losing streak that now stretches to four Tests and two series.
Ireland: Colm Begley (Laois), Colm Boyle (Mayo), Seán Cavanagh (Tyrone), Cathal Cregg (Roscommon), Mattie Donnelly (Tyrone), Finian Hanley (Galway), Pearse Hanley (Brisbane Lions), Darren Hughes (Monaghan), Lee Keegan (Mayo), James McCarthy (Dublin), Ciaran McDonald (Tipperary), Neil McGee (Donegal), Chrissy McKaigue (Derry), Kevin McKernan (Down), Kevin McLoughlin (Mayo), Conor McManus (Monaghan), David Moran (Kerry), Niall Morgan (Tyrone), Ross Munnelly (Laois), Michael Murphy (Donegal) (capt), Colm O'Neill (Cork), Pádraig O'Neill (Kildare), Paddy O'Rourke (Meath), Aidan O'Shea (Mayo), Aidan Walsh (Cork) (vice-captain).
Australia: Grant Birchall (Hawthorn), Travis Boak (Port Adelaide), Luke Breust (Hawthorn), Patrick Dangerfield (Adelaide), Duston Fletcher (Essendon), Brendan Goddard (Essendon), Robbie Gray (Port Adelaide), Brent Harvey (North Melbourne), Luke Hodge (Hawthorn), Kieren Jack (Sydney Swans), Steve Johnson (Geelong), Jarrad McVeigh (Sydney Swans), Sam Mitchell (Hawthorn), Leigh Montagna (St Kilda), Nic Naitanui (West Coast), Nick Riewoldt (St Kilda), Tom Rockliff (Brisbane Lions), Joel Selwood (Geelong) (capt), Brodie Smith (Adelaide), Nick Smith (Sydney Swans), Harry Taylor (Geelong), Jobe Watson (Essendon), Chad Wingard (Port Adelaide).

International Rules Test: Ireland 46 (2-9-7) Australia 56 (0-17-5)

Australia's accuracy was a joy to behold and there was a real danger at the that point that the game would turn into a rout. Nick Riewoldt added two more kicks in the second quarter and the gap was out to 28 at half-time.
To their credit, Ireland were a different animal in the second half and put the Aussies under intense pressure, dominating the midfield and forcing a very different game of football. A Darren Hughes goal six minutes into the second half, reducing the gap to 41-14, ignited the the visitors' challenge and they had the gap back to 16 by the end of the third quarter, with Ulster men Conor McManus, who finished with four overs and as Ireland's man of the match, his Monaghan team-mate Hughes, and Mattie Donnelly leading the way with some superb scores.

Ireland hit 18 points (1-4) without reply in a super burst of fire in the third quarter, McManus adding two overs shortly after Hughes slotted a low shot past 39-year-old Dustin Fletcher following a neat move, while Kevin McKernan lofted a fine shot over the bar from a tough angle. Australia led by 46-30 at the three-quarter mark and with so much momentum behind them, there was a real sense within the huge Irish crowd in the stadium, that a comeback was on.
The gap was down to 13 when Colm Begley snatched another over, but Australia hit back with scores from Kieran Jack and the superb Chad Wingard.
Ireland snatched a second six-point goal four minutes from the end, Nick Smith smashing the ball into his own net after Michael Murphy had forced a fine save from Australian goalkeeper Fletcher, who had a fine game on his seventh International Rules appearance. McManus sent over his fourth score soon after and the gap was back to 10, but Ireland ran out of road in the end and the home side held on to win an enjoyable contest.
The overwhelming feeling after - disappointment aside - was that it was an excellent game and it was just a pity that there isn't a second Test to look forward to in a week's time. With a sell-out crowd, a keen contest played in a great spirit, and with the players on both sides seemingly treasuring the chance to play for their country, it looks like a concept the GAA and the AFL will fight hard to keep alive.

Scorers for Ireland: C McManus 12 (0-3-0), D Hughes 7 (1-0-1), Nick Smith 6 (Own Goal), M Donnelly 6 (0-2-0), M Murphy 3 (0-1-0), K McKernan 3 (0-1-0), C Begley 3 (0-1-0), S Cavanagh 2 (0-0-2), C O'Neill 1 (0-0-1), P Hanley 1 (0-0-1), R Munnelly 1 (0-0-1), D Moran 1 (0-0-1).

2013 All Stars 10-7 2014 All Stars 5-5
Paddy McBrearty has spoken candidly about being the "last resort" in the Donegal full-forward line. Still only 21, the Kilcar man was resigned to the position of impact substitute for most of this past season.

McBrearty was the pick of the 2014 All-Stars as they went down in Saturday's game in the Irish Cultural Centre in Massachusetts. The game was a drab affair as players were spooked by a severe injury to former Kerry U21 Kieran O'Connor in the curtain raiser. The New York player broke a leg and tore ankle ligaments in a fall as they drew with Boston 1-9 apiece in a heated encounter.

Speaking about his Donegal ambitions, McBrearty said: "I was going in there at a time that Colm McFadden and Michael Murphy were probably the two predominant forwards in Ulster. I was kind of the wee sideshow over in the other corner. So it's just about patience and waiting for your time to come. I was happy to do that; we were winning games.
I go out for my club, I would kick 10 points and then come back for Donegal, score nothing, and they'd say 'Why is he doing it for the club?' It is frustrating. People are often saying it to me 'Why the feck are you doing it for the club? (and not the county)."

McBrearty is delighted his Kilcar manager, Rory Gallagher, agreed to succeed Jim McGuinness but wasn't certain he would put his name forward for the role. "It was a big decision for him to go for it, I didn't actually think he'd go for it. Fair play to him for going for it because they are big shoes to fill after Jim: three Ulsters, an All-Ireland and getting to another final. A massive achievement after where we were in 2010 but Rory had a part to play in that tradition.

"Rory's well up to it, he has all the capabilities to do very well. It's a matter of getting back training and focusing again. One of our main objectives is to stay in Division 1."

Scorers 2013 All-Stars B Brogan 3-0 A O'Shea 2-2; M Dunne 1-2; C McManus, T Kernan 1-1 each; S Cavanagh, D Walsh 1-0 each; C Boyle 0-1.

Scorers 2014 All-Stars: K Higgins 2-0; P McBrearty 1-2, S Walsh 1-1 (1-0, pen); N Gallagher 1-0; R McHugh, D Moran (free) 0-1 each.

2013 ALL-STARS (13-a-side): R Hennelly (Mayo); D Wylie (Monaghan), R O'Carroll (Dublin); C Boyle, L Keegan, A O'Shea, S O'Shea (all Mayo); D Walsh (Kerry), S Cavanagh (Tyrone) B Brogan (Dublin); C McManus (Monaghan), M Dunne (Cavan), T Kernan (Armagh). Sub: K McDermott (Boston).

2 Tipp clubs call for the introduction of extra-time for all inter-county championship games.

At the end of a year when our county hurlers lost the AI final replay to Kilkenny, Burgess and JK Brackens have both submitted motions to the forthcoming convention seeking universal extra-time.
Burgess specify that two 10-minute halves should be added for knockout games.

With the 2015 Congress open to playing rule changes, Tipperary clubs have been busy putting forward suggestions.

Newport want the introduction of an advantage rule in hurling where a referee should be able to decide "after five or six seconds" whether a player has gained an advantage or not;
Newport are also seeking 35-minute inter-county U-21 matches.

Ballyhale Shamrocks collected 8th Leinster title with a win Offaly's Kilcormac-Killoughey terms it's been Kilkenny's year - yet again.
There was a Tipperary connection Andy Moloney managing the team and Colm Bonnar coaching.
Ballyhale's record is incredible. Before Sunday they'd won 7 Leinsters 5 All Irelands, when they get out of Kk they tend to go all the way.
I didn't think that Shefflin had as critical an impact as some reports suggested. A few trademark points certainly caught the eye but he was anonymous for a lot of the game and showed up best in the extra-time when Offaly's high-energy effort had run out of steam.
Reflecting on Ballyhale's achievements what about our own miserable record in the club series. Roscrea won the inaugural club championship back in 1971/72 but only two other Tipperary clubs have matched that deed: Kilruane in '86 and Borrisoleigh in '87.
It's an abysmal record for a county of our hurling tradition. Galway boasts 13, Cork 11 Kilkenny 10. Offaly 4 outshines Tipp.
These are statistics that must raise serious issues about our club championship. Since Borrisoleigh beat Rathnure in that 1986/87 final we've rarely even got close to honours. Toomevara in their golden era from 1992 to 2008 harvested an amazing eleven county titles - but no All Ireland. They got close twice. In the '05 final they lost out narrowly to Sarsfields of Galway on a day when corner back, Paul Meagher, was harshly sent off. That was a missed opportunity.
They missed the boat tantalisingly again in February '07 when losing a semi-final to Ballyhale Shamrocks. They were without John O'Brien that day and had Tommy Dunne sent off. Isn't it significant that dismissals cost them on both occasions; discipline is important in the chase for glory? Not reaching the Promised Land during that great era must be a nagging regret for the 'greyhounds'. It also reflects on Tipperary club hurling.
Other than Toomevara I suppose Cashel K.C. were close to the peak in early 1992 with those epic games against Kiltormer. The Galway champs eventually got through and coped comfortably with Birr in the final. It could have been Cashel.
Thurles Sarsfields have inherited Toomevara's role as Tipperary's premier club but are they any closer to ending that long All Ireland famine? Sarsfields have won five of the last ten Tipperary championships but their record outside the county is poor. They did win a Munster title in 2012 but then fell to Kilcormac/Killoughey in the All Ireland semi in early '13.
Given the age profile of the Sarsfields team they should secure many more county titles in the years ahead but ultimately, like Toomevara, their place in history will be judged by their Munster and All Ireland record.

2014 Munster GAA Awards Hall of Fame Winners Announced

Tipp hurling hero, Liam Devaney, and Waterford star footballer, Jim Wall, are the latest Munster legends to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, it was announced today. Their awards at the Munster Awards Gala Dinner on Sat Dec 13 in Dromoland Castle, Clare.

Tipp and Borris-Ileigh's Liam Devaney was a vital member of the great team of the late 1950s and 1960s. Uniquely he played in every position bar full back.
Texaco hurler of the Year in 1961 and won 5 All Ireland senior medals, 9 National League medals, 8 Munster senior medals, 6 Oireachtas medals, 3 Railway Cup medals and 2 All Ireland and Munster minor medals.
He played with Borris-Ileigh from 1952 to 1974 winning a county ch in 1953. He will be remembered as one of the most skilful forwards of his generation and his contribution to Tipp in an era of unprecedented success for the county will always be remembered.

The Nire's Jim Wall is synonymous with football in Waterford. He has given a lifetime of service to football in his club and county. He also played with Munster and won a Railway Cup medal alongside many Munster football luminaries in 1972. He played football for Waterford from 1968 to 1974, a highlight of that period being Waterford's spell in Division 1 of the National Football League in the 1971-72 league season. He captained his beloved Nire to the Waterford Intermediate title in 1971 and was a selector on the Nire team which won the club's first county senior football championship title in 1993. He also served as a Waterford football selector.

Liam Devaney was a star on Tipp's best ever team while Jim Wall has given many decades of sterling service to football in Waterford. Their many achievements are worthy of recognition and its fitting to see them honoured with this year's Hall of Fame awards"
