Eddie Connolly RIP

The death has taken place of former Loughmore-Castleiney and Tipperary player Eddie Connolly after a long battle with cancer. Eddie passed away peacefully last night at home with his family.

At the request of the Connolly family, tonight's Eddie Connolly Trust Fund "Night at the Dogs" at Thurles Greyhound Stadium will still go ahead in a celebration of Eddie's life.

On behalf of the Tipperary County Board, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the Connolly family at this sad time.

It is with great regret and sadness that we learned of the death of Eddie Connolly who sadly passed away last night peacefully at home with his family.

Eddie was born on October 22nd, 1985 and played for the Loughmore Castleiney GAA club. Eddie won County and Munster Club Championship honours with Loughmore Castleiney in 2007.

Eddie played for the Tipperary Under 21 Footballers in 2006 and was part of the Tipperary Senior Football panel in 2006 and 2007. In continuing his upward ascent Eddie finally arrived on the Tipperary Senior Hurling panel in 2011, making his National Hurling League debut against Offaly at corner-back in March 2011. Further success followed when Eddie captained Tipperary to Munster and All-Ireland Intermediate Hurling titles in 2012.

In late 2013, Eddie was diagnosed with brain cancer. Since then he had been bravely and courageously battling to overcome his illness and had a terrific outlook on life and was undergoing a new form of cancer treatment in Spain.

The Eddie Connolly Trust Fund was established to help fund this special cancer treatment for Eddie by organising a special "Night at the Dogs" for tonight, Friday September 18th at Thurles Greyhound Stadium.

At the request of his family, tonight's Eddie Connolly Trust Fund "Night at the Dogs" at Thurles Greyhound Stadium will still go ahead in a celebration of Eddie's life as the GAA community of his native Loughmore Castleiney, Tipperary and further afield come together to honour and remember Eddie.

In paying tribute to Eddie Connolly, Tipperary County Board Chairman Michael Bourke said, "When the light of life is extinguished in someone young it always strikes to the heart with immense pain and grief. With the passing of Eddie Connolly that pain and grief is more intensified because Eddie was determined to overcome this battle and get back to what he did and loved best, playing for his club and county.

Eddie took to this his greatest test with the same determination and belief that he carried to the fields of play with Loughmore Castleiney and Tipperary, a true warrior in every sense of the word.

On behalf of Tipperary County Board we extend our heartfelt condolences to his mother and father, Maureen and Jim, sisters and brothers, Niamh, Fiona, James and Gerard at this very difficult time."

Dual roles not the cause of Tipp defeat, says Charlie McGeever

Charlie McGeever was adamant that the involvement of nine members of his football panel on the county's minor hurling squad had no impact on yesterday's 20-point final mauling.
The argument that tired bodies and tired minds had contributed to Tipperary's non-performance was one he simply would not entertain.
It is definitely something that is not a problem," he said.
The reality is that these players are talented, whether they are playing two sports or one. The dual factor is not the issue. The issue for me today was that we got to a point where we just didn't start in the match. It will be thrown out that they were tired, that they were this, that or the other.
The bottom line was we didn't show up on the day.
From beginning to end, nothing seemed to go right. We just couldn't pick ourselves up. If we had got to half-time still in touch, we might have had an opportunity, but even the changes at half-time didn't seem to kick us on either.
It was damage limitation towards the end. Unfortunately, that is what happens at this age-group. Coming up today we felt everything was right, we worked hard, we had progressed well, we had trained well and it just didn't happen."
Central to their downfall, according to McGeever, was Kerry's midfield superiority.
If you tried to play it again, you wouldn't play it as it was. Every kick went where they wanted it to go and their midfield pairing outplayed us from the beginning. Their foundation was the middle of the field and they worked from there. We tried every combination going and it didn't work out.
It didn't matter what we tried, they were winning them, all of the kick-outs.
It is the one area of the game where we had been excellent all year. But it just didn't work today.
He added: "We have all been in a place where we have been well beaten and we kick on from there. That is the beauty of sport, you go out the next day in a new competition as part of a new set-up.
"But look, we have played a year where we have beaten the Leinster and Connacht champions. That says it wasn't a fluke where we started. Today was a bad day, but there have been good days and we have to bottle those."

What do you think. I see it as JOC done his homework on Tipp even after the Munster Final win

Jimmy Finn presented with GPA Lifetime Achievement Award

Hundreds of former GAA stars gathered in Croke Park on the eve of the All-Ireland football final and paid tribute to two legends in Kerry's Mick O'Dwyer and Tipperary's Jimmy Finn.
O'Dwyer and Finn were presented with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Awards by GPA Chairman Dónal Óg Cusack and President Dermot Earley acknowledging both men's contribution to football and hurling.
Tributes were also paid to the All-Ireland winning sides from the past five decades were also acknowledged at the GPA event.
Borrisoleigh native Finn, 84, won three All-Irelands with Tipp in the 1950s and lifted the Liam MacCarthy Cup as captain in 1951 at just 20 years of age. He also won six National League medals, three Munster titles and two Railway Cups before an eye injury brought his career to an end.
O'Dwyer's retirement from inter-county management last year brought six decades of involvement in the game to a close. His extraordinary legacy as manager, however, was preceded by his four All-Ireland medals, 11 Munster titles and seven National League successes on the field of play.
The Former Players Event, which is open to all former county hurlers and footballers, is now in its third year and was initiated by the GPA to help develop a county player alumni.
The GPA currently assists former players through its development programme particularly in the areas of career development, return to education bursaries, career development, counselling services, medical assistance and hardship support.

Second chance for all in new Munster minor stucture

Next year's Munster minor hurling championship will be played under an amended system to remove the possibility of teams being eliminated after playing, and losing, just one game.
Clare received a bye to the semi-finals in this year's campaign, but lost to Tipperary and were out, while Limerick made it to the All-Ireland series despite losing twice - to Cork in the provincial quarter-final and then to Tipp in the Munster decider.
Under the new system, each team will have the benefit of a second chance, while repeat meetings - as with Cork and Limerick this year - will be avoided too. With Kerry not taking part, there are five teams in the Munster MHC. For 2016, four teams will be drawn to play in the quarter-finals, with the two winners reaching the semi-finals.
One of the two quarter-final losers will then play the county which was not in the quarter-finals. The winner of that will advance to the last four and the loser will play the other team beaten in the quarter-finals. "Overall, it's a far more equitable system," said Cork's Munster Council delegate Marc Sheehan.
"Clare were unlucky this year and it's very tough for a team getting the bye into the semi-final to have to face a team which has already played a game.
The new system eliminates that scenario and also the draw will be set up in such a way that repeat pairings will be disallowed."
While there is the possibility under the new system of a team losing three games and still making the All-Ireland championship, it is likely that the competition at national level will have a qualifier system in any case, featuring Galway, Antrim and beaten Munster and Leinster sides.
The proposal for such a change will be voted on by Central Council next month.
The Munster MFC system will remain unchanged for next year. Draws for Munster intermediate, junior, U21 and minor competitions will take place at the next provincial council meeting on October 22nd.

The 10 greatest women GAA players of all time

Cora Staunton, Mayo, football. In some sports when a player is so good and has made such a lasting impact on the game their jersey is retired. If it were possible to do that in Gaelic Games that honour would surely be bestowed on Cora Staunton. Since she made her debut for Mayo in 1995 she has never stopped performing winning four All-Ireland titles, nine All-Star awards and three National Leagues. There is no player who can be compared to her. She is strong, accurate from both feet and still despite a twenty year career she is hungry for success. In a recent club game she scored 9-12 and in the year's Connacht final she racked up a tally of 1-15. Her consistency and commitment to winning t sets her apart from the pack. In the 1999 All-Ireland final she started the game with a broken collar bone, stayed on the pitch for ninety seconds then came off. She will do whatever it takes to succeed; she's a winner to the core.

Juliet Murphy, Cork, football. When it came to controlling a game Cork's Juliet Murphy was the master. And luckily for her team she was ever present throughout her 17 year career, never sent off and rarely absent through injury. She captained Cork to consecutive All-Ireland titles in 2005, 2006 and 2007. So vital was she to the Cork football revolution that in 2013 she came out of retirement to help see her team over the line once more. Her eight All-Ireland titles and six All-Star awards are testament to the role she played for Cork, a natural leader and a great footballer as well.

Briege Corkery, Cork, camogie. When thinking about greats of the game it's impossible not to be blown away by Briege Corkery and her athleticism and skill. Her pace on the ball and the force she accelerates with makes her almost unmarkable. As well as having nine All-Ireland football titles, she has a five All-Ireland camogie medals and 13 All-Star awards spread between the two codes. While the wing back's ability is unbelievably impressive it's her character that is almost her greatest strength. She is inspirational, courageous and fearless and when Cork have her in their team sheet they always have the edge.

Marina Barry, Kerry, football, The commitment shown by camogie players and Ladies footballers is a hot topic right now but few know what the players of the past sacrificed to compete at the top level. Kerry's Marina Barry won ten All-Ireland titles with Kerry during the 1980s and 90 captaining the Kingdom to the title while still in school. For large part of her career she travelled from Dublin, where she was based, back home to represent her county. No challenge was too great for the sharp shooter who had strength, skill and grace all rolled into one. Although she is close to fifty Barry still lines out for her club Austin Stacks.

Brenda McAnespie, Monaghan, football.

Angela Downey, Kilkenny, camogie.

Deirdre Hughes, Tipperary, camogie. In pressurised situations Deidre Hughes was a player who could always be relied on to stand up and be counted, she was the ultimate team player, the play maker. In 1999 when Tipperary made their break through at senior level Hughes was superb. After that heroic win they went on to make their mark on camogie and write themselves into the history books and she was a key cog in Tipperary's wheel during this revolutionary time. They went on to win four All-Irelands in the next five years and Hughes was selected on the camogie team of the century.

Fiona, O'Driscoll, Cork, camogie, football.

Therese Maher, Galway, camogie.

Kate Kelly, Wexford, camogie.

Tipp lose Colin O'Riordan as dual star signs AFL contract

STAR Colin O'Riordan has signed an international rookie contract with the Sydney Swans after impressing at the Australian Football League Draft Combine.
The 19-year-old, an All-Ireland minor winner in both hurling and football, caught the eye of scouts at Melbourne's Etihad Stadium to secure a two-year contract.
"It's unreal, it's a dream come true," he said.
"I fell in love with Sydney instantly and from the moment I arrived at the club I felt at home as everyone was so welcoming.
"It hasn't sunk it yet but when I touch down in Ireland and see my family I'm sure it will."
O'Riordan, as well as Kilkenny's Darragh Joyce, were among 80 trialists put through their paces over four intensive days. Their speed, agility, jumping, endurance, handling, kicking and goal-kicking were put to the test by recruiters.
The JK Brackens man was named the young footballer of the year in 2014 and helped Tipp to All-Ireland success as a 15-year-old in 2011.
His natural ability is something that caught the eye with Sydney's recruiting manager, Kinnear Beatson, revealing O'Riordan made an instant impression.
"Colin came to the club early this week for a trial and had a training session with members of our academy where he instantly impressed us," Beatson said.
Colin O'Riordan lifts the trophy O'Riordan lifts the Munster U21 football championship in April.

"What struck us the most was how well he kicked the footy - he's clearly been doing a lot of work on that - and he genuinely looks like an AFL footballer.
"He's got great skills, takes the ball at the highest point when marking overhead, his work ethic and his competitiveness really shone out in the session he had with us.
"We're really excited Colin has decided to join the Swans and we know he's got the attitude and drive to give himself the best possible chance to forge a long and successful career."
Joyce has yet to put pen to paper but is confident of securing a deal which would see him head to Australia.
"I'm out here to do business and get a contract," Joyce said. "I've had interviews with the Swans, St Kilda, Essendon, Brisbane and the Bulldogs, so there has been a bit of interest.
"I've put college on hold to come out here and chase a dream."
"It's a fantastic opportunity."
