Games 20mins per half
We had a good response to our request for accommodation for the lads. If you are in a position to keep a couple of players/mentors for Fri and Sat night please contact Liam Mulcahy or any committee member. Our visitors arrive on Friday 8th July and will have a coaching session with James Murray that evening. They will be hurling or travelling all day Saturday and leaving directly after mass on Sunday morning.

Members of the Naomh Columicille club have often stressed to us the importance of their visits to Tallow in sustaining their club. They benefit greatly from the coaching and competing in a hurling environment. Our close relationship with the East Tyrone club goes back over twenty years. Long may it continue.

Fundraiser Auction:
Plans are well advanced for our fundraiser auction on Sat 9 July in Lizzy Langtons. List of auction items is almost complete but still room for more if any business wishes to donate a voucher for their particular product or service. Contact Ter, Denis or any committee member.

Last Man Standing
Tallow Last Man Standing goes into the last week of the season for the first time ever. 4 competitors left all won this weekend. Prize will be shared if there is no outright winner.

Junior Football
Our junior footballers were defeated by Affane on Saturday last. They will play their next game against Fourmilewater this Friday, May 19th in Cappoquin at 7.30pm. Your support, as always, is much appreciated.
