Niall Handy mentioned in his recent report that he expects a number of retirements from the senior intercounty team . Could anyone shed some light on who these players could be ?

If you're at Convention watch how many of our top brass will sit there with a big broad smile at the financial surplus thinking they are doing a great job. When Clare won the All Ireland in 2013 they were just under a million in debt because of the investment it took to win. Tipp spent close to €1m on their senior hurling team alone in 2019 and guess what... they won. People in those, and most other counties couldn't give a shit about surpluses. Trophies are the only currency.

Tipp in 2019 spent €1.77m and that figure just covers what the county board spent, not money put into the county teams and support staff wages/expertise by the likes of our Sponsor and supporters as well

And It was worth every nickel

be it the All Ireland win in 19 or we winning a Munster football title on the Centenary of Bloody Sunday.

Players deserve the very best whether they are representing Tipp at u14 or Senior

There will be none as billy is too friendly with the older bunch but his hands are tied with lads not committing but Niall handy saying he can’t believe billy is still not called a Laois man am I right he said that.?
