Camogie: : Congratulations to Karen Kennedy (Joint Captain) on winning the Munster Senior Camogie Final last Saturday in FBD Semple Stadium and also scooping the Player of the Match award. Unfortunately the victory was later overshadowed by some sad news in the passing of Karen, Emer & Catriona Kennedy (all three girls playing on our senior team) grandmother Nance Kennedy. Nance had been watching the game and saw Karen lift the cup shortly before she passed away & all of us at Thurles Sarsfields Camogie would like to pass our deepest sympathies to the Kennedy families at this time.
Best wishes to Aoife Dwyer playing in the Munster Junior Camogie Final vs Limerick on Sunday 21st May at 12pm in Holycross.

Upcoming events: With the upcoming Munster Championship games in Semple Stadium, we are looking for volunteers to help with the bar (serving, collecting glasses, setting up, cleaning), programmes, selling Lotto tickets and running the car park. The bar, programmes and car park are a great source of income for the Club and brings in much needed funds for the day to day running of the club (electricity, insurance, field maintenance, cleaning, refuse, schools coaching etc.) We are trying to keep the costs down as much as possible to ensure we are in a position to further develop our facilities for everyone and to do this we need volunteers. If you could give 1-2 hours of your time on any of these dates it would be much appreciated. This is a great chance to help boost our funds and work together as the Senior Club, Camogie Club and Ladies Football Club, male and female, players and non-players to contribute to Our Club. The following are the dates:
21/05/2023 (Sunday) Tipperary V Limerick
28/05/2023 (Sunday) Tipperary V Waterford
If you wish to volunteer, please text:
