TIPPERARY COURSING CLUB

What a super weekend we had at Galbally coursing grounds last weekend.  Fair play to Tipperary club who took no chances with the weather.........covering the grounds early the week before and again on Saturday night.
Their hard work paid off and we were treated to good coursing of strong hares..........and glorious sunshine as well!

Lots of good quality stakes on offer and one last chance for the dogs not engaged in the Irish cup to show their worth.

You can get a video of this meeting from DJ O`Connell...........ring 06257169
Slipper Denis Crowley had a good meeting
