With five Tipperary players still involved in the selection process ahead of this years annual Quadrangular Tournament, all eyes will soon be turning towards Limerick to see the cream of the crop of Irish Junior football. The tournament involves teams from the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Mann, and has witnessed some fine football in recent years.
Ireland is likely once again to be lead by former Irish Junior footballer of the year and TSDL stalwart James “Chalkie” Walsh, and will hopefully also feature team mates Chris Higgins and Paul Breen. TSDL supporters will also be looking forward to Clonmel Town’s Evan Comerford making his debut at international level, and I am sure everyone in the county also wishes the best of luck to Carrick United’s Adrian Walsh.
The team had a warm up last weekend against League of Ireland outfit UCD, and beat their illustrious opponents, despite playing a completely different eleven in each half. Such strength in depth no doubt bodes well for the Juniors and they will be hoping for a very successful series of games.
Their first outing takes place in Limerick on October 4th at 1:30 pm, against the Isle of Mann, at the Janesboro ground, with the second game against Northern Ireland a day later in Fairview Rangers
