All Ireland Final

This week is a particularly special week to be penning the club notes. The excitement and buzz is clearly evident throughout the county with flags, signs and banners dotted all over - a clear indication of the support for our senior hurlers going into Sunday's All Ireland hurling final against Galway. We haven't been in a final since 2008 - one which we would rather forget. The last time Waterford were victorious was in 1959 when they defeated Kilkenny in a replay. CLG Tulach an Iarainn wishes the very best of luck to our own Thomas Ryan, to the team and management in Sunday's final. Here's hoping the McCarthy cup will be making its way over the bridge in Waterford next Monday, while the Horse Fair is in full swing in Tallow. An Déise abú!!
