Looking back 15 years:  On Monday Jan 24th 2000 a motion submitted by Ballinahinch GAA club to alter the running of the North Tipperary Junior A hurling championship was passed unanimously by delegates of the North Tipperary Board. The motion was to change the structure from a 2 group system to a 1 group system. 2 years later in 2002 we went on to win North & County titles in this championship.
