Best wishes to Shane McGrath who has announced his retirement from the Tipperary Senior Hurling panel. Shane has represented Ballinahinch with distinction during his career with Tipperary. He won a Munster Under 21 Hurling medal with Tipperary in 2004. He made his National Hurling League debut for the Tipperary Senior Hurling team at wing-forward against Limerick in February 2006 and made his championship debut at midfield against Limerick in the first round of the 2006 Munster championship. Shane won a National Hurling League medal at midfield in 2008. and has won 5 Munster Senior Hurling medals. He lined out at midfield in 2010 as they captured All-Ireland honours. Shane was selected at midfield in the 2008 and 2014 All-Star teams and one of the great honours he received was to captain the Tipperary Senior Hurling team in 2013. Shane also played with Munster hurlers winning Inter Provincial Championships medals in 2007 and 2013. We would like to congratulate him on what he has achieved and thank him for representing Ballinahinch so well and we hope more success at club level will come in the years to come with the club.
