Upperchurch-Drombane GAA Club is one of six Tipperary clubs who are competing at Senior level in both hurling and football. We achieved promotion to Senior Hurling after winning the County Intermediate Championship in 1998 and we were promoted to Senior Football when we won the County Intermediate Football Championship in 2015.
With some significant successes by our underage teams in recent years we have a large pool of players to bring more success to our club in the years ahead. To help succeed we need to expand our facilities, so the hard-working committee has committed to purchase extra land to facilitate a second pitch. This will be a huge benefit to the members of Upperchurch-Drombane GAA Club, Slieve Feilm Rapparees and the wider community who will all use the new expanded facilities.
Upperchurch-Drombane GAA Club is a community-based volunteer organization promoting Gaelic games, culture, and lifelong participation. We are committed to active lifelong participation for all and to providing the best facilities. We strive to include all members of our community encouraging them to achieve their full potential in their chosen role within the club.
Everything we do helps to enrich the communities we serve. We foster a clear sense of identity and place. We hold the annual Moher Hill 7km walk / run over the Christmas Holidays with all proceeds going to a nominated charity each year. Over the last 10 years we have raised in excess of €30,000 for various causes. The beneficiaries in the last three years were IMNDA, CAMEO Care & Scoil Aonghusa Cashel.
We are a volunteer led organisation. All our members play and engage in our games as amateurs.
Everyone involved in the club puts in endless hours coaching, fundraising and working to make our club the best it can be.
We welcome everybody to be part of our Association.
As girls could only play up to Under 12 with the boys, members of our club came together with an adjacent club in 2016 to form the Slieve Feilm Rapparees.
This has provided a pathway for the girls to continue to play Gaelic Football and Camogie with their friends up to adult level.
We respect each other on and off the field. We operate with integrity at all levels. We listen and respect the views of all.
We provide the best playing experience for all our players. We structure our games to allow players of all abilities to reach their potential and promote both hurling and football from Juvenile to Adult.
Effective teamwork on and off the field is the cornerstone of our organization. Ni neart go cur le cheile (There is no strength without working together).
