Tony Breen, Clonmel

The club would like to send its condolences to the family of the late Tony Breen who lost his life in a motorcycle accident on April 18 2010, whilst taking part in a charity run that he had organized. For several years Tony was manager of our Clonmel base - Magners - on the Waterford Road and was always a gracious host to us when we visited.


Tipperary Arsenal Supporters Club received with great sorrow the sad news of the passing of one of our former committee members, Seanie Murphy, who lost his life tragically in Lattin on Sunday evening, 16th January 2010.

Seanie, 28, was a long-standing member of our Club who had been to Highbury and the Emirates on eight occasions in the last five years and had played a starring role in the end-of season tournament on the Emirates pitch in May 2008. His next trip, money collected and lads organized, was to happen in a fortnight’s time when he was due to visit again with his partner Paula and seven of his great pals for the Liverpool game.

At the end of November last, Seanie had planned a trip to the clash with Chelsea after surprising all four members of his family with match-tickets. He was a committed family man, came from a respectable family and thanks to his uncle, who bought him his first replica shirt at age 3, was steeped in the Gooner tradition. He had two beloved children dressed like himself, forever in the latest Arsenal kit – a daughter, Mackaela, and a son, Thierry, named after an obvious hero.

As club members we are all indebted to Seanie in his role as a catalyst encouraging a new generation of Gooner fanatics and being the link between them and the founding generation of our Club ten years ago. He was a very effective driving force between these loyal friends and our Club – a role which he relished and which we appreciated.

Seanie’s clan, in his abscence, went to the Liverpool game and shouted from behind the goal with even greater gusto. They will forever remain a vital part of Tipperary Arsenal Supporters Club even though it will always be different for them without their natural leader.

Sixty Arsenal shirts welcomed Seanie back to his home for the last time. What a fitting tribute that many of these were worn by Man United and Liverpool supporters, many of whom would have slagged off or been slagged off by Seanie, depending on the results of the day, but all of whom numbered him as a loyal and trusted friend.

To Paula, Mackaela and Thierry, to parents Peggy and Sean, to granny Mary, to sisters Martina, Helen and Margaret and finally to his brother Patrick, another loyal member of our Club, we tender our deepest sympathy.

We know as we continue to follow the fortunes of the Gunners, we will have one with us in spirit who views from a higher seat…and shouts louder…than any of us.


Another fantastic day with every single junior member winning quality Arsenal merchandise in the Draw.

Lots and lots of happy faces - and Santa hasn't even come yet!

Ronan McGrath captured the second win of the year when winning the members club free trip Draw.

Well done to all!

Everyone had a great time over the weekend. Tipp lads stayed in Manor House and arrived fresh for battle. Didn't go too badly in the tournament - drew first game with Tralee 0-0 after several good chances to put something on the score-sheet. Second match v Sweden also ended in a draw 1-1, Declan O'Brien scoring whilst our defence were responsible for a late equalizer! We beat South Wales by 2-1, Declan again on the score-sheet, this time without the hand-assistance(!). A spectacular scramble over the line by Tom Slattery put us ahead whilst he did the splits. The Swedes went through, ending our chance to advance to the quarter-finals. We took the opportunity to use the away dressing-rooms to get back into the day clothes and headed upstairs to Club level for light refreshments and to watch the final where Norway were beaten by Hungary 2-1. have a feature on the event at Fanzone/Supporters Clubs. Team: Jason Gallagher, Colin Price, Sean Murphy (R.I.P.), Tom Slattery, Phil Blake, Declan O'Brien and Aidan O'Brien.

Another great Tipp Arsenal Supporters Club day out at Cornys of Tipperary on May 8 2005 saw some very valuable prizes finding new homes. Congratulations to Declan Stapleton on winning the €100 club cheque, to Chris O’Flaherty went the Arsenal fleece, the Arsenal away jersey to Paddy Kennedy, the Untouchables DVD to Dave Fennessy and the framed Arsenal picture to Eddie O’Meara. Also winners on the day were Tom Slattery and Paul Roche with Arsenal mouse mats whilst Jason Gallagher went home with the Unbeatables mug. A few well-chosen words from club chairman Benny Ellard extended our sympathies to the family of our great friend Frank Malone and with all present thanked for their support so the curtain came down on yet another very successful year for Tipperary Town and District Arsenal Supporters Club.


Tipperary Town and District Arsenal Supporters Club send sincere sympathy to the family of the late Frank Malone from Tipperary Town and originally from Tallonstown, Co Louth whose untimely death occurred on Wednesday April 27 2005. Frank was a member of our club since it’s inception six years ago and delighted in all things to do with Arsenal FC. The Gunners were a very big part of his life. He attended all our social meetings and very many of our trips to Highbury. Indeed earlier this year I suggested that he accompany me to London for the game against Bayern Munich. Thinking he would be delighted with the opportunity, I was shocked by his reply “Ah no”. Believing that he may not be feeling the best I thought it wiser not to pursue the issue. Moments later Frank called me back “I’d like you to get a ticket for me for Munich!” That was Frank - expect the unexpected! So with typical determination he was in attendance on a cold snowy night in Munich earlier this year for that Champions League clash. Unfortunately the team were not as determined! On the occasion of our Family Day in Clonmel just before Christmas he came away the winner of a framed “Arsenal legends” clock - something I am sure that took pride of place in his home as he watched his heroes and gave out about the tactics, the line-up or whatever else was going wrong in the game. Frank, like all the rest of us amateur managers in the Club would know far better than Arsene Wenger any day of the week! He will be greatly missed by all in Tipperary Arsenal Supporters Club, may he rest in peace.

May 2004 - A dream comes true for Tipperary Arsenal Supporters

The Tipperary Supporters ready to take the field!

Ger and Michael meet Kenny Samson

The lads check out the surface at Highbury

Nine Tipperary Arsenal Supporters were lucky enough to be able to take part in a 7-a-side tournament, played on the hallowed turf at Highbury. The tournament took place before the Martin Keown testimonial. It was a magnificent opportunity to play on one of the best surfaces in the world and especially as the stadium has only two more seasons before it is replaced. The lads did the club proud winning three and drawing one out of the four games played, without conceding a goal. Unfortunately it was not enough to win as they were beaten by Denmark on goal difference. This was the club’s fist time playing in the tournament and hopefully not the last.
