Captain Derek Bourke admitted afterwards that it was impossible to avoid the prospect of the double in the build-up to the game. It was very hard not to think of it.

Deaths in Tipperary - Tuesday, September 10, 2019

In recent years, contemporary star players include Ciaran McDonald and Barry Grogan who both played for the Tipperary senior football team. The club lost its senior football status in recent years[when?] and through a reduction in playing members joined forces with current intermediate team Lattin-Cullen GAA for the senior football championship. The club is centred on the village Of Lisvernane and surrounding Glen of Aherlow, some eight miles east of Tipperary town. It has also become increasingly active as a hurling club, and plays Ladies' Gaelic football. This combination team known as Aherlow Gaels won the 2016 championship be defeating old foes and neighbours Galtee Rovers. Aherlow GAA is a Gaelic Athletic Association club located in County Tipperary in Ireland, established within a year of the GAA's foundation.[1] The club plays Gaelic football at senior (in a combination with a neighbouring club), under-21, junior, minor and underage levels in the West Tipperary Division and all-county competitions of Tipperary GAA.

Aherlow did manage four points in the final 10 minutes as they played with great spirit but the fact that star man Barry Grogan was kept scoreless by man of the match John Meagher ensured Loughmores place in Tipperary GAA history. Leading 1-4 to 0-5 at the break, Loughmore took control early in the second half with an Aidan McGrath point being followed by John McGraths goal as Aherlow keeper Shane Leonard and defender Sean Mullins failed to deal with the dipping 45-metre delivery which went all the way to the net. Forced to take extra risks to get back into the game, Aherlow left themselves exposed at the back, with Loughmores penetrating runs yielding frees which McGrath converted. The midfielder was also involved in the move for Evan Sweeneys goal in the 50th minute.

Loughmore-Castleiney made history at Semple Stadium yesterday when recording a comfortable 10-point win over Aherlow Gaels to become the first club in Tipperary to complete a county senior double. Loughmore-Castleiney had earlier won the hurling crown by defeating ire g, Nenagh, and their ability to create goal chances and take them, was the difference between the sides as the champions claimed the trophy for the 13th time and first since 2004.
