Roscrea GAA is a Tipperary GAA club which is located in County Tipperary, Ireland. Both hurling and Gaelic football are played in the "North-Tipperary" divisional competitions. The club is centred on the town of Roscrea. The club's colours are red and white and they play at Páirc Naomh Cronáin (English- St. Cronan's Park). This was the venue for the 1949 All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship Final.

History[edit]

Currently the team is led by selectors, one of which being Paul Delaney, well known for his assistance in the All-Ireland win for the Tipperary Senior Hurling Team in 1991. Roscrea were feared in the 1960s and 1970s for their hurling prowess but are now referred to as the sleeping giants of North Tipperary.

Hurling[edit]

Roscrea has been considered a strong club in North Tipperary for a long time. However, there has recently been some controversy for various reasons such as a lack of players at matches and general poor performances.
