Lorrha’s Brian Hogan faces busy times, lining out with the UCD hurlers in the Electric Ireland Fitzgibbon Cup and also looking ahead to Tipperary’s Allianz Hurling League campaign, which begins with a home tie against Clare at Semple Stadium this Saturday evening – a repeat of the recent Co-Op Superstores Munster Senior Hurling League final, which Clare won.

Hogan captained Maynooth University to second tier Ryan Cup honours last year, with his Dad Ken as captain, but has since moved to the Belfield Campus. The 22–year old is following in Ken’s footsteps as the latest Hogan to feature in the Tipperary Senior hurling squad, and he says it’s a great honour.

It was great to have him on board last year and he was a great influence on the dressing room for our win,” Brian told the Guardian.

Obviously I would have learned a lot of the tricks of the trade for goalkeeping from him, and he would have given me great advice over the years.

In the last few years he’s let me do my own thing, but it’s great to have that advice on board.

I would have seen him play at county level, and I would have seen him play in plenty of videos with Tipp, and obviously with Lorrha as well.

You would have wanted to be a goalkeeper seeing that, so it was great having that on board, and I’m very grateful for it.”
