Turlough Owen “Tull” Considine (5 October 1898 – 7 July 1980) was an Irish hurler and Gaelic footballer who played for the Clare senior teams. A talented dual player, Considine first played for the senior hurling team during the 1918 championship and was a regular on the inter-county scene until his retirement after the 1934 championship. During that time he won one Munster hurling medal. Considine was an All-Ireland runner-up on two occasions.
He also played football with Clare and appeared in the 1917 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final where Clare lost out to Wexford. At club level Considine played with the Ennis Dalcassians club and enjoyed much success. In a career that spanned three decades he won six county hurling championship medals and two county football championship medals. Considine’s brothers, Brendan and Willie, were All-Ireland medalists with Clare.
