Pride of Place Goes to Nicola
In a weekend which was overshadowed by the Munster senior hurling Final, pride of place in Mullinahone must go to local young lady, Nicola O’Dwyer of Ballyvadlea. In Tuam, Co. Galway on Saturday Nicola was co-captain of the Tipperary Ladies U14 football team which defeated Donegal in the All-Ireland final replay. No alone was Nicola a captain of the team, but she also won the “Player of the Game” award for her display in goal in the second half when Donegal started to rally.
In the end, Tipp won by six points. A week previously, Tipp scored two goals in added time to salvage a draw in the final. What a difference a week makes. For the historians, back in 1996 (19 years ago) Nicola’s mother, Colette Brett also won an All-Ireland Ladies club football medal with Shelmaliers of Wexford. Well done Nicola We’ll say a chip off the old block.
Thank You Joe

Congratulations to Poulacapple NS who were to the fore at Clonmel Show recently winning quite a number of prizes. In fact, the school was presented with the overall prize for their various entries. Principal Mary Meagher was the recipient of €500 on behalf of the school. Individual winners were Tia O’Sullivan, 1st in Art, Roisin Foley, 2nd in Photography and Padhraic Foley, 2nd in Poetry. Padhraic was also in action representing Poulacapple NS and Tipperary Schools in the Primary Go games played during the Munster Final in Semple Stadium on Sunday. Well done Poulacapple NS.
The computer switch over and change of hours in Mullinahone Credit Union went rather smoothly on Thursday last and also on Saturday morning. Our Credit Union is now part of the much bigger Clonmel- Fethard- Mullinahone Credit Union with more and better services for members. Apologies to those people who turned up outside of hours on Thursday and Friday last. The new days and hours are Thursdays 3.30pm to 7pm and Saturday morning 10am to 1pm.

Not the best of weeks for our teams. Our Intermediate footballers went down to Grangemockler in Ballingarry on Friday night though they are still likely to qualify for the South Tipp semi-final. Our hurlers had a useful outing in the Thurles hurling festival getting in much needed practice for the upcoming South Tipp semi-final v Killenaule. Well done to Sharon Scott and Just Men Barbers on the support signs around the village wishing Tipp luck in the Munster Final. The signs seemed to have worked.
