Black Spots

3 major black spots in the parish to report on this week. Two of them involve litter and the third road markings or rather the lack of them. The rubbish spots are (a) dog dirt on the village streets and (b) a major dumping site building up on the backroad in Ballydonnell and (c) the absence of road markings on the road into the village from the creamery makes the road dangerous especially during foggy or wet weather.

Community Alert

The local Community Alert service seems to have reactivated again. Of course, signs of suspicious activity to go out on text must be first reported. No guards can be inspired. To report suspicious activity, ring 0504-25100.

Mullinahone Juvenile GAA

Our first games of the year are due to begin with our U12 footballers on next Saturday February 21st at 11am in Mullinahone v Ballingarry.  U10 and U16 also back in training with U6 and U8 due to join them out on the field in the coming weeks.  We would encourage as many parents and supporters as possible to attend all games throughout the year and offer encouragement to our future stars.  Registration for U6’s to U16’s must be paid a.s.a.p. to membership officer, Josephine Britton.  All players must be members before playing any games.

Sponsored walk or run cards will be out to all age groups in the next couple of weeks for our walk/run on March 29th. Training continues each Sunday with a walk/run group catering for men/women/children of all levels. At the February monthly meeting, the following club positions were filled.  Vice-Chair, Isobel Croke and Eoin Kelly, Assistant Treasurer, Bill Tobin.

Under 21 Footballers Go Down.

For the second weekend in a row, our U21 footballers suffered a heavy defeat in the championship. On Sunday last in Fethard, they went down rather heavily to Ardfinnan. While the gap was very large at half time, the display in the second half showed a lot more determination than previously seen. A number of the younger players in particular such as Colin Shelly, Michael Cody and Enda Keane showed up well to help older stagers. Jack Shelly, John O’Grady, Richie Walsh, Paul Luttrell and Sean Walzer also showed promise at times. The standard of football displayed over the last 2 weeks must cause concern regarding the attitude to football coaching of this group of players since they were U12’s.

Water Good and Bad News


Some good news to begin with about the water in the local area. It seems that the long-term leaks on the Carrick Road outside the Community Centre and the leak in the lane at the back of Crottys have been repaired. Of course, one cannot expect leaks to be repaired by Irish Water or Tipperary Co. Council if these authorities are not informed about the leaks. The onus to do this falls on locals or those who pass such leaks on a regular basis.


The bad news regarding the water supply in the local area concerns the amount of lime in the supply. In the last year, the amount of lime in our water has increased enormously. While this does not appear to be injurious to health, the deposits and scale left on electric or other kettles, washing machines, showers etc. It is both costly to remove these deposits from the machines and even more costly to replace the machines themselves.  With our new water supply now well bedded in, as they say, it is time for the supply itself to be attended to.

A Rash of Robberies

Since the run in to Christmas and its aftermath, there seems to have been a rash of robberies in the village and around the area.  So far, happily there has been no violence attached to these robberies, but eventually, this could happen and on the law of averages will happen until the community takes precautions.  By far the most serious events have been a handbag snatch at about 8pm in the village street and a robbery from 2 elderly people in the Carrick Road area.

It is time for the community to stand up and take a share in its own policing.  People should keep their eyes and ears open and be prepared to report suspicious activity in their locality and not just after an event occurs.

One is tempted to ask the question Has our local text alert service gone on a go slow since before Christmas?  We welcome Garda Lisa Prendergast to our midst and would like to make her welcome and to help her do her job.  Since her arrival, Garda Lisa has been very active in our area.  Long may it continue.  It is time for our community to see what we can do to police our community and not ask what our police can do for us with apologies to John F. Kennedy 50 years on.
