Credit Union Future
The future of Mullinahone Credit Union which opened in May 1978 is now secure. Mullinahone has always been to this day a credit union run by volunteers. In recent years, the volume of administration has escalated hugely due to Government regulation. This made the task of volunteer credit unions virtually impossible.
However, due to the link up with Clonmel Credit Union, approved by the members at the last AGM, credit union will continue with an improved service as will be outlined to members shortly in a circular. While computer records will in future be linked to Clonmel, this will enable the bulk of the administration to be handled from there where staff will rely on the records much more so than were they in Mullinahone.
After a busy week both on and off the field, our senior hurlers still continue to prosper. Our offer to replay the Swan game on last Tuesday night was not accepted by them and the South Board awarded the game to us. This means that we will play Killenaule in the South Tipp winners semi-final with the winners going through to the South final and the losers playing off with the winners of the losers tie (Ballingarry or Swan) in a second semi-final.
All this supposes that there won’t be appeals. On Saturday night we came from nine points down to defeat Ballygunner by a point 2-22 to 2-21 in Carrick in the St. Molleran’s tournament. On the administration front, we welcome the addition of Paul Curran to the Tipperary senior hurling backroom team and we congratulate Paul.
Presentations to Schools
The three primary schools in our parish were recently presented with gaelic gear by representatives of the Mullinahone club. The presentations were by way of a thank you to the teachers in Poulacapple N.S, Kilvemnon N.S. and Mullinahone N.S. who have supported our local GAA in recent years and in the past. Each school was also presented with a copy of the C.J.Kickham’s history “The Green above the Red” and also copies of some GAA ballads written by local poet, Joe Tobin.
On the playing field well done to Mullinahone N.S. who have qualified for a County U-11 final in Semple Stadium in mid June. Best wishes also to their U-13 team in their upcoming semi-final. Hard luck to our juvenile U-12 footballers who lost their Shield final on Sunday night. Details of Summer Camps will be available next week.
