From Mullinahone to Cork, Bath and Salzburg - w/e Oct 27

SCOIL Mhuire, Kilvemnon, is involved in a very exciting project entitle d"The Red Thread".
It all began last November when school principal Ms Teckie Brett visited Salzburg, Austria, for a conference of teachers from all over Europe. She teamed up originally with two schools in Austria, two schools in France, one in Germany and one in Cork. After a process of elimination four schools are now involved: Gurraneasig NS, Kilbritain, Co Cork; Shoscome NS, Bath, England; Uttendors NS, Salzburg, Austria and Scoil Mhuire, Kilvemnon.

The pupils from all four schools will be involved in the same work integrating many subjects. The project will research the history, folklore, traditions, music, dance and culinary delights of each country.
Hand-in-hand with this project Scoil Mhuire has a German language teacher Ms Nina Kussin working in the school. Next June a number of pupils will accompany their teachers to Salzburg to present the fruit of their year's work to the other three schools. We wish them the best of luck.

CREDIT UNION – Another Credit Union year came to an end locally on September 30. Provisional figures issued at the end of the year indicate that it has been a year of sustained growth for our local credit union.

ST. MICHAEL'S DO WELL – Last year St Michael's NS won their grade in the county schools' football championship. As a result the village school was promoted up a grade for this year's championship. St Michael's, however, took on the challenge and have qualified for another county football final, this time in a higher grade. Last Friday in Fethard they had a big win over Kilsheelan in the semi-final. The final will be played after the Hallowe'en break as the other semi-final between Gaelscoil Durlas and Clerihan has not yet been played. Earlier in the season Mullinahone NS qualified for the semi-final by winning their section defeating New Inn and Gaelscoil Durlas on the way. Semi-final opponents Kilsheelan were runners up in the other section with Clerihan the winners.

Back to Friday's game. Referee was Gerry Ryan (Grangemockler). Mullinahone started well when their captain Killian Skorka kicked a point from a 45. David Walzer then scored a goal (the first of three) and Mullinahone were on their way. They were never headed and led by 3-3 to 0-2 at half-time. The trend continued during the second half and even though Mullinahone introduced many of their subs they ran out easy winners in the second half. The team lined out Jack McCarthy, Richie Walsh, Conor Vaughan, Sean "g Walzer, Killian Skorka (captain), Luke Mullally, Niall Walsh, David Walzer, Jack Shelly, Ciara Walsh, Robert Reilly. Subs: Eoin Brett, Joe Hogan, Liam Hicks, Aaron Hayden, Tyler Hicks, Kevin McGrath, Pat O'Halloran, Pierce Lawlor, Teresa Dunne, Erin Connolly and Kerrie Lawlor. We wish James Cahill and Sean Walzer the best of luck as they prepare the side for yet another county final.

CHANGE OF FOCUS – Now that the county senior hurling championship is over and Toomevara are again champions by virtue of a much-improved display in the final against Nenagh, our own lads can now refocus on the county intermediate football quarter-final which is due to take place on Saturday. As South Tipperary runners-up, they will play west winners who are Cashel. This means a change of colours for both clubs. Hopefully they can manage a victory and so advance to the county semi-final and perhaps in the future another clash with the South final conquerors, Kilsheelan. In minor football the county final with Loughmore is provisionally fixed for the first weekend in November. Another clash of colours here.
