 Under 14's receive County Medals

Mullinahone under 14 hurlers who won the South and County under 14 titles this year were presented with their medals at a most injoyable function held in the new sports hall on Saturday night last.

 

The young hurlers were presented with their medals by Mullinahone and Tipperary hurler Paul Curran.

 

Paul encouraged the players to build on their success and to further develop their skills. He also said that the greatest satisfaction that the players would ever get would come from playing with their own club teams.

 

A presentation was also made from the club to under 16 player Sean Curran who was a member of the Tipp under 16 All Ireland winning team this year.

 

The players who were presented with their medals on Saturday night were Gary Cronin (caption), Richard Walsh, Diarmuid O Halloran, George Browning, Killian Skorka, Luke Mullally, Niall Kennedy, Jack Shelly, Eoin Fennelly, Cathal Horan, William Croke, Denis Connolly, Stephen Quirke, Jack McCarthy, Sean Walzer, David Walzer, Conor Vaughan, Graham Horan, Paul Gayson, Michael Dunne, Joe Hogan, Chris O Brien and Robert Reilly.

 

 

Golf

The AGM of the local Mullinahone Golf Society took place on November 23. Fr John McGrath PP has consented to become honorary president of the society and his election was sanctioned at the AGM.

 

The new captain of Mullinahone Golf Society is Joe Pollard of Carrick Road.

 

The captains number is 052 53366, treasurer is Michael Hickey, Clonagoose, 052 53351; secretary is Kevin Keating Clonagoose, 052 53169.

 

The society’s next outing will be to Mountain View on December 15. Could that be Ballyhale? The format of the outing will be a scramble.

 

There will be prizes galore as Santa Clause has promised to advance a sub. Annual membership of €20 is due on the day.

 

New Play

It would seem that inspiration has struck local playwright William Egan once again. His latest offering comes at an opportune time when Mahon Tribunal is investigating the banks and the bankers or is it politicians and planning. The latest offering seems to be, sit for an early.

 

 

Well Done Emma

In the 1970s and early 1980s when Mullinahone was not a hurling force, the Ballydonnell pair of Jimsy Kelly and Joe Williams were generally acknowledged as the two leading adult hurlers of the group, especially as far as skill was concerned. We all know how the next generation of Kellys have advanced to the top of the hurling pile.

 

They recent All Ireland club camogie final won by Cashel, say another generation of the Williams family win an All Ireland camogie medal. Our congratulations to Emma Williams who was a member of that Cashel panel.

 

Emma is the daughter of the earlier mentioned Joe and Ann Williams. She began her career hurling in Mullinahone before moving on to camogie with Slievenamon and then Cashel.

 

Christmas Outing

The local Knocknagow Retired Peoples Club will hold their annual Christmas outing on December 13.

 

Lotto

There was no winner of the local lotto jackpot on November 26. The winning numbers were 6, 7, 10, and 11. Three people shared the match 3 prize of €150 euro. Net Keating, Pat Barron and Maggie Houlihan.

 

The next draw will be on Monday when the jackpot could be worth €4,100.

 

Mullinahone Bishop

The parish of Mullinahone joins with the Diocese of Ossory in congratulating the new Bishop of Ossory, Bishop Seamus Freeman.

 

Bishop Seamus, though reared in Coolagh, where his mother still resides, was not born in Kilkenny or Ossory. He was born in the parish of Mullinahone.

 

A little known fact is that his two parents Jimmy Freeman R.I.P and Biddy McGuire were natives of Mullinahone and both were in the same class in Kilvemnon NS in the late 1920s and early 1930s. They were later to marry and then some time after moved to Coolagh with their young son Seamus.
