25 March 2004
THE EVE of Daffodil Day quiz in Quirke's was well attended.
Scoring was high and there was a close finish. In the end victory went to Jackie Bolger, John Kennedy and Paddy Hickey.
They finished one point ahead of Kitty Crosse, Kathleen McNamara, Eamon O'Dwyer and Liam Gahan.
There was a real pile up for third with a play-off being needed to separate the teams.

The teams were Ann Needham, Maureen Croke, Eleanor Quirke and Bridget Quirke; Oliver Vaughan, Seán Brett, Aine Brett, Seán Walzer, Maura O'Sullivan, Helen Carey, Mary Gunn and Biddy Clarke.
Ann Lonergan, Amelia O'Halloran, Nelly Cahill and Rosie Walzer were busy collecting answer sheets.
Late subs may be handed to Ann Lonergan who will be glad to pass them on to the South Tipperary Hospice movement.
Next quiz in the series is on April 15.
This quiz will be in aid of the Ladies Football Club and the underage Football and Hurling Club.
It is planned that each question will be sponsored.

football – The 2004 South Tipp under-16 football championship got underway on St Patrick's Day.
The local lads travelled to Cloneen and played an exciting draw with St Patrick's. On Sunday they lined out against Ardfinnan and pulled off a surprise but deserved win, thanks to sub Niall O'Brien goal.
The final score was Mullinahone 1-8, Ardfinnan 1-6. Because this panel of lads won the county under-14 'B' football title in 2002 they are playing in the 'A' grade of the under-16 championship this year.
They play nine other teams in the league section and so far they have shown great heart.
Their next outing is on March 29 when they travel to Fethard to take on the locals in round three.

team – Michael Lonergan, Ciarán O'Shea, Joseph O'Meara, Richard Morrissey, Niall Mullally, Ned Tobin, Seán Quirke, Shane O'Brien, Donal Cody, Kevin Walzer, Kieran Gahan, Shane Lawlor, Eoin Egan, James Mockler, Michael Cooper. Subs used Alan Walsh, David O'Meara and Niall O'Brien.
The under-12s begin their championship campaign on March 27. They play Killenaule in the local sports field at noon.
The under-12s compete in the South Tipp 'B' championship.

looking good – There has been substantial progress made in the extending of the credit union office in Killaghy Street.
