E-mail Print PDF
THE OFFICIAL opening of the refurbished St Michaels NS is on April 29, 12 noon.
The opening ceremony will be by South Tipperary Deputy Noel Davern who will stand in for Minister for Education and Science Noel Dempsey. All are welcome to the ceremony which concludes a project which was of immense value to the village and the area at a time when many places were hoping to have other education projects sanctioned.

church – The Easter ceremonies in St Michaels Church were well attended.
The laity played a full part in all the services. There were lots of readers, the choir in good voice and five new eucharistic ministers were enrolled.
New Ministers are Nellie Cahill, Michael Cahill, Rocks Road, Pat Fitzgerald, Fethard Street, Paul Meehan, Carrick Street and Seamus Reilly, Callan Road.
The Spring Collection for the priests and retired priests of the archdiocese was taken up last weekend.
Trocaire boxes should have been returned on Good Friday.

For the Summer, evening Masses in St Michael's church will be at 8pm. The last month has seen two lovely donations to St Michael's Church.
Before Easter Aggie Morrissey donated a new ciborium in memory of Danny Morrissey, Callan and formerly of Ballyvadlea who died earlier in the year.
A new holy water font has been donated by the Pollard family in memory of their parents Mikey and Mary Pollard, late of Kilvemnon Cross and Kickham Place.
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is each Thursday in St Michael's Church 7pm - 9pm. This is a time for reflection and private prayer.
The novena of Divine Mercy began on Good Friday and continues for nine days, finishing on April 18.
The parish acknowledged the hard work of Fr McGrath PP during the year.

art – The Community Games art and model-making county final was in Fethard.
Niall Brennan under-10, Ben Reilly under-12 and Matthew Brennan under-14 came third in their categories in art.
Meghan Vaughan under-12 came first in model-making.
Meghan travels to Mosney later in the Summer to represent Tipperary and Mullinahone in the National under-12 model-making competition.
ladies football – The ladies kicked off their 2004 league campaign in Mullinahone with a game against Templetuohy.
The club thanked all who sponsored a question for Thursday's table quiz.
A set of jerseys will be presented by Anner Transport on quiz night.

first win – Last year when Mullinahone Juvenile GAA club held a fundraising table quiz a number of teams representing John Lockes GAA Club, Callan travelled to support them.
On Thursday this support was reciprocated when two teams representing Mullinahone GAA, one senior club and one juvenile club, took part in a fundraising quiz for John Lockes Juvenile Club in the Steppes Bar.
Owners Pat and Marie Collins, Killaghy Castle, welcomed Mullinahone's support. Pat was question master. There were 21 teams.

After a keenly fought contest a team representing Mullinahone GAA Club (senior section), Victor Direen, Jackie Bolger, Ricky Sheehan and Dick Egan won by a slender margin.

lotto – the local lotto jackpot of over e6,000 was not won.
Numbers: 2, 8, 9 and 25. Three winners shared a match three prize of e150:
Bernie Cuddihy, Brian Vaughan and Josie Duggan.
The jackpot on April 19 could be e6,150.

council – The Community Council 400 club draw for March was held at a recent meeting of Knocknagow Social club. Winners: e150 Molly Morrissey c/o Tess Morrissey; e70 Eleanor Wynne, Carrick Road; e25 Anna Mai White, Clonlahy; e25 Edward O'Brien, Victualler.

golf – The captain's prize outing was held in Callan on Bank Holiday Monday.

quiz – Thursday brings the sponsored table quiz in aid of the juvenile GAA club and the Ladies Football club.
The quiz will be held in Quirke's Lounge, 9.45pm.
The GAA team of last week has been sidelined as Ricky Sheehan will ask the questions and Dick Egan will be among the correctors.
sports hall – The open day at the new sports and activity hall attracted a number of visitors on Sunday. Most were impressed with the end project and the work carried out so far.

underage GAA – The under-12 footballers were disappointed when they gathered to play St Martin's, Marlfield and then found out at very short notice that the Clonmel boys were not travelling.
Mullinahone travel to Ballyporeen for an important game on Thursday.

At under-14 the locals won a round two clash in Feile hurling with Kilsheelan in Cloneen and advanced to the semi-final.
On Saturday they went down to Moyle Rovers but were consoled somewhat when Moyle Rovers went on to win the final.
This weekend the under-14 football competition for Feile Peil begins.

At under-16 level the footballers fell to Moyle Rovers but stayed close to the favourites for a long time.
Carrick Swan pulled out of this competition and as a result the locals got a bye .
With seven points the serious business of trying to qualify for the semi-finals now begins.

In a ten team 'A' group this would be an achievement. On Easter Monday Donal Cody, Ned Tobin and Shane O'Brien all played on the South Tipp under-16 team which lost the Munster quarter-final to Imokilly (Cork) in Lismore.

chiropodist – The visiting chiropodist will be in the village on April 26, 10 am.
