Under 12's start to Improve

E-mail Print PDF

Earlier in the season, our Under 12 hurlers seemed to have a hard road in front of them. Now improvement has come due to regular coaching and the path looks much rosier. Last week on Monday night, the panel travelled to Callan to play a challenge match as part of their coaching. Two years ago, as under 10's, the lads shipped some heavy defeats from Callan but last week the tide had turned and Mullinahone ran out winners by 3 – 9 to 2 – 2. This represented huge improvement by Declan McNamara's charges. In the first round of the championship this year, our lads went down heavily to a very good Killenaule side. On Thursday night last, they were aout again, this time against Cahir. We had to field without our centre back who was on holidays, but the rest of the lads rose to the challenge and we won a thrilling game by 6 – 6 to 3 – 6. The sides were level at half time 2 – 4 each and we had to face the slope in the second half as the game was played in Mullinahone. We are out again on this Thursday night in Mullinahone, this time against Ballybacon. Plenty of support would be welcome. The panel of players who were involved in the games against Callan and Cahir was: Cathal Cavanagh, Shauna Kennedy, Conor Croke, Oisin Drennan, Bailey Grace, Conor O'Halloran, Stephen Reilly, Michael Cody, Sean Fitzgerald, Liam Fennelly, Colin Shelly, Eoin Brett, Keith Byrne, Oisin McNamara, Colm Mockler, Jordan Shortt, Darragh Kelly, David Whelan, Aaron Byrne, Dale Crowley, Jordan Denn, and Paul Houlihan. Well done lads. We might be reporting your progress into the championship semi-final yet.

The Ghost of Inchilkieran
This week, we bring you from the pen of Tim Burke R.I.P., a humorous poem called "The Ghost of Inchilkieran".
When coming home a lonely road, returning from a party,
I had no beer or spirits drunk, but I felt hale and hearty.
It was a starry moonlit night, the first night of November
When what I saw and what I felt I ever shall remember.
When all at once my mind was filled with tales I used be hearin"
Of men who said they often saw, a ghost at Inchilkieran
Still I went on with steady step, such tales I always doubted
And even should I see a ghost I thought, "well what about it"
A brave lad. We'll see how he gets on next week.

Local Lotto
The last draw took place on Monday June 14th when the numbers (8, 21, 24, 28) were drawn. We didn't have a Jackpot winner. We didn't even have a Match 3 winner, but the committee in charge drew five names from the hat to divide the Match 3 prize of E150. These lucky dips were drawn from among all the entrants in the lotto. Congratulations to Frances Webster, Sean Walsh, Una St. John, Kevin Walzer and Ger C. The next draw will be on Monday June 28th when the Jackpot could be worth E3,350. However you wont win if you are not in. E3,350 for just E1.50.

It sounds a good bargain to me.

The longest day
It is hard to believe but this Monday June 21st as we write is the longest day of the year. The weather for once is in keeping with the day. As days go and because 2010 is not a leap year, the nextunusual day coming up is July 2nd. Because of what we have said about 2010 not being a leap year, July 2nd will be the very middle of the 365 days of 2010. 172 days will have passed and 172 days will be yet to come. July 2nd will be the day before Tipp play Wexford. Let us hope that the result on July 3rd in Thurles doesn't make the rest of the year too long.

Looking Forward
We have also in July our Golf Classic to look forward to. We will have full details of that event next week, though we do know that the Classic will take place at Slievenamon Golf Course.

Summer Camp
Enrol in Mullinahone GAA Summer Camp. The Camp will take place this year from July 19th to July 23rd. Fun and numerous activities guaranteed. Application forms are available in our three Primary Schools or from Paul Curran.
