Community Park

The summer is finally on its way and so too is the good weather (hopefully) which means the park will be in full swing once again. We would like to remind people that the park is open to everyone. Anti-social behaviour or bullying will not be tolerated. The park has cc tv in operation 24/7. However, the onus is on all of us to monitor our facility and to report any incidents to a member of the committee. Hurling, pellet guns or bicycles are not permitted within the park at any time. We really do have a beautiful playground. We hope to run tennis and soccer again during the summer, so keep an eye out for these events. Let’s make the most of our park and the good weather. We hope to see you there.

Community Council

Mullinahone Community Council will hold an open meeting on Thursday May 15th in the Community Centre. We urge each club, society and group to have a representative present. We also invite individuals who have an interest in getting involved in the community council to attend. Our community council supports many groups in the locality and always seeks to improve the way of life of all in our community.

Community Improvements

A number of locals were recently discussing improvements in the community during the last dozen or so years. They came up with the following list which isn’t complete by any means. (l) the childrens’ playground in the Community Park (2) relief from flooding in the village due to the draining of the river (3) the provision of a good new and reliable water supply for the locality (4) the community text alert service (5) the community health centre (6) the local GAA centre (7) St. Michael’s state of the art village school. It should be realised that these improvements have benefitted the entire community, children, young people, adults and the elderly. Any person would admit that we have much to be grateful for. The Celtic Tiger was definitely persuaded to be generous in our locality.

GAA History Book Patronage

If you or any of your family wish to become a patron of our GAA history book which will be launched later this year, please contact any of the committee members or GAA club officers, Martin Cody, Eddie McCarthy, Albert Curran, Tommy O’Sullivan, Joe Tobin, Rickie Sheehan, Sean O’Meara, Neil Thompson or Dick Egan. Patronage will cost €50 which includes a free copy of the publication and the patrons name included in the book. We look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Fundraiser

Aaron Denny of St. Michael’s NS, Mullinahone raised €600 for cancer research in a shave or dye event. All the pupils participated in this fundraiser by wearing PJ’s or no uniforms to school.

Your Help Needed

A meeting will take place on Friday next, 16th May at 9pm in C.J.Kickham’s GAA Centre. Our local Independent candidate, Eddie O’Meara needs all your help in the final push for votes. We need to ensure that we have an Independent representative in the new Tipperary County Council to look after the needs of our community. We need a Councillor who is only answerable to the people of the local electoral area and not to Party Headquarters (far away). If you can help, come along on Friday evening at 9pm.

GAA news

Our U16 footballers play their semifinal on this Thurs. evening. As we go to press venue or opponents are not known.If the U16s win the final will be in Cahir on Sun. next at 12 noon. The loss by our senior hurlers to Ballina on Sat. night severely damages our championship prospects. It seems that only a South final can now save our season.

"And I wouldn't much care for Sierra Leone, If I hadn't seen Killenaule
And the man that was never in Mullinahone,
Shouldn't say he had travelled at all."

 

poet. C.J. Boland
