Juvenile AGM Deferred

The C J Kickham’s Juvenile A G M has been deferred for two weeks from this Thursday to Thursday 4th December at 8.30pm. Please pass on the word.

Fixtures Pile-Up

The U21 hurlers had their game against Ballingarry called off last weekend due to pitch conditions. This has caused a majors fixture pileup for the club as U21 hurlers, minor hurlers and intermediate footballers will all be in action the coming weekend. Coming up to the end of November, this is a ridiculous situation brought about among other things, by bad planning at board level with too many postponements being given and looked for during the height of summer weather.In the present situation, it is almost impossible for those in charge of club teams to keep the show going. Best of luck to all our teams who will line out over the weekend and support would be appreciated.

Walking out in Safety

Walking has become popular in the area as people of all ages strive to stay fit or keep their animals fit. With the coming of the dark evenings and mornings, walkers on the roads are reminded that they should be clearly seen and should if possible always wear high visibility jackets. Motorists are reminded to take extra care on the road and look out for “walkers”.

Micky Shea’s Motor Car

Back in the 1950’s a ballad called “Micky Shea’s Motor Car” was sometimes recited in Mullinahone and in other places.  Unfortunately, it was never written down, or so we think.  Now, some locals would like if possible to collect this old ballad.  If you have even a few lines of the ballad, or know anything about it, please contact Joe Tobin or Ricky Sheehan.

Local Lotto

The last local lotto jackpot draw took place on Monday 10th November. The numbers drawn were 14,17,20 and 21. There was no jackpot winner, but there were two match 3 winners. Congratulations to Edna Morris and John Houlihan who shared €150. The jackpot next week could be worth €8,500. If you want to win, do be in.

The children for First Holy Communion 2015 will assemble round the altar at the Our Father at all weekend Masses from now until First Holy Communion time as part of their preparation.

Library Book Bus

A very successful library book bus took place in Mullinahone during the summer. Certs were issued to those who took part. Some certs have still not found their way to the owners. If you know Aaron O’Shea, Roisin Hickey or Orla, Eoin or Cormac Boylan, please contact Ricky Sheehan.

Newsflash

"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
