“March Many Weathers”

March locally lived up to its name of many weathers. Sometimes we even had the four seasons in the one day.In the end 64.2mm of rain fell on 15 of the 31 days. So far this year197mm of rain has fallen since Jan.1st.This compares most favourably with the 396mm which fell in the same period last year but look how that turned out later in the summer. I wonder what the April weather will be like. Will it be a case of “April showers bringing forth May flowers”?

Spring Cleaning

Spring is the season we associate with tidying up and cleaning after the ravages of Winter. The major cleanup in Limerick the other daywith 10000 people taking part led by J P McManus and Irish rugby captain Paul O’Connellwas inspiring. Now I wonder could something similar be be organised locally.Of course we all know that prevention is better than cure. Perhaps local residents can keep their eyes open to identify those who are polluting our countryside or streets near them.How about an antipollution campaign using photos?

Local Lotto Jackpot

The last Local Lotto Jackpot draw took place on March 29th.The numbers drawn wer 2,15,19 and 25.We had no Jackpot winner but two winners shared the match 3 prize of E150. Congrats to Eddie Hickey and Seamus Keating. The next  jackpot draw will be on Mon.next Apr.13th when the Jackpot could be worth E11,350.

Big Win

Mullinahone got off to a great start in the 2015 Tipperary senior hurling championship in Templetuohy on Sun. evening last when they defeated old rivals Toomevara by 13 points. What a pity there wasn't a bigger crowd of local supporters there to enjoy the win.Definitely the hurling played by the locals was the best for some years and must have pleased manager Adrian O’Sullivan and his selectors Johnny Kennedy and Franny Kelly. Mullinahone started without Eoin Kelly and Kevin Walzer though Kevin was able to come in during the 1st half. It was a case of all contributing though one would have to admit surprise at the recent decline in the Toome team. The other two teams in our group are Ballingarry and Boherlahan and they will play next weekend.The Mullinahone side which which lined out on Sun. evening .Alan Walsh, Niall Curran, Paul Curran, Keith Mullally, Gary Cronin, Eoin Fennelly, Luke Mullally ,Kevin Bolger,Cathal Horan, Sean Curran, Donal Cody, Micheál Dunne, Jack Shelly and Graham Horan.
