Young Ladies Do Well

Saturday last at opposite ends of the country was a good day for a number of our lady footballers. At Glanworth, Co. Cork, three of our minor footballers were members of the Tipperary panel which defeated Waterford 6-09 to 1-08 in the Munster Minor B Football final. Congrats to our 3 representatives, Aoibhe O’Shea, Aine Dunne and Nicole Shelly.

Meanwhile, in Ballymahon, Co. Longford Nicola O’Dwyer was goalkeeper on the Tipp U14 team that scored two goals in injury time to enable Tipp draw with Donegal in the All-Ireland U14B Football final. The replay is set to take place next weekend. Well done girls and good luck, especially to Nicola in the All-Ireland replay. Finish the job this time Tipp.

St.Michael’s N.S.

The boys and girls in Mullinahone N.S. are now on holidays, but the end of term was an exciting one for them. Perhaps, the highlight in the last fortnight was the winning of a County schools U11 hurling title when St. Michaels defeated Ballycahill N.S. in the final in Semple Stadium. For others, the highlight may have been the winning of a fifth green flag by the school this time for bio-diversity. Well done to the girls and boys and, of course, well done also to their teachers.

Library Book Bus

For the last number of years, Tipperary County Library has provided a mobile library service for boys and girls during the summer holidays. The library comes to the village in the form of a van/bus each Tuesday afternoon for six weeks and children are invited to come along and borrow books. The bus is in the Church carpark from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. Every year up to now the Book Bus has been most popular. The service is free, so bring the girls and boys along to avail of this fine service.

GAA Update

The C.J. Kickhams adult teams have had a fairly good week recently. On Wednesday evening our Intermediate footballers beat Carrick Swan by 1-10 to 1-07 to record their 3rd win in the championship. This win means that a draw with our final opponents Grangemockler will be enough to see us into the semi-final as group winners or runners up. In Junior hurling B, after a first day loss to Moyle Rovers, we improved on Friday night to defeat St. Marys 0-14 to 1-08 and so revive our championship hopes. However, at U14A level, our lads have been finding the going hard and another defeat the weekend didn’t help.

Credit Union Changes

Some major changes in the opening hours of Mullinahone Credit Union are due to come into force this week. The local Credit Union will now be opening for business on Thursdays from 3.30pm to 7pm and also on Saturday mornings from 10am to 1pm. The local office will not be open on Fridays.

Hickey’s Shop

For the best part of two generations Hickey’s shop across from the Church has been one of the landmarks of our village. Alas, the shop has recently closed to the disappointment of many. The following message comes from Eddie and Frances.  “It is with great sadness and regret that Eddie and Frances have to announce the closure of their business in Kickham Street.

We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation for all the great support from all our loyal customers. We will greatly miss all the good friends that we met and we will also miss the chats, craic and laughter that we enjoyed over the years. We will cherish these wonderful memories. Again, many thanks for your support and friendship over the years.”
