Mullinahone Take 7th Title
Well done to our intermediate footballers and their mentors on winning the 2015 South Tipp Intermediate Football Final on Sat. last. The game was played in Davin Park, Carrick on Suir and we beat Clonmel Óg by 2-08 to 0-08. We now progress to the county quarter final in which we play Cashel in New Inn on this Wednesday night 23rd September at 7.30pm.
This game will be played under lights. We won the first South Tipp Intermediate football championship played in 1965. Our next win came in 1989 and we have won five more titles since then. Our team which won the final on Saturday deserve great credit for standing up when things seemed to have been going against them.
Blow number one came when Eoin Kelly was unable to play and the second major blow came sixteen minutes into the game when Sean Curran was injured and had to go off. Our victory owes much to our dual veterans who have served us well over the years. Among them were Kyran Vaughan, Niall Curran, Paul Curran, Alan Curran and Paul Kelly.
These were joined by some promising young guns, Michael Cody, Enda Keane, Colin Shelly, Micheál Dunne and Graham Horan. The two groups were linked by such as Michael Lonergan, Kevin Walzer, Luke Mullally and Jack Shelly who have been around for a while. Saturday, also saw the return to our colours of our 2011 winning football captain, James Connolly. Our football record since 1989, six south titles, is rather good, but could be even better if the example of our veterans and our mentors were better followed.

The local soccer team have started the season in great fashion, having only lost one of their first four competitive games. However, a huge challenge is coming up. Next weekend the team travel to Clonmel to play Redmonstown in the FAI junior cup. The following weekend Cahir Park come to Mullinahone in the Munster junior cup. Both are first division sides, so the next two weeks will be very testing for the local squad.
Open Day Thurles Garda Station on Saturday 26th September from 2pm to 5pm. Free and good information to be obtained.
Hard luck to our 16 hurlers who lost to Cahir by an injury time goal in the South semi-final 3-10 to 1-13. Cahir went on to win the final rather easily. With the under 12’s , 14’s and 16’s now finished for the year and the 6’s, 8’s and 10’s finishing in the next week nor two, our thanks to all players and mentors for all your effort and time given in 2015. This is greatly appreciated.
The AGM will be fixed for early November to start planning for next year. New players, mentors etc. are always welcome to come and get involved.
