Historic Moment

In the GAA centre in Clonmel last Sunday night history was made as Dick Egan became the first member of our club to be elected Chairman of the Senior South Board. This is a tremendous honour for Dick and our club.We congratulate Dick on his high office and look forward to working with him in the future. We also congratulate his wife Bridget whose support made this possible. I’m leaving the privilege of a more detailed report to his long time friend Rickie Sheehan in his weekly column.

U 21 B Hurling

Having recently won the county u 21 b football this group of players continue on their way to try and achieve the double this year. They took a major step in that direction by beating Boherlahan in the county semi final in a very cold Littleton on Sunday last. Mullinahone were making the early running scoring two early points and with Kevin Walzer adding a goal finished the half on a high.

Boherlahan were not going to let this game to easy and they through every time at Mullinahone in the second half. However, we held out to put us in the county final. The team on the day gave a good account of themselves and credit must go to them for digging deep when they had to. The forwards and midfield fought hard all through for possession with the backs, led by a superb Ned Tobin at centre back gave a great defensive display.

They look forward to the county final on December 14th and we can only wish them well on their journey. Well done all on the day.

You can show your appreciation for this team by supporting their car wash on next Saturday in the car park.

Club Development

You may have noticed in recent weeks that the club car park and entrance has received a much needed face lift. Tarmac has been laid at a cost of €30,000. We received a council grant of €20,000 with the remaining €10,000 being borrowed.

As you can see apart from the running costs of all our teams throughout the year there are ongoing maintenance and development costs. These costs are totally dependant on the generosity of our supporters at fundraising events.

Lucky But Are Now in County Final

E-mail Print PDF

There is an old saying that "is better to be lucky than rich". On Sunday afternoon last, in an icy Littleton, our under 21 hurlers used up more than a fair share of the cats nine lives when they just got the better of Boherlahan in the county hurling semi final. The victory margin was a single point 1-9 to 0-11.

At half time, we led by four points and a point just after the restart put us five clear. It looked good at that stage, but then we went into a decline and Boherlahan came back point by point and eventually drew level. We edged in front again but the mid champions again drew level and looked the more likely to hit the front as the final whistle loomed. However, it was ourselves who got the lead point and were still holding it as the referee blew the long whistle after a shortened period of added time.

The most frustrating aspect of the game for our supporters was the fact that every one of Boherlanns scores in the second half came from frees. This was not the referees fault. Many of the frees came because our lads came in from behind tackling with the hurley. The offence was compounded by a number of players questioning the referee's decisions and having the ball brought forward into much easier scoring range.

"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."
