A Brave Effort

The Munster Junior cup game between Cahir Park and Mullinahone resulted in a dramatic win 5-4 victory for Cahir Park following a penalty shoot- out. Mullinahone took a while to settle and conceded two goals within five minutes of the kick off. Both goals were scored by Willie Dunne. To their credit Mullinahone fought tooth and nail to get back in the game and a Wayne Lazzlett goal just before half time steadied the nerves.

Mullinahone came out for the second half determined to make a game of it and a brilliant volley from Kevin Walzer brought the game back to back to 2-2. Playing against first division opponents for the second week in a row the home team showed that they will be a force to be reckoned with as the season progresses. Urged on by their biggest crowd of the season it was end to end stuff as both teams tried for the winner.

The scoreline remained 2-2 after extra time and it took a penalty shoot out to decide the eventual winners. Before the game a minutes silence was respectfully observed by both teams as a tribute to former Mullinahone player Liam O’Dwyer who sadly passed away during the week. Liam was a formidable player in his day and a great supporter of all local teams .Despite his illness he was on the sideline for our last home game. May he rest in peace.

Community Council

The AGM of Mullinahone Community Council was held in the Knocknagow Centre on Tues. Sept.22nd. While attendance was open to all members of the community, the turnout was rather disappointing.

Cards will be distributed during the week to all the promoters. Please support our community draw. Cost is €20 per year for 12 draws i.e. one for each month. The money goes towards the insurance of our Community Centre and general upkeep. We hope to have the first draw in October, so your support would be greatly appreciated.

Parish Newsletter

The parish was rocked last week by the death of Liam O’Dwyer of Ballyvadlea. Whle Liam’s death at the age of 50 was not unexpected, it still came as a great shock to the local community. The turnout at Liam’s reposal, his removal to St. Michael’s Church, his funeral Mass and his burial was one of the largest seen locally in years.  Our deepest sympathy to his wife, Colette, and his three children, to his mother, Breda, his brothers and sisters and to the extended family. May he rest in peace.

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.

Both are first division sides, so the next two weeks will be very testing for the local squad.

Community Council AGM

The AGM of Mullinahone Community Council will be held in the Community hall on Tuesday next, 22nd September at 8pm. As always, this meeting is open to all members of our community and a big attendance is needed on the night. The main topic for discussion will be the future of our community hall and this is your opportunity to have your say.

Our hall needs to be updated as there are problems with the roof, electrics etc. We must ask ourselves what our requirements are. Do we want to cater for our senior citizens, bridge club and other groups presently using the hall? Do we want to expand to cater for other activities such as drama, dancing, music, yoga, cookery demonstrations, computer classes etc.? Without your support, the hall is in danger of closure which could also impact on the playschool which is attached to the community hall. The hall needs your support.

Schoolboys Soccer

Soccer training will commence for Under 8, 9 and 10 year olds on Saturday 19th September at 10am. The club enjoyed great success at underage level last year and lads can’t wait to lace up their boots again. Shane Long was the first Tipperary man to play for Ireland and so it won’t be long before Mullinahone boys don the green jersey at the Aviva Stadium. All are welcome to attend and to enjoy learning the skills of the game in a fun-filled non competitive environment. The Soccer club has undergone major transformation in recent months both on and off the field.

Local Lotto Jackpot

Lime In Water

The leaks in our village in the local water supply seemed to have been repaired, but what about the lime in our supply. We are told that this lime comes from a local borehole which is used as a temporary measure. Now readers will know that “income tax” was brought in, also, as a temporary measure in the early 1800’s.

Out of Hurling

Our senior hurlers made their exit from the County championship in Cashel on Sunday evening against championship favourites, Thurles Sarsfields. In the end, the score was 3-25 to 2-18, but many supporters were pleased with the fightback that the Kickhams made in the second half when the score against them at half-time was 3-16 to 0-08. It has been a difficult year for our hurlers and to qualify for the last 14 in the county and the South final wasn’t too bad.

We were the last team standing in the county championship from the south, as Killenaule exited the championship to Portroe some hours before us. Now, it is hoped that all will rally to the Intermediate football ranks in the South final against Clonmel Og in Carrick on Saturday next. The team which lined out on Sunday evening was A. Walsh, G. Cronin, P. Curran, K. Walzer, N. Curran, E. Fennelly, L. Mullally, K. Bolger, A. Curran, J. Shelly, E. Kelly, S. Curran, G. Horan, E. Keane and M. Dunne.

Heart Foundation

The Heart Foundation would like to thank all those who subscribed to their collection, or who helped out last weekend. The sum of €636 was raised.

Junior Soccer

Tony Watters was the hero when he came off the bench to score for Mullinahone against Cullen Lattin at the weekend. There were only three minutes left to play when Tony  got on the end of a cross to power home a  header which earned the away side a deserved share of the spoils.

Mullinahone dominated the game for long periods and could have been three goals up in the first half. They were 1-0 down at the break and came out for the second half determined to get back in the game. Aidan Mc Grath came on at half time and had an immediate impact. Sean Bermingham came close to scoring and brought a fine save from the Cullen goalie. Moments later his rasping shot came off the bar. Shane O Connell was unlucky not to find the net when his shot hit the post.

The game seemed destined for a home win when Cullen scored in one of their few attacks. The Mullinahone backs were to the wall at this stage but to their credit they never gave up trying and piled on the pressure in an attempt to equalise. Tony Watters earned them a deserved draw and Mullinahones first point of the season.

Juvenile GAA
