Two Finals Are Reached

Over the weekend, Mullinahone sportsmen reached two finals

GAA

On Saturday afternoon, in Cloneen Mullinahone junior hurlers got the better of Carrick Swan in the South Tipp Junior B hurling semi-final. Final score was 2-11 to 0-09 in our favour. At half time we led by 1-06 to 0-06. In the final we willplay St. Marys who got a walk over from Moyle Rovers in the other semi-final. We deserve to win this game which was tough enough at times.

Our goalie, Richie Walsh made some great saves towards the end of the game when they were especially needed. When we lost Chris Horan very early, Liam Hicks came on and played very well causing some of us to wonder why he didn’t start. Two of our younger players Dara Kelly and Michael Cody showed future promise and should be backed by the club in striving to reach county level. Up front we scored two opportunist goals from Joe Hogan and John Murphy, but too many of our points came from frees well struck by Niall Cronin.

Towards the end of the game, supporters were delighted to see Denis Connolly make his comeback after injury and the last point of the game which he scored had a touch of class about it. Ky Vaughan at centre back injected plenty of spirit into the team while others to show up well were the Walzer twins, Davy and Sean and Gerard Horan. The team lined out Richie Walsh, Paul Luttrell, Martin Costello, Ciaran O’Shea, Richie Neary, Kyran Vaughan, Dara Kelly, Chris Horan, Michael Cody, Davy Walzer, Gerard Horan, Niall Cronin, Joe Hogan, Joe O’Meara and Sean Walzer.

Soccer

Following a comprehensive 6 - 2 win away from home last Sunday, the recently reformed Mullinahone soccer club now find themselves in the final of the divisional shield. The squad travelled to Bansha to take on an experienced and talented home team. Mullinahone got on to a great start with goals from Jamie Hindley and Michael Cooper and went in at half time leading 2 - 0.

On the restart, Bansha upped their game and were soon back on level terms.  However, the Mullinahone lads steadied the ship and playing some great football they went on to score four times in the second half. Jamie Hindley with 2, Michael Cooper with his second and Wayne Laslett with another ensured a 6 - 2  win. To reach a final, in their first season back in the League is a huge achievement for this hard working squad, their manager George Hindley and the backroom team. Well done to all involved.

Watch Out

Two local soccer loving lads will be mascots for Ireland against Germany on this athursday night. The two are Eoin O’Dwyer from Ballyvadlea and Alex Maher from Killaghy Street. We will hear more about their trip next week. Meanwhile, congratulations to both lads.
