Mullinahone F.C.

Having already qualified for the division 3 shield final ,it was back to league action last weekend for Mullinahone FC. They secured all three points with an emphatic 3-0 away win against Tipperary Town. Micheal Cahill has made a comeback in goal in recent weeks and gave another commanding display between the posts.

The goals came from Wayne Laslett, Jamie McGrath and Michael Cooper. Earlier in the week the club switched on their brand new flood lights, another indication of the progress made by Mullinahone FC since its revival.

Friends of Calcutta

Friends of Calcutta held a bona fide clothes collection in the church carpark in Mullinahone on Thursday last. There was much to admire about the collection apart from the purpose. The gentleman who was collecting stayed with the collecting van and made an effort to meet all who were donating. He also gave out leaflets explaining the work of the “Friends of Calcutta in that city.

The work of the group can be seen on their website This is the third time that the group has visited Mullinahone, but they wil be returning. I’m sure that they will give us plenty of advance notice.

Eoin Tips Us Off

Two local lads, Eoin O’Dwyer and Alex Maher had the trip of a lifetime on Thursday night last when they traveled to the Aviva Stadium in Dublin to be mascots at the Ireland via Germany soccer game. Both lads are playing members of the Mullinahone schoolboys soccer team. Their trip was organised by John Bermingham, Chairman of the reformed Mullinahone AFC who deserves great credit.

Alex is son of Emby and Vicky Maher of Killaghy Street and Eoin is son of the late Liam, and Colette O’Dwyer of Ballyvadlea. Perhaps, Eoin knew something great was about to unfold as he dropped a beautiful wink to the TV audience as the camera focussed on him before the game. Both boys also, were greeted by the President of Ireland, Michael D. O’Higgins.

Never was the lead up to any soccer game watched as keenly in Mullinahone as was Thursday nights game, as the local people were well aware that two local lads might be appearing. It made everyone’s night when Tippman Shane Long scored the winning goal against the world champions.

September Rainfall

Our Indian summer seems to be hanging on. September which began and ended with two fine spells had only 40 mm of rainfall on nine days mostly in the middle of the month. With three quarters of the year now gone, 546 mm of rain has fallen on 138 days. With a quarter of the year left, it looks as if 2015 will hardly be the wettest year on record.

Clothes for Calcutta Collection

A clothes collection for Calcutta will be taken up between 12 noon and 2pm on Thursday next 15th October in the Church car park.

Tidy Towns

The progress being made in laying new footpaths down along Kickham Street is being well monitored by locals. When completed, the job will certainly improve the look of the village. In spite of the fall -off in interest in our tidy towns earlier this year, it should be noted that the results for Mullinahone announced recently showed a slight improvement in marks for our village for the third year in a row for 2015.

Local Lotto

The last local lotto draw took place on Monday 5th October. The numbers drawn were 2,12,18 and 22. There was no jackpot winner, but there were 3 Match 3 winners. Congratulations to Aidan Morrissey, Brendan O’Sullivan and Nigel Brett who shared the Match 3 prize of €150. Next draw will be on Monday 19th October when the jackpot could be worth €12,700.

Community Draw

The new community draw is upon us once more. Cards are being distributed at present to all promoters. Please support our community draw for €20 per year for 12 draws / one every month. The money goes towards the insurance of the hall and it’s general upkeep. We hope to have the first draw in October. Your support would be greatly appreciated. Thanking all from Rita Curran.

GAA News

By the time these notes appear, we will be aware of our fate in the much on again/off again County Intermediate football semi-final against Upperchurch. Clonmel Óg whom we defeated in the South Final have since already qualified for the County Final when they defeated Holycross in the other semi-final.

Our Junior B hurlers have also been suffering from the off again/on again fixtures since they beat Swan in the semi-final to qualify to meet St. Marys in the final. It looks like this game will take place in Carrick-on-Suir, but our best advice to members is to keep your ears open re. fixtures and hope that Joe Tobin, who has been doing a superb job getting out accurate texts messages re. fixtures/ results will get to you on time. This text service for members has been very successful this year.

Two Finals Are Reached

Over the weekend, Mullinahone sportsmen reached two finals


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.


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.

Parish Newsletter

Anniversary Masses this weekend Saturday 10th October at 8pm Neville Brett, Carrick Rd. and Sunday October 11th at 11.30am Brian O’Brien, Ballylanigan. Congratulations to Mary Elizabeth Brett, Oakfield who was recently married to Timothy Joseph Ryan of Killenaule.

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.

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.

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.
