County Schools Hurling Title Won

Thursday last was another great day in the sporting history of St. Michael’s N.S. Mullinahone. Once again, after a number of near misses in recent years the school team won a County Schools Hurling Championship. In Semple Stadium, in a thrilling final, they defeated Ballycahill 3-16 to 5-04 giving a splendid display of hurling. It is quite an achievement for schoolboys to score 16 points in an half hour of hurling, especially when they are under 11.

The game kept supporters on their toes until referee Willie Barrett blew the final whistle. The team was coached by school principal James Cahill O.S. and Tom Butler O.S. who also teaches in Mullinahone N.S. The players who played in the final were James Cody, Sean O’Dwyer, Eoin O’Dwyer, Dylan Webster, Josh Rowan, Patrick Hayes, Joanne Hickey (the only girl), Luke Vaughan, Che Delaney-Scott (who had another big win over the weekend) and Colin Kinnane who was the team captain. On Saturday the team formed the backbone of the local U12 side which began their campaign with a good win over Ballybacon-Grange.  Well done to all concerned.

Local Lotto Jackpot

The last local lotto jackpot draw took place on Monday 15th June. There was no jackpot winner, but congratulations to Grace Healy who won the Match 3 prize of €150. The winning numbers drawn were 19,22,28 and 29. The next draw will be on Monday next 29th June, when the jackpot could be worth €12,700. Tickets for the draw now cost €2.

Good Week For Hurling

The past week has been by and large a good one for hurling in Mullinahone, even if it began on Wednesday night with a two point loss for our juniors against Moyle Rovers in their league. Thursday brought the U11 schools county title in Thurles. On Friday night, our seniors came from 7 points down at half time to defeat Burgess 3-13 to 1-14 in the Dr. Fogarty Cup semi- final in Drombane. Saturday saw our U12’s begin their championship campaign with a win over Ballybacon/Grange.

On Sunday, a bus load of our juveniles travelled to Limerick to see Tipp beat the home side in the Munster semi-final. They also saw Paul Curran busy on the sideline in his new role with the senior team. Sean O’Meara, who was a selector with the Intermediate team didn’t fare so well, as they went down to Limerick. We could have a busy summer of hurling ahead of us still. Congrats to our friend, Bill Maher who made his championship debut with Tipp seniors on Sunday. We are well aware that Bill was born in Mullinahone.

Table Quiz

A table quiz will take place in T.J. Macs at 9pm on Friday night. Great crack. Great prizes. A donation to the charity of the winners choice and an auction of an unique framed Tipperary/Kilkenny jersey signed by 2015 retired hurling greats Paul Curran, Eoin Kelly and Henry Sheflin will take place.

Mass of Celebration

Mohober N.S, are holding a closing ceremony Mass in celebration of the school. It takes place at the school on Thursday 25th June at 7.30pm. All are welcome and refreshments will be served afterwards.

A Good Start

Last week was a good one for football in Mullinahone. The death of our club president, John Vaughan, R.I.P. caused our first Intermediate football game of the year to be postponed until Wednesday night in Fethard. This game was against Moyle Rovers and the rather small number of supporters who were present were well pleased with the display of the locals who scored a 1-14 to 1-08 win over Moyle Rovers. This was followed up on Saturday evening, again in Fethard with a 4 point win over Clonmel Commercials.

Again, the team gave a good display to come back after a poor start. Further games against such as Carrick Swan and  Grangemockler lie in store, but the display of some of our younger players give hope for the future. It is good also, to have seen a good turn- out of senior hurling panelists for those games. The team which lined out against Moyle Rovers was M. Lonergan, K Walzer, A. Walsh, K Mullally, M Cody, N Curran, G. Cronin, P Curran, E. Keane, M. Dunne, S. Curran, N. Cronin, J. O’Meara, P. Kelly and G. Horan.

There were plenty of comings and goings from the parish over the weekend. On Friday 5th June, the junior pupils from Mullinahone N.S. had their school tour to the Watershed in Kilkenny. A most enjoyable day was had by all. On Sunday, it was the turn of our local schoolboys soccer squad to visit the Aviva for the Ireland v England soccer match. Again a great day, but a pity the lads didn’t see a goal. On Tuesday 30th June, our U12 footballers will travel to Croke Park to play a number of games. Plenty of travel for all.

John Vaughan R.I.P

The death took place at his home in Grove on Saturday last of one of Mullinahone’s great characters, John Vaughan. John had been unwell for some time. On his return from Wales in the late 1960’s John became involved with C.J. Kickhams GAA Club and also with Mullinahone Community Council. John called bingo numbers in the Community Centre on Wednesday nights for many years. He was one of those who caused the Community Field to be purchased by the GAA.

He represented the GAA at County Board level for many years. John became legendary for his video commentaries as Mullinahone rose in the GAA world. He was also a great supporter of Scór. May John Vaughan rest in peace as “Ni fheicimid a leithéid ann arís.” Condolences to his wife, Kathleen, to his sons and daughters and to the extended family. John was interred in Mullinahone Churchyard beside St.Michaels Church.

Credit Union

Currently Mullinahone Credit Union is engaged in what is legally known as a transfer of engagement with Mullinahone Credit Union. This means that our Credit Union and Clonmel Credit Union will join forces as the one Credit Union in the very near future. This amalgamation represents a very good deal for the members of Mullinahone Credit union. New and even better services will then be available to members in Mullinahone from link up day which will shortly be announced to members.

All services will become available to Mullinahone members in Mullinahone, Fethard or Clonmel as all 3 offices will be linked to the same computer.  It is sad to see our voluntary credit union come to an end after 37 successful years, but the local Board of Directors decided that the best way to safeguard and increase services to local members was to link up with a full time credit union.

The increased workload brought on by the regulator made it impossible for our local band of volunteers to carry on and to provide the service that our members are entitled to.  As stated, members will be informed of the date of the link-up in the near future.

Thank You

Thank you from Áine Brett to the local people who contributed to the recent church gate collection in aid of the Irish Cancer Society. A total of €803 was raised for this very worthy cause.

Wet and Windy May

May turned out to be both wet and windy. Hopefully, it will result in our barns being filled with corn and hay as the old saying promises. In all, 102.2mm of rain fell on 20 of the 31 days in the month. So far, May has proved to be the wettest month of 2015.
