Cork Win Brings Stone Man to Life

Mullinahone took park in the great Tipperary trek to Cork on Sunday last. While the numbers who travelled may not have been up to the great treks of the other days, there was a definite increase in increased interest over that displayed in more recent years. 

The local mood was much more upbeat than that which existed for last years quarter final with Wexford. Of course, our own flag was proudly flown by our two representatives of the county team. Eoin Kelly was the captain of the side. Of course, the 1-7 that he scored shoved him up even further on the list of all time championship scorers. Never before in the history of our clubs has one of our players’ captained Tipperary to Munster Senior Championship game victory in hurling.

Back in 2003, Brian O Meara led Tipperary to several victories but these were in the qualifiers. At the other end of the field, Paul Curran is playing great hurling and his displays are so good that he in managing to keep a current All Star on the subs bench. 

The first senior championship win over Cork in Cork for more than eighty years brought even “The Stone Man” on the village square to life. In the very early hours of Sunday night/ Monday morning, he somehow donned a Tipperary heresy and pronounced himself ready for the Munster final. At the moment, his time clock is a little out of sync and he may get into trouble with the team’s current sponsors as the jersey he is wearing seems to be a “Finches” one.

Incidentally our “Stone Man” didn’t even exist when we last beat Cork in the hurling championship by the Lee. Local will soon get a chance to see the Cork heroes in action on Saturday evening next in the South Championship when Mullinahone will take on Ballybacon. 

As well as seeing our own two lads in action, we also have the chance to see Tipperary goalie Brendan Cummins in action with Ballybacon. This of course presents local children with the chance to see television hurling stars playing in the flesh if their parents would bring them along to the game on Saturday evening.

Thank You Mairead

On Saturday evening last, St. Michael’s National School came together to honour Ms. Mairead Anglim who has just retired after 26 years of excellent service to the children and parents of St. Michael’s National School.
Mairead took up a position in St. Michael’s as Mairead Molloy in 1982. The evening of thanks giving began with a special Mass in St. Michael’s Church celebrated by Fr. McGrath P.P. After Mass the celebrations and presentations continued in the beautiful hall of St. Michael’s National School.

Many tributes were paid to Mairead and pupils representing her 26 years in Mullinahone greeted her. Tea was served to the many visitors by members of the Board of Management and their helpers. To Mairead, we say “Go raibh maigh agat as do sheirbhis” and may you enjoy a deserved retirement. To all those who organised the evening on behalf of the rest of us, we say “Mile buiochas”.

Well done to Eoin Kelly and Paul Curran on Tipperary’s super win over old rivals Cork last Sunday. They now await the winners of Limerick and Clare in the Munster final. It would be nice for us all to get behind the team and the lads and lets show some colour around the parish and village.

 You can see both players in action for their club when Mullinahone take on Ballybacon in the 1st round of the south senior hurling championship next Saturday evening. 

At juvenile level, we had five players representing us with the South Tipp U14 hurlers. Well done to the players involved. Also well done to Martin Cody on successfully coaching Clerihan’s U10 team to County Champions recently. They go on now to represent Tipperary in the Community Games finals. 

The club would like to wish all our players doing exams every success.
