Keep the Parish Neat & Clean July 5th

Keep the Parish Neat & Clean

Last week we were glad to report that each of our three primary schools in the parish had qualified to fly “the green flag”. We noted that it was a unique achievement for parishes and it was hoped that all adults would take a lead from the children of the area re clean and green.

Some time ago, FAS locally took part in a County wide drive to clean up the approach roads to all villages in the County. Again we hoped that having been given a start the householders of the area, would adopt a policy of keeping outside of their own premises clean and tidy with no rubbish.

There seemed to be some success but alas only some. Last week, there was some cutting of roadsides in the village and it was noted that approach roads to the village and streets were becoming once again homes to litter. While some were involving themselves in the keeping clean campaign, others have been letting the side down. It may not be you that is dropping litter on the roadside outside your patch but it like Frankie Byrne of long ago, be your problem some day. Help the community at large keep your own patch tidy.

If everyone did a little in this regard, there would be little to do. The used clothes bin in aid of the I.S.P.C.C has now been transferred to outside the tennis court inside the village limits. Please use it. On Sunday at the big game in Monroe, I noticed a young lad (not from this parish) being very insistent that someone should have a pocket for his empty crisp bag. He was only about three years old. Well done young man and well done to his parents as well. Do keep our parish neat and clean and it will reflect well on all of us.

Local Lotto

Our local lotto jackpot was not won on Monday June 23rd.

Next draw will be on Monday July 7th, when the jackpot could be worth €8,300. You could even have change from a great weekend at the Munster final.

Weather Report

People have been saying that our weather has gone astray and that the seasons are all mixed up. They may be right. We expected that May might be wet and windy and that such weather would fill the haggards with corn and hay.

Well it didn’t turn out that way and May produced only a small amount of rainfall. However, the end of June produced plenty of wind and rainfall with approximately 100cm of rainfall in the month. This equates to about four inches. Perhaps the May weather has arrived a month late.

Junior Golf

Monday June 30th saw junior golf start in Callan Golf Club at 8.30am. Beginners over the age of 10 were welcome.

Priests Collection

Next weekend the summer collection for the priests of the Archdiocese will be taken up. You can submit your donation in the pink envelope dated June 29th in your box of weekly envelopes.

Of course, you don’t need a special envelope to subscribe but do put your name and address on your subscription envelope.

Fly the Flag

With the parish expecting to have two important members in the Tipperary team in the Munster hurling final in Limerick, we ask parishioners to fly the Tipperary colours in support of the team.

Ladies Football

Our junior Mullinahone – Slievenamon side has succeeded in getting to the league final after a great win in the replay against Boherlahan. The replay between Mullinahone – Slievenamon and Boherlahan took place in Killenaule last month on the 20th of May.

It was obvious from the start that both teams were hungry for the win and it was going to be a battle of wits to the end. The first goal for the team came when the ball slipped through the Boherlahan goalkeeper’s fingers complements of Rebecca Meagher. Mairead Comerford delivered an excellent goal and the Mullinahone – Slievenamon scores reflected a stronger side at half time. However, the team went back in with the right attitude of its not over until the final whistle blows

The scores at half time were Mullinahone – Slievenamon 2-3, Boherlahan 0-4. The Boherlahan side put up a good fight and came close, keeping the team on their tiptoes. Boherlahan scored three goals in the second half illustrating that they were not going to give up without a fight. Both performed a lively and exciting game for their spectators. Eileen Brennan scored the final sneaky goal for the team.

Fortunately, our team came out on top, with a score of 3-13 to Mullinahone – Slievenamon, to Boherlahan 3-5. The team togged out on the day included: Nicky Higgins, Aimee Maloney, Alison Langton, Joanne Cody, Gillian Collins, Aoife Fogarty, Roisin O Meara, Jenny Meagher (Capt.) Mika Bordoul, Anita Walsh, Eileen Brennan, Mairead Comerford, Aisling O Brien, Gillian Fogarty, Caroline Meagher, Kathleen Lonergan, Patricia Lonergan and Brid Costello.

Congratulations to all the team and the best of luck in the final, which takes place next Sunday and all support would be gratefully appreciated.

Senior Hurling

Our senior hurlers have qualified for the south senior hurling championship with a good win over a very determined Carrick Swan. This year’s championship has proved to be very competitive between all the clubs so it was very important that the players worked hard to get results. This they did on Sunday and in the end were worthy winners. Well done to all involved.

We wish a speedy recovery to Alan Curran who fractured his wrist in the recent Killenaule game.
