A County Minor

Congratulations to local hurler, Micheál Dunne. On Wednesday night last week, in Ennis, Micheál became the 18th C.J.Kickhams hurler to play minor championship for Tipperary. Micheál lined out at full forward against Clare and played the full hour. He also scored, but on the night Tipperary were not good enough and are now out of the championship. We hope that this is the start for Micheál of a long and successful career with club and county.

Local Elections.

The local election campaigns are beginning to gather steam in Mullinahone. The local message is that it is most important for our local community to be represented in the new County Council. It is up to all our voters by turning out to bring about this desirable result. Our community’s progress in the last decade or more didn’t come about by accident.
