Sunday in Semple Stadium was by and large a disappointing day for Mullinahone people. The loss to Limerick in the final minutes was a major “downer”. We didn’t even have the consolation as we often had since 1988 of a Mullinahone representative on the Tipp team playing well. Our early view of the programme saw Paul Curran and Eoin Kelly listed as numbers 25 and 26 and neither was brought on. In the Intermediate game, things went somewhat better. Sean O’Meara was a selector on the team, while Kevin Walzer was No. 18 on the programme.

He didn’t get a run as the team stole the game in extra time, but perhaps in the next round. Well done to Sean and Kevin. For Tipp’s seniors, it is going to be the roundabout route through the qualifiers. Now, it is back to senior club hurling for all our players and a virtual make or break game against Ballingarry next Sunday in Clonmel. Hurling supporters will be hoping to have their spirits lifted by good displays from the players and their selectors.

Long Service

Last week, we wrote of P.F. Mullally, the first Mullinahone person to be elected to South Tipp Co. Council. This time we deal with the person with the longest service. In 1905, Patrick Keating of Crohane Lr. Defeated William O’Brien to win the Mullinahone seat. Patrick was returned unopposed in the elections of 1908, 1911 and 1914. In 1920, Mullinahone became part of the Fethard area with 4 seats. Patrick Keating was elected as a Sinn Fein candidate along with Philip Mansfield of Mullinahone village and 2 others. In 1925, he retired after 20 years service on the Co. Council.

"And I wouldn't much care for Sierra Leone, If I hadn't seen Killenaule
And the man that was never in Mullinahone,
Shouldn't say he had travelled at all."
