Record Continues

When Eoin Kelly entered the game in Portlaoise in the 59th minute on Saturday night last, he received a great cheer from the Tipp fans. When he scored a point a few minutes later, the cheer was even bigger. Eoin’s appearance on Saturday was the first in the senior hurling championship this year by a Mullinahone player. Since John Leahy first played senior hurling championship for Tipp in 1988, at least one C.J.Kickham’s hurler has played senior championship for Tipp each year since. When Eoin came on he made it 27 straight years of Mullinahone appearances by himself, John Leahy, Brian O’Meara, Paul Kelly, Paul Curran and Denis Byrne. It is a great record which we hope can continue. Many spectators, who attended the game on Saturday night were of the opinion that the Tipperary defence would have been stronger had Paul Curran, who was among the subs, been included.


GAA History Book Sponsorship

The Mullinahone GAA History Book which has been 3 years in preparation is ready to go to the printers. If you would like to be a sponsor of this history, please get your name and sponsorship to a member of the history committee or to a GAA club officer straight away. To become a sponsor costs €50 and for this your name will be added to the list of sponsors in the book and you will also receive a free copy of the history. We hope that there won’t be people who will miss this last chance to be sponsors, but we are afraid that there will be some.

The club recently purchased 60 Mallard ducks and released them on sanctuary ponds in Poulacapple, Ballyvadlea, Bawnavrona and Clonagoose.

Summer Book Bus

The Summer Book Bus arrived in Mullinahone on Tuesday afternoon last with a great fanfare of balloons and a clown.  There was a large turnout of children and parents.  Do improve your child’s reading ability by bringing them along to the Summer Book Bus in the Church Carpark on Tuesdays from 2.30pm to 4.30pm for the next 5 weeks.  As the library only picks 3 villages in the county in which to run this scheme, it is important that you support the facility if you want to keep it in Mullinahone
