Mullinahone News September 8th

E-mail Print PDF

Hurling News

The weekend was dominated by the All-Ireland final. Even though tickets were expensive and scarce , a good number of local supporters travelled and were generally happy with the trip though the whole rigmarole will have to be gone through again on Saturday fortnight. In the meanwhile, the blue and gold colours will stay up in the village and, perhaps, a few more will have to be added. A number of questions arise.

Will our South Tipp senior hurling final with Killenaule go ahead next weekend?  At halftime on Sunday last they 1989 Tipp team which won the All-Ireland 25 years ago was introduced to the crowd. This team included John Leahy who had gained his place on the senior team the previous year. This year with Eoin Kelly coming on Mullinahone’s great record of having at least one player on Tipp’s senior hurling championship team for 27 consecutive years continued, but could an end be coming to that great record?

On the underage front, hard luck to our U14’s who lost their final to Clonmel Óg last week.  Well done to mentors, Micheál Cahill, Alan Walsh and Edwin O’Meara on getting the team so far.

Ladies Football

Congrats to Aoibhe O’Shea and Áine Dunne who were part of the Tipp U16 Ladies Football team who defeated Laois in the All-Ireland final in Nenagh recently. Áine had a great game at corner back while Aoibhe was top scorer. Congrats also to the club U12’s who won the Plate at the recent U12 blitz in Bansha. Our junior team had a big win in the championship semi-final against Ballyporeen on Saturday though there should be a far better turnout for the  upcoming final. Well done to all the girls.

Community Centre Open Meeting

An open meeting will take place in the Knocknagow Community Centre on this Thursday night at 8.30pm. All members of the community are welcome to attend.

Congratulations on their recent wedding to Lisa O’Riordan, Ballydonnell and Thomas Keating, Ballyneale who were married in St. Michael’s Church last week. On Sunday next, the Pallasgreen Passion Play on TV at 9.30 might be worth a look.

History Book Sales

GAA History Book sales have been going well and while there are still a good numbers of books for sale locally, it looks as if supply will fall short of demand in the not too distant future. It might be wise not to wait for a second printing, as there is not likely to be one.

Attempted Robbery

“Hawkeye” might have been active in Croke Park on Sunday last but he didn’t spot the major error on page 70 of the official programme. We would like to congratulate Pádhraic Foley of Poulacapple N.S. on playing in the Cumann na mBunscoil  hurling game. However we would like to state that Poulacapple N S is in the parish of Mullinahone in the county of Tipperary. The school also plays in Cumann na mBunscoil competitions in Tipperary. Watch out Hawkeye.
