Visiting South Tipperary Hospital

The list of patients is no longer available to priests visiting South Tipperary General Hospital. If you wish a priest to visit a patient there, you need to inform the priest who is in the hospital and what room they are in. Our priest cannot call to see a patient if he doesn’t know that they are there.

Do you Remember

Prior to 1986, Mullinahone had never won a South Tipp Juvenile hurling title. In July of that year in The Commons this was to change forever as C.J.Kickhams defeated red hot favourites Killenaule in the South Tipp U14 Rural Hurling final. Five of that panel were to go on to play Minor Championship hurling for Tipperary. The complete panel that evening was P. Skehan (capt.) B. O’Meara, T. McNamara, D. McGrath, P. Lynch, M. Skehan, J. Hennessy, J. O’Brien, P. Croke, G. Dalton, K. Vaughan, K. Sheehan, D. McNamara, A. Foxe, J. O’Shea, T. Gunn, T. Cahill, S.O’Brien, T. Dalton, B. Vaughan, E. Power, M. Keating  and L. Crowley. This is one of the interesting facts you can read about in C.J.Kickhams “The Green Above the Red”, but where are all those lads now.

Local Lotto

The last local lotto jackpot draw took place on Monday 15th September.The numbers drawn were:  2,4,10 and 14. There was no jackpot winner, but there was one Match 3 winner.

Tickets are €20 for 12 monthly draws. All cards to be returned by the 30th September. The first draw will take place on Friday 3rd October in the Community Centre and all are welcome to attend the draw. It is vital that we have support as this is the main source of income for the Community Centre and funds are badly needed to ensure the future of the Centre. You are also supporting the Playschool which is located on the grounds. Thank you for your support.

Big Days Coming Up

Our Intermediate footballers played poorly to go under to Swan in the championship on Saturday last, but still showed enough to have hope of better things in future rounds. Attention now turns to the replay of the All-Ireland on Saturday next.  Best of luck to Eoin and Paul. Two local young people will line out in Croke Park in the Primary Schools Game. Best of luck to Joanne Hickey (Kickham St.) Mullinahone N.S. and Eoghan O’Brien (Ballydavid) Kilvemnon N.S. Our senior hurlers will line out in the South Final the weekend after the All-Ireland and our U21 and Minor hurlers will also be soon in action. The gaelic year is still far from being over.

Under Age Games

U6 Football

Last Sunday saw a finish for our U6’s for the year with a football blitz in Mullinahone. Thanks to all the parents for their support over the year and for all their refreshments last Sunday. Thanks  to Fethard, Clonmel Og and Rockwell Rovers for travelling and to Sean O’Meara, Josephine Britton and Brian O’Meara and all the players for their efforts during the year.


The U12 hurlers drew with Kilsheelan and lost to Cahir in recent games. Next game versus Ballingarry is the final one of the year.  Thanks to players, management and parents for all during a long year.


The U16 hurlers lost narrowly to St. Marys in the South Tipp U16A hurling semi-final.  Missing a few key players on the night due to injuries the side put in a spirited effort. A speedy recovery from recent injuries to Enda Keane and Baylea Grace. The side  now take part in the U16 shield.

The Juvenile Club are holding a Guess the Score competition on the All Ireland hurling replay on Saturday next. Each entry costs €2. Cards can be returned on Friday evening 26th September from 7pm to 8pm in the Sportsfield to club chairman, Victor Direen or left into Hickey’s Shop before 8pm on Friday evening.

"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."


poet. C.J. Boland
