Sad Weekend for Tipp in Croke Park

The replay of the All-Ireland Hurling final was generally a sad occasion for Tipperary supporters.  However, for 2 locals, it was a day to remember. The two, Eoghan O’Brien of Ballydavid and Joanne Hickey of Kickham Street, both played in Croke Park during half time in the All-Ireland final replay.  In fact, they were the only two Mullinahone people who got the chance to play as Eamon O’Shea didn’t call on the services of either Eoin Kelly or Paul Curran. The two who represented us were Eoghan O’Brien, son of  Terry  and Trish O’Brien, Ballydavid and a pupil of Kilvemnon N. S. and Joanne Hickey, daughter of Eddie and Frances Hickey of Kickham Street and a pupil of St. Michael’s National School, Mullinahone. We trust that both Eoghan and Joanne enjoyed themselves in spite of the result of the big game.  Saturday is a memory that both should treasure for a long long time. As for Eoin and Paul, hopefully, they will both come out next weekend in the South senior hurling final determined to show to all that, maybe, they could have made a difference.

Do You Remember?

Do you remember the glorious Autumns and Winters of 1988 and 1989 when Mullinahone won their first county adult hurling title winning an under 21B, Football and Hurling Double in 1988 and a county junior A hurling and Under 21A hurling double in 1989, as well as reaching the County Intermediate Football final. To check out the panels of players involved, search the Mullinahone GAA history and revive the memories of those trips to mostly Holycross. A reunion of players and supporters has been arranged to take place in the Park Hotel, Clonmel on Saturday 1st November. How quickly 25/26 years have passed.

"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."
