Weather is Changeable

September ended with only 6.5mm of rainfall durinf the entire month making it the driest month of 2014 so far and the driest month locally since August 1995 and the driest September since 1986. This, of course, was the September after Hurricane Charlie had visited in August 1986. Three days after September ended, 30.7mm of rain poured down making it the wettest day of the year so far and also the wettest since 2nd June 2012.

Wonderful Days

It is planned to hold a function at Halloween to remember our county winning teams of 1988 and 1999. Without those teams, we could never have had the success that we have enjoyed since.  We should also remember the mentors of those teams. For those who have forgotten the mentors were 1988 U21F Jerry Brett, Ollie Vaughan and Albert Curran. U21H Seamie O’Connor, Jamsie Kelly and Jackie Bolger. 1989 Junior hurling  Jimsy Kelly, Seamie O’Connor and Dick Egan. U21 Hurling, J. Bolger, John McCormack and Jimsy Kelly.  In 1990, our Junior County champions of 1989 won the first ever St. Judes 7’s All-Ireland championship. The panel was Liam O’Connor, Martin Kennedy, Michael Skehan, Jerry Bolger, John McCormack, Sean Brett, John Leahy, Noel Leahy, Ollie Maher, Brian O’Meara and Albert Curran.

Tidy Villages

In spite of major upheavals in the village during the summer due to water repairs, or marks in the Tidy Towns went up from 268  in 2013 to 271 in 2014.  This is a third year in a row that our marks have increased. With roadworks in the village completed next year should be much better.  More help is needed by the Tidy Towns committee to bring this about. Plans for next year should be made soon.

A Cycle for Seniors

On the morning of the All-Ireland hurling replay, two locals Seanie Foxe and Ky Vaughan cycled the 140km to Dublin to raise funds for the local senior citizens club.  €710 was raised. Well done lads. Ky and Seanie would like to thank everyone for their support and donations.

Local Lotto

The local lotto jackpot draw took place on Monday 29th September. The numbers drawn were 9,15,17 and 19. There was no jackpot winner, but we did have one match 3 winner. Congrats to Carole and Jamie who won €150. Next draw will be on Monday 13th October when the jackpot could be worth €7,600. If you want to win, do be in.

12th South Tipp SH Title

Well done to our senior hurlers.  In Conmel on Sunday, they overcame hot favourites Killenaule to win the South Tipp SH title for the 12th time since the club first played senior hurling in 1992. The final score was 2.11 to 2.08, but with little more than 5 minutes left, we seemed to be comfortably in front, but 2 quick Killenaule goals gave us a late scare.  Well done to the lads who now advance into the county championship as South Tipp winners. They will be out again next weekend or the week after. Our juniors went down in the final to Killenaule, but reaching the final was a good achievement especially  by some of the young players, some of whom might be on the verge of stepping up to senior status. Well done to managers Seanie Foxe and Willie Coogan and to the panel who played. The lineout was as follows: Alan Walsh, Kevin Walzer, Paul Curran, Philip O’Shea, Niall Curran, Eoin Fennelly, Alan Curran, Gary Cronin, Kevin Bolger, Jack Shelly, Sean Curran, Luke Mullally, Eoin Kelly, Micheal Dunne and Cathal Horan. Subs used:  Donal Cody and Niall Cronin.
