Minor Hurlers Battle Through

Back in the Summer which now seems ages ago, our minor hurlers took on St. Patricks Gaels in the championship.Our lads did well that evening and were well in front when the game came to an end through no fault of ours.  In the end, it was decided that the game would have to be replayed which seemed very unfair on our lads. Although Ballingarry were nominated to represent South Tipp in the county championship, the south championship remained to be played. On Saturday last the game against St. Patricks/Fethard was again played. This time the Gaels were able to field a much stronger team than in the Summer.

At half time on Saturday the whole championship set up seemed even more unfair as our lads were led by 2-04 to 0-02 in terrible weather conditions. As stated, the Gaels team had been much strengthened since the first evening and this seemed to be telling, but the Kickhams fought back in the second half. With a number of the team showing very good hurling skill against the stronger Gaels, it was the determination and spirit of the Kickhams which allowed them to win the second half 1-07 to 0-01 and victory by 1-09 to 2-05. They even survived a final free to the Gaels, from which the Gaels had to go for a goal to keep their hopes alive. Kickhams now advance as the Gaels go out and hopefully, team spirit will see them reach the final and maybe even win the title.

Gun Club

Mullinahone Gun Club would like to thank landowners for use of their lands during the shooting season. All local members are insured by NARGC Compensation Fund and the Personal Accident Scheme. Each member is asked to have his/her NARGC membership card with them while out shooting and be able to produce it to land owners  if requested. Safe shooting to all.

Intermediate Footballers Win

In the second game played in Ned Hall Park on Saturday afternoon in dreadful weather, Mullinahone surprised many by reigniting their championship hopes with a one point win over Ballylooby. Further progress now depends on a midweek fixture against Clonmel Commercials. A win against Commercials would definitely see Mullinahone through to a semi-final place. The fifteen who lined out in dreadful conditions deserve everyone’s thanks. The team was Michael Lonergan, Kyran Vaughan, Martin Costello, Niall Mullally, Luke Mullally, Niall Curran, David Walzer, Paul Curran, Kevin Walzer, Cathal Horan, Alan Curran, Sean Walzer, Graham Horan, Joe O’Meara and Richie Neary. A quick count shows that 6 of the 15 began the recent senior hurling semi-final against Loughmore. An interesting stat is that 4 families contributed 10 players to Saturday’s team. The 4 families were, the Currans (3) Walzers (3) Mullallys (2) and Horans(2)

Be Safe, Be Seen

Winter has definitely arrived and anybody walking the roads for any reason should be wearing a high visibility jacket. “ Be safe, be seen” is the message for everyone. Walkers may not realise that unless they wear such a jacket, they may not be seen, even by careful motorists.
