Mullinahone News November 10th

Mixed Weekend Results

The weekend brought mixed results for the local GAA club.  Our local U21 hurlers were first in the field on Sat. when they lined out against Kilsheelan. This game was re-arranged at a late stage for Mullinahone having been transferred from Cloneen. The transfer didn’t seem to help us and we lost out. We now face a make or break clash with Ballingarry in this championship, probably the coming weekend. Our intermediate footballers travelled to Ardfinnan on Sunday and surprised a lot of people with a good win over Ballylooby. This win ended a good week or eight days for our footballers.

We began with a very narrow win over Ballylooby.  We were then to play Clonmel Commercials in a playoff game during the week under lights in Newcastle, but they conceded and we were through to a quarter final. This brought us to last Sunday’s game in Ardfinnan again against Ballylooby. At half time the outlook was grim, but trainer Franny Kelly rang the changes and a greatly improved display in the second half saw us have a good win. We are now in the semi-final against Fr. Sheehys who defeated us narrowly in Killenaule earlier in the championship. Our minor hurlers are also still in the championship and should be out, maybe this coming weekend. While the county minor championship is over, the South Tipp minor title is still to be played for.
