Parish Mega Clean Up

Our Tidy Towns committee organised a 10 day Parish Clean Up which started last weekend.  The idea is that people gather a group of their neighbours to clean up their own streets or roadways in their area.  The rubbish collected is to be left at a central point from where we hope it will be collected by the local authority both during and after the clean-up.  Once again we say, “Many hands make light work” and “ask not what your Tidy Towns is doing for you, but what are you doing for your Tidy Towns”.

GAA News

After a couple of recent good wins, our U12 footballers lost out to St. Pats in their final U12 game and as a result are out of the running.  We, of course, would like to know the names of all those who represented us in the U12 football campaign.  Our U14 footballers are currently on a good run and on Friday evening last they had a good win over Killenaule in Killenaule.  Again we would like to know who our U14 footballers are.  At adult level, our senior hurlers are busy preparing for next Sunday’s clash with Ballingarry which takes place in Clonmel.  A win over our neighbours would set us up nicely for our final game, but a loss would severely hinder our prospects in the remainder of the county championship.  We hardly need reminding that over the years since 1992 Ballingarry have spoiled our chances more often than any other club.   We would like to see a much increased number of our supporters turning out for the game in Clonmel.  On the county front, we were pleased to see Paul Curran lining out for Tipp’s League semi-final with Waterford, but we were disappointed to see Tipp go down by a point in Kilkenny.  The best GAA result of the weekend was Tipps U21 football win over Dublin to qualify for the All-Ireland final against Tyrone.  Sadly, we didn’t have anybody in that panel, but we congratulate the Tipp team and especially the two Mahers, Bill and Paul, sons of former Mullinahone and Tipperary footballer, Ollie Maher.
