South Tipp U13 Soccer Champions

Last weekend saw Mullinahone schoolboys crowned South Tipperary U13 champions for the 2014/2015 season with a game to spare. Having played 11 of their 12 games Mullinahone had won nine  and drawn two of these games, so they now have an unassailable lead in the league over their closest challengers, Burncourt/Vee Rovers whom they play in their final game. The team have also qualified for the Cup Final  against St. Kevins. They now have a chance to complete the double. The team is sponsored by Crocanóir. Many of the players were also members of the Mullinahone N.S. team which got to the county schools finals playoff during the week.  The clubs U15 team sponsored by Lonergans Gala have also qualified for their Cup final against Clonmel Celtic. The lads were a goal down with only five minutes to go in the semi-final, but equalised to send the game to extra time which brought no further score. In the penalty shoot out, Mullinahone won by 3-1. We wish both sides well in their finals. The successes of the schoolboys are a good omen for the reformed junior club which hasn’t been active for quite a number of years.

A Welcome Win

After their fine win over Toomevara in their first game, Mullinahone lined out against great rivals, Ballingarry, in their second game in the hurling championship in Clonmel on Sunday evening. The result was a 3-15 to 0-07 win for Mullinahone. Our lads began slowly, but improved as the game went on and were well on top during the second half. Once again, even after their good opening win against Toome, the turnout of local supporters was on the small side. It now looks as if Mullinahone will win out their section and advance in the championship. Their remaining game in the section will be against Boherlahan. Well done to the lads and to their management team. Best of luck to the Tipp U21 footballers who will play Tyrone in Dublin in the All Ireland final on We encourage our supporters to travel.

"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."
