Parish Clean-up

The Parish Clean-up Blitz organised by the Tidy Towns Committee moved up  gear during the last week. Parish workers were seen out on the approach roads leading into the village gathering up rubbish and litter from the roadsides.  Some well- known local blackspots were also cleaned up. The appearance of An Taisce litter bags along the roadsides in groups of 3/4 were the result of our clean-up. These bags were collected by the local authority workers and removed as was the pile of rubbish collected centrally in the GAA carpark. Our thanks to the community workers and also to any private individuals who lent a hand.

Now that the parish has been cleaned up, at least to some extent, it is up to the public to keep it that way and even improve it. We can do this by making sure that outside our own properties is kept free of rubbish and litter and that all those who toss away litter are noted and reported. After all, these careless individuals are not littering or tossing away rubbish outside their own properties.

Local Lotto Jackpot

The last local lotto jackpot draw took place on Monday 27th April.  The numbers drawn were 24,27,28 and 30.  We had no jackpot winner, but five shared the Match 3 prize of €150. Congrats to Evan and Baylea, Willie Walsh, Dara Scott, Bill Coady and Martin Brennan. The next draw will take place on Monday night next May 11th when the jackpot could be worth €11,950.  This is a prize certainly well worth winning.

GAA Update Briefs

Well done to our U14 footballers who defeated Kilsheelan 2-08 to 3-04 in Mullinahone during the week. Two big games coming up for our senior hurlers. Saturday next at 7pm in New Inn, Mullinahone v Boherlahan in the county championship league section. Saturday 16th May at 7pm in Monroe, Mullinahone v Carrick Swan in the South championship. Your support would be appreciated.

Schoolboy Soccer

Our U13 schoolboys who have just won the Tipperary South U13 league travel to Clonmel on Saturday 9th May at 11am with a chance to complete the double by winning the Cup against St. Kevins. On the same day, the Mullinahone U15’s play Clonmel Celtic in the U15 Cup Final at 1pm. We wish both teams well and all support will be welcome for the teams. Mullinahone schoolboys soccer would also like to thank everyone that supported their recent table quiz. Without this support, it is unlikely that we would be in the position of celebrating recent successes and continuing to grow Schoolboys soccer in the Mullinahone area.




"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."
