GAA Briefs

Our Juvenile hurlers who started the championship so well were brought back down to earth with a couple of results during the week. On Thursday, our U14’s travelled to Carrick and suffered heavily at the hands of Swan. On Sunday in Mullinahone, our U12’s were surprised and went down to Kilsheelan by 4-09 to 2-05.

C.J. Kickhams Club had an enjoyable club night and quiz in T.J. Macs on Friday night last. The night also involved the sale of local GAA memorabilia and was organised by Johnny Kennedy.

Another fine poem from the pen of Joe Tobin. This time it is a tribute to the late Jimmy Doyle.

In senior hurling, the South Tipp semi-final, Killenaule v Mullinahone was postponed until after the Munster SH final v Waterford. The Ballingarry v Swan game went ahead with victory going to a much improved Ballingarry team who now await the losers of the Killenaule and Mullinahone game in the second semi-final.

Thai Boxing

Four local girls and boys took part in the Irish Thai Boxing Championships on June 20th in Dublin. Hannah O’Connell was first up and won her division to become Irish Champion. Sasha Hehir was next in action in the 45 kg final, but lost on points after a close contest.  Bonnie Hehir at 33kg won out her division. Last in action was Che Delaney Scott, who fought twice on the day and became Irish Champion at 37kg for the second year running. We hope to be able to record many more successes in the future.
