Dick Seeks Office

E-mail Print PDF
Since he first began to play for the parish in the late 1950's, early 1960's, Dick Egan had been a loyal member of the Mullinahone football and hurling club. A fine footballer, Dick graduated to play for Tipperary and was still around in 1985 when Mullinahone won a south Tipperary junior hurling title.

Dick became an administrator and was one of the men who directed operations as Mullinahone rose to prominence in the early 1990's. He looked after the less glamourous side (football) of things. In later years, he becme prominent in Bord na nOg circles and served as a very effective chairman of south Tipperary Bord na nOg. He has gone to be vice-chairman of south Tipperary senior board and is this year seeking to become the new chairman of the south Tipperary board.

In the one hundred and one years that the board has existed, no Mullinahone man has held this office. No doubt, all Mullinahone people everywhere would like to see Dick elected. He certainly has the experience and the pedigree.

Good luck Dick in your quest.

Under 21’s Complete South Double

E-mail Print PDF

For the third time in four years, Mullinahone are the south Tipperary under 21 b hurling champions. In Monroe on Sunday evening last, the side eventually proved too good for neighbours, the combination team St. Patrick’s Gaels.

This was a replay and once again, there was little to choose between the sided. Gaels started better than Mullinahone, but the locals hung in there and coming up to half time, the sides were level at four points each. Gaels put on two more points but before referee Paddy Ivors blew for the break Mullinahone had pulled back one of the points.

Gaels had been on top in the first half but the Mullinahone defence had got in a number of hooks and blocks to stop the Gaels pulling away.

During the first half, Gaels had had the advantage of the breeze. All in all, the game was evenly balanced and signs were that Mullinahone were finding their feet after a slow start. The Mullinahone line-out showed three changes from that which begun the previous final and semi-final.

Into the side came, Brian Treacy, Eddie Phelan and Richie Morrissey. All three added something to the side. Compared to the final Gael’s were not as prominent on the scoresheet. Gradually in the second half, Mullinahone began to control the game and got their noses in front. The goal that would have won the game for either side never came. With only minutes to go, Alan Walsh in the Mullinahone made a top class point blank save while at the other end, the Mullinahone forwards missed a number of chances to make the game safe

During the last quarter, Mullinahone always looked the more likely winners but their supporters were kept anxious until the final whistle. The new south Tipperary champions go forward to meet mid champions Boherlahan in the county semi-final, the weekend after next. This bunch of players began the year by winning the south Tipperary under 21 b football title and going on to win the county title.

If You Want to Know

Last year, 2007, we celebrated the centenary of south Tipperary GAA. Next year, 2009, we will celebrate the 125th anniversary of the foundation of the GAA in Hayes Hotel, Thurles in 1884.

Last year, a detailed history of the GAA and its clubs in south Tipperary for 1907 – 2007 was published. The book which contains nearly 800 pages is an absolute mine of information about south Tipperary and its clubs.

The author Michael O Meara was secretary of the south board for three decades and is now its honorary President. If anybody was qualified to write such a history, it was surely Michael. The book which is no both hardback and soft cover is available for as little as €30.

It would make an ideal Christmas present for any person who is interested in the GAA in Mullinahone or in south Tipperary. The history contains an excellent records section which should put an end to much of the bluffing which passes for fact in many GAA discussions.

For a worthwhile and informative Christmas or New Years present how about Michael O Meara’s “South Tipperary GAA 1907 – 2007” in any good bookshop.

"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."
