Under 21s Are Out

After a host of ifs, buts and maybes, Mullinahone are out of the South Tipp U21A Hurling Championship.  On Sunday in Cloneen, we drew with Ballingarry 0-07 each, but we needed to win by at least 7 points. When we led by four points at the three-quarter stage, it looked possible, but it was not to be.We didn’t score again while Ballingarry scored four points to draw the game. The damage was done in Mullinahone when Kilsheelan beat us. Perhaps, the one good thing to emerge from the game was the return after injury of Denis Connolly after two years on the sideline. It was a pity that our U21 hurlers didn’t get to play a game until Winter had arrived. So much for hurling being a Summer game.

Community Council

The Council would like to thank all who contributed to a lovely celebration for Sheila Foley and Mick Larkin’s retirement party, in particular Fr. McGrath,the Parish Choir and all who helped with the catering.

The community enjoyed a lovely gathering in the village last Sunday evening for the lighting of our Christmas tree.Thank to Paul and Tracey Curran who donated the tree and to the Choir and John Willie who entertained all. Our thanks to Jackie Bolger who put the 3,000 lights on the tree and to Eddie O’Meara MCC who officially turned on those lights.

Thanks to Sharon Scott and Community Council members who contributed to the cost. The Council would like to thank you for all your support in 2014 and to wish you all a very Happy Christmas. We look forward to meeting many more of you at regular meetings in 2015.

Schoolboy Soccer

Mullinahone Schoolboy Soccer U15’s would like to thank Mr. Thos. Lonergan of Lonergans Gala in Mullinahone for sponsoring the teams new jerseys. As the young players have continued to develop and grow into young men,lately they have had to play in borrowed kits to enable them play their matches.

This new kit will befit their position as the second placed team in the U15 championship in South Tipperary with 12 points from five matches. At the halfway point in the season,the U13 team sponsored by Crocanóir is progressing even better than the U15’s and are top of the U13 championship with 16 points from six games played. This leaves them four points ahead of their nearest rivals Burncourt/Vee Rovers whom they defeated 3 -1 last week in Mullinahone.
