Work continues - Work on the G.A.A. history is continuing but progress is slow. Help in the form of photos, items of information, or stories of the past would be most welcome by the committee. The period 1936-1960 is currently being reviewed.
Parish News - May devotions continue in St. Michael’s Church each Sunday evening at 7pm during May. Rosary at the Callan Rd. Grotto at 7.15pm each week evening also during May. First Communion at a special children’s Mass in St. Michaels at 11am on this Saturday morning, May 18th.
The death took place during last week of Michael Gahan of Fethard Street. Condolences to his wife Chrissie and also to Collette O’Domhnaill, Ballycullen and to Angela and Jimmy Clutterbuck, Mohober on deaths in their families. Months Mind Mass for Dolores Gardiner on this Saturday night, May 18th at 8pm. Adoration continues in St. Michaels each Thursday, 11am to 10pm.
Tidy Towns - The Tidy Towns committee would like to thank Mullinahone Bridge Club who recently ran a successful fund raiser in support of tidy towns. This support was much appreciated.
We would also like to thank all who took part in the recent clean-up which extended to the whole parish.
Schools continue to do great work in this area. Thanks also to the local G.A.A. club who facilitated the clean-up collection etc.
Tidy towns application will be submitted by May 23rd, so now is the time to paint and to plant. Everybody can do a little to brighten up our village.
Community Park - The new Community Park on the Ballingarry road is virtually complete. All that remains now is to dot a few i’s and cross a few t’s. The new Community Park is a credit to all concerned and will be a great amenity to the whole community.
Not so good - The recent turnout and display of our senior football team was disappointing. It was not the way many old supporters would have liked to remember the 100th Anniversary of us retaining the County senior football title of 1913.
For the record on Friday night we lost to Kilsheelan 1-14 to 0-05. On the hurling front the weekend result between Killenaule and Davins means that we must beat or draw with Davins when we meet them to reach the South semi-final.
