A FITTING MEMORIAL TO AN HISTORIC EVENT


The long awaited unveiling of the Mullinahone GAA Memorial to its six Bloody Sunday heroes took place in the village on Sunday last. Preparations for this event began almost two years ago with the election of a memorial committee.


This was, of course,was interrupted by Covid. The local committee was headed by Dick Egan and consisted of a number of locals who had served the club as Chairmen and other officers over the last half century. Tony Nolan, the President of our club and the son of Mick Nolan who was the last of the six local players who took part on Bloody Sunday to remain living was the man who unveiled the memorial on Sunday in conjunction with Seamus McCarthy, the Chairman of the Tipperary 1920 Remembrance Committee. The plaque unveiled was produced by Molloys of Callan and was sponsored by the Brett Family, Mullinahone to whom our thanks are extended. The plaque was blessed by Fr. Danny O’Gorman, PP and was greatly admired by those who came to see the unveiling, both from Mullinahone and from outside the parish.

The plaque was erected in a special grotto at the entrance to our sportsfield. The grotto was designed and erected by Malachy Sheehan, a local stonemason. The local committee left no stone unturned to produce a memorial which should shape our club’s path for another one hundred years.

We thank all those who came to see the unveiling and who helped along the
way to produce such a fine memorial. We hope that this memorial, in our grounds will be admired for many many years.

ANOTHER GREAT WIN

Once again our U15 footballers came out on top in a very close game. Having got the better of Clonmel Comm. in the semi-final and then Moyle Rovers in the South final, it was off to Ballina on the banks of the Shannon for the new South champions to face the home side in the County semi-final. It was a long way to travel , but such was the luck of the draw. In the end, Mullinahone pulled out all the stops to score a one point win 2-08 to 3-04 over the home side. The win seems a little easier when we look at the total scores Mullinahone 10 scores (2-08) Ballina 7 scores (3-04). It was a very hard fought win nevertheless. Hopefully, we will get the luck of the draw the next time. In the final, we will face J.K. Brackens (Templemore) who defeated Arravale Rovers (Tipperary Town) 5-09 to 1-08 in Templemore in the other semi-final.

We wish our lads the very best of luck in the final. It has been an outstanding campaign for our team so far. Hopefully, they can stretch their winning run to one more game. Best of luck lads.
