Player of the Week
This weeks award goes to Mark Heffernan who excelled during the week for our U/10's
Congrats to James Feehan who was selected for the county U/14 hurling team for a tournament in Waterford. Jimmy is a very dedicated clubman and his selection is richly deserved.
Bothar na Smaointhe
This week we look back to 1976, when Killenaule were in a bit of a slump. We were playing Intermediate and were struggling. we were knocked out of the championship in the first round by Newcastle. We hadn't won anything of significance at juvenile or minor level for quite some time, so it came as quite a shock when we qualified for the U21 South hurling final. In that final we caused a major shock when we beat the stong favourites Carrick Swan. Whan the captain Donie McGettigan lifted that cup it was to signal the end of the bad times. The bulk of that team went on to form the backbone of our intermediate team that was to dominate the division for the next decade and ultimatly lead us back to the promised land in 1988 when we annexed the senior title after a lapse of 25 years.
The stars of that day in 1976 were Padraig Mullins In Goal, John Murphy, Christy Healy, Michael Gleeson, Anthony Dwyer, Donie McGettigan, Jimmy Kirby, Donie Connell and Michael Hassett.
Blast From The Past
This week's "Blast" comes from the U/21 team of 1976. Killenaule had always been associated with teak-tough hardhitting defenders and they didn't come much tougher or harder than John (Spud) Murphy. If you were to get a score off him you would have earned it. John went on to captain an U/21 winning team but unfortunatley the honour of collecting the cup was denied him as we received a walkover. John is still a great supporter of the club and his three sons have played for us as well. Few people will know this but John actually played in an international soccer match when a visiting Irish team took on and beat a Belgian selection. Take a bow John.
Nomination papers for our All-STAR hurling and football teams of the last 25yrs (1984-2009) are available now. You just nominate a player for every position in hurling and football and the teams will be selected from the top three nominations for each position. It will cost E3 per team or you can nominate the two teams for E5. The presentation of ALL-STARS will take place in December. So thats a date to keep in mind.
Best of Luck
To Declan, Festy and Gerry as they fly the Killenaule flag in Croker on Sunday. So let's get the town decorated in blue and gold and in red and yellow.
The answer to last weeks question was Paddy (Pat) Croke R.I.P who played full-forward for Dublin in the 1961 All Ireland final.
This week's Question. He played senior hurling for Killenaule and also played in a county final with Killenaule. He also captained Tipperary in a Munster senior hurling final, who is he?
Congratulations to the Minor footballers on capturing the south minor B championship last Sunday evening. They had a one point victory over Knockmealdown Gaels which was played in Ardfinnan. The final score was 3-07 to 0-15 to Killenaule. We are very proud of the team who brought back the first bit of silverware to the club for 2009. Well done to all!
We all remember Donie O' Connell bringing back All Irelands medals to Killenaule in the 1989 and 1991 All Ireland finals. Well this Sunday we have three more representatives on the Tipp team that will battle it out with the cats in Croke Park. Declan Fanning, Pat ''Festy'' Kerwick and Gerry Kennedy are all only 70 minutes away from winning an All Ireland medal with Tipp and these players much deserve that prize as they have given such great service to the game of hurling. Each one of these three players has been hugely important to Killenaule GAA club over the years and it is absolutely fantastic to see them take to the Croke Park field on All Ireland final day. We would like to wish each of them the very best of luck on Sunday and hopefully the McCarthy Cup will be brought home to the Premier County for the 26th time.
