Ballingarry were celebrating Community Games gold following the success of their skittles team at the national finals in Athlone.

It was the only gold for Tipperary on the first weekend of the national finals but they were smiling in the Slieveardagh village at the wonderful skittles success.

However there was disappointment that no gymnastic medals came to the county.

See report and photographs in The Nationalist on Wednesday.
