REMOVAL OF STREET BOLLARDS
Residents in town are shocked to see the County Council removed five bollards on Main Street which were erected to help free flow of traffic through the street which proved very successful but the problem is back again. Time for local town development to take an interest.

KILLENAULE GAA BORD NA n-OG NOTES
Under 14s: Our Under 14s played their first football match of the championship on Monday night, against Carrick Swan. The Carrick boys were victorious on this occasion, but we should learn plenty from this match. Michael Gaynor was superb in goal. The defense put in a trojan effort with big hearted displays from Harry Tobin, Tom Stakelum and Matthew Walsh. Paudie Feehan, Cillian O’Dwyer and Liam Meagher worked hard all night, but our lack of effort on the training pitch cost us dear. Despite hard work, on the night, from the forwards, our final touch let us down, and too many scoring opportunities were squandered. The coaching team will be anxious to remedy this and get back to winning ways as soon as possible.
The following night, Tuesday, the U14 hurlers gave a battling display against a very strong St Mary’s team, in the Féile, in Clerihan. Considering it was their first hurling match of the year, they accredited themselves very well, losing out on a scoreline of 2-9 to 1-3. There were good performances from Jack Gleeson, Tom Stakelum, Gus Browne, Eoin Barry and Pat Doyle. Keep up the good work lads.
Under 12s: Killenaule under 12s are back with a bang at training, with matches coming thick and fast also. Our first outing was against Clonmel Commercials on Friday, April 1. Good displays by Kevin Lawlor, David McCormack and Jack Hayes. Our newcomers played extremely well also. Padraig Harrington, Tom Richardson and Colin Gahan showed some neat touches, and are surely one to watch in the future. We played Cahir last Friday night in Cahir. We had to rely on one of our under 10s to line out for us at corner forward, and that man was David Hayes. Highlight of the night was a score by Padraig Harrington, who scored a point from an acute angle that our inter county footballers would of been proud of. Luke Nolan worked his socks off at full forward, while Gavin Ryan and Danny Gleeson guarded our defence all evening long. Ciaran O’Dwyer, Andrew O’Connell and Mark Heffernan covered a lot of ground around the middle of the field. Training is on every Wednesday night at 6.30pm.
