PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Congratulations to young Darragh O’Leary, Knockballiniry, who was recently awarded the U13 Player of the Year Award at Cahir Park AFC. Darragh was also part of the team that won the Tipperary Cup and finished in the last 16 in Ireland in the Troy Cup, the national competition for U13s.
It is extremely disappointing to see that there is continued dumping of household rubbish in the vicinity of the bottle banks in Goatenbridge. It is also very disappointing to see the ongoing dumping of rubbish at the new duck pond development at Kildanogue. Great credit is due to the ABGN Gun Club for providing this valuable amenity in the locality, but it is heartbreaking to see loads of rubbish continually been dumped in its vicinity.
