G.A.A: Pride of place this week goes to Bill Maher who captained the Tipperary Minor Hurlers to Munster Final success last Sunday. He played a captain’s part and everyone in the Club are very proud of him as he collected a Munster medal in both hurling and football on successive Sundays. He received a hero’s welcome, together with the team, in the sportsfield on Sunday night when he brought the Cup back from Pairc Ui Chaoimh. This is a first for the Club and we hope it will inspire all our young players for the future. There was a wonderful turnout despite the inclement weather. The Golden Goal in the Tipperary V Waterford game was in the 10th minute. Next week the competition will be based on the Leinster Football Final when Meath and Dublin lock horns. Our Minor hurlers will be action this Wednesday evening in Fethard when they take on St Mary’s while the Minor Footballers will take on Commercials in the South Final on Friday night in Monroe. These young players need your encouragement so why not come along and lend your vocal support.

KILSHEELAN TIDY TOWNS: A big thanks to everyone who diligently turn out every Monday for an hour weeding and tidying the open spaces. It is a wonderful sight to see colourful flowers wherever you turn and also all the new planters that have appeared around the village. Residents in all the estates have worked really hard and villagers and visitors alike have commented how lovely Kilsheelan always looks. Final judging is due in the next week or so and we are asking all residents to go that extra mile and do that extra bit of weeding and extra bit of tidying up before the judges descend upon us. Already we can see the huge effort that has gone into making Kilsheelan so attractive - the river bank is free of overhanging branches, the Motte and grassy areas are neatly trimmed, houses and fences have been painted, more bird boxes have been added to the wooded area along the river, signs depicting the birds, otters, bats, wild flowers have been erected. Tobairgeal woodland now attracts visitors to sit on the new stone seat and listen to the water gurgling over the stones from the rebuilt well - so much has been done and everyone should be proud of themselves. To keep this momentum we are asking everyone to spare an hour between 7 and 8.30pm on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th July, to put the final touches to the village before the final judging takes place. Meet in the car park, bring gloves and brushes and let’s do ourselves proud. For more info call 0872705671.

Busiest man of the afternoon was Mark O’Brien Ballypatrick FC goalkeeper, only four goal scorers managed to reach the play off stage of the penalty shoot out. The eventual winner was Benny Lyons Ballypatrick. His wife Elaine was the winner of the Hotel voucher sponsored by FBD.

Many teddy bears were on show to compete for the best dressed teddy bear awards which went to Hazel O’Reilly and Annie Hughes.

Other winners in the guessing competitions were Gerry Walsh Ballypatrick - the number of blocks in the trailer. Joan Coady Kilcash - the value of the Marks & Spencer Hamper. Fiona O’Reilly Ballypatrick - the weight of the cake. Alex Hogan Ballypatrick – the number of sweets in the jar.
