DEATH OF JEROME KENNEDY
On Thursday, August 11, the death took place of Jerome Kennedy, Marshalstown at Acorn Lodge. He was son of the late Michael and Mary Kennedy and an esteemed member of the farming community. Jerome was 80 years of age and in failing health for some time. He spent a greater part of his life working the land both in his homestead with his brother Andy and family and in Ballybeg, Littleton. In latter years, he was also based in Cashel with his sister Nora Lonergan and her husband Ned. A man much beloved by his relatives and friends, he was a good conversationalist and took a keen interest in local and current affairs. On Friday, his remains were removed from the Kennedy residence, Marshalstown to Our Lady of Fatima Church, Dualla. On the following day after Requiem Mass celebrated by Fr. Peter Brennan CC Boherlahan, assisted by Fr. Joe Egan, PP Boherlahan, Fr. Christy Dwyer, Dean Cashel, Mr. Michael Kennedy PP New Inn, Fr. James Ryan AP Cashel and Fr. Jimmy O’Donnell CC Cashel, interment took place in the family burial ground in Ballsheehan Cemetery. The large attendance on both days bore testimony to the esteem to which Jerome and his family are held. He is survived by Andy and Willie (brothers), Nora Lonergan (sister), Hannah and Kathleen (sisters-in-law), Ned Longeran (brother-in-law), nephews, nieces, relatives and friends to whom sympathy is extended. May he Rest in Peace.
U12 MID FINAL WIN
Sunday, August 7, saw our second U12 panel play the Mid Final against Clonakenny in the U12 C ‘fun do’ hurling competition, which was played in Templemore. From the throw in it was a highly competitive match with great displays of hurling, determination and a will to win, resulting in Boherlahan Dualla victorious. All our players fought relentlessly which was the difference between them and Clonakenny, winning by a goal in the end. We had great displays from everyone with our backs handling intense pressure in the second half. Luke Kevin in goal had a stormer of a game and rescued us on several occasions. Our 3 girls on the panel Roisin Maher, Aoife Kavanagh and Casey Hennessy were more than capable of playing with the boys. Martin Paul O’Dwyer played a man’s game by marking their best player on the pitch. Well done and congrats to the entire group who did their club proud and to Stephen Walsh who as captain gave a lovely speech on receiving the cup. They are now through the county quarter final stage due to be played in Semple Stadium at the end of the month. Thanks to the great supporters that came to watch the game on an early Sunday morning and to the juvenile club who presented the players with new togs with the club crest on them.
Again we have three under 12 Teams entered in the Shield Competition with fixtures yet to be finalised.
