Congratulations to Cathal Mahoney and Conor Clancy who won Munster under 15 medals with the Co. Tipperary footballers recently.

On the same weekend Joey Noonan was a member of the Co. Tipperary under 14 football team defeated in the Munster Final on penalties after a draw and extra time. Well done to all the lads with county teams.

Anybody who needs tickets for the All Ireland Minor Football Quarter against Mayo in Croke Park on this Saturday at 3pm should note that this will be an all ticket game. Similarly the Under 21 Munster Hurling final on Wednesday next in Ennis will be all ticket. Anybody who requires tickets for these games should contact Nicholas Moroney.

We extend the sympathy of St. Patricks GAA club to the Meagher family Lismoynan on the recent death of Billy Meagher RIP. Billy was one of the best footballers of his day but work commitments took him away at vital times. His grandson Robert Meagher is a prominent member of present day St. Patrick’s hurling and football teams while granddaughter Jenny had some great days in ladies football and continues her involvement in Australia at present. On arrival in Cloneen Billy’s funeral was met by a guard of honour of past and present players. Due to an oversight the St. Patricks flag was not on Billy’s coffin. We apologise for this error.
