U-16 West Football Championship Semi Final.

An exciting game of football was played between the Sean Treacys/Emly combination and Clonoulty in the west semi final played in Tipp town on Thursday last. The combo playing against a strong but diagonal wind in the first half had plenty of possession, at the end of the first quarter we led by 3 points to 2. Then we were awarded a penalty which hit an upright and was cleared. This seemed to change the pattern for the rest of the half as Clonoulty took over the scoring, leaving the half time score 1-06 to 0-04 in favour of the opposition. The combo started the second half without the injured Thomas Lyons. We scored a point in the third minute and a minute later a long range shot from Darragh Kennedy found the net. Another goal was scored by the combo five minutes later. The game was finally balanced now but the half back line and midfield for the combo were starting to launch waves of attacks, but a lot of wides were kicked. Another goal for the combo was disallowed for a square ball decision. But the points were being added the whole time and the team kept Clonoulty scoreless for the second half. Final Score Sean Treacys/Emly 2-10 Clonoulty 1-06.

Community Games 2011

Well done and thanks to all who competed and helped out on the day.

Now the hard work starts as we help athletes to choose events and then approach people who came third and fourth etc as appropriate as we can send two competitors per event. Each athlete can only compete in one event plus a relay.

HOLLYFORD TIDY TOWNS

We have entered the National Tidy Towns Competition this year. Judging commences in June. We would be grateful for your support in maintaining the general good appearance of your home or business premises. These are areas that need attention and with your help we can rectify this in the coming months.

Rubbish is still a major problem in the area. The Multeen river and the bottle bank have become dumping grounds for rubbish. Public bins are not for Household Rubbish. South Tipperary County Council have been made aware of this problem and are monitoring the situation.

We are extremely grateful for your support of the Bilboa Lotto.

This is our only source of funding and without this, no improvements or painting would be possible. Recently John Ryan, Piperhill won €100 in the Lotto.

Thank you for your co-operation.
