BOHERLAHAN DUALLA CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS
A large attendance gathered in Dundrum House last Saturday, November 17, to commemorate and celebrate 100 years of GAA in our parish. A fantastic night was had by all and everyone would agree that we certainly know how to have a good time. Special thanks to our guest speaker, Sean Kelly, along with the other dignitaries who attended. Our County Final winning Ladies Football team were presented with their medals. A lot of planning and organisation is involved in making any event a success and the committee are to be commended on a wonderful night. Many thanks to the capacity crowd who attended and also to anyone who supported the purchase of raffle tickets. SEAN GHAEL AWARD
Our congratulations to John O’Dwyer, Thurlesbeg, on receiving the Sean Ghael award last Sunday afternoon, as a recognition of a lifetime service to the GAA. John is one of our club’s great servants over the years. He comes from a family steeped in the GAA tradition. His father Tommy played with Ballytarsna, Suirview and Tubberadora in the early years of the Association and was elected President of the newly formed Boherlahan club in 1912, a position which reflected the esteem in which he and his family was held. John represented Boherlahan Dualla at senior level in the hurling in the 1950s and also wore the Blue and Gold of Tipperary in tournament games at that time. When his playing days were over, he continued to serve the club in different roles and passed on his love of the Association to his family.
Jackpot is currently E12,600. Tickets available from Ann Flanagan, Marie Ryan, O’Dwyer’s Shop, Boherlahan, Horse & Hound, Dualla, Seamus Crosse, Dualla, Lacey’s Bar, Martin O’Dwyer Butchers, Friar St, Cashel and at Boherlahan Bingo on Monday nights. E2 ticket.
Bingo continues every Monday night in Boherlahan. Prize money E1,700 nightly. Buses serving local surrounding areas. Proceeds go towards the upkeep of the hall, the GAA and Senior Citizens. DUALLA PARISH COUNCIL
As the hall is being hired out for evening classes, Dualla Parish Council request that any group using it would ensure that it is left as they found it, with chairs and tables put back to the walls, ready for the next engagement.
Will take place at the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Boherlahan, on Wednesday, March 20. It is hoped to plan a Preparation Mass before Christmas.
MASSES OF REMEMBRANCE
These Masses will be celebrated on Saturday, November 24, in Dualla at 6.30pm and on Sunday, November 25, at 11am in Boherlahan. YOUTH CLUB
