The death occurred in South Tipperary General Hospital, Clonmel on April 21, of Mary Ryan, after a short illness. Mary who lived in Galtee View for a number of years, was formerly from Skeheen, Mitchelstown and also Kilnamona, Ballyporeen. Mary was a gentle soul and loved to meet the people and enjoy a chat. She was a member of the Community Council for a number of years and also the local guild of the I.C.A. She was a loving wife to Maurice, who predeceased her two years ago, and loving mother and grandmother, and as Fr. Joseph Flynn said at Mary’s funeral Mass, she always had an open house, and everyone was welcome, she will be dearly missed by all her neighbours in Galtee View,
Mary’s removal took place from O’Sullivan’s Funeral Home, Kilbehenny on Saturday evening last to the Church of the Assumption, Ballyporeen and after Requiem Mass on Sunday, Mary was laid to rest with her husband Maurice in St. Mary’s Cemetery. May her gentle soul rest in peace.
We offer our deepest sympathies to her daughter Liz, her sons, John, Mike, Willie, Moss and Pat, step-daughter Mary, son-in-law Ollie, daughters in law, Marie, Mar, Ka and Margo, grandchildren, sisters, Madge, Lena and Biddy, sisters in law, brother in law, relatives, neighbours and friends.
BALLYPOREEN HANDBALL CLUB - “ALL-IRELAND WIN FOR JASON CAHILL”
One of the Club’s top young handballers, Jason Cahill, won his first All-Ireland title last weekend in Kingscourt, Co. Cavan.
Before a packed attendance which included a bus from the Club. The Club had three young handballers in All-Ireland action with Jason CAhill winning the All-Ireland title and Adrian and Jason English losing out in the All-Ireland final.
Jason Cahill was part of the Tipperary Under 16 and Under 17 team that had a convincing win over Sligo in the Semi-final and then over Tyrone in the final to retain the title that Tipperary won last year. Jason was part of the Tipperary team that included Steven Moroney (Carrick on Suir), Marcus Troy and Jack Jones (Newport) and they proved to be a very strong side.
In the semi-final, they easily beat Sligo, with young Jason in fine form, they had a runaway win to reach the final. In the final, they met a strong Tyrone side but again the Tipperary side were in top form with Jason one of the stars, they ran out comfortable winners to lift the All-Ireland title.
Jason had a great year, when they won the Munster title with wins over Clare and Limerick and now he ads his All-Ireland to an excellent campaign.
Well done to Jason who has given great service and commitment to the game and he has now won his All-Ireland to add to all his other honours in the game.
“ADRIAN AND JASON LOSE OUT”
Adrian and Jason English were part of the Tipperary Under 12 and Under 13 team that were most unlucky to lose out to Tyrone in a thrilling All-Ireland final.
The Tipperary team which include Adrian, Jason, Daniel Ryan (Silvermines), Colm Ryan (Cashel), Aidan Flaherty (Youghalarra) and Jerome Cahill (Lahorna) had a thrilling win over Galway in the semi-final with both Adrian and Jason turning in fine performances.
In the All-Ireland final, they met Tyrone in what turned out to be a brilliant final. Tyrone edged home 67 aces to 61 aces. The Tipperary lads turned in a great show and can be proud of a great campaign with wins over Clare and Limerick to win the Munster Title and then a great showing in the All-Ireland series to just lose out by a mere 5 aces.
Well done to Jason and Adrian on their great performances.
Also thanks to all the supporters who travelled to the finals. It was a great day for the Club. Thanks to Tim Mackey for his bus trip.
