The Semi Finals and Finals were played off in ideal conditions and results were as follows: “A” Section: Rose Holohan and Noel Murphy beat Pat Horan and Richard Murphy in an absorbing final where the “B” Section final saw sibling rivalry when Maggie Cody and Barry Cronin overcame Damien Cronin and Pat Parle. In an all ladies clash in the “C” Section Ann Walsh and Kerry Mc Elligott got the better of Mary Mc Mc Elligott and Eadaoin Brennan in their final.
A great day’s tennis and a pleasant club day was brought to a close by the presentation of prizes and the welcome cuppa. Vice President Cathal Boland in presenting the prizes thanked the outgoing and incoming tennis captains Rose Holohan and Johnny Purcell respectively and indeed all who helped to make the Tournament so successful. He concluded by wishing all a pleasant and successful tennis season ahead and hoped to see full activity on the courts as the summer approaches.

Congratulations to Clonmel High School on a magnificent victory over Nenagh CBS in the Fitzgerald Cup in U/17 Hurling in Thurles last week on a scoreline of 0-15 to 0-8. Nenagh CBS, after their great win in the All Ireland Senior Hurling Final had alot of those players involved with this side. Undeterred, Clonmel were far too strong for them and proved that they would not be lost in the big league of College Hurling teams. This was Clonmel’s first ever win in this competition so very well done. The Club was represented by Kevin Guiry, Eoin Kehoe, Tadgh Lonergan and Sean Ryan. Paul Maher missed the game through injury.
Hard luck on Eoin Kehoe who was unable to play for Tipperary, through injury, in the U/17 Hurling Tournament against Kerry last weekend.
Well done and best of luck to Mark Stokes who made the panel for the Tipperary Primary Schools team in hurling.
It is good to see work starting on the sportsfield with the removal of the ash plantation and the reseeding of the area. It is hoped this will be done in the next two weeks. We hope to have an evening for all volunteers to help out in raking and picking the stones, so that all teams, young and old, will be able to train there without damaging the main pitch.
We offer our condolences to Mick Quinn on the death of his sister recently.
KPLAN COMMUNITY CENTRE
The committee would like to most sincerely thank all of the volunteers who assisted at the bag packing in Dunnes Stores, Oakville, Clonmel last weekend. A big thank you to the public for their financial support and to all at Dunnes who very kindly facilitated us. Over €E1,000 was raised in the venture.
Both adult and youth guitar lessons are available at the Centre on Tuesday evenings from 7 to 8pm under expert tuition.
Monday, June 4th. Thank you to all of the eager ladies who are supporting our latest fundraiser i.e. the Fun Run in Moyne on Bank Holiday June 4. Twenty ladies have now signed up for walking/running the 10Km course. Meanwhile, the KPLAN committee hope to knock on all doors in the parish requesting your financial support for this venture over the coming weeks, all funds raised will be used for continued development of the Centre. Many thanks to Noel and staff at Fieldmaster who very kindly sponsored the cards.
SYMPATHY: Sincere sympathy is expressed to our former parish priest, Monsignor Olden on the sudden passing of his brother recently. We also wish to express our sympathy to Michael and Anna Dunne on the passing of Michael’s dad Nicholas. Nicholas grew up in Mullinahone and lived a wonderful contented life with his wife Mary Thompson, who predeceased him a few years ago in Churchtown, Carrick-on-Suir. He was always such a naturally powerful strong man who would be a certain on any Tug-of-war team. Nicholas was a pure caring gentleman who loved meeting people and as a neighbour, one could not meet better. His presence will be sorely missed. We extend sympathy to all of the Dunne and associated families.
