Following a great game the Minor Footballers had an impressive 3-7 to 0-14 victory over Moyle Rovers in the Semi Final in Cahir. They are now through to the Final where they will take on Commercials. The Junior hurlers will be action next Saturday when they take on Ballylooby in Goatenbridge. Killenaule will be our opponents in Fethard this Wednesday evening in the Junior “B” Football and the Minor hurlers begin their campaign with a game against Skehenarinky this Thursday evening. Congrats to Ann Robinson who won the first Golden Goal of the year. Last week the golden moment was the 46th in the Tipperary V Cork game. Next week’s competition will be based on the meeting of Meath and Kildare. Best of luck to Bill Maher who captains Tipperary minor hurlers next Wednesday evening when they take on Waterford in Semple Stadium. This is the first time a Kilsheelan player has had the honour of captaincy of a County team and we wish Bill and his team all the best. It was wonderful to see one of our young players namely Mark Stokes in action in the Primary Game last Sunday in Pairc Ui Chaoimh. Well done Mark.

We extend our sympathy to the Murphy and Coughlan families on their recent bereavements.


Our historical walk, with no rain in sight, was a most informative and sociable evening with upwards of 60 people taking part. There was much favourable comment afterwards as people enjoyed a welcome cuppa in the Hall. Thanks to Sharon, Terry and everyone who took part or helped in any way to make it such a success.


Kilsheelan is blooming once again. Locals and visitors alike are most complimentary and a big thank you is due to all involved. Ann and Tommy would especially like to thank all those extra hands who came out to help with the planting, also helping in the polytunnel potting and watering. The rain has saved the task of watering beds, but we would ask everyone to kindly be mindful, if there is a bed near your abode, to give the plants a drink in the dry weather. Thanks to those also, who take their walks with a plastic bag and pick up stray litter, such a great help. Tidy Towns are very grateful to sponsors Morris Oil, Kool Kuts, J Ryan accountants and others who prefer to be anonymous. Grateful thanks to Kevin Collins for his nature study and his recent fascinating presentation on that subject, which he gave in our local hall. Mario’s wooden planters are just perfect for adding a little cheer to concrete areas. Thanks also to Cyril for the bird boxes.


There was great excitement when Tipperary Hurling Captain Paul Curran arrived with our signed Tipp jersey on Wednesday, June 27. This jersey was won through Ryan Motor Power’s Facebook competition. The children performed their much loved songs and poems for family and friends before finishing up for the summer. We wish the five boys and five girls who graduated all the best in their new schools.

We will have a full house in September 2012. No further bookings are being taken. Anyone wishing to enrol for Sept 2013, 2014 & 2015 may contact Clare for an enrolment form.

The children went to Parsons Green on Tuesday 19th. They really enjoyed their school trip and were so well behaved. A big thank you to the parents who helped out on the day

I would like to thank the GAA for all their support and kindness shown to us over the year. I also want to thank all the parents for choosing Clare’s Montessori School and for my hardworking, reliable and dedicated staff: Helen and Tate.  I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable summer. Montessori School will re-open on Wednesday, August 29, at 9.10am.


A big thank you to everyone who took the trouble to bring scrap metal to the KPLAN community site in Kilsheelan last week. Half of the monies generated will be allocated to the scouting movement and the remainder will be divided between Kilcash, Killurney and the community group KPLAN. A special word of thanks goes to Michael Delany who worked tirelessly all week providing a collection service to all corners of the parish and further afield.
