While it may not be Glastonbury or Stonehenge, but many are still looking forward to the Midsummer Concert in Crocanóir on Friday week, June 21. The well known trio of Mick McCauley, Winifred Horan and Colm Ó Caoimh will supply the music. You can find out much more about the trio on their website which is www.mccauleyhoranocaoimh. This concert promises to be one of the highlights of the musical year at Crocanóir. Early booking at 052915117 is advised.


Tipp’s defeat by Limerick on Sunday might provide inspiration for Mullinahone who have been drawn to play Killenaule in the South Tipp Senior Hurling final. Sometimes the outsiders come out on top and weakened by injuries and emigration Mullinahone must be regarded as outsiders in this semi-final. Since John Leahy first lined out for Tipp’s senior hurlers in the 1988 championship Mullinahone has been represented each championship year since by at least one player from our club. Paul Curran and Eoin Kelly brought up 26 consecutive years on Sunday last.


No doubt our village has got a great facelift over the last few weeks. We congratulate the Tidy Towns people, the Tus workers and the volunteers and sponsors who have been eliminating black spots from the village. With judging soon coming up in the Tidy Towns, it is most important that litter be kept tightly under control. We acknowledge the great training being given in our local schools and hope to see this kept up during the school holidays.


The recent fine weather brought children, parents and senior citizens to the new Community Park in great numbers. This wonderful facility in the village is due to be officially opened shortly. Some Sunday afternoon would make an ideal time.
