Members of the Garden club who travelled on outing to Wexford to visit gardens last week had a very enjoyable day and escaped all the heavy showers.

First garden on visit was The Bay Leaf a two acre garden surrounding an 18th century farmhouse developed over 20 years from a neglected orchard and field creating an array of different garden areas, thanks to Francis and Ian for all their advice and hospitality.

Second Garden Ballymore Schoolhouse a 2 acre site with a large oriental temple garden including a traditional teahouse, stone bridge, stone lanterans and a moon gate, mirror garden and a peaceful dell garden etc. Thanks to Sylvia for the guided tour of garden and house. On return journey a meal at the Rue Glen.


In Crosscannon Cemetery this Friday, August 3, at 7pm (weather permitting).


Killenaule Moyglass Ladies had their first loss of the season on Sunday in the All Ireland quarter Final in Rathcoole against Peamount United. They were at the receiving end of a 8 - 1 beating as the star studded Dublin outfit passed the ball so well and made the Tipperary girls work so hard for the ball. The disappointing thing for the girls would be the fact that 6 of the goals were errors on their part, four from corners. The first half was all Dublin bar 3 good shots on goal from Shauna Hayes, Roisin Trehy and Erin Slattery and the half finished 5 -0. The second half was a different story, for 30 minutes Killenaule played fantastic soccer and Edel O’Dwyer had a goal disallowed for off-side and a Katie O’Regans header hit the post from an excellent Hannah Trehy cross before she scored from a free after Emer Barry was tripped up. Eidin Murphy, Aisling O’Conner and Cait Murphy were well on top at the back and came forward a lot putting pressure on Peamount but the scores did not come. The teams effort could not be faulted but in the last 10 minutes they tired and Peamount scored 3 more goals. It was a tough day for the team but a great learning experience. Subs used: Ellen Walsh, Aine O’Donovan, Aoife O’Connor, Nell Trehy and Fiona O’Connor. The next match will be on August 12, with a home game in the Cup to last year’s finalists Clerihan.
