Della Ryan, the local community mother, facilitates the group and also offers home visits to new mothers in the area following the birth of a baby. The Community Mother's Programme is one of the services provided by North Tipp Community Services. For more information please contact Marian Quigley, co-ordinator at 067 - 41922.

St. Patrick's B.N.S. Football
The St. Patrick’s B.N.S. football team pictured with their coach, Michael Ryan.
St. Patrick’s Boys’ N.S. footballers contested a very exciting North Final in the Primary Schools’ Championship at Mc Donagh Park, Nenagh on Tuesday, October 21st, last. In a pairing that could truly be described as akin to David and Goliath, our talented young footballers gave everything you could ask for in a very exciting match. Coming from a school with a total of 59 pupils and facing a team from a school with over 360 could not be described as anything other than a formidable task. However, the boys from St. Patrick’s put on a marvellous display of courage, skill, determination, teamwork and sheer heart to emerge with a draw on a scoreline of 1:3 to 1:3. Parents, teachers and supporters who travelled to Nenagh were treated to a pulsating game where every player did his utmost to bring the title back to our school. All eagerly await the replay which has been fixed for Wednesday, November 5th. Well done to all concerned and all the best for the replay. Go n-eirí go geal libh, a bhuachaillí!

The Master Retires
PJ Harrington with his wife Mary is pictured here on the occasion of his retirement from national school teaching. The celebration took place at Jim of the Mills in Upperchurch recently. PJ taught in the Old Boys’ School in Borrisoleigh from 1969 to 1970 and in Scoil Bhríde Fantane from 1970 to 1974. By happy coincidence he met his wife Mary Kelly while she was on teaching practice in Fantane. He is said to be doing his homework ever since! We wish PJ the very best for the future.
PJ in deep conversation with Phil Bourke of Upperchurch, no doubt, thanking him for the wonderful piece of sculpture specially carved in honour of his retirement.
