The victors take a bow!!
Oh the Tipperary County Scór Committee knew what they were doing when they chose the Marian Hall, Borrisoleigh as the venue for the Senior Scór Final on Saturday night last.  What a night it was!!  Between the quality of the performances on the stage and the atmosphere in the Hall, a thoroughly enjoyable night was had by one and all.  Claire Kavanagh opened proceedings with a beautiful rendition of Amhrán na bhFiann.  Much comment was made on the fabulous hospitality provided by the Borrisoleigh Scór Committee on the night.  Each competition met with the highest of standards and the very best of luck to all who succeeded in progressing to the next round. 

Our local competitors did us proud with the Question Time team and the Set Dancers coming out on top.  They are on stage again next Saturday night in Cappamore, at 7.00 p.m.  Why not come along and cheer them on.  The very best of luck to them.

Fundraising for Haven

On Friday 26th February a Table Quiz was held in Stapleton’s Bar to raised funds for The Haven Partnership’s Build it Week 2010.  Enda Ryan has volunteered to spend a week in Haiti with Haven at the end of April.  There was a very good turnout and a fun night was had by all, helped by the ever witty quiz master, Thomas Russell.  The total funds raised on the night came to €1,340 and Enda would like to express his appreciation to everyone for their support.  He would also like to thank Breed Cowan for providing the venue and the finger food, Donal Hurley, David O’Connell, Anna Ryan, Glenarisk, Anna Ryan, Coohaun, The Pantry Cafe, Nenagh, The Wine Buff, Nenagh and The Templemore Arms for sponsoring spot prizes.  If anyone still wishes to contribute they can do so by dropping their donation to Anna Ryan in O’Connell’s Pharmacy.

All-Ireland Semi-Final

St Joseph’s College Camoige team played St Bridgid’s Vocational School, Loughrea in a Junior ‘A’ All-Ireland Semi-Final on Saturday 27th February in Templederry.  Unfortunately the girls came up against a stronger team and were unsuccessful on the day, however they all played well and the opposing goalie had to make several successful saves to keep St. Joseph’s out of the All Ireland Final.  Well done to the team and their trainers on their success in gaining a Munster title on their first year in Division A.

 Thank You

Marian Dolan of Mount George wishes to say a big big ‘Thank You’ to those who came to her assistance on Pallas Street last Wednesday after she had a bad fall on the footpath. She is deeply grateful to the numerous good samaritans who came to her aid. (That being said: something really needs to be done with the footpaths as they are in a dreadful condition. Perhaps someone in the Council will take note and take action!)
