A huge crowd turned out for the Cahir GAA field Day, last Sunday, in the GAA Field.

The day began with u.6s and u.8s blitz with Richie Cagney and his crew ensuring this was a tremendous success. We also had visiting camogie teams from Crumlin in Dublin who took part in games at Duneske earlier in the day. The baby show was won by Julie Sweeney and Melanie Flannery and as the Miss Cahir GAA competition had to be cancelled earlier in the week it was decided to crown someone at the field day with the title and a beautiful piece of jewellery sponsored by John Quirke jewellers. The winner of the title was Nicola Armitage.

Emily Caplice was the proud winner of the rabbit and hutch competition and her dad was over the moon with another edition to his family! A huge thank you has to go to the Moloney family of Poulmucka who donated the rabbit and hutch for the competition and for the magnificent display of their animals and birds throughout the day. Thanks also to Jim Gutherie for the use of his beautiful pony for the pony rides for the children and to Louise and David O’Connor for bringing their animals for the children to guess the weight and ages.

To the hardworking ladies on the shop, bric-a-brac and handbag stalls who were kept busy all day “Thank You”. Anne-Marie Davis spent her time with her crew painting the Tipperary colours on the young women’s nails which went down a treat. Thanks to Paul Lafford who supplied the music entertainment throughout the day and added to the atmosphere and there was a surprise visit from Johnny B who gave us a rendition of his new song “The Premier Return” which had everyone in the field rocking.

Wally Costigan and Ted Lenihan made sure everyone was fed with their delicious burgers and who can forget the ladies at the afternoon tea area who were run off their feet all day pouring tea and distributing their homemade cakes and buns. Thanks to Dan Casey and Gerry Brennan for their electrical expertise throughout the whole event and a huge thank you to the fantastic Cahir Majorettes who rounded off the evening with a magnificent display of their work. The girls were amazing and we look forward to seeing them perform again soon. From Larry and John on the Gate to Benny, Willie, Ger and crew who set everything up and to all the hard working men, women and children who helped to make the day such a success we thank you one and all. Finally we all want to wish “Mr. Field Day” himself Larry Molan a speedy recovery and let him know how missed he was on the day and hopefully he will be back to us very soon.
