Templemore Ladies FC
In U-19 action Team 2 have qualified for the County D final following victory over Fethard on Sunday last. Angela Gleeson’s goal was the difference at the break as Templemore led by 1-2 to 0-2. A Fethard major tied it up just after the break but goals from Molly Nevin and another from Gleeson proved too much for Fethard as the girls ran out 3-7 to 2-3 winners. Best of luck to all in the final. Team 1 also faced Fethard but a failure to turn possession into scores cost them in the end as they bowed out of this years championship. Big thanks to all those who trained the team and we look forward to seeing the girls back in '22.

Post Office moves
This Friday (Dec 3rd) at 4pm saw the Post Office on Main Street close its doors. The Hassey family have operated here since 1975. But fear not folks as the business will reopen in Eurospar on the opposite side of the square. Keep an eye out for next week’s edition which will feature the history of the Post Office in the town.
