Littleton was the venue last Saturday where the U12A panel participated in county stages of the Hurling Go Games. First they played Knockavilla Kickhams in the quarter final, defeating them comprehensively. The next game in the semi-finals was against Moyle Rovers. This was a very competitive match and our players had the upper hand by scoring in the final seconds of the game. The County Final was against old rivals Moycarkey Borris who we had beaten in the mid final in both hurling and football. This time it wasn’t to be and Boherlahan Dualla succumbed to a stronger opposition. Hard luck to our young stars, they can hold their heads up high with pride and be happy with all they have accomplished throughout the season. Panel: Jack O’ Riordan, Kevin O’Connor, Niall O’Dwyer, Martin Paul O’Dwyer, John Ryan (capt), Patrick O’Dwyer, Tom Clarke, Casey Hennessy, Cian Bargary, Mark Downey, Euan Ryan, Pauraic Clarke, Stephen Walsh and Luke Kevin. Thanks to mentors Brian Quaid, Liam Connolly, Tom Clarke and AJ Maher for their commitment. Thanks to Martin Bourke, our chairman and to all those who helped on the sidelines and to all the parishioners for their support.

Last Thursday our U14s had a challenge against Moyle Rovers, in Boherlahan. They play Moyne Templetuohy this Thursday, August 30, at 6.30pm in Boherlahan. This is the first round of the shield competition. Juvenile training continues every Saturday morning and on Wednesday evenings in Dualla.

It was learned with deep regret of the death of Carrie Ryan, Palmers Hill, Cashel, which occurred in Acorn Lodge Nursing Home on August 21. She was daughter of the late John and Bridget Bryant, Ballinree, and sister of the late Jack and Bertie and of the late Mai Fogarty, Nodstown. Her husband Paddy, late of Ardmayle and Ladyswell Street, who predeceased her in 1987 was also a native of the parish. Paddy was a hurler of ability in his day and won an All Ireland minor hurling medal with Tipperary back in 1930. Their son, Michael aged ten, predeceased them in 1960. Carrie, who had reached the advanced age of 94 years had a great interest in local history. In her latter years, Carrie took a keen interest in the Ardmayle Heritage Society with other members of her family and she was also involved in the Boherlahan Dualla Historical Journal Society. Her home in Palmers Hill was the venue for meetings of the Boherlahan Dualla Historical Journal Society. As an expert in culinary arts, she was a valued member of both groups who always appreciated her home baked confectionary. On Wednesday, a guard of honour, representative of the Ardmayle Heritage Society and of the Boherlahan Dualla Historical Journal accompanied her remains from Devitts Funeral Parlour to St. John the Baptist Church, Cashel. On the following day, her Requiem Mass celebrated by Fr. Christy O’Dwyer, Dean of Cashel, assisted by Fr. Joe Egan PP Boherlahan, Fr. James Ryan, Cashel, Fr. George Bourke PP Moycarkey, Fr. Thomas Egan PP Clonoulty, Fr. James Feehan, Thurles, Fr. Peter Brennan CC Boherlahan, Fr. James O’Donnell, Cashel, Fr. James Purcell CC Cashel & Rosegreen. Interment took place in Ardmayle cemetery. The large attendance on both days testified to her popularity and to the esteem in which she and her family are held. She is survived by sons Tom and Sean, daughter Marian, Judy and Frances (daughters-in-law), grandchildren, relatives and friends to whom sincere sympathy is extended. May she rest in peace.


Sympathy is extended to Maggie Linehan (nee O’Brien), Kilbreedy, on the death of her brother Thomas. Also to Ned and Barbara Tierney and Nora Tierney, Mayfield, on the death of their sister Kay Tierney. Ar dheis De go raibh a hainmeacha.
