Waterford v Kilkenny

Best of luck to Thomas Ryan and the Waterford senior hurlers who play Kilkenny this Saturday at 7pm in Semple Stadium, Thurles.

Failte roimh iomanai Naomh Columcille

With justifiable entitlement, Derry lays claim to being the cradle of the Civil Rights Movement that focused world attention on the naked discrimination and viciously sectarian order that prevailed in the north east of Ireland in the late ‘60s. If Derry was the cradle then Coalisland was present at the birth. The first Civil Rights march in the 6 counties took place on 24thAugust in 1968 from Coalisland to Dungannon.

This is the land of O Neill! They value their identity and Irish heritage. Coalisland , Clonoe and surrounding parishes touching the shores of Lough Neagh, have a long and proud tradition of resistance to oppression and foreign domination. They suffered more than their share throughout “the troubles” Despite, or maybe because of, this oppression, Irish language, culture and games are thriving. East Tyrone is staunch Gaelic football territory in the Red Hand County. Within a 3 mile radius of Coalisland you would encounter as many as 7 football clubs. Football is serious business in Tyrone!

The Naomh Columcille club is a hurling oasis in football heartland. Against all the odds they have survived and strive to promote our national game. It hasn’t been easy for them. More than anybody else Damian Mor O Neill has been central to the clubs formation and continued development. We welcome Damian and the hurlers of Naomh Columcille to Tallow this weekend to take part in coaching and games. On Saturday they will participate along with Tallow, Tourin and Ballyduff in a tournament for the Gary Duffin Cup. Gary was a talented hurler with the Tyrone club who died suddenly at the age of 26 in 2005. His parents Liam and Maura and other family members are travelling for the occasion. This is the second time that Tallow has had the privilege of hosting the competition but we have a long association with our northern friends and there have been many exchanged visits between the clubs going back to 1996.

They will have a light coaching session with James Murray on Friday evening and the games get underway at 11 on Saturday morning. Finals scheduled for approx 12 30/ 1 00! On Saturday afternoon the Tyrone lads will embark on a short tour of West Waterford taking in an Rinn Gaeltacht. Following 10 o clock mass on Sunday morning in the Convent our visitors will meet at Kearney’s Restaurant for breakfast before departing for the Munster Hurling Final and thence northward to Tyrone. We would like to thank all our host families who are providing accommodation and the Sisters of the Carmelite Convent who always give our visitors a great welcome.

Fundraiser

This Saturday 8th July we are holding our main fundraiser for the year. An auction will be held in Lizzy Langtons with doors open at 9.30pm. There is a €5 cover charge which will include tickets for a raffle on the night and music will be provided by No Recession. The main item is a nomination to leading National Hunt sire Mahler, kindly donated by Mr Bobby McCarthy of Beeches Stud, Tallow, Co.Waterford and a donation from the night's proceeds will be made to the West Waterford Injured Jockeys Fund. We would like to thank everyone who has helped in the organising of this night especially all those who have kindly donated auction items. We hope to see you all there for what should be a great night.

List of some of the items on offer are as follows:


Junior Football:

Tallow 1-6 Old Parish 2-11

Tallow competed well in the first half but as the game wore on Old Parish established their dominance and in the end emerged comfortable winners at Bushy Park last Sunday. Our final game before the knock out stages is against Shamrocks. No date as yet.

Tallow: W Curley, A Curley, J Tobin, M Tobin, E Hickey, K Fraser, Darragh Mulcahy, S O Sullivan, K Geary, K Henley, J Neville, E Sheehan, Billy Henley, B Buckley, A Buckley, S Curley.
