Well done to the 127 people who gave blood when the Blood Donor clinic came to the GAA Hall recently.
Not many hurling medals make their way to this part of Cork, so when there’s two on one day, it is something to special, as Conor O’Callaghan won a Minor medal, and Mark Ellis a Senior medal. On top of that Jack O’Riordan threw over a point in the primary game 🙂 Below are some photos from the day:
We thank Presenter John Greene for the following advance information regarding his radio documentary this evening. (S.R.)
Two of the reasons regularly put forward for the survival of traditional music in Ireland are that the country was not one of the battlegrounds in either of the two world wars, and also that our economy was largely agricultural, where tradition usually lives and thrives.
In a four part programme on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene looks at some of the other reasons, like the influences of some of our most talented musicians, composers and collectors.
All roads lead to Thurles today for the Munster Hurling Finals where three local lads are playing for Cork. First up is Conor O’Callaghan at corner back (#2) for the Cork Minors (2pm). Then it’s the turn of Jack O’Riordan in the Primary Game. Finally Mark Ellis lines up at centre back (#6) for the Seniors against Clare (4pm). The best of luck to them all, and have a great day everyone that’s lucky enough to have tickets.
It follows on from a day when four local lads were representing Cork footballers underage: Francis Cronin, captain of the U16s; Darragh Cashman & Luke Murphy, U15s; and Eoin Sheahan, U14. [read more …] “Our Thurles Trio”
