Congratulations and well done to Ciara Holden, a member of the Kilkenny Minor Team that won the All-Ireland on Saturday 11th May in Dungarvan. The club would like to thank Corraig Construction on their sponsorship for 2013.

The 12 a-side tournament which was a success last season is currently taking place with local teams participating. Also congratulations to the Mullinavat club members of the Kilkenny senior camogie panel who defeated Galway over the weekend and continue on their winning ways. Could this be their year?


Congratulations to our county minor representative John Walsh who was a member of the successful minor panel that defeated Dublin and qualified for the leinster minor final where they will face Laois who overcame Wexford in the other semi final last Sunday. Another Mullinavat connection with the team was the Manager who is Pat Hoban son of Peggy and the late Thomas Hoban of Main Street. We wish both the best of luck in the Leinster final where hopefully the senior team can overcome Dublin in the replay of the semi final and make it a great Kilkenny occasion.

Congratulations to Liam Geary Garrandarragh who won a cash prize in the Piltown Draw. Liam was the only winner from the club in the first draw. Again a big thank you to all who supported the club by buying tickets and the best of luck in the rest of the draws.


No winner of the community lotto last week the numbers drawn were 11,18,20,23. The jackpot has now risen to €11,100 so the best of luck to everyone taking part this week.


While lady luck didn’t smile with glorious sunshine a lot of people braved the elements to make this a great day. General consensus was that the new venue was a great success and the committee must be congratulated on putting on such a show with something for all the family young and old. Hopefully 2014 will be kinder in terms of weather and I’m sure the planning is under way already.
