Brendan Tyrrell RIP – The Club extends deepest sympathy to the Tyrrell family Treanmore on the death of Brendan in England last week. Brendan was a gifted underage footballer and won a Minor Championship with Mohill in 1954, he was called up to the County Minor panel the same year. He, unfortunately, had to emigrate to England in his teens. His grand- nieces and nephew, have all played for Mohill.  Ar Dheis Dé go raibh sé.

I’m a Celeb – Fundraising is going well so far and in the last week two successful Pub Quiz were held. Aoife O Brien in Lynch’s of Kilclare and Padraig McLoughlin in Clarkes Front Bar, both well attended and Aoife and Padraig would like to thank all who contributed. Nicola Tully put many people through their paces in a Spinathon in Kilglass GAA Club rooms. Adrian McCaffrey held a very successful Darts Tournament in Cusacks and on Sunday morning the Ladies Club helped Charlene Tyrrell run a Cake Sale
