Praise for Tinahely champs

Cllr Vincent Blake led the congratulations to Tinahely GAA Club after its ladies won the Intermediate and Senior Championships last weekend.

St Pat's defeated AGB in the Junior Championships, while Tinahely beat St Nicholas in the Intermediate final and St Pat's in the Seniors.

Cllr Blake, a native of Tinahely, said: 'It was a great day in Aughrim. St Pats won the junior final but my home team of Tinahely won the Intermediates and Seniors. Commiserations to the other teams who lost. St Pat's are a great team and their day will come. I think Tinahely have won six titles in seven years which is a great achievement.'

Cllr Gail Dunne also attended the finals held in Aughrim and was full of praise for the St Pat's efforts.

'It was a great crowd. St Pat's juniors won.

'The senior team are a very young group of girls, pretty much the side who won the Feile 2014, and their day will come. They are a very talented side. It was a great day all-round in Aughrim.'
