U21 Hurling: We played Sean Treacy's in the county 'C' semi-final in Newport on Sat 2nd Oct. In a game we controlled throughout we won on a final score of 4-12 to 0-08. In the County final played last Saturday, it was a rematch against Moneygall who had defeated us in the North final. In a tight first half we trailed by a single point, however in the second half Moneygall proved stronger and won 2-12 to 1-09. Hard luck to the players and all involved with this team.

Intermediate Football: We lost the County Quarterfinal to Ballyporeen 0-15 to 1-06. Having won our first North Intermediate title the previous week, this game showed that we can also compete in this grade on a county level. Hard
luck to those involved.

Minor Hurling: The County 'C' final was played last week in Nenagh. Shannon Rover Gaels were favourites going in to the game, our players put it up to them for long periods but in the end the Gaels proved stronger. All the players put in a huge effort throughout the year and were unfortunate not to win any silverware.

Juvenile AGM: The AGM of the Juvenile GAA Club will be held on Mon. 15th Nov. next in the clubhouse in Shallee. We would encourage as many people as possible to attend. Anyone interested in helping out in any way next year would be greatly appreciated. The Club needs help from more parents etc. next year. All views & new ideas welcome. If you would like to get involved in any way, please contact any member of the present committee.

Senior Football: Marcus Ryan captained Fr. John Keynon's in the North senior football final last Thursday night, both Marcus and Anthony Carolan were involved with the team. The were defeated on a score of 0-17 to 1-05.

Upskilling Coaching Courses: Anyone interested in doing the Foundation and/or Level 1 Coaching courses, please contact Declan Finn as soon as possible. McCarthy Cup: Big celebrations took place on Saturday night when Shane
McGrath brought Liam McCarthy to Killoscully. Some of the members of the winning Tipperary panel and management team were also in attendence. A presentation was made to Shane to mark his achievement. A big thanks to all
those who organised the night and ensured everything ran smoothly. Apologies to anyone who may not have been aware of the cups visit to the Killoscully on Sat, the visit to Ballinahinch was cancelled to to a tragic death in the parish, and this will now take place at a later date. Thanks also & well done to Conor O'Mahony for having the Cup on display around Newport the previous week.

AGM: With events on the playing field coming to a close, the date for the club Annual General Meeting has been set for 26th November in Killoscully hall. Nomination forms for positions will be sent out shortly to club members. Club accounts will be closed shortly too also so any outstanding issues should be raised with club treasurer Pat Jones.
Lotto: There was no winner of last weeks lotto (11th Oct). The jackpot was EUR2,650 and the numbers drawn were 7-15-16-29.

Sympathies: It was with great sadness we learned of the passing of Tadgh Foley last week. He was serving as president of the GAA club, and had a big involvement in all aspects of the community throughout his life. The club wishes to extend its sympathies his family and friends especially to his wife Maura, children Cathriona, Noreen and John. May he rest in peace. A minute's silence was held as a mark of respect to him prior to the U21 Hurling County Semi-Final. The club also wishes to extend it sympathies to the family and friends of Mattie Gleeson (Killoscully) who passed away in tragic circumstances last weekend.
