Tenor Michael Molumby
Many of us as parents, somewhere along the line to date, have experienced the stress and upheaval brought about by having had a sick child in hospital and for those of us lucky enough not to have experienced this ordeal, let’s give thanks to our God, whoever we conceive Him to be.
Keeping this thought to the fore, do take note that a fabulous repertoire of songs have been put together for a special concert in aid of Crumlin Children’s Hospital, which will be hosted by local well known and loved tenor Mr Michael Molumby on Saturday evening next, November 30th in that wonderful welcoming venue, the Horse and Jockey, near Thurles.
Michael, together with a few very professional and talented guest performers, namely; Susan Corcoran, Cathy Keane and Valerie O’Hanlon, have all been working very hard behind the scenes in the last number of weeks, under the musical direction of Mary Rose McNally, to provide a varied and expansive selection of vocal entertainment for you, in what is expected to be a packed venue on the evening.
All proceeds from this event will go to Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children as part of their “Fix Crumlin,” appeal.
Michael, ably assisted by his wife Maria are both hoping to make this event a bumper evening, with top class entertainment being provided. There will be a ‘vocal something,’ to suit everyone’s taste, with selections from popular Irish ballads, medleys, solos, a section from the musicals, some up-tempo popular numbers and of course to round the evening off, that essential festive sing-a-long of Christmas medleys.
Master of Ceremonies for the evening will be George Willoughby. (Latter, I hasten to add, has sworn, under Oath , not to sing, so the large expected turnout should not be seriously affected.)
This gala event will kick off at 8:00pm and anyone wishing to purchase tickets may do so through the Horse and Jockey Hotel at Tel: 0504 44192 or through the organisers.
Tickets cost just €15, so do get along to this event for a guaranteed great night out and in doing so you will put your shoulder behind a truly worthy cause.
Be warned: Remaining tickets, for what promises to be a truly memorable event, are getting as scarce as ‘Hen’s Teeth,’ so take my advice and ensure that you have secured seating for this once-off incredible celebration of music & song.
Remember Venue & Date:- Saturday evening next, November 30th 2013 in the Horse and Jockey.
Comedian Tommy Tiernan will begin his world tour of Tipperary beginning late next month.
Tiernan states he is delighted to be touring Tipperary, “a county as split as Korea,” but regardless, the Irish comedian, actor and writer will be bringing his show to both sides of the North/South divide.
Tommy’s mother Helen O’Brien was born and raised in Clonmel Co Tipperary and he spent many a family holiday as he recalls “skittin around the town.”
Not always at home in a county which has no coastline, Tommy will take to the roads of North Tipperary with a show full of stories gathered from his touring of both rural Ireland and the rest of the world.

Its membership of some 10,500 volunteers throughout Ireland are supported by a professional staff, all working for social justice and the creation of a more just, caring nation. This unique network of social concern also gives practical support to those experiencing poverty and social exclusion, by providing a wide range of services to people in need.
The presentation represented the proceeds of Boutique Salon’s most enjoyable evening event entitled “Style Me Wonderful,” held at “The Watermill ,” Thurles town’s newest & most impressive licensed hostelry.
Patricia Loughnane, President of Thurles Toastmasters Club (2013-2014) reports;
As our poster above explains; Tipperary Toastmasters are hosting their first ever ‘Gathering’ for 2013.

Large groups are expected from Toastmasters Clubs from Clonmel, Cashel, Killaloe & Ballina, Nenagh, Roscrea and indeed further afield.
At this event light refreshments will be supplied (Lunch will be an extra), and the event is open to everyone, offering a chance to find out what Toastmasters is all about and to be truly entertained.
Time: 10:00am to 1:00pm
Admission: is €8.00 per person including light refreshments.
Note: After lunch, a guided tour of Holy Cross Abbey is planned, (an optional extra, free) which will end what promises to be a truly entertaining event.
Remember Toastmasters is a place where you develop and grow – both personally and professionally so do join this enjoyable “Gathering.”
A six week’s course in social dancing will commence in The Premier Ballroom, Thurles, Co. Tipperary on Tuesday 3rd of September 2013 at 8.30pm sharp.
These classes are suitable for anyone over 18years of age, who may wish to learn the very basic steps of social dancing, (i.e. waltz, foxtrot and quickstep etc.).
The classes are ideally suited to the requirements of newly engaged couples, bridesmaids and grooms-men who may be somewhat fearful of participating in that first Wedding Day dance, on some eagerly awaited sunny Saturday afternoon scheduled for the coming months, or indeed it may be for some other future public occasion or just for basic enjoyment.
It goes without saying, dancing, apart from obviously being enjoyable and a way of making friends socially is one of the best forms of physical exercise.
The total cost, inclusive, of this six weeks course is a meagre €20, which covers full costs associated with this overall course.
An enjoyable six week course is guaranteed and this event is, as usual being organised and subsidised by the very generous, successful and professional ‘Thurles Club for Dancing.’
