but Ballyheigue opened their account in the 7th when David O’Mahony found
the Mitchel’s net. Ballyheigue went for a goal in the 27th but Captain Seán
Broderick brought off an excellent save and David O’Mahony split the posts
from the rebound. Mitchel’s raised another white flag in the 5th minute of
injury time to leave the halftime score John Mitchel’s 1-5 Ballyheigue 1-3.
John Mitchel’s hit the ground running in the 2nd half had Mitchel’s ahead
by 1-9 to 1-4 at the 50-minute mark. Tomás Gaynor pulled one back from a
free in the 53rd but Ballyheigue were dealt a hammer blow in the 56th
minute when a free floated into the Ballyheigue square gave Mitchel’s the
opportunity to raise their second green flag. So, it ended John Mitchel’s
2-12 Ballyheigue 1-5. Hard Luck to Buachaillí Bhaile Uí Thaidhg and well
done to Mitchel’s. Special Thanks to the Ballyheigue Management of Kieran

*Songs of Life*
The Heritage Group wishes to thank all who attended the Launch of Jim
Breen’s CD, to make the occasion a very happy and successful event. A host
of singers and musicians entertained the capacity crowd to celebrate the
renewed interest in traditional Sean-Nós Singing.
The Crotta 1968 Victory Song, composed by the late Micheál Harrington, was
sung by Sonny Egan as Jim played in goals on that historic day. The Hannah
Mary Waltz, a unique tune played over 100 years ago by Hannah Mary Flahive,
with connections to Kerryhead, and which is preserved for posterity on the
CD was played. The story of how descriptive song The Comet from Caherciveen
came to be written was unfolded when a letter from the composer, Paddy
Moriarty, Cloghane, Castlegregory, was read to the audience. Gabhaimid
buíochas ó chroí le gach duine a bhí i láthair.
