Local newspaper review

Nenagh Guardian

This week’s Nenagh Guardian leads with Labour Minister of State Alan Kelly’s announcement of a potential natural gas link for the town while Simon O’Duffy’s off-lead concerns the withdrawal of rail services.

Simon O’Duffy also has a smashing story on the Choral Society’s efforts to make a return to their spiritual home in the Scout’s Hall - the Choral Society plan to begin renovation works on the Nenagh landmark in early 2013. 

The Nenagh Guardian also reports that Nenagh Town Council are considering lighting Nenagh Castle in green as part of the St Patrick’s Day Festival while more progress has been made on the project to deliver an all-weather pitch to the town.

Margaret O’Connor’s (Quigley’s Bakery) entrepreneur of the year award from IMAGE magazine also features in this week’s edition as do photos from the Tidy Towns mid-west regional awards ceremony. And, don’t miss the terrific Christmas shopping and events guide!

As we have come to expect the sports section is as comprehensive as ever with sports editor Shane Brophy leading on County Board chairman Seán Nugent’s call for the structure of the club championships to be drastically altered - page four houses a terrific explanation of what the proposed changes would mean in practice.

The Munster GAA awards also feature this week while on the front page you are treated to a terrific photo of Stephen Carey plundering the winning try for Nenagh Ormond in their victory over Skerries at New Ormond Park on Saturday.

There are also reports from the under-21 championships while Shane Brophy’s “In All Fairness” column reflects on racism in the GAA, the sports capital grants scheme and his affection for Notre Dame.

Tipperary Star

Meanwhile the Tipperary Star also leads with Alan Kelly’s announcement on the potential gas link for Nenagh.

The Nenagh page leads with a story concerning the fact that the people of Nenagh will be consulted prior to a potential relocation of the bus stops on Kickham Street to the train station while it also features Margaret O’Connor’s (Quigley’s Bakery) entrepreneur award.

County Board chairman Seán Nugent questions the appetite for change in Tipperary in terms of the club competition structures in the sports section while the Tipperary Star also publishes an alternative Tipperary inter-county fifteen following a survey of their readers.
