Tallow AGM: While currently still under level five restrictions the club can't hold a meeting in our clubhouse to hold our annual AGM. The alternative is to hold the AGM over the Zoom technology on Friday the 19th February at 7.30pm. Such a precedent offers those abroad a chance to see the workings of our club over the last year. There are a few ways to avail of the opportunity . First one can text your email address to 087-7578829. You can also send the email address to your GAA what's app or the Tallow GAA Facebook page. While some of members and followers might not have access to such technology we will offer a ballot paper to be sent out to them if they wish to vote on the election of offers by texting or ringing the number above. For Tallow GAA to plan and proceed with any undertakings we need to hold this AGM as collectively the club has been incapable of holding meetings with the current constraints.

Picture: I came across this picture which I added some colour to. It looks like a Tallow with a sash are playing Dungarvan. The venue looks to be Lismore by the look of the trees and the embankment. The photo is possibly taken in the late thirties or early forties.

Seanfhocail na Seachtaine: Maireann an iománaíocht 's tá sé doscriosta dé bharra uaisleacht déine nochtadh. Hurling survives and is indestructible because of its stern and naked grandeur.

Club Lotto: We hope to have the lotto back in some form in March. I will post the lotto details when I receive them in the next few weeks. The lotto has been in operation since 12th October 1998 and is the bloodline of the club.

Combbhrón: CLG Tulach an Iarainn would like pass on our condolences to the Mike , Johnny, Mark and Miriam Geary and family on the passing of Mary Geary(nee Cashman) the Square. Mary's sons and grandsons have given great service to the club over the years and we are thinking of all the family at this time. We also learnt of the passing of Brendan Hartigan and would like to pass on our condolences to the Hartigan family. There will be a piece on Brendan done in a few weeks. Brendan's most famous moment in the Tallow jersey happened in the county Football intermediate final of 1976 in which he saved a penalty as his quick wit and nature unsettled the Gaultier penalty taker. He was on the panel of the 1980 county final triumph against Dunhill. He was selector for junior hurling and football many a year as well as Deise draw and lotto seller. He was also on the committee in the forming of Cois Bhríde. Deontas scíthe síoraí ris dóibh
