Tallow has entered the Tidy Towns 2015 competition for the first time. We have a long road ahead and a lot of work to be done which will involve cleaning, painting and constant monitoring of litter. We are appealing to all residents and businesses to look after their own individual properties and area to the front of each property to ensure that paths are clean, litter free with no weeds present. We would appreciate if each house would arrange window boxes and hanging baskets to enhance the town. This year is our starting point and we will all move ahead in a positive manner to show Tallow to its best advantage!
The Tallow Tóstal Festival began in 2013, during the year of the Gathering.

Junior Football Championship: Tallow 1-07 Old Parish 1-08
Just when they looked to have sealed their place in the semi-finals, Tallow were denied in the last minute when Old Parish were awarded a penalty, which they converted to end Tallow's involvement in this years junior football championsip. Tallow had earlier been denied a penalty in an almost identical situation involving an illegal foot block.
it really was a game of two halves! Tallow played poorly in the first half but did enough in the second half to merit a narrow victory, there was very little in it either way. We wish Old Parish the best.
It wasn't inspiritn fare to be honest, with just two points in the first half from Mikey Curley. Old Parish were clearly the better team and were six points ahead at the break. It was hard to see how they could lose the game at this point.
An improved second half performance from Tallow in the second half with the introduciton of Jordan Henley gave us added impetus and mobility in attack. He opened the scoring for Tallow with a well taken point and Mikey added two more frees to reduce the deficit to a single score. Old Parish had a point of their own before a Paul O'Brien goal put Tallow in the lead for the first time.
Liam O'Hara Memorial Walk
A large crowd turned up on June 27th last, to show their support to the O'Hara family who had organised this event in conjunction with the postmen of Ireland and in aid of St. Anne's Alzheimers Unit in Dungarvan. The total collected on the day was €1,600 and an overall total along with the postmen nationwide, presented to St. Annes Unit was €9,100.
Liam's family would like to sincerely thank everyone who made this event possible and who helped out on the day, the sponsors of the refreshments, the stewards and to the tea makers and bakers who made sure everyone had a welcome cuppa when they returned to the hall.
Well done to all who took part.
