									                 Clonmel Commercials Notes
The Under 12’s qualified for the County final when they defeated
Clonoulty on Monday evening last in Monroe by 3-08 to 1-01.
This was a good sporting game between the two sides.
Commercials led by 2-06 to 1-01 at the break but Clonoulty came
back at us in the second half but great defending kept them at bay.
We thank Clonoulty for a sporting game and also Moyle Rovers
for the having the pitch in such fine condition. We wish the lads
the best of luck in Semple Stadium next Monday night June 20th in
the County final. And we would urge as many from the club come
along and give the lads all the support against Loughmore.
The U14’s defeated Ardfinnan in a play off to qualify for the South
semi-final. In the semi-final they came up against a much fancied
Cahir side. From the start the lads never left Cahir settle and led at
half time by 1-06 to no score. Cahir came into it more in the
second half but the lads stepped up again and ran out 1-10 to 2-02
winners. In the final we play Moyle Rovers next weekend and we
wish all involved the best of luck.

Tipperary lost one of its most famous sons on Sunday evening last
when the late great Bunny Lambe passed away. A true gentleman,
Bunny was a friend to everyone and will be sorely missed. His
laugh and smile was heart melting and will never ever be forgotten.
Bunny was the holder of 4 Co Senior Football medals. He won 2
with the 10th Battalion in 1943 & '45, 1 with Commercials in 1948
and his last with his beloved Old Bridge in 1952. Bunny also had
the honour of playing Railway Cup in 1945 where he lined out
alongside Sean Cleary of Commercials. Sean quotes as saying that
"Bunny had no equals and no piers in the game. He truly was one
of the finest footballer ever to wear a blue and gold jersey." Bunny
captained Tipperary in 1949, his famous picture adorns the walls
of many pubs in Clonmel. Bunny also had the honour of being
awarded the Knocknagow award in 1994 and was also the 1st ever
recipient of the Sean Gaol award in 2003. His list of awards and
achievements were phenomenal. He was also a great friend of
legendary Kerry footballer Paddy "Bawn" Brosnan and in the 80's
Paddy was a regular visitor to Clonmel for a pint of the "Black
Stuff" Probably the finest hour in Bunny's GAA career was when
he took his beloved Old Bridge to winning their only Co title in
1952. On that day he played alongside some of his great friends
and team-mates such as Chris Regan, Philly Dwyer, Wack
O'Meara and Seamus Dwyer to name just a few. Commercials
would like to offer their sincerest sympathies to the family and
friends of Bunny. So much could be written about Bunny so we
hope this small piece of writing will offer some condolence to his
family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
The club would also like to extend its sympathy to the family and
friends of Dan Pyke who passed away recently. May he rest in
