Jokes A husband was advised by his psychiatrist to assert himself. "You don't have to let your wife henpeck you. Go home and show her you're the boss." The man was on fire with enthusiasm and couldn't wait to try the doctor's advice! He rushed home, slammed the door, shook his fist in his wife's face, and growled, "From now on, you're taking orders from me. I want my supper right now, and when you get it on the table, go upstairs, and lay out my best clothes. Tonight, I'm going out with the boys and you're going to stay home where you belong. And another know who's going to comb my hair, iron my pants, polish my shoes and tie my tie?" "I certainly do," said his wife calmly, "The undertaker."

Two young boys were spending the night at their grandparents the week before Christmas. At bedtime, the two boys knelt beside their beds to say their prayers when the youngest one began praying at the top of his lungs. "I PRAY FOR A NEW BICYCLE..." "I PRAY FOR A NEW NINTENDO..." "I PRAY FOR A NEW VCR..." His older brother leaned over and nudged the younger brother and said, "Why are you shouting your prayers? God isn't deaf." To which the little brother replied, "No, but Granny is!"

A husband and wife came for counseling after 15 years of marriage. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 15 years they had been married. She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured over the course of their marriage. Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and, after asking the wife to stand, embraced and kissed her passionately as her husband watched with a raised eyebrow.

The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze. The therapist turned to the husband and said, 'This is what your wife needs at least three times a week. Can you do this?' The husband thought for a moment and replied, 'Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I golf.'

A young man called his mother and announced excitedly that he had just met the woman of his dreams. Now what should he do? His mother had an idea: "Why don't you send her flowers, and on the card invite her to your apartment for a home- cooked meal?" He thought this was a great strategy, and arranged a date for a week later. His mother called the day after the big date to see how things had gone. "The evening was a disaster," he moaned. "Why, didn't she come over?" asked his mother. "Oh, she came over, but she refused to cook...."

A policeman stops a lady and asks for her license. He says "Lady, it says here that you should be wearing glasses." The woman answered "Well, I have contacts." The policeman replied "I don't care who you know! You're getting a ticket!"

Little Johnny watched, fascinated, as his mother gently rubbed cold cream on her face. "Why are you rubbing cold cream on your face, Mommy?" he asked. "To make myself beautiful," said his mother. A few minutes later, she began removing the cream with a tissue. "What's the matter?" asked Little Johnny. "Giving up?"

A Cut Above the Rest An Irish Butcher Shop by Pat Whelan Published by The Collins Press Being one of Rick Stein’s food heroes is an honour bestowed on a select few; however, this is just one of Pat Whelan’s accolades. His first book is a sumptuous guide to meat cookery and is designed to help people explore the wonderful tastes that good quality meat offers. Coming from a long line of butchers (fifth generation on his mother’s side) and growing up over the family butcher shop it is no surprise that Pat is passionate about meat, particularly red meat. Using his expert knowledge of animals and butchery Pat describes the nutrient value of meat, details the importance of the slaughter, maturation and storing process to the taste and texture of the meat and most importantly how to identify good quality meat. This beautiful book includes stunning images of Pat’s favourite tried and tested recipes, dishes that sum up his warm, family-oriented and eclectic outlook on life. From the quickest pan-fried steak to a

slow-cooked leg of lamb, Pat describes the best methods and recipes for cooking popular as well as less fashionable cuts of meat to optimise the flavour and savour the wonderful taste. Pat is very proud to supply such high-quality produce to his local customers in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary. His family’s business was the first butchers to sell produce door-todoor. This tradition has been brought into the 21st century; it’s now possible for people nationwide to get the best fresh meat delivered to their door within 48 hours of ordering online from His passion for meat and local produce comes through on his blog He established and is Chairman of the Tipperary Food Producers, a network of businesses working in the Food Sector in Co. Tipperary. Their objective is to represent and promote the best of Tipperary food.

Lambert Puppets returns to The Source There are some names that are just iconic in the world of Irish entertainment. One of these is the Lambert Puppet Theatre. The Source is delighted to announce that they will be bringing their special magic to the venue on Sunday 24th October with their unique take on the children’s classic, Cinderella. Born out of founder member Eugene Lambert’s love of puppets, this internationally renowned company has been enchanting children for many years. Many generations of us grew up with the Lambert puppets as part of our everyday lives on RTE, in programmes such as Wanderly Wagon and Bosco. In fact you can almost define genera-

tions based on which of these classic series’ are their favourites. The Lambert Puppet Theatre Company is very much a family affair with Paula (the voice of Bosco) taking over the reins from her father in recent years and keeping this institution alive. his visit to Thurles sees them taking on the story of Cinderella and giving it the classic Lamberts twist. So be prepared to cheer the goodies and boo the baddies as audience participation will most definitely be called for and demanded. The Lambert Puppet Theatre present Cinderella at The Source Arts Centre on Sunday 24th October at 2pm and 4pm. Tickets €10.

We have a great track record of good referees in Tipperary and it is our ambition and intention to continue that tradition. Many people are happy to referee challenge games for their local clubs and we would urge them to make the next step, do the course and move up to refereeing official championship and league games.

The Boland Children Benefit Fund Fundraising Night in Silvermines The Boland family are from the parish of Silvermines. Both Ray (Dad) and Olive (Mum) grew up in the Silvermines / Nenagh area and decided that their five children Sandra (age 8), Kayleigh (age 6), Aimee (age 5), Aaron (age 4) and little Josh (age 2) would grow up and go to school in the parish of Silvermines. A few years ago Ray developed cancer but battled through it and the treatment, to come out the other side and into remission. Unfortunately the cancer cost him his occupation at the time, and soon after he started to recover his wife Olive developed a severe spinal problem brought on as a result of an occupational injury.

Nenagh Eire Og Camogie Notes

On the 14th of May 2010, Olive Boland at the young age of 37

years, suddenly passed away from what is believed to have been a heart attack, leaving her devoted husband Ray and her five beautiful children behind. Ray is currently doing a fantastic job of raising 5 children all under the age of 9 years on his own. (Can you imagine for a second, how you would cope in that situation) Ray & Olives relatives & friends help wherever and whenever they can, but it is clear that all Ray Boland’s time is now spent rearing, educating and playing with his children. The Boland children have lost their Mammy but are blessed with a wonderful devoted Dad. There is no option for Ray to resume a place in the work-force as

he needs to be with his children through their tender years, and therefore he is now dependant on state benefit. In order to ensure there is funding for the Boland children’s education into the future we have decided to set up a trust fund. We are planning a number of events in the next few months to try fundraise for the trust fund, the first being planned for the 22nd October, a benefit night at Hickeys Bar in Silvermines Village. If you would like to donate to the fund the a/c details are Bank of Ireland Nenagh 90-43-68 62657147

Sponsored By Nenagh Credit Union By Séamie Morris P.R.O. U 8s The u 8s traveled to Kilcoleman on Sunday and played two games against the home team. The standard of skills on show from both teams augers well for the future of both clubs. Afterwards they received refreshments and medals and we would like to thank Burgess for their hospitality. The end of year party for the u 8s will be held in Jump n Gyms next Friday October 22nd from 5 to 7 pm U10s The u 10s finished their season last Friday with a party in Funworld Limerick and a great night was had by all. U14s The season has now come to an end but it was another good year for the u14s reaching two county finals winning one against Moneygall in the B league final. They lost only one competitive match in the whole season which was the championship county final against Thurles after a mammoth struggle. Four of the Girls played on the Tipperary under 14 County team (a thank you to our own Mike Ryan who was involved with the County Coaching team), while others played on the Tipperary primary school teams. The team next year will be strengthened by the fact that over half of this years team are young enough to play u 14 again next year added to our the flow of girls from our County final winning u 12 team. A big thank you to all the girls who trained very hard and listened attentively to their coaches who were Mike Ryan Liam McGrath Tony Slattery Philip Ryan Mairead Long and Denise Morris a big thank you to the coaching team who put in a huge effort with the team. U 16s The under 16s finished the season on a high by winning the Cis Corcoran Tournament ( the late Cis Corcoran was known as the Queen of

Kildare Camogie)in Naas without conceding a single score in 4 matches. Due to other commitments we traveled with a very young squad with only 4 u 16s with the rest of the panel made up of u14s and u12s. This did not deter the girls who defeated Naobh Fionbarra ( Dublin) O Loughlin Gaels ( Kilkenny) Dunderry ( Meath) and Naas in the final. This very young team gave away a lot in size but it was their skill levels that shone through scoring 2710 in the four games and conceding nothing. Team captain Gemma Morris ber. We will need help in manning the picked up the Cis Corcoran trophy for 22nd October at 9 pm. All trainers, her team. We would like to thank Naas players and their families are invited to tables and we would encourage everyCamogie club for their hospitality and attend. County medals will be present- one to support our flag day as we cannot function and grow this great club also Ger Morris Philip Ryan and Kath- ed to the u 12s and u 14s on the night. without finances. leen McKenna for giving up their time The clubs flag day will be held next on Saturday to travel with the team.

U 18s The u 18s played their second game of their season against Moneygall on Sunday in Moneygall and came away with a heavy defeat. Moneygall were just too experienced for this young Nenagh team who were playing in the clubs second ever Minor game. Moneygall ran out 3.12 to 1-5 winners. Nenagh never gave up and gave it their all right up to the final whistle and Laura McKenna in the Nenagh goals gave a fantastic performance.

Abuse (Continued from previous issue) These are enormously powerful weapons because the oppressive sense of ongoing threat interferes with the survivor’s ability to move on and enjoy life. The abuser gets enjoyment from them, and it takes courage to cope with them. Survivors should be aware that the abuser has specific goals behind stalking and harassment, and it is important to understand these. They are as follows: ∙  To isolate and discredit the survi­ vor. You will already have seen that isolation is a basic strategy of abusers. The survivor may already have been isolated, and because the abuser is in contact with other people to a greater extent he/she may have greater credibility. The abuser is more likely to have the loyalty and sympathy of others in the event of a break up. ∙   To be perceived as a victim to gain sympathy. Abusers often express sorrow to the outside world about a breakup and so elicit the support and sympathy of others. ∙   To be perceived as a ‘good guy’, and render ongoing abuse unbelievable. Some abusers are able to turn on the charm for others (while reserving their anger for the survivor). They can portray themselves as affable and kind, and others do not suspect them of being abusers. ∙   To retain and continue to use oppor­ tunities to punish and control the survivor. The abuser misses the many opportunities he/she had when the relationship was intact to abuse the survivor and release tension. Since abuse is based on power and control the abuser is unwilling to let this power and control go. ∙   To prevent the survivor from mov­ ing on and developing a new life. The abuser wants the survivor to remain in his control, and any effort to move on, and perhaps develop a new relationship enrages him/her. This is what makes leaving an abuser so dangerous. Stalking destabilises the survivor, leaving him/her exhausted and depressed, and unable to move on. ∙   To enlist others in inflicting punish­ ment on the survivor. Since the survivor is more than likely isolated, the abuser may be able to get others to condemn him/her. The abuser’s friends may be uncomfortable in the presence

of complaints by the survivor and may shun him/her. This is very likely to happen in the case of the abuser’s family, who may take part in the denial of any abuse. Yet, survivors are not without power when dealing with stalking and harassment. This behaviour should be reported to the gardai, although this is not very effective. After all a person is entitled to attend events in which their children are taking part. Nevertheless, research shows that being confronted by a policeman can deter some abusers. A safety plan involving some of the points made above is also important. Perhaps the most important way to counteract stalking and harassment is not to react. This is easier said than done, but any reaction by the survivor gives the abuser satisfaction. The survivor knows the abuser better than anyone else, and so can devise an appropriate plan to deal with them. Setting physical boundaries as shown above is important, but the survivor should also develop internal boundaries. By this I mean survivors should be aware of the buttons that abusers can push, and should learn to disconnect from them. This requires practise and effort. Changing internal boundaries also means directing energy away from negative thoughts such as bitterness, resentment, anger and vengeance. Otherwise the survivor becomes like the abuser, and nothing gives an abuser more pleasure than to see the survivor gripped by negative, tormenting feelings.
