“We all identify with our own place. My place is Nenagh and I respect every man who is from every parish in Ireland who is identifying with his home. That’s the breeding since the world was made. I see the club as nothing only a way of giving our locality an airing on the public stage. It gives the youth of our town an opportunity to play our games. That’s what I see our club as” – Jimmy Minogue
