Juvenile Club Notes
Under 12: Both U12s had good games V Newport on Friday & both had good wins. Well done to all. Training as usual this week.

Camogie Club Notes
U8: Training is on Thursdays 5.30 to 6.30 with Ciarán Morris. We would like to thank the senior players for helping out over the last few weeks but as it is such a large group of players we need more help if they are to get the most out of their time in the field. We would encourage the parents to set up a rota to help out. Contact chairperson Caitriona Morris 087-7776135.
U10’s and U12’s training on Thursdays 5.30 to 6.30 . Well done to the u12s who played outstandingly well in the Camán to Munster blitz in Mallow last Saturday just missing out in the ultimate prize of playing in Croke Park.
U14: Training on Tuesdays 5.30 to 6.30. They are due to play against Cashel this week. You will be notified by WhatsApp message. Best of luck to Meaghan Morris, Hazel Cawley and Michelle Barry and their Tipperary u 14 colleagues in the Limerick blitz this weekend.
U16: The Nenagh/ Kildangan team played Ballina in what can only be described as an outstandingly skilful game of Camogie in MacDonagh park on Monday night in horrific conditions. It didn’t deter either team as they went at each other hammer and tongs. The newly amalgamated team are gelling well together but it was Ballina who raced into a 2.2 to 3 point lead at half time. Nenagh/Kildangan came out a different team in the second half after a robust half time team talk by Manager Martin Morris and also the introduction of Meaghan Morris and Hazel Cawley into the Nenagh/ Kildangan forward line was beginning to unsettle the Ballina backs. This was to be a ding dong game full of skill and determination as the lead changed hands a few times in the second half with Sarah Hallinan scoring 2 goals for Nenagh . Ballina looked to have clinched the game but an injury time goal from Meaghan Grace who was set up by Meaghan Morris ensured that the game ended a draw 3.4 apiece. They now play Newport away on Monday night and a win is a must for this team.

Membership: Membership for 2016 is now due and can be paid to any club officer or online. The cost of membership is again very reasonably priced at €25 with a family membership option A priced at €60 and an option B priced at €85.
Volunteer Appeal: The evolution of the Club over the last number of year , in terms of its size and structures has led to an inequitable spread of the workload across the membership and placed a very heavy burden on certain individuals. In 2015 the Nenagh Éire Óg club catered for over 500 members and this continues to grow. This offers a huge opportunity to have many talented people currently associated with the Club to become more involved in the day to day running of club affairs so that fresh faces can bring fresh ideas forward. Whether you are currently involved with the club or on the periphery, we are actively seeking volunteers to come forward. People get involved in the club because they want to not because they have to, If you are interested in getting involved in any capacity call 0872850732, contact any club officer or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Club Lotto: The Nenagh Éire Óg Club Lotto represents the club’s key fundraising initiative. Please consider supporting the Blues by playing our club lotto online: click here!
