We are asking our members and supporters to make every effort to play our lotto online while restrictions are still in place. It costs just €2 per week to play safely online and there are different payment plans available. Please choose the ‘auto-renew’ option and also help family members who may not have an online presence to join. The link to join is on the club website – www.nenagheireog.com. The lotto continues to be one of our main fundraisers and as we are applying for grants etc for our upcoming developments, we need to prove that our existing fundraising is adequate in the current Covid climate to be considered for these grants. For this reason it is of vital importance to us now that everyone continues to row in behind our lotto as we try to increase the online subscription to this important fundraiser.
A reminder to all our players, mentors and supporters that membership for 2021 is now due and can be paid online via the link above. This can also be paid by contacting Club Registrar Enda Long at 087 2213954 or any Club Officer.

The GAA have introduced a new club registration system “Foireann” which is now online. While membership monies are, for now, still paid through Clubforce or to any committee member, members must also set up their own registration on Foireann as outlined below:
1. Go to foireann.ie. If you have previously used the Returntoplay system from last year, your existing username and password will work. If you have not used Returntoplay, you can register a new profile.
2. You will then be sent an email by Foireann to the email address you used to register your account. Click the link in this email to verify your account.
3. This link will bring you back to Foireann where you fill in the remaining details to your account.
Follow the link below for an instructional video on how to sign up.
All players must complete their own registration in Foireann by 31st March to be eligible for injury support during the year so we are asking players to set this up ASAP.

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.
Team Ella Carey , Siobhán Collins , Sarah Seymour , Katie Morris , Abbie Sheedy , Maeve Ryan , Naoise McCloone , Ellie Spain , Maeve Hassett , Aishlin Moran , Lucy Spain (0.1pt) Meaghan Grace(1.1) Sarah Hallinan (2.0) Lilly O Brien, Emma Gavin, Meaghan Morris (0.2) Eva McKeogh ,Hazel Cawley , Caoimhe Clancy ,Orla Flannery ,Leah McLoughney .
Hard luck to Ella Carey ,Lucy Spain , Katie Morris and Maeve Hassett and their Tipperary u 16 team who lost out to Cork in the Munster final last weekend.
The senior team continue to train hard as they prepare themselves for the Senior championship later in the year.
The club will have a celebration of our hard won elevation to senior status in the Scouts Hall May 13th. It will celebrate all the players and management of the club that were involved since the foundation of the club. It will also be an opportunity to thank our sponsors and allow our sponsors and opportunity to showcase their businesses in the entrance to the hall.
Our annual clothes collection is on Saturday April 22nd, and is a great way for your spring clean to make money for our club.

On Tuesday March 29th, our under-16 camogie side made the trek to Newport for the opening match in this year’s championship and were unfortunately on the receiving end of a 2-11 to 1-3 score line which belies the true nature of the game.
With seven minutes left on the watch of referee Stephen Egan only three points separated the sides, however a late scoring burst from the hosts saw them rattled off 2-2 and ended any hopes Nenagh had.
The game was marred by a torrential downpour moments before throw in and it continued until mid way through the first half making the underfoot conditions impossible for the players however it failed to dampen the enthusiasm of the girls who put on an entertaining hours hurling for those present.
The home side started brightly and had four points on the board by the 17th minute and things looked like they were going to get a lot worse for the Blues when Newport created an excellent goal chance but Niamh Sheridan in the Éire Óg goal produced a magnificent save. Indeed, Sheridan had a fine game making a second solid save on 45 minutes and she looked comfortable dealing with highballs and made some excellent deliveries with her puck outs.
Nenagh’s opening score came on 23 minutes following a great run by Leah Kelly. She was fouled just outside the 21-yard line and up stepped Caroline Browne to take the resultant free. She shaped as if she were going to point it but instead blasted a low shot that gave the Newport backs on the line no chance. Newport responded with a point of their own before Leah Kelly treated the crowd to the score of the game. She raced 30 yards in what looked like the pursuit of a lost cause but eventually got to the 14-yard line right out on the sideline to spectacularly block down the Newport back before scooping up the sliothar and splitting the post from the tightest of angles. The halftime whistle sounded shortly after, leaving the scores at Newport 0-5 Nenagh Éire Óg 1-1.
Newport started to dominate the second half and shot four unanswered points to open up a five-point lead by the 47th minute. Ella Carey responded with a fine point after great work from Megan Grace. Becky McGrath won possession out near midfield and delivered an inch perfect pass to Caroline Browne who narrowed the gap to three and it looked like we were in for an exciting finish but Newport finished the game strongly, scoring 2-2 to end any Nenagh hopes.
Nenagh: Niamh Sheridan, Eva McKeogh, Abbie Sheedy, Katie Mannicle, Rachel Browne, Lily Purcell, Lily O Brien, Rachel O Connor, Megan Grace, Caroline Browne, Becky McGrath, Leah Kelly, Aisling Moran, Orlaith Kennedy, Ella Carey. Subs Orla Sheridan for Kelly, Meghan Morris for Kennedy, Saoirse Shanahan for Moran.
Referee: Stephen Egan (Portroe)

We hope this will be the beginning of many appearances in the senior set up from Alanna. We also send our congratulations to the county minor side who won against Kilkenny, the reigning all Ireland champions, by two points.
