Congratulations to our under fourteen hurlers on a hard fought win against a battling Burgess side. The match ebbed and flowed. Goals scored by one team were swiftly answered by goals from the other side. The final score line was 5-10 to 3-13 in favour of Nenagh Éire Óg. We’re all very proud of this bunch of hurlers. Well done to all involved.

Éire Óg 3-10 Lorrha Rovers 5-15
Our minor hurlers were the first team in the club to take to the field in championship action this year and ended up on the wrong side of a 3-10 to 5-15 scoreline against Lorrha Rovers in Puckane. Seth Shayanewako was in flying form early on setting up goals for Ben West and Seán Crowe however Lorrha Rovers quickly took control and as we approached half time, they took a lead which they would not relinquish for the remainder of the encounter. Jamie Cottrell got a late goal for the Blues but it wasn’t enough to close the gap.
Éire Óg 1-14 Kilruane 1-13
Nenagh Guardian Match Report –
In group 2, Nenagh Éire Óg overcame Kilruane MacDonaghs by the narrowest of margins on Sunday morning, 1-14 to 1-13.
They had to do so after losing Dáire Quinn early on through injury after James Cleary and Kieran Cahill had given MacDonaghs a two-point advantage. Indeed Cahill had a fine afternoon for Kilruane, finishing with a personal tally of 0-6.
At half-time Kilruane led 0-9 to 0-6 but the home side were quick off the mark scoring 1-2 inside the opening four minutes of the second period; the goal was scored by Adam Healy after good work from Killian Gleeson. Nenagh controlled the second half but had a nervy finish as James Cleary scored a late goal to level the sides but Killian Gleeson quickly restored Nenagh’s lead with what proved to be the match winning point.
North Tipperary Junior A Hurling League

Played in miserable conditions the team followed up their great win over Kilruane MacDonaghs with another fine performance.
The team was as follows: Dáire Gleeson, Connie O’ Reilly, Brian Tuite, Alex Jones, Conor Bonar, Brian Maxwell, Mark Flannery, Niall McKeogh, Christopher Ryan, John Cahalan, Killian Malone, Darragh Walsh, Craig Hilmi, Niall Madden, Adam Healy.

Nenagh Éire Óg qualified for the intermediate camogie league final today following a great 4-7 to 1-9 victory over neighbours Silvermines.
In fact, it was Silvermines who started brightest creating three scoring opportunities in the opening few minutes, hitting two wides and forcing Sarah Quigley into making the first of many fine saves in the second minute from a ground shot however it was Éire Óg who made the first dent on the scoreboard with a pointed free from Ciara McGrath. The ‘Mines responded with a pointed effort of their own before a Ciara McGrath delivery into the penalty box created panic in the ‘Mines defense. The ball eventually broke to Maeve Coffey who blasted home the opening goal in the 8th minute.
Silvermines responded with a point soon after however in the 11th minute Alanna Morris gathered the sliothar on the ’45 and her effort at a point dropped short and with strong pressure from full forward Louise Hickey the ball ended up in the goal for a welcome but fortuitous goal for Nenagh. The Silvermines were plying their trade in the senior grade up to two years ago and they were not about to lie down to last years county Junior-A league and championship winners and pointed five times on the trot between the 20th and 27th minute.
On the stroke of half time Alicia Hallinan forced the ‘Mines keeper into making a superb point blank save but moments later Hallinan pointed to leave the score at Nenagh Éire Óg 2-2 Silvermines 0-7 at the break.
Nenagh started the second half brightly and after Sarah Quigley collected a high ball the sliothar was brilliantly worked up the field to Caroline Browne who pointed from a tight angle to extend Nenagh’s lead. Alanna Morris traded points with Silvermines and midway through the second half Zoey Gratton won possession and found Maeve Coffey with a great pass. Coffey in turn fed Browne who shot home Nenagh’s third goal.
Ciara McGrath pointed soon after which in turn was cancelled out by a fine Silvermines effort. With ten minutes to play Coffey showed her class when she superbly found Caroline Browne who once again goaled for the Blues’. Nenagh were on top at this stage and captain Louise Hickey played in Rachel O Connor who pointed herself and substitute Leah Sheedy got in on the scoring act, pointing in the 57th minute.
Silvermines bravely never gave up and it took two outstanding moments of brilliance from Sarah Quigley to deny them a goal in the 59th minute when she made a great double save. From the resultant 45 Silvermines worked a great goal but it was too late and soon after referee John Lillis sounded full time to leave it Nenagh Éire Óg 4-7 Silvermines 1-9.
The final is expected to take place on Saturday April 30th.
Nenagh Éire Óg: Sarah Quigley, Amy Heffernan, Rachel Maher, Kate O Connor, Ruth Hassett, Aileen Duggan, Zoey Gratton, Alanna Morris, Rachel O Connor, Emer Ryan, Ciara McGrath, Alicia Hallinan, Caroline Browne, Maeve Coffey, Louise Hickey (captain).
Substitutes: Holly O Brien for Maher, Leah Sheedy for Hickey, Sarah Kennedy for Hallinan.
Referee: John Lillis (Drom & Inch)
Our Junior A team survived a late comeback by Borris-Iliegh to run out 2-15 to 1-11 winners and keep their unbeaten start to the League intact. The game was slow to start, but was a good and entertaining encounter despite the poor conditions.
Willie Bolger opened the scoring for Nenagh in the 8th minute, a score followed swiftly by points from Darragh Walsh and Bob O’Brien. Two quick points from Borris’ closed the gap to the minimum, before points from David Cleary and Bob O’Brien gave Nenagh a two point advantage. The Blue’s lead was stretched to 6 points following three points from Darragh Walsh, 2 frees and a long range point from midfield. Borris-Iliegh responded with two pointed frees either side of points from Darragh Walsh and Christopher Ryan, leaving Éire Óg with a half time lead of 10-0 to 0-04.
Johnny Cahalan was introduced in place of Aidan Healy for Nenagh at half-time and made an instant impact, with a point in the 31st minute. This was followed immediately by the opening goal of the game, as Christopher Ryan found the back of the net following an excellent solo run from the half forward line. Borrisloeigh responded with a free, however a Willie Bolger goal in the 35th minute, followed by two quick frees from Darragh Walsh would leave the score at 2-11 to 0-05 after 40 minutes, and left Borris-Iliegh with a 14 point deficit to close. Borris-Iliegh would score 4 of the next 6 points, with David Cleary and David Hackett, a 38th minute substitute for Adam Carey, scoring the Blue’s points. A 55th minute goal for Borris’ set up an exciting finish, however they had simply left themselves too much to do. Nenagh’s defence held firm as Borris’ went looking for more goals, managing only two more points, leaving the final score at 2-15 to 1-11.

Intermediate Camogie League
Drom & Inch 0-7 Nenagh Eire Og 0-4
With both teams already through to the league semi finals today’s game was all about deciding the final positions in the group and with the result going Drom & Inch’s way they now finish in first place with ourselves in second position.
With heavy rain over the previous 24 hours making underfoot conditions difficult this game was never going to be one of free flowing hurling and scores were always going to be at a premium and this proved the case today as both sides battled hard throughout.
Nenagh got the dream start as within the first 30 seconds Leah Sheedy pointed to open the visitors account but Drom levelled proceedings in the 7th minute with a fine point of their own. Nenagh were creating chances and will be disappointed to see so many of them drop short into the willing hands of the Drom goalkeeper who herself had a great game. In fact in the 16th minute she proved her worth after Caroline Browne fed Maeve Coffey with possession and she blasted a ball towards the top corner but somehow the net minder got her hurley to it. Two minutes later Drom took the lead from a pointed free only for Ciara McGrath to slot one of her own over to leave the half time score at 0-2 apiece.
Drom blasted out of the blocks at the start of the second period and shot four unanswered points between the 36th and 41st minutes. This opened up a gap that, try as Nenagh might, they could never close. Things looked like they were going to get worse for the Blues when a Drom forward pulled on a breaking ball only for Niamh Sheridan in the Nenagh goal to make a fine stop. The ball was worked up the other end of the field and after great work from Sarah Kennedy, Caroline Brown saw her goal bound effort blocked once again by the Drom goalkeeper.
To be fair Nenagh battled hard and manager Paul Henry, while disappointed with the result, with be thrilled with the work rate of his charges who time and again forced their opponents into over carrying. One such time was in the 48th minute out on the sideline and Ciara McGrath brilliantly fired over the resultant free. Alanna Morris added another pointed free after she herself was fouled to narrow the gap to two. Drom pointed themselves shortly after and there was time for some late drama as Alanna Morris fed the impressive Caroline Browne possession and her screaming shot went agonisingly across the face of the Drom goals.
The semi final of this competition takes place on Saturday April 9th at 12pm in the Camogie Grounds, The Ragg when Silvermines will provide the opposition
Nenagh: Niamh Sheridan, Amy Heffernan, Aileen Duggan, Kate O Connor, Kristen Howard, Zoey Gratton, Emer Ryan, Ciara McGrath, Rachel O Connor, Caroline Browne, Alanna Morris, Maeve Coffey, Holly O Brien, Vanessa Tynan, Leah Sheedy. Subs Sarah Kennedy for Tynan, Hazel Coffey for O Brien and Laura Tierney for Sheedy.
