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 .

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.

The draw for the 2017 Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship takes place on Monday next, January 23rd between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m, and will be broadcast live on Tipp FM’s Extra Time show with Ronan Quirke. The Senior Championship, as in previous years, is divided in to Roinn I and Roinn II. Nenagh Éire Óg will this year be entered in to the Roinn I section of the draw, as a third seed.
In Roinn I the 16 participating teams are divided into four seeded groups with each club playing all other group members. Following three rounds of games, each group winner qualifies for the county quarter-finals while each group runner-up battles it out with the divisional champions (if not already qualified) in the preliminary quarter-finals. The last placed teams in each group play-off in two games with the individual game losers demoted to Roinn II for 2018.
Thirteen teams in all will compete in Roinn II in 2017. There is, however, a significant change to the format of Roinn II for the coming season. The teams, similarly to Roinn I, will be divided into four groups with the group winners and runners-up progressing to the quarter-finals of the Ó Riain Cup. The winner of that round of games qualifies for the semi-finals of the Ó Riain Cup, while both finalists are promoted to Roinn I for 2018.
The only way for Roinn II teams to compete for the Dan Breen Cup in 2017 is by winning their respective Divisional Championship, thereby qualifying for a preliminary quarter-final against a second-placed team from a Roinn I group.
Each club in Roinn I has been seeded based on their performances in the County Championship last year, the full seedings are as follows.
The draw for the North Championship will take place at a later date, usually in the Hibernian Inn, Nenagh.
Liam Cahill’s Tipperary Minor hurlers cruised to a second consecutive Munster Championship with a 17 point win over Limerick in the Gaelic Grounds, on a scoreline of 1-24 to 0-10 points. While several players for Tipperary put in fine scoring displays, best of all was our very own Jake Morris with an incredible 1-04 from play, which saw him named Man of the Match.
Pictured below is Jake with his man of the match award, alongside his grandfather and Nenagh Éire Óg Club President Jimmy Morris.
