The second supplementary draw of our Community Lotto took place following the lotto draw held on 21st Dec. Congratulations to our three lucky winners Bernie Hennessy, Enda Costello and James Cullen who each received €500. Our chosen charity for this draw was Nenagh Lions Club who also received €500. Chairman, John Tooher, recently presented this cheque to Rose Walsh, President of Nenagh Lions Club. The draw for our next chosen charity will take place in the coming weeks.

Helping the Community
The club has re-activated our COVID-19 Community Response Team in light of the re-introduction of Level 5 restrictions.
If any member of our community requires support during these difficult times, prescriptions and groceries collected or if we can support you in any way please contact our Community Covid Officer, Bartley Ryan, on 086 735 8359 and a member of our club will be only too delighted to come to your assistance.
Similarly, if any member of our club wants to volunteer to help out please contact Bartley and your name will be added to our response team.
Due to the recent introduction of Level 5 restrictions we would like to remind all our members that there will be no return to training in January and that the club grounds and complex are currently off limits.
We would like to extend our sympathies to the family, friends and the Marlfield GAA club on the recent death of Theo English. Theo spent a time with Nenagh Éire Óg in the early 90s as coach with the senior team. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
