Hard luck to our senior hurlers who lost out to JK Brackens on Sunday last in the Co Preliminary Quarter Final. The score in the game was 3 – 17 to 1 – 19, James Mackey getting the first half goal. This defeat ends our interest in this year’s championship, thanks to players and management for the work they put in all year.

Great progress has been made over the past number of weeks on the development of our new full sized pitch. This is a huge project and will take a number of weeks before it is complete. The costs for this are unfortunately also huge and we are continuing to seek funding for this phase of the project. Our membership packages are still open and we thank everyone who has contributed to this to date. If you would like to avail of any of these packages, please contact any club officer or committee member for more information. Donations can also be made electronically – bank details available from Anne Kennedy & John Tooher. Please be sure to include your details if transferring money to this dedicated fundraising account.
We extend our sympathies to the Gratton family on the death of Roger Gratton last week. Roger’s niece and nephew, Zoey and Adam, are members of our senior camogie and hurling teams while his brother Paul is one of our valued stewards on match days in MacDonagh Park. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Under 9 boys who played Toomevara on Saturday
Our Under 11 hurlers travelled to Kilkenny last weekend to play O’Loughlin Gaels. It was a great day out for the boys and a wonderful opportunity to travel as a group and build lasting bonds. Thanks very much to John for driving the bus, a true gentleman. Thanks to Cyril for orchestrating the sing song on the bus, terrific entertainment. No training on Wednesday of this week, back training Friday evening at 6p.m. New players born in 2011 and 2012 welcome to come along and give it a try. Contact 0874086439 for more details.
Our Under 13A panel were out against Kilruane in Dolla last week in the North Semi Final and what a battle it was with the game going to extra time to decide the winner. Despite a heroic effort from our boys it wasn’t to be and that ended the 2022 season for this group. Best wishes to Kilruane in the rest of the competition.
Our Under 13C panel played Shannon Rovers last week in their North Semi Final and despite being well behind at half time our boys rallied fiercely in the second half to bring the margin back to just two points but in the end Shannon Rovers were more clinical in front of goal and took the spoils. Best wishes to Shannon Rovers in the remainder of the competition.
Thanks to the boys and their parents from both groups for all of their commitment and continued support since last November. Thanks to the Under 13 management group for their time and running of these two groups this season. Final training Friday at 6.30, it will be a fun session to close.
Our U15s play Ballina in the North quarter final on Thursday at 6pm in Newport – best of luck to the boys in this game.
Following a great victory over Toomevara in the North semi-final last Monday week, our boys faced Roscrea in the North final on Monday evening in Dolla. In what turned out to be a very competitive and hard fought final, the Nenagh boys came out on top on a scoreline of 1 – 15 to 3 – 4 , Jake Houlihan getting the Nenagh goal. Roscrea pushed the boys all the way but the Nenagh lads held their nerve and were always able to respond to the Roscrea scores.
Well done to all players and management team on this fine victory. A delighted Sam O’Farrell accepted the cup on behalf of his teammates from Joe McCarthy from the North Board. The boys now move onto the Co Quarter Final against the West champions (Knockavilla or Golden), this game will take place in the coming weeks.
U17 training continues every Monday and Wednesday at 6.50pm unless there is a match.
A very happy group following the North Final win on Monday evening.
