Our seniors and junior-As qualify for the county semi-finals while our under-15s end the season with a defeat to Ballina. All this and more in this week’s news on the Blues
In the battle of the Young Irelanders, our senior hurlers defeated Éire Óg Annacarty Donohill on Saturday afternoon in The Ragg in the FBD Insurance county quarter-final on a 4-15 to 1-8 scoreline. Nenagh got the perfect start when a Jake Morris effort was brilliantly blocked by Darragh Mooney but the Annacarty net-minder could do nothing to stop Conor Hennessy sticking the rebound home for the opening goal of the game inside the opening fifteen seconds. Morris himself got in on the goalscoring act with two of his own while Andrew Coffey added the fourth deep in the second half. We wish a speedy recovery to Shane Hennessy who were forced off early due to injury. We play Kiladangan in the county semi-final this Sunday at 1:45pm in Semple Stadium while Borris-Ileigh play Kilruane MacDonagh’s in the other semi-final at 3:30pm.
Our junior-A hurlers had a fantastic win over Skeheenarinky in Leahy Park, Cashel on Sunday last in the county quarter-final on a 2-14 to 1-15 scoreline. Killian Malone got Nenagh’s opening goal while Craig Hilmi added the second. The lads have been drawn to play West side Arravale Rovers in the county semi-final in Templederry at 4pm Saturday.
Our under-15 hurlers finished their year on Sunday morning when they were beaten by Ballina in the hurling plate final in Ballina 1-20 to 2-8. We wish to thank the entire panel of players, their mentors, parents and guardians for all their hard work this year and many lifelong memories have been created in 2019 and we look forward to many more in 2020.
Our under-8 boys travelled to Sixmilebridge Saturday morning last to play Sixmilebridge of Clare and Clarinbridge of Galway. Four teams travelled from Éire Óg with all teams doing extremely well. There was great excitement over the past few weeks over the return visit to Sixmilebridge. Thanks to our hosts for providing food for all the visitors.
