The senior hurlers gear up for the county final, the under-15s reach the plate final while the Camogie club hosted a massive blitz on Saturday morning. Once again this week’s notes are congested, with news on the Blues
Our senior hurlers travel to Semple Stadium on Sunday next to play West side Clonoulty Rossmore in the Tipperary Water county final. The sides last met on August 12th in The Ragg in the group stages of the county senior championship with The Blues fortunate to come away with a two-point victory, 1-20 to 1-18. John Fitzgerald and his men will have it all to do if they are to repeat that feat. This game throws in at 15:30 and we would love to see you all there decked out in your sky blue and navy.
This year our players and management have been putting in a monumental effort to try and capture the county senior hurling title. Once again, no stone has been left unturned to ensure that our players are prepared as best as they possibly can be however, with such efforts comes serious financial strains and to help ease the burden a Players’ Training Fund has been set up and if you would like to contribute please contact John (087 950 0912) or Enda (086 174 2530)
Your support is very much appreciated by the players and everyone involved.

The under-8 Camogie girls’ year came to an end on Saturday in MacDonagh Park when we hosted a blitz. Having started in the first week of February this year, with the hugely successful Éire Ógre camp, the girls have continued to train in high numbers. Yesterday, we had 34 girls representing the club. We welcomed clubs from Kildangan, Portroe, Newport, Borris-Ileigh and Doon. Over one hundred girls turned up and played highly entertaining Camogie. Each team played three games and after the club kindly presented each girl with a medal. The parents from the club served up wonderful food as always inside in the complex to thank our guests for travelling for the blitz. Huge thanks must go to the parents for all their hard work and dedication to this group all year. Training for the under-6 and under-8 girls has finished for the year. We will have our end of year party in a few weeks in Nenagh College. Any girl who was missing yesterday and the under-6 girls will receive their medals there.
The Nenagh Éire Óg minor Camogie team had a fine win today away to an excellent Borris-Ileigh. Conor Ryan’s charges have improved steadily through the group stage with experienced players like Ella Carey, Caroline Browne and Rachel O Connor gelling well with the younger stars like Michelle Barry and Katie Morris. They have now qualified for the county quarter final to be held next weekend. A special note of praise must go to the referee on the day, Tipperary Camogie star Caoimhe Burke who gave an outstanding display of mature refereeing which belies her young years. She is a credit to her family, her club and to Tipperary Camogie and a role model for women to join the refereeing ranks as she smiled her way through a game that she had full control of.
