Over the past few weeks great work was undertaken by a number of people in the club to get the area ready for the work to start on the Hurling Wall – the work on this will now hopefully begin in the coming weeks. Tremendous work was also done by this group on the area around the inside field which is now ready to take games again when the time comes. It’s greatly encouraging to see this level of volunteerism within the club and we all really appreciate the time and work put in by this group.
In the coming weeks the club will be purchasing a new defibrillator which will be placed outside the complex and will be available for use by both the Clun and the Community. In July the Nenagh Éire Óg Community Walking group will climb Keeper Hill as a fundraiser to help with the cost of this. The events at the Euros over the weekend have highlighted the importance of a defibrillator both in clubs and in the community and as well as this fundraiser, all groups in the senior, juvenile and camogie clubs will be asked to help out with the purchase of this vital equipment.
Our Junior B group, pictured below, kickstarted the collection last Sunday morning and we thank them all for their great support.
The response from families to our fundraising initiative around the club development has been hugely positive and is going really well, everyone involved in the project have been genuinely humbled and impressed with the level positivity and eagerness of families to get behind and support the club on this significant journey. Please continue to make your donations, any amount is welcome and appreciated, reach out to your fundraising representative in order to obtain any details you may require in supporting the development. For anyone who would like to know more about our club development ambitions please see previous weeks club notes or the club website for details on how you can support.
The lotto has always been one of our main fundraisers and with our current club developments it is of vital importance to us now that everyone continues to row in behind our lotto and we continue to increase the Nenagh Eire Og online club lotto subscriptions. We are asking our juvenile families and supporters to play our club lotto online. It costs just €2 per week to play safely online and there are different payment plans available. If your not in, you cant win! Please choose the ‘auto-renew’ option and also help family members who may not have an online presence to join. The link to join is available on the clubs web page so please sign up now and you will be included in the next draw.
All social media shares of lotto updates are appreciated and its wonderful to see family and friends from far and wide coming through in the weekly winners.
All families are asked to complete registration with www.Foireann.ie as soon as possible if you haven’t done so already. Details of how to complete this process have been shared via the various juvenile WhatsApp groups. Your co operation in getting these registrations complete as soon as possible is greatly appreciated and will be required in order to complete your child’s Covid self certification for return to play.
Membership should have been paid by May 31st to ensure that your child is covered by insurance. For Covid reasons we ask that any overdue membership being paid is put into an envelope, family details written thereon and handed to the lead coach at the training session.
Return To Play
We would ask all parents/guardians to observe and co-operate with all the Covid protocols that are in place in order to ensure a safe training environment for your children and family. Please ensure you complete the Covid pre training/match conformation on Foireann in advance of attending training or matches. Training slots – days and times have been issued on the various WhatsApp groups.
Please encourage the boys to practice when they can. Challenge matches have begun for most groups by now. The children will benefit greatly from these games and will develop & progress their match fitness and skills no end.
We hope to link in with some of the NÉÓ senior hurling team in the coming weeks and leverage their experience from when they were juvenile hurlers and how they developed their skills and passion for our games.
It’s a very exciting time for the club with huge developments taking place in the field at present. The physical changes around the club grounds are visible to all who have returned in the last number of weeks. These changes are the initial stages of the development work and indeed the footprint of the new hurling wall and astro pitch are clear to be seen. We will all be looking on in eager anticipation of the progress that will be made over the coming weeks. Remember to transfer your donations and let your funding representative know you have done so for receipt issuing purposes.
Éire Ógres 2021 / NÉÓ Nursery – Boys & Girls
Nenagh Eire Ógres camp ’21 continued for week three on Saturday morning last. The children enjoyed lots of games and skill challenges at the many fun Ógres challenge stations. We look forward to all of these new Ógres progressing to mainstream training in the NÉÓ Games Nursery.
Thanks again to Niall for organising this year’s Ógres camp and also to everyone who assisted in ensuring a safe and fun environment for the children to enjoy themselves. Thanks to EBS Nenagh New Mortgages for their kind sponsorship.
We can’t wait to have all the children back for the final week next Saturday morning for more fun and games. Parents/Guardians must remain for the hour.
After the Ógres camp we plan to move the children to Under 5 training. Anyone interested in joining the post Ógres Under 5 training – for boys born in 2016 planning to attend should contact Erica on 0868774496. Any girl born in 2015 or if they have turned 5 already can contact Paul on 0864692641. Please make contact as soon as you can as an online health questionnaire needs to be completed before taking part. Erica and Paul will also add people to the appropriate WhatsApp group to keep you informed about the Under 5 group.
For any parents who plan to take a coaching role with the Under 5 group must complete two steps, firstly Garda vetting must be completed and secondly an online Safeguarding course. These can be accessed on the following links.
Safeguarding course- https://learning.gaa.ie/safeguarding -this will bring you to it on the GAA site. It’s a refresher course as that’s all that’s available at the moment.
Garda vetting – you cannot be involved as a coach or mentor in any juvenile coaching set up without your GAA Garda vetting being up to date so please apply asap https://gaa.flowforma.com/Lists/Forms/NewForm.aspx?FlowId=7
