Our Under 19 hurlers bowed out of the championship on Wednesday evening last against a very strong Roscrea side. With only one player up to the age, Éire Óg fielded ten under 17’s in the starting lineup. In the first half of the match, these young players showed their metal and matched their older opponents in all areas of the field. When Roscrea did take a slight lead they were reined back by a well worked Nenagh goal. The start of the second half continued in the same vein as the first but gradually Roscrea began to dominate the game. Nevertheless this young Éire Óg side fought to the final whistle and despite a comfortable win by Roscrea this Nenagh team can be very proud of this performance which will stand to them in the Under 17 championship. We would like to thank the players and management for their dedication this year.
We extend our sympathies to the family of William Fogarty who sadly passed away last week. William was a great supporter of Nenagh Éire Óg and regularly attended our games. His daughter Mary Jo has been involved in various roles in the club over the past number of years, his grandson Ben is a member of the senior panel while his brother John is a valued worker in MacDonagh Park.

Nenagh Éire Óg Gaelic Games Youth Academy Summer camp
The Nenagh Éire Óg Gaelic Games Academy sponsored by Albany Home & Decor and A Sportsman’s Dream Gaelic Games Summer camp was held last week and it was a tremendous success with close to 100 children attending over the sun drenched few days. The coaching team in place were a real dream team with the children coming away from each day delighted with the camp. Thanks to Niall for organising the camp, to Pat for leading the event over the three days, to our county stars Sam O’Farrell, Grace O’Brien and Jake Morris for their support and time at the camp and to all the many brilliant coaches and helpers who made the camp the great event it was. Everyone at the camp also came together to wish Barry Heffernan a full recovery and we look forward to seeing him back in action for Nenagh Éire Óg and Tipperary.
