Ger Gavin Memorial Tournament
The inaugural Ger Gavin Memorial Tournament took place on Saturday last in MacDonagh Park and proved to be a great success. O’Loughlin Gaels won out on the day, just pipping Clooney Quinn in the winner takes all final round. This was a great afternoon of hurling and our thanks to Moycarkey Borris, O’Loughlin Gaels, Clooney Quinn and our own U21 squad for making this happen.

Following the hurling, teams and supporters gathered in the hall where Club Chairman John Tooher spoke of the high regard people all over the GAA had for the late Ger Gavin and how he is sorely missed throughout the GAA Community. Gerry Gavin, on behalf of the Gavin family, thanked all who made this day possible before presenting the trophy to the O’Loughlin Gaels captain.
We would like to thank the Gavin family for their support in organising this tournament and to everyone who helped out to make this the successful and special day it was, a fitting tribute to Ger who worked tirelessly for Nenagh Éire Óg.

Work continues on the new development with the laying out of the new field well underway. A big few weeks now lie ahead as we reach the final stages of this phase of the project. The costs continue to be a major part of this and so we are continuing to seek funding for this phase of our development.
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.
The club are planning to run Community Bingo in the Éire Óg complex during the winter. This will take place on Sunday nights and we are looking for volunteers to help run this – if you are interested in getting involved one Sunday night per month please contact Matt Lillis 087 6813605 or Anne Kennedy 087 1336024. This should be a great social event for our community through the winter months.

Under 7 boys closed their season in great style with a fun morning last Saturday, the highlight of the morning was the boys beating the coaches in a game of tug-of-war! Each boy has improved greatly throughout the year which is brilliant to see. A special mention and good luck to the boys going up to the U9’s next year. Finally, thanks to Alan Kelly and all the coaches who made the year run so smoothly and to the parents/guardians who gave up their Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings to bring the boys training or to matches. We hope to see all the boys and more coming back next year!
Under 7s who finished up with a morning of fun and games last Saturday.
On Saturday morning our U9 hurlers travelled to Monaleen for some really competitive games. Conditions were tough but the boys adjusted admirably with some fantastic performances all round. Great improvements from all of the boys since the start of the year which is great to see. A huge thanks to Monaleen for hosting what were our last games of the year. Next weekend the boys have their final meet-up of the year with lots of fun and games planned at Adventure World in Nenagh College in recognition of their fantastic efforts all year on the hurling and football field. Well done boys and keep up the practice at home!
