Disappointment for our under-21 hurlers, the AGM is fixed for Thursday 13th December while a large number of our juveniles represent North Tipperary. All this and more in this week’s news on the Blues
Nenagh Éire Óg 0-12 Kilruane MacDonagh’s 0-16
Our under-21 hurlers exited the championship this afternoon in Gardiner Park, Borrisokane following a physical yet sporting encounter with Kilruane MacDonagh’s on a scoreline of 0-16 to 0-12. The low scoreline belies the fact that this was a highly entertaining encounter and both sides are to be credited for the ferocious, determined tackling and skilful performance on a beautiful, sunny afternoon. Kilruane MacDonagh’s will now meet Toomevara in the North Tipperary final. The club wish to thank the management team of Martin Morris, Phil Hennessy, Barry Heffernan and Michael McNamara and the panel of players for all their efforts this year.
Annual General Meeting
The club’s AGM will take place on Thursday, December 13th at 8pm in the club house. Motion and nomination forms are available from the club secretary, Anne Kennedy, or they can also be collected from the notice board in the complex. The deadline for return of these forms is November 22nd.
Get Well Soon Tommy
Club stalwart Tommy Mulcahy is feeling a little under the weather at the moment due to illness and everyone in Nenagh Éire Óg wishes him a speedy recovery.
North Tipperary Inter-Divisional Squads
Well done to our boys on the North Tipperary inter-divisional squads. Both under-13 and under-14 teams played the first two rounds this week and will continue hurling for the next two weekends.
The under-15 tournament will be held on December 1st. We have nine players spread over both the under-13 Peadar Cummins panels (Mason Cawley, Filip McIntyre, Cian Connolly, Zac Keller, Keenan Rice, Sam O Farrell, Aodhán O Connor, Seán McNamara, Jack McLoughlin) two for the under-14 Roger Ryan tournament (Conor Tierney, Taurai Shayanewako) and four on the under-15s (Aaron McLoughlin, Tom Kennedy, Dermot McTiernan, Jamie Kennedy). The best of luck to North Tipperary teams in all upcoming matches.
Cumann na mBunscol
Best wishes to Gaelscoil Nenagh who play in the Cumann na mBunscol finals this week in Semple Stadium. The under-13 C LGFA team face St. Joseph’s, Tipperary on 11:10am while the under-11 C football side play Fethard at 12noon. Both of these fixtures are on Thursday 22nd November.
Former Nenagh Éire Óg hurler Barry Coffey continues to make waves in soccer this week as he captained the Irish under-19s side who defeated Belgium 1-2. Barry capped a fine performance with Ireland’s opening goal which you can see in the video above. Barry was also interviewed by Celtic View where he mentioned his love of hurling, Emma Watson and Lady Gaga! You can read this piece here.
