Under 15 Football
Upcoming fixtures for Under 15 football, we play Silvermines on March 30th 6:15pm in Dolla and on April 13th we play Toomevara at 6:30pm in Nenagh
We played our first match of the year on St Patrick’s day in Nenagh against Knockavilla in the league.
It was a keenly contested affair with some excellent camogie played by both teams. Nenagh had a good lead at half time, but Knockavilla came back strongly and took the lead with time almost up, Nenagh scored a late point to get a deserved draw.
Great credit is due to both teams. We have a bye next weekend and our next match is away to Annacarty.
There was contrasting fortunes for our U14 teams this week:
U14 – 2nd Team
Our second team travelled to play Holycross away on Sunday afternoon. Some fine play throughout the team saw our girls come away with an 8 point win, thanks to some fine scoring from Aisling Ryan in particular. Final score 7-6 to 5-4.

U14 – 1st Team
Later that evening, our first team played Slieve Feilim in their U14 A Round 2 game. We matched them toe-to-toe in the first half, but came in at the break 2-4 to 1-2 down.
The girls fought hard in the second half, but could not register the scores. The strength of the Slieve Feilim girls showed in the latter stages and they pulled away to make the final score 3-7 to 1-3.
Training for all U14’s continues Monday 6-7pm and Thursday 7-8pm.
