Well done to our U21 hurlers who defeated Roscrea on Sunday by 3 points, 19 points to 16. The boys led from start to finish but were pressed all the way by a strong Roscrea team. Jamie Cottrell was our leading scorer with 7 points with the impressive O’Farrell brothers scoring 5 from play between them.
This win means that the boys have topped the group and now play Kiladangan in the semi final – this game is due to be played next Sunday at 2pm in MacDonagh Park. Tickets for this game can be bought on the link below – this link will be available on our social media sites during the week. There will also be a tap and go service at the gate.

Congratulations to Tony Tierney who is one the 26 people who will be honoured with a Laochra Gael GAA award on Sunday next in the Dome in Thurles. These awards are presented to honour people over the age of 70 who have given significant service to the GAA in various capacities.
Tony played for many years with Nenagh Éire Óg and was part of both the 1957 and 1964 teams who won North senior championships. He went on to be a selector and coach to teams when his playing days were over.
We wish Tony and his family every good wish on the day.
The preparatory work is now completed on the new field. This has included the removal of all trees and shrubs, the crushing of all the concrete paths and the recovery of all the service ducting and all the electric lamp posts.
While the original intention was to have the field prepared and sown by the latest the end of September, this unfortunately did not happen with the recent wet weather intervening. The site is now closed until early spring 2023 when hopefully this phase of the develpment will be completed.
We are asking that those who still intend to financially support this phase of the project by joining our Membership programme do so as soon as possible by contacting any club officer or committee member for more information. Donations can also be made electronically – bank details below.
Please be sure to include your details if transferring money to this dedicated fundraising account and notify Anne Kennedy or John Tooher to advise of the transfer in order for receipts and membership data to be updated.

Nenagh Éire Óg together with Albany Home Decor & A Sportsmans Dream were very proud and delighted to have the 5 local schools attend McDonagh Park last week in the glorious sunshine to play in the 2022 Nenagh Parish Schools Football Blitz. 160 children graced the field and had a wonderful morning of football and fun. Children got to make new friends and indeed have some friendly rivalry with their school pals as pupils were mixed across the teams. Sincere thanks to Tom Gleeson, Shane Hennessy, Pat McCormack & the great John Kennedy for all of the organising. This event was such a success that plans are afoot for a similar Blitz in early 2023 so keep practicing everyone.
