The curtain was drawn on the Under 11 boys season last week with a final session of fun filled games and laughter.
Éire Óg stars Barry Heffernan and Shane Hennessy were kind enough to attend and hand out some goodies to the boys at the end of the session. Thanks to both gentlemen for their time on the night.
Sincere thanks to our fabulous Covid officer’s Claire and Eileen who kept everyone safe and aligned to guidelines right throughout the season.
Behind every hurling & football season are a group of coaches who look after the children and ensure they are developing their skills while enjoying being part of the set up, thanks to Niall, Kieran, Cyril, Darragh, Willie and all the parents who helped out during the season.
Best wishes to the boys going up to U13 in 2022, we look forward to welcoming boys up from U9 in 2022 and we have no doubt that the boys who will be second year under 11 will be excellent role models for the younger boys joining us in the next season.
If any boy has a friend or school pal who would like to come along and try out hurling or gaelic football drop Niall a text or send a message to the club social media sites.
Keep the hurl in hand in the off season and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
The Camogie AGM took place online last Thursday and the Chairman, Tom Boland, opened the meeting by welcoming everyone in attendance.
His main message was that after what has been a rollercoaster year with regard to Covid and our health system and all that goes with it, we were very lucky to be involved in an outdoor sport all the way through. The fact that we have had no outbreaks in our club speaks volumes of the great work our various Covid supervisors have done all year long. It is important to recognize the overall Eire Og club set-up in this regard, as the club committee took decisions e.g. to close the complex when case numbers were high in the schools. He thanked the coaches and parents for diligently complying with our Covid protocols.
The Chairman reflected on the year and the various developments across the club. He mentioned the success of the Under 12s reaching the County Finals, with one team returning home County champions, the huge numbers attending at Under 6s, and the U16s reaching the County Semifinal. He concluded by thanking the Senior Management Team of Greg Browne, Pat McCormack and Caitriona Morris for all their work during the year. Pat and Caitriona have both decided to step away and the club wishes them both well in their future endeavours. Caitriona has volunteered for 11 years with the senior team, as well as various roles on the committee, and she will be sorely missed.
The meeting concluded with the committee looking forward to 2022 with great optimism. We will return to having a minor team in next year’s championship, hopefully two u14 teams and two u12 teams. We have a coach lined up to go into the convent school and will work with the Convent secondary school to avail of the use of their pitch again.
The Chairman emphasised that these are the building blocks required in order to increase the numbers of girls playing camogie in Nenagh.
