Well done to Conor on this progress.
We extend our sympathies to the Whelahan family, Birr, on the sad passing of Susan Whelahan last week.
Susan’s husband Pat-Joe was manager of our Co Final winning team in 1995 while her son Brian managed our senior team in 2017. Ar dheis De go raibh a hanam.

Our girls played Boherlahan-Dualla on Saturday morning in Nenagh – three great challenge games played by all the girls.
We played in the Thomas Max Memorial tournament on Friday evening in Borrisoleigh. We fielded two teams and they both were really competitive against the hosts, Boherlahan-Dualla and Toomevara.
The girls finished up their season with a defeat to a strong Drom & Inch side in the county quarter final. The girls gave a good account of themselves and enjoyed their games.
Thanks to all the parents for their support in bringing the girls to training and games.
Co Development League Silver (12 a side) Final – Nenagh Éire Óg 2-10 Burgess Duharra 4-0
Our girls played some fantastic camogie to end their season with a win in their league final.
With a strong cross-field breeze, the Nenagh girls started strongly and were soon 1-2 to 0-0 up, following a great catch, turn and strike from Laura Gleeson. Nenagh dominated the first half thanks to some strong running and scoring from Player of the Match Sailí O’Connor and we went in 2-4 to 0-0 up at half time.
Burgess came out fighting and in a ten minute period after half time, they found the net 4 times, with no reply from Nenagh. Moving Laura Gleeson from full forward to half back steadied the ship for Nenagh and through some great play from the forwards, we picked off our points to pull clear and win by four points. Thanks and hard luck to the Burgess girls for a great game.
Under 13 winning team
After the game, Gráinne O’Leary Co Development Officer presented Nenagh captain Sailí O’Connor with the cup. A big thank you also to Cleary’s JKC Toymaster who provided well-deserved celebratory ice creams after the game.
