Thanks to everyone who supported the 2023/24 Tipperary Clubs draw which started last weekend. Thanks also to our draw co-ordinator Catherine Kennedy and to all our promoters for all the work put in making this a great success once again for the club.
Congrats to our two winners on the night – Sean Moore who won €500 and Hugh Maloney who won €300. The first of the new weekly draws will take place next Friday 1st Sept with the next monthly draw on Fri 8th.
It’s still not too late to join the draw – please contact any senior, juvenile or camogie officer for info on joining. Or you can also join online on the link below – and remember to give Nenagh Éire Óg as your club.
Our seniors lost out to Mullinahone by 8 points in the Co Championship last weekend. This result means we finish third in the group and will now play Thurles Sarsfields in the Preliminary Quarter Final – this game will be played on Saturday 9th Sept at 5pm in Borrisoleigh.
Best of luck to our U19s who play Toomevara in the North semi final on this Wed, 30th August, at 6.45pm in MacDonagh Park.

New Field Update
It’s great to see the work recommence on the new field during the week following the recent run of bad weather.
Sand was spread earlier in the week and with remainder of the work involving adding and levelling more sand and further drainage, we will be hoping the weather stays favourable to complete this work.
