Our senior hurlers will play Newport in the first round of the North championship on Thursday evening next in Portroe at 7pm. This game, like all North Tipp adult games, will be an all ticket game and tickets must be collected before each game as per instructions through Whatsapp groups etc.
Hard luck to Barry, Jake and the Tipperary hurlers on losing out to Waterford in the All Ireland Quarter Final at the weekend. Hard luck also to Taurai, Sam and Mason who were on the Tipperary minor panel who lost out to Waterford in the Munster semi final last week.
There was no winner of Tuesday night’s lotto jackpot. The numbers drawn were 18, 19, 26 & 32. The three winners of the €50 lucky dips were:
1. Tom Keane c/o Kevin Connolly
2. Enda Sheedy
3. Maura Morkan
Next week’s lotto jackpot will be €6,300. Results of our weekly lotto draws are available on social media and on the club website. Please support our lotto by joining through the link on the website.
As part of our Community lotto draw which was launched last year, we have been donating €500 to a chosen charity every 10 weeks. To date we have donated to six local charities and the next charity to benefit from this will be the Children’s Ark Paediatric Unit in University Hospital, Limerick. Many children and families in the Nenagh/North Tipperary area benefit greatly from this unit and the juvenile and camogie clubs recently held a swap shop with the proceeds also going to this worthy charity.
We extend our sympathies to the family of Breda McCarthy who passed away at the weekend. Breda’s family have been involved with Nenagh Éire Óg over the years with her husband Jimmy a North senior medal winner in 1964 while her son Ger is the current manager of our Junior A team and grandson Conor is a member of the senior panel. Ar dheis De go raibh a h-anam.

Specsavers virtual kick about
Specsavers are running a national media campaign as part of their sponsorship of the GAA nationally and have asked for our support. They are looking for children to virtually pass a gaelic football from Killarney to Croke Park for the All-Ireland football final.
To take part a child receives a football from the left hand side of camera shot, caught and is kicked out the right.
Any child from Éire Óg who wishes to be put forward for it can do so by wearing their club gear and completing a video. The video can be posted on the WhatsApp groups or directly to the coaches of their group. If there is more than one video per group the coaches can decide on the best one.
We will send a few of our best videos to Specsavers. Creativity in the videos will help. Anyone interested please complete the video before Monday night.
Work on the new hurling wall is well underway. These are very exciting times for the entire club.
Any remaining donations can be paid over to your fundraising representative, any amount is welcome and appreciated, your fundraising representative will have any details you may require in supporting the development. Any remaining tax forms associated with your donation should be given to your fundraising representative along with detail of the names you wish to have included on the club development jigsaw wall.
The lotto has always been one of our main fundraisers and with our current club developments it is of vital importance to us now that everyone continues to row in behind our lotto and we continue to increase the Nenagh Eire Óg online club lotto subscriptions. We are asking our juvenile families and supporters to play our club lotto online. It costs just €2 per week to play safely online and there are different payment plans available. If you’re not in, you can’t win!
Please choose the ‘auto-renew’ option and also help family members who may not have an online presence to join. The link to join is available on the clubs web page so please sign up now and you will be included in the next draw.
Membership should have been paid by May 31st to ensure that your child is covered by insurance. For Covid reasons we ask that any overdue membership being paid is put into an envelope, family details written thereon and handed to the lead coach at the training session.
Return to Play
We would ask all parents/guardians to observe and co-operate with all the Covid protocols that are in place in order to ensure a safe training environment for your children and family.
