Hardluck to the Tipperary footballers, Bartley Ryan is The Toughest while we look forward to our AGM. All of this and more in this week’s news on the Blues
Commiserations go to the Tipperary footballers who were defeated by Mayo in the All-Ireland semi-final on Sunday afternoon in Croke Park. They fought to the bitter end and in doing so, honoured the victims of Bloody Sunday 100 years ago with determination and dignity. By winning the Munster championship they brought huge joy to a lot of people in this bleak year.
Bartley Ryan – The Toughest
All of us in the club wish to congratulate Bartley Ryan whose modeling career has begun with a bang. Bartley is the face of The Toughest Season, a new photographic book chronicling the 2020 GAA year, which is on sale on the Sportsfile website, is a collaboration between AIB, Sportsfile, the GAA and the Camogie Association. All proceeds from the sale of the book go towards AIB’s charity partners; AGE NI, Alone, FoodCloud, Soar & Pieta House.
Anyone wishing to have their copy of the book signed by Bartley are asked to ring his agent Marion to book an appointment and in some cases, Bartley will happily pose for photographs with a lucky select few autograph hunters.
The club are delighted to announce that Ger McCarthy has been appointed as junior-A manager for 2021. Ger will be aided by Paul Lillis, John Phelan, David Minogue and Derek Lillis. We wish to thank outgoing manager Eddie Tucker for all of his diligent hard work over the last two years with this team and we extend our best wishes to Bryan Darcy in his new role with Cashel King Cormacs.
The club’s AGM will take place this Thursday via Zoom. All members should received a link to the meeting in the coming days. If you haven’t yet received the link by Wednesday, please contact any committee member. A digital copy of the AGM booklet will be distributed on Monday and again, if you don’t receive or indeed would prefer a hard copy, please contact club secretary Catherine McTiernan.

Friday night was the final training session and the end to the 2020 hurling and football season for our super under-10 boys.
Thank you to Niall Cahill, Kieran Mularkey and the team of coaches who have put in tremendous effort all year in very difficult circumstances to bring this great bunch of boys along.
Sincere thank you to the Covid officers Claire Walsh, Elaine Ryan and Eileen Jones who facilitated a safe training environment for the boys all season.
Wishing the boys and everyone involved with this group a very Happy Christmas, we hope Santa is good to all.
Try get in a few pucks with the hurley every day boys during the offseason. We look forward to seeing you all in the new year.
John Gunnell, John Tooher, Chairman Nenagh Éire Óg, Enda Costello, Willie Greene, Coach Bertie Sherlock, Liam Heffernan, Coach Conor Hennessy and the wonderful boys from St Mary’s B.N.S.
St Mary’s Boys Primary School
We at Nenagh Éire Óg are well aware that the contribution made to our club and the GAA in general by our schools and teachers could never be overestimated. It was wonderful to meet with John Gunnell, Principal of St. Mary’s Boys National School and Willie Greene, Principal of St. Joseph’s C.B.S. Primary today and be able to reward them for all of their hard work with some necessary equipment, kindly sponsored by Costello Oil. We hope that the boys have fun hurling in school and that we’ll see them all at MacDonagh Park soon. Please ‘Shop Local’ this Christmas. It’s local companies like Costello Oil that keep the show on the road for our clubs, dance and drama groups.
