Our seniors win their opening county championship match, our Féile na nGael side were unfortunate to lose the county final while Sarah Quigley looks forward to a league final. All this and more in this week’s news on the Blues
Our senior hurlers recorded a 2-21 to 1-15 win over Upperchurch Drombane in the opening round of the Tipperary Water county championship on Saturday in Dolla. Jake Morris and Tommy Heffernan scored Nenagh’s goals. For a full match report from this game please click here. The lads now play neighbours Burgess at 3pm next Sunday in Dolla in the North Tipperary senior hurling championship.
Our thanks go to Martin Ryan for the photographs from the senior match at the weekend. You can check out his other fantastic photos on Instagram (martysphotos91) or Twitter (@DammitMarty)
Really looking forward to seeing three games in the Tipperary senior club hurling championship today. And, never let it be forgotten: the inter-county game is the icing, but the club game is the actual cake. @TipperaryGAA #tipperary

All-Ireland Freshers Hurling Final
Congratulations to Mark O’Farrell and the University of Limerick fresher hurlers who captured the All-Ireland final on Thursday last defeating Limerick Institute of Technology 3-17 to 1-20. Commiserations go to Adam Healy and Conor McCarthy who were part of the L.I.T. side.
Our weekly walks continue this Tuesday at 7pm from MacDonagh Park. There are two options for walkers, a 5km and 8km route and everyone is welcome to take part regardless of fitness levels or if you’re from Nenagh or not.
Commiserations go to our under-14 side who were in hard luck in the county Féile na nGael final in Clonoulty over the weekend. They lost out by two-points, 2-8 to 2-6, against a superb Dúrlas Óg side and we wish Dúrlas Óg the very best of luck in the All-Ireland Féile na nGael finals.
Hard luck to our Community Games team who put up an excellent show against Toomevara on Sunday evening but unfortunately lost out to a superb Greyhounds side. Best of luck to Toomevara in the remainder of the competition.
Our under-6 boys took to the fields for the first time on Saturday morning. What a wonderful turnout. We are all looking forward to the journey this team will take over the next number of years as life-long friendships are made between mentors, parents and players.
In a good competitive match the senior team lost to Drom & Inch on Sunday by two points. Final score 1-9 to 0-10. Next up is Clonoulty Rossmore in Nenagh next Sunday.
Everyone needed at training.
The league match scheduled against Burgess did not go ahead on Friday and will be re-fixed soon. Training Monday and Thursday at 6.30.
We played our first blitz in Portroe on Saturday where we fielded two teams. Both teams played some excellent camogie, especially the girls who were playing under-12 for the first time. Training continues on Mondays and Thursdays at 5.30pm at Éire Óg pitch. All including beginners are welcome to train.
Under-10 training continues every week at 5.30pm on Monday and Thursday evenings.
Under-6 & Under-8
Under-6 and Under-8 training takes place every Thursday 6pm to 7pm. Parents are encouraged to lend a hand. New members welcome.
Sarah Quigley from Nenagh started in goal for the Tipperary Intermediate team who won their All-Ireland league semi-final on Sunday against Westmeath on a score of 3-9 to 1-12.
Some registrations are still outstanding . Can those who have not yet signed up please do so this week through your team manager. This is important to ensure players are covered from an insurance perspective.
Come Dine With Me
Tickets for the Come Dine With Me fundraising event for the camogie club on the 27th of April in the Hibernian Inn will be distributed to players in the coming days. The committee would be delighted to see a large turnout to support this event on what promises to be a great night at the end of April.
