Santa Claus makes a special visit to MacDonagh Park, the juveniles collect their medals while the club gears up for AGM 2018. Once again, this week’s notes are bursting, with news on the Blues!
Santa Claus Visits MacDonagh Park
On Saturday morning the juvenile club held their annual Christmas party for our brilliant young boys and girls and amazingly, the big man himself showed up with presents for everyone. They all promised him that they’d be extremely good between now and Christmas Day so parents that means beds will be dressed, bedrooms kept clean and tidy and dishes washed while homework will be completed with a smile on their faces! A special thank you goes to Santa Claus himself who made the morning so magical and memorable for our juveniles.

The parents and mentors of our juvenile teams had their Christmas party in the Hibernian Inn on Saturday evening and we’re glad to report that everyone had a great night reminiscing on the year just gone while excitedly looking forward to the year to come. Strangely, no photographs have been made available from the night!
Juveniles Collect Their Medals from 2018
Congratulations to our under-11, under-13 and Community Games teams who were presented with their medals on Saturday in the complex. A special presentation was made to the All-Ireland winning Community Games management team in acknowledgement of their hard work and commitment to the club. Our thanks go to Tipperary senior hurler Jake Morris for the inspirational talk he gave to the boys and his help in presenting the medals, Danielle and the Hi-B staff for the excellent refreshments afterwards and Roisín at The Watch Centre for all of her help with medals and trophies. Well done to all involved and we can’t to see everyone again in 2019.
Tipperary Sports Partnership and Nenagh Éire Óg in association with the TV programme, Operation Transformation, are once again holding a 5K Family Fun Walk on Saturday January 12th at 11am. This is the ideal way to begin the new year while diligently sticking to the new year’s resolution. We will have further information closer to the date.
For those enthusiastic walkers who can’t wait until the new year the club organises a walk every Tuesday evening at 7pm outside the complex for a stroll and everyone is more than welcome to participate.
There is also a planned St. Stephen’s Day walk at 10.30am from the complex to work off the turkey and stuffing. Again everyone is welcome to come along.
