Our Under 9 boys had a great morning in MacDonagh park on Saturday where they took on JK Brackens in three very entertaining football games.
Congratulations to Barry Grace who stepped into the breach to make his Under 9 debut for the blitz. Barry was on fire in the goal despite some very dodgy kick-outs and almost saved a number of goals, well done Barry, you were awesome.
Thanks to JK Brackens for making the journey to Nenagh and for providing very good opposition.

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 the camera shot, caught and is kicked out the right.
Any child from Nenagh 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 Friday 13th August.
Work on the new hurling wall is well underway. These are very exciting times for the entire club.

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.
