Disappointment as three teams exit the North championship, a nominee for the Bord Gáis Energy under-21 hurling team of the year and the senior camogs gear up for a crucial championship game. Once again this week’s notes are at breaking point, with news on the Blues
Our senior hurlers’ interest in this year’s Hibernian Inn North Tipperary senior hurling championship ended at the semi-final stage in Templederry on Saturday last following a disappointing 3-18 to 4-10 defeat to neighbours Kiladangan. In truth, the scoreline flattered Éire Óg however all is not lost as we now have a county championship quarter-final to look forward to which will give John Fitzgerald’s men a chance to banish the memory of this game.

Our junior-A footballers were beaten by Inane Rovers 2-7 to 0-7 on Friday evening Puckane under lights in the quarter-final of the North Tipperary championship. The Blues’ had prepared diligently for this clash including playing Clerihan in a challenge game however the men from Roscrea proved too strong on this occasion.
Massive thank you to @nenagheireog for travelling down to play us in a football challenge last night, best of luck in your season from all at Clerihan GAA

Our senior camogie side face Clonoulty Rossmore in MacDonagh Park, Nenagh this Saturday in their final match of the round robin stage of the county championship. Having beaten Borris-Ileigh and losing to Éire Óg Annacarty in their last game, this match is a must win if the girls are going to qualify for the county semi-final. Your support would be appreciated by all concerned.
I’m the Boss!
Ger Morris shows who is in charge as he orders young lads away from behind the goals in the under-16 clash with Roscrea.

Our under-16 A hurlers took part in two outstanding games of hurling this week when they drew with Roscrea in their North Tipperary quarter-final on Monday evening, following a last minute equalising free for Roscrea. The replay on Friday evening in Nenagh was another intense battle with both teams leaving it all on the field. It was not to be our night though with the visitors running out three-point winners on a scoreline of Nenagh Éire Óg 3-07 Roscrea 2-13. We wish them the best of luck in their semi-final. We would like to thank the boys, their families and mentors Noel Coffey and Donie O Brien for the massive amount of work that they put in all year. Great things ahead for these lads.
The under-13 team had a good win over Silvermines in Dolla on Wednesday and will play Toomevara in Nenagh this Wednesday evening.
The under-8s hosted a blitz in MacDonagh Park on Saturday morning and welcomed Newport, Kiladangan and Burgess Duharra. With over 70 girls in action in total this was a fantastic morning’s entertainment. All girls got to play four games in a fun, non-competitive environment. Our thanks go to the visiting clubs for helping make this such a huge success and to the kind parents who supplied food for our guests.
Under-6 and under-8 training continues this Thursday at 6pm.
