This week the annual Blues’ 10KM run and 5KM family walk took place while both the senior and junior-A hurlers were in action
The Blues Run/Running for Josie
The Ivers & Cullinan sponsored Blues 10KM run and family 5KM walk took place in MacDonagh Park on Sunday and once again the club were overwhelmed with the response as hundreds of people pounded the pavements of the town. This year our nominated charity was Running for Josie, a brilliant effort to raise €200,000 for Pieta House and Living Links by former Tipperary under-21 Munster winning captain and All-Ireland senior champion in 2010, Seamus Hennessy. Seamus spoke passionately to a captive audience afterwards where he thanked the club for the generous donation but reminded everyone that should Kilruane MacDonaghs and Nenagh Éire Óg meet in the championship the friendship will end! It was a fitting tribute to the popularity and high esteem that Seamus is held in that so many from his own club turned up to support the event.
The club would like to thank the army of volunteers who helped make the day such a huge success, Shane Connolly and his team for organising the event, Ivers & Cullinan for their kind sponsorship and of course all the runners and walkers.
First home in the 5KM run were Ben Walsh, Philip McIntyre and Ruairi Walsh. The full results and times from the 5KM run can be accessed here.
Aaron Quigley led the 10KM race home, quickly followed by Gary Scully and David Sheehan while Avril Hurley was the female winner. The full 10KM results can be accessed here.

A story from y’day @nenagheireog fun run..
A young boy told me: ‘’I’m nearly 11 now, like you were when your Mammy died and I know I’d be really sad if something happened her and I couldn’t speak to her again so thanks for doing this and trying to help people.”
Great wisdom! pic.twitter.com/fVR1pmVPQg

We extend our commiserations to Conor McCarthy and the Tipperary under-20 football panel who were defeated by Cork in the Munster quarter-final on Saturday evening last in Páirc Uí Rinn on a scoreline of 1-20 to 0-8.
We also wish Jake Morris and the Tipperary under-21 side the very best of luck in Semple Stadium this Thursday, June 21, when they take on Limerick in the Munster semi-final. Limerick had a comprehensive win over Clare (3-18 to 0-13) in the quarter-final so the Premier will have a tough task on their hands. This game throws in at 19:30.
Our senior hurlers made the trip to The Ragg on Tuesday, June 12, to play Drom & Inch in the county league but were unfortunately beaten 1-16 to 0-15 with Tipperary star Seamus Callanan getting the all-important goal. We now play Roscrea on Friday evening at 8pm in MacDonagh Park, Nenagh in the next round (please note the change of venue).
Our North Tipperary senior hurling semi-final clash against Kiladangan has been provisionally fixed for the weekend of August Saturday 4th or Sunday 5th. Kilruane MacDonaghs and Toomevara play in the other semi-final.
Our junior-A hurlers played Roscrea in St. Michael’s Park Toomevara on Friday, June 15 and were unfortunately defeated 1-22 to 0-15.
Our junior-B side will play Lorrha & Dorrha on Sunday July 1st at 7pm in St Ruadhan’s Park, Redwood.
Congratulations to the Nenagh CBS primary school under-11 hurlers who captured the Cumann na mBunscol title during the week in Semple Stadium. The club is heavily indebted to all the schools and teachers in the parish for their continued promotion of Gaelic games.
Under-8 training continues every Monday evening from 17:30 to 18:30
Under-6 & under-8
Under-6 and under-8 training takes place every Thursday at 6pm to 7pm. On Saturday morning next we host Kilruane MacDonaghs, Kiladangan and Portroe in a blitz from 11:15 to 12:15.
Thanks a million to he hundreds of people, young and old, who turned out and participated today!
I’m incredibly grateful for all the support, both personal and towards the €200,000 fundraising target! @nenagheireog https://t.co/c4GoaYR6tg
