The club gears up for Operation Transformation, the Buff is back while Tipperary conquer the Kingdom. All this and more in this week’s news on the Blues
The club held a lovely and relaxed 5km and 7.5km walk on New Years Day. Our thanks goes to Bartley Ryan and TP Sullivan for organising the event. We are gearing ourselves up for the Operation Transformation walk, in association with RTÉ and Tipperary Sports Partnership, on Saturday 12th January at 10am in MacDonagh Park. This is the ideal way to begin 2019 on a positive and healthy note and with a huge crowd expected it is the ideal way to get some exercise in a social environment.

Tipperary Conquer the Kingdom
Congratulations to Jake Morris, Barry Heffernan and the Tipperary senior hurling team who defeated Kerry in MacDonagh Park on Saturday last, 4-20 to 1-14 in the Co-Op Superstores Munster league in front of 1186 patrons. Jake pointed three fantastic points while Barry was superb in the half-back line. Tipperary now face Clare in the final which is due to take place next weekend.
On Saturday evening last, Tipp FM’s Stephen Gleeson paid a visit to Jimmy Morris to interview him for an upcoming documentary to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Bloody Sunday. The Tipperary GAA Bloody Sunday Committee are in the process of planning a number of events to mark the centenary of one of the darkest days in GAA history and Jimmy spoke about an old friend of his from Nenagh, Pat Cleary, who was present on that dreadful day.
Delighted to meet @nenagheireog legend Jimmy Morris after the Tipp game on Saturday evening. Such good company and an avid GAA follower, it was great to record him for a Bloody Sunday documentary to mark the centenary @TippFMSport and @TippfootballGAA #GAA pic.twitter.com/sjtNqjBupD

The Buff is Back
The popular Kerry hurling fan, Buff Egan, was back in MacDonagh Park on Saturday to see his beloved Kingdom play the Premier and true to form, he was the first patron through the gates. Arguably the most dedicated hurling fan in the country Buff once again happily posed for selfies and even entertained the crowd at half time with his exhibition of free taking while been ably assisted in his Snapchat commentary by Mary Ryan, wife of former Nenagh hurler, Denis.
New Year’s Resolution
In Nenagh Éire Óg we are very fortunate to have an army of volunteers who help out in many different ways throughout the year.

There is always something that people can do to help the club in an enjoyable and social environment. If you would like to help out Nenagh Éire Óg email us at email@example.com or talk to any member of the club. Why not make it your new year’s resolution to volunteer your skills and services? It will be the best resolution you’ll ever keep.
The very best of luck to Donach O’Donnell and the Nenagh CBS Harty Cup side who play Christian Brothers’ College, Cork in Kilmallock at 13:30 this Wednesday, January 9th in the quarter-final. The lads have been training diligently and deserve all the support they can get.
