Commiserations to our under-14A footballers who lost to Inane Rovers in the north Tipperary football final at Toomevara this evening.
North Tipperary Under-14A Football Final
Nenagh Éire Óg 0-1 Inane Rovers 0-4
Despite attacking relentlessly and working tirelessly for the cause the Nenagh Éire Óg under-14A footballers lost a hard-fought north Tipperary final to Inane Rovers on Wednesday evening.
An Eoin Tynan point for Inane Rovers in the 19th minute handed the Roscrea outfit a 0-1 to 0-0 interval lead.
Nenagh Éire Óg fought back manfully after the break and equalized through a Scott O’Brien effort three minutes into the second half following a smashing pass from Seán Phelan.
Éire Óg attacked relentlessly thereafter, but were frustrated by some errant shooting.
Eighteen minutes into the second half a Jack Lee point forced Inane Rovers into a 0-2 to 0-1 lead before a second Lee point two minutes later left Éire Óg trailing by two points with five minutes to play.
The Blues pushed hard for a late goal, but Inane Rovers had the final say in the matter when James O’Meara tapped over a penalty in second half injury time.
We would like to wish the Nenagh Éire Óg panel all the very best as they now prepare for the north Tipperary under-14A hurling championship.
