Under-12: the under-12 groups one and four footballers both recorded their second victories on the trot with wins over Toomevara on Friday last. In the group one game Éire Óg were lucky to hold on for a 2-6 to 2-5 win after a strong Toome comeback in the second half. The group four team enjoyed a more convincing 4-2 to 1-1 victory. The group one team are at home to Borrisokane on Friday, April 19th while the group four team has a bye. Hurling training continues on Wednesdays at 6.15pm and on Saturdays at 10.45am.
Under-14: our under-14 footballers had a good win in Borrisokane on Wednesday last in their second match in the football league. A strong team-performance, which included two goals from Killian Malone and great goalkeeping by Aaron White, saw them run in at half-time with a 2-3 to 0-1 point lead. It was inevitable that a strong Borrisokane team would throw everything at us in the second half and two early goals narrowed the gap to two points. Nenagh however stuck to the game plan, led by a tireless performance by Fiachra Carey, to run out winners on a 4-4 to 2-1 scoreline. The next round match is on Wednesday, April 17th at home to Kildangan.
Under-16: the under-16 footballers game against Kilruane MacDonagh’s on Monday evening was postponed. Their next match in the league is on Monday, April 22nd at home to Inane Rovers. This team is putting in a huge effort in training and we wish the lads the best of luck in their upcoming matches.
Tipperary minors: congratulations to Shane Hennessy, Barry Heffernan, James Mackey and Andrew Coffey on their success with the Tipperary minor hurling team last week.
The junior B team maintained their great run in the league defeating Ballingarry on a scoreline of 5-8 to 1-1 on Sunday with Sarah O’Connor (2), Holly O’Brien and Danielle Harrington among the goal scorers. We have one game left in the league against Fethard.
The under-14 team had a great win in the Féile na nGael final against Newport (2-6 to 0-2). This is the very first time we have ever won the Féile na nGael title and great credit is due to the team and their mentors for all their hard work.
Hard luck to our under-12 team that was defeated by Toomevara.
We offer our congratulations to Sinéad Meagher who was a member of the Munster team which won the inter-provincial title in Cavan on Saturday – Sinéad won both of her matches in the competition.
