Éire Óg will face one of the seeded divisional champions – Kildangan (north), Killenaule (south), Éire Óg Annacarty-Donohill (west) or Drom & Inch (mid).

In their respective semi-final Toomevara enjoyed a highly-impressive 1-19 to 1-10 win over Roscrea. The date, time and venue for this final is yet to be confirmed.

Under-8: Our under-8 hurlers brought the Jack Ryan Cup home to Nenagh from Roscrea for the first time in four years last Saturday morning in what was a great day of hurling for all the teams involved. Our boys put in super performances and it was great to see how much they have all improved since the year started. Keep up the good work lads. Our thanks to Roscrea for another well run tournament and to all the parents who travelled for their continued support.
Under-10: Training continues on Wednesdays at 5.15pm and Saturdays at 11.15am. There will be challenge matches soon.
Under-12: The under-12 group one and four hurling teams welcomed Ferbane/Belmont to McDonagh Park for two competitive challenge games last Saturday. We look forward to travelling back to the Faithful County in a couple of weeks for a return fixture. With all the boys back to school this week; training will continue on Saturdays only for the month of September.
Under-14: Our under-14 hurlers put in a spirited display from first to last whistle in the north Tipperary under-14A hurling final on Wednesday last in Cloughjordan, but unfortunately fell short in the end to a strong Roscrea team. It has been a super season of sport for these great lads, winning the north football final and reaching the north hurling final. Our thanks go to manager David Minogue, Donie O’Brien and Mike Hallinan for all their hard work and to the boys themselves for the huge effort they put in all year. We wish Roscrea all the best in their county semi-final. To read a report on the heroic efforts of our under-14s please click here.

NENAGH SPORT UNITES FOR SHANE DELANEY
Nenagh man, Shane Delaney, had an accident earlier this year in Australia and suffered damage to his spinal cord leaving him paralysed from the chest down. After having surgery in Australia Shane returned to Ireland near the end of June and has been working hard at his rehabilitation in Dun Laoghaire for the past few weeks. He is extremely positive and mentally strong and has been an inspiration to our whole community.
Shane and his family have strong links to the Nenagh Éire Óg club with both himself and his brothers, David and Liam, representing the club at juvenile level and remaining strong supporters throughout. Nenagh Éire Óg has joined together with Nenagh Ormond RFC, Nenagh AFC and Nenagh Celtic to organise a huge fundraising event for Shane on Sunday, September 14th. Tickets for the event are priced at €20 each, are now on sale for this event and are available from club officers and committee members. Please support this very worthy event!
