No rest for Nenagh Éire Óg – following Sunday’s dramatic county minor A final win the club now prepares for the under-21 championship and Sunday’s county junior B Camogie final.
Minor A: On Wednesday night last in Semple Stadium, Thurles our minor hurlers comprehensively defeated Carrick Swans (5-19 to 0-14) to reach the county final for the third successive year. Following that mid-week semi-final win attention turned to Sunday afternoon’s county final in Semple Stadium, Thurles when Éire Óg dramatically defeated Holycross-Ballycahill on a score line of 3-10 to 1-15. Goals from Killian Gleeson and Andrew Coffey before half-time and another in the second half by Gary Howard helped Éire Óg toward this epic one-point victory. Congratulations to the panel of players and management team for a terrific year and winning back-to-back county titles. For a full report on the game please click here.
