The Nenagh Éire Óg senior hurlers are preparing this week for a county championship clash with champions Thurles Sarsfields at The Ragg on Sunday evening at 7.30pm. All support appreciated!
Senior: Our senior hurlers play Thurles Sarsfields in the first round of the county championship on Sunday evening next. This game takes place in the Ragg at 7.30pm. The Blues’ clash with Thurles Sarsfields will form the second part of an attractive double header – at 6pm in the Ragg Boherlahan-Dualla take on Templederry Kenyons in the county senior hurling championship.
We appeal to everyone associated with the club to come out on Sunday evening and support the lads in what is sure to be a wonderful occasion. How Éire Óg progress in the county series will have implications for 2014 so it is vitally important that the efforts of the lads are supported.
The eight losers of this first round in the county championship will enter the Ó Riain Cup (which has relegation attached) while the eight winners from round one of the county championship play-off with the eight losing divisional semi-finalists. Critically, the winners of this round will be guaranteed a place in the top-tier of the 2014 county senior hurling championship. Those eight winners will join the eight divisional finalists to make up the top-sixteen in 2014.
Junior A: On Saturday last our junior A hurlers qualified for the league final courtesy of a four-point win over Burgess. Final score: 1-19 to 1-15. We now play Borris-Ileigh in the league final.
Under-12: The teams in groups one and four both recorded wins against the Silvermines in the latest round of the under-12 hurling Go Games league. The next round of matches is against Kildangan in Nenagh on Friday, June 14th. Best of luck to both teams!
Bag Packing: Our annual bag packing fundraiser is on this Saturday, June 15th in Dunnes Stores. Help is needed and parents will be asked during the week to please give an hour of their time. Thanks to Dunnes Stores for all their assistance
Trip to Cork: A reminder to all parents of under-8s/10s & 12s that the trip to Bishopstown in Cork is on Saturday, June 22nd. It will be a series of well-organised fun blitzes and the boys are to wear full Éire Óg kit including their new training tops. The permission slips should be returned to trainers immediately. More details will be sent home with the boys during the week.
Date for the diary: The Juvenile Summer Camp is on July 22nd to July 26th this year. Always a very popular camp it is open to boys and girls with non-members welcome.

Cumann mBunscoil: Well done to St Mary’s who retained their under-13 county title after a great win over Boherlahan in Semple Stadium on Thursday last. Also well done to the under-11 team who finished runners up in their competition. We wish to thank all the teachers and coaches in St Mary’s for so generously volunteering their time to promote Camogie among the girls. St Mary’s plays a vital role in the development of our players and the teachers’ hard work is greatly appreciated by the club.
