Jack McLoughlin plays in the Primary Game, a return to junior-B hurling and details of the annual Family Fun Run – This week’s club notes are packed with news on the Blues
Hard luck to Barry Heffernan, Jake Morris, Dáire Quinn and the Tipperary senior hurling team who were defeated by Limerick in the opening round of the Munster championship in the Gaelic Grounds. On what was his first championship start for the Premier, Barry is to be congratulated on a fine game at wing back. They now face Cork this Sunday in Semple Stadium.
We also commiserate with Cian O’ Farrell, Seán Phelan and the county minor side who also suffered a defeat at the hands of Limerick in the Munster championship. Cian came on as a second-half substitute but couldn’t claw back Limerick’s lead. Best of luck to the team against Cork next weekend.
Our seniors were defeated by Clonoulty Rossmore in the Tipperary county league on Saturday evening 2-16 to 3-21. Hard luck lads.
Our junior-A side face Kilruane MacDonaghs on Saturday evening at 17:30 in the opening round of the championship. Best of luck to all involved.
Junior B Hurling
The club have decided to enter a junior-B team into the championship after a gap of a few years. Anyone interested in playing is asked to contact 083 334 3347 ASAP.

The Nenagh Éire Óg Juvenile club 10k/5k Family Fun Run is scheduled to take place on Sunday June 17th. This year as part of the Healthy Club Project the annual run will support the worthy cause of former Tipperary hurler Seamus Hennessy who, as part of his Running for Josie campaign, is aiming to raise €200,000 for Pieta House.

We extend our congratulations to Jack McLoughlin who played in the full-back line for the Tipperary primary school’s game at half-time of the Munster senior quarter-final between Tipperary and Waterford on Saturday evening. Jack had a fine game in the full-back line showing off the many great skills of Gaelic football to the large crowd. Jack got his photograph taken afterwards with many of the players including Michael Quinlivan and Alan Campbell. A special thanks goes to Jack’s teacher George Hannigan who nominated Jack to play on the team.
Congratulations to the Flynn brothers, Paddy and Kevin, on winning the Boston seven-a-side tournament over the weekend with Fr. Tom Burkes’. They played and won five matches on their way to the final where they defeated Tipperary. Well done lads.
We commiserate with Barry Coffey and the Irish under-17 soccer team who were beaten in extraordinary circumstances in the quarter-finals of the European Championship by the Netherlands on Tuesday last. Barry had a fine tournament cementing his growing reputation as an up and coming soccer player.
The so called fighting Irish can’t mix it with the standard of European football? Cheers for everyone’s support over this 3 year journey. ❤️Words can’t describe how we feel right now about that result. The future it bright and we will be back stronger than ever 👊🇮🇪
