Congratulations: Well done to club stalwart Jimmy Minogue who was elected as a Munster Council delegate after a vote at the Tipperary County Convention on Monday, December 15th. The former North Board chairman was elected alongside John Costigan (JK Bracken’s) to the provincial council with Barry O’Brien (Fr Sheehy’s) missing out on this occasion. Jimmy Minogue’s previous role was as County Development Officer.
Happy Christmas: The club would also like to extend its best wishes to all our members, players and supporters over the festive season. Happy Christmas to all and best wishes for the year to come!
Healthy Club Project: The Nenagh Éire Óg Healthy Club Project team, in partnership with SOS (Suicide or Survive), will host one-day Wellness Workshop which aims to help people understand, take charge of and responsibility for their own mental health – this Workshop, which will be delivered by SOS, takes place on Thursday, January 29th in the Business Innovation Centre on Stafford Street, Nenagh. The workshop is free of charge to participants. The workshop will be of benefit to anyone who is interested in mental health and wellness. Participants will be facilitated by people with both lived life experience of mental health difficulties and people with experience of working in the mental health area. Personal testimony will be combined with practical tools and tips that you can use in your everyday life to improve your own wellness. The workshop will examine our thinking process, the wellness continuum, mindfulness, personality traits, and the ‘wheel of change’. This is all done in a very interactive non-intrusive and fun way. Areas covered on the day include relaxation and stress management, understanding the relationship between thoughts and emotions, developing a wellness toolkit and daily plan. Places on the workshop are limited. Please contact Jacqui or Lisa at SOS to reserve your place – 1890 577 577.

Alternatively you can also support Nenagh Éire Óg by paying your club membership. Membership for 2014 is now due and can be paid to any club officer or online. The cost of membership is priced at €25.
In 2014 Nenagh Éire Óg catered for over 400 active members (170 juvenile, 225 adult) and in 2015 we hope to grow that number. Crucially, however, we are not simply interested in developing our playing population. We are also interested in attracting volunteers who are interested in becoming coaches with the club and administrators of the club.
Here at Éire Óg we appreciate that not everyone can train a team, that not everyone is interested in coaching and that not everyone has time to attend committee meetings. That said there are plenty of very practical ways in which you can help your club work hard for the betterment of the local community, our children and our cultural heritage.
We therefore encourage anyone in the community who supports the club and who is prepared to give of their time on a voluntary basis to get involved so that fresh faces can bring fresh ideas forward. If you take that brave first step over the threshold, we guarantee that you will not regret it. So, if you are interested in lending a hand drop us a line – contact us.
Best Wishes: The juvenile club would like to wish all players, mentors, administrators and supporters of the Blues a very happy Christmas. Here’s to a successful 2015!
