Fourteen things to do in Nenagh this week!

Nenagh Hospital

On Thursday, December 13th (7.30pm) the Abbey Court Hotel will host a public meeting on the future of Nenagh Hospital. The public meeting has been called by Mayor Lalor McGee (Labour). Councillor McGee revealed at a recent meeting of Nenagh Town Council that the public, members of the Oireachtas, the HSE, the Nenagh Hospital Action Group and local councillors are invited to attend.

A Hippo For Christmas

The Talisman Theatre Company presents A Hippo For Christmas at the Nenagh Arts Centre on Friday, December 14th. Talisman’s 2012 Christmas production A Hippo for Christmas is a charming musical play adapted from the favourite children’s book of the same name. A Hippo For Christmas features at the Nenagh Arts Centre on Friday, December 14th at 10am, 11.30am and 1pm. Admission is priced at €13.50 (adult), €12.50 (child), school & group rate €10.50. One teacher free with every ten children’s tickets sold.

Soprano Celine Byrne

World-renowned soprano Celine Byrne (pictured above) brings a seasonal treat to Tipperary with her classical Christmas concert at the Nenagh Arts Centre on Saturday, December 15th. Celine has made her mark on both the operatic and concert stages throughout the world with recent performances at Carnegie Hall and the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden. A Classical Christmas with Celine Byrne and Friends will feature familiar songs from the world of opera in addition to well-known Christmas carols and songs such as ‘O Holy Night’ and ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’. The concert starts at 8pm. Tickets are priced at €25 (concession €22). Bookings can be made online at or by calling 067 34400. 

Musical Fundraiser

Joe Hackett and the Mint Jazz Band feature in a major musical fundraiser in aid of Jonathan Noonan at the Kenyon Bar on Monday, December 17th. Fourteen-year-old Jonathan Noonan is suffering from a rare form of cancer and a night of music will be played in his honour on Monday night. Indeed, the committee which came together to organise the night have called on the people of Nenagh to support the event. One of Ireland’s top trumpeters Keith McDonald will also feature alongside Joe Hackett and the Mint Jazz Band.

Gaelic Games

On Sunday, December 16th Newport will host the North Tipperary under-21A hurling final between Toomevara and Kilruane MacDonagh’s (throw-in 1.30pm). Both sides have won ten divisional titles at the grade and both are unbeaten in this year’s championship. Kilruane last won the under-21 title in 2010 and Toome’s last win materialised in 2005. Also on Sunday Templederry will host the North Tipperary under-21B hurling final between Roscrea and Kildangan (throw-in 12 noon). When these sides met earlier in this year’s championship Roscrea won on a 3-12 to 1-10 scoreline.


North Tipperary soccer fans will be treated to a derby this weekend when Nenagh AFC face rivals Nenagh Celtic in the Munster Junior Cup on Sunday at Brickfields (2pm). Nenagh Celtic beat BT Harps 2-0 in the Munster Junior Cup last weekend while Nenagh AFC lost (0-2) to Limerick’s Pike Rovers in the FAI Junior Cup. Cloughjordan and Ballymackey will also face off in the Munster Junior Cup (11.30am) on Sunday while on Saturday there is one eye-catching fixture - at 2pm Nenagh AFC host Clonmel Town in the Munster Youths Cup.


The Nenagh Ormond seconds are away to Abbeyfeale in the first round of the Munster Junior Cup on Sunday (1pm). On Saturday the under-19s face Clonmel in the East League final at 5.15pm in Clonmel while on Sunday the under-17s face Galbally in a play-off at Collegelands (11am). Finally, on Sunday the under-15s are in league action at New Ormond Park when they host Cashel at 11am. Munster are, of course, in Heineken Cup action on Sunday afternoon (3pm) when the brave and the faithful make a trip to Vicarage Road in Watford to take on Saracens. A win here will put Munster well on their way to the quarter-finals.
