The Men of ’95
We have recently got word that the county senior championship-winning team of 1995 will be guests of the County Board at a reception prior to the county final this year and will be introduced to the crowd at half time. The game is fixed for 20 September but is subject to change due to Covid-19. In 1995 Nenagh defeated Boherlahan Dualla 2-25 to 2-8, the goals came courtesy of John Heffernan and Robbie Tomlinson with captain Conor O’Donovan climbing the steps to claim the Dan Breen where he echoed the words of Paul Kennedy from 1992 when he declared that this is for everyone who ever wore the blue jersey. Conor has once again taken on a leadership role with this team as he is coordinating the group for this reunion and all players from the panel are asked to contact him at 087 610 7360
Irish Language and Culture Officer
The club is currently looking for an Irish Language and Culture Officer. The main role of the Irish Language and Culture Officer is to promote the use of the Irish language and to promote cultural activities such as Irish music and dancing in the Club. The Culture & Language Officer position should be filled by someone who has a good working knowledge of the Irish language. The officer should provide a back-up service in the use of Gaeilge for all officers and members and encourage and promote the use of Irish phrases in the club’s business. Cultural activities should be organised through the very popular GAA Scór competition. He/she should also liaise closely with the County Irish Officer and any relevant Committee and with other Irish/cultural organisations in the area. If you are interested in fulfilling this role, please contact email@example.com or contact any committee member.
Thank You Christy
All of our teams in the club owe a huge debt of gratitude to referee Christy McLoughlin who has taken charge of all of our challenge games in recent weeks in MacDonagh Park. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to use a referee from outside the parish and the former goalkeeper has been more than accommodating to our teams when it comes to officiating matches. Without Christy being so willing to offer up his time, it is unlikely that these games would go ahead. So a big thank you Christy from everyone in the club.
Thank You Bartley and Marion
Our entire community owes a debt of gratitude to Bartley and Marion Ryan for their huge and selfless efforts in coordinating our club’s voluntary group who purchased groceries, fuel and prescriptions for the vulnerable during the pandemic. With over 70 volunteers, the response from our club to the call to help was phenomenal and Bartley and Marion deserve huge praise for everything they did over the last few months including the delivery of parish newsletters on Saturday evenings while the churches were closed. The voluntary group has now been stood down but if anyone still requires our assistance please do not hesitate to get in touch with the club and we will be thrilled to help.
