Nenagh Eire Og - 14 September 2020
Our junior-A hurlers will play Kilruane MacDonaghs on Saturday in the North semi-final in Puckane at 5:30pm. Best of luck to Eddie Tucker and his team.
Our junior-C hurlers continued their good form on Sunday morning in Ballina making it three wins from three in the North championship with a 2-21 to 2-4 win against Ballina. Goals in either half from Lenny Ryan and Michael Hallinan helped secure the win in a game that was in the melting pot until the final quarter when Nenagh pulled away. Our final game of the group stages is on Sunday morning at 11:30am in MacDonagh Park when Ballinahinch will provide the opposition. On another note, we wish to thank former Éire Óg hurler Brian Fitzgibbon who now plays for Ballina for his help in treating one of our injured players.
Our minor footballers left it very late to defeat Borrisokane on Saturday afternoon scoring 2-2 in stoppage time to beat the hosts in Gardiner Park, 3-7 to 1-5. A Josh Keller penalty and two injury-time goals from Cian Galvin sealed the win and the lads now advance to the North semi-final.
Training continues for our junior football team as they prepare for the upcoming North Tipperary championship. If you would like to join the panel please contact joint managers Lenny Ryan or Brian Duffy. Alternatively, you can message any of our social media channels.
There was also a warm welcome for Ormond Special Olympics, who were the second of our community charity partners to receive a cheque for €500. Club Treasurer, Josephine Mackey made the presentation to Ormond sports star, Lucy O’Neill. Lucy then did the honours and drew out Nenagh Lions Club as our next charity to be awarded €500. Nenagh Éire Óg wishes the very best of luck to Ormond Special Olympics as they plan their return to outdoor activities.
