BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Fr. Tom Seymour
We were all deeply saddened to hear of the recent passing of our dear friend Fr. Tom Seymour. A native of Portroe, Fr. Tom was stationed in Nenagh for a long number of years and was a regular visitor to MacDonagh Park where he played cards every week in clubhouse. Fr. Tom became a confidant, friend and advisor to so many in the club and he will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
We extend our sympathies to his brothers Denis and John (Jack), sisters-in-law Norah and Anna, nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, Bishop Fintan Monahan, priests and religious in Killaloe Diocese, relatives, friends and parishioners of the various parishes that he administered.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
One of players, Scott O’Brien, recently departed these shores to head across the pond to the USA, more specifically to Parkland College in Champaign, Illinois on a golf scholarship where he will study Business Management. Scott has been a fine goalkeeper in hurling and forward in Gaelic football over the years and we wish him all the best in his studies and golf career.
Commiserations go to our junior-A hurlers who lost out to an excellent Toomevara side in a pulsating North Tipperary final in Templederry on Sunday last. Entering the closing stages Nenagh were three-points down but fought back to level deep in injury time thanks to a Donnacha Quinn pointed-free. Toomevara had a blistering start to extra time and by the break they led by eight points, a lead Nenagh just could not reel in. Both sides can now look forward to the county championship and who’s to say they won’t meet again in the county final.
Senior & Minor Hurling
Best of luck to our senior hurlers who play Loughmore Castleiney on Sunday at 1pm in The Ragg in the county championship while our minors face Kiladangan on Wednesday evening at 6:45pm in Toomevara.
We send our congratulations to both Conor McCarthy and Jake Morris who played pivotal roles as the Tipperary under-20s defeated Cork in the All-Ireland final on Saturday evening in LIT Gaelic Grounds, 5-17 to 1-18. Tipperary won and the very first and last under-21 crowns and they have continued that tradition by capturing the under-20 title.
