Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
Shaun Hilmi, brother of senior panelist Craig, played hurling and Gaelic football for Nenagh Éire Óg, and unfortunately, has been diagnosed as Ewings Sarcoma Cancer, a rare condition that only affects 2.93 people out of a million.
Shaun will have to undergo six cycles of chemotherapy, surgery and possibly radium. Shaun’s treatment will be very expensive and which he needs to give him the best possible chance of making a full recovery.
A Go Fund Me page has been set up and we are asking the GAA community to come together and help Shaun complete his journey back to full fitness.
All donations, no matter how big or small will be greatly appreciated by Shaun and the Hilmi family. The link can be found on our club website and social media accounts.
After a number of years of hard work, meetings and negotiations we are thrilled to announce that the grounds in Streame are now officially ours with the purchase being confirmed during the week.
The purchase of the ten-acre site just off The Dark Road will secure our club for decades to come after the phenomenal growth of our juvenile and camogie sections over the last twenty years. MacDonagh Park was bursting at the seams with hurlers, camógs and footballers training for and playing our national games and the club was struggling to find time slots to accommodate all of our teams.
The new grounds can be accessed from MacDonagh Park with the old Grey’s Lane providing a passageway from the scoreboard end at the Monaree side to the new site.
A huge amount of work remains to be done over the coming years to transform the grounds into pristine playing pitches and numerous fundraising activities will have to be seriously considered. With that in mind, we ask all of our players, members and supporters to please join our lotto online and help us prepare for the next stage in our club’s exciting history.
On Wednesday evening last Chairman John Tooher was thrilled to, at last, open our gates once again for training as our players were put through their paces for the first time since last March.
It was fantastic to hear the chit chat, wisecracks and the sound of ash on leather echo around Thomas MacDonagh’s ground once again after the eerie silence of the last few months.
Nenagh Éire Óg takes great pride in being an inclusive club where all members of our community are more than welcome to play, support and volunteer and be an important part of the Nenagh Éire Óg team.
To celebrate Pride Week and we changed all our profile photographs on our social media channels, incorporating the Pride flag and our crest. Bigotry and intolerance, in any guise, are not welcome in our club and we strive to ensure that MacDonagh Park is a welcoming place for all.
We send our congratulations to Nenagh Ormond’s Seán McCullough who was recently elected Munster Rugby President for the upcoming season. A fantastic achievement for Seán and for everyone connected with sport in the town.
