Nenagh Eire Og Club Notes 05 May 2021

Development/Fundraising

With the preliminary work on the new hurling wall well under way, we are also well under way with the fundraising for this phase of the project. We sincerely thank all of those who have donated to date and thanks also to our team of members who have worked hard over the past number of weeks organising these donations. We will continue to work on this over the next number of weeks and hopefully the target for this phase of the project will be reached shortly.

Further information on this phase of the project/fundraising can be had from Liam Heffernan, Mary Jo O'Reilly or Anne Kennedy.

 

Lotto:

Our lotto jackpot on May 4th was €4,900. We thank you all for your continued support of our lotto, those who wish to join can do so through the link on the club website http://www.nenagheireog.com/

 

Membership:

The deadline for the payment of membership has been extended to 31st May. With both adults and juveniles returning to training next week, we ask that all players please pay their membership immediately. Players will not be covered under the Player Injury scheme unless they have their membership paid. The link to pay is on the club website and all information on how to register for Foireann can also be found here. Membership can also be paid at training once it resumes.

 

Condolences

We extend our sympathies to the family of Ollie Sherlock who passed away last week. Ollie's son David captained our Junior C hurlers who won the North title in 2010 and his late son Michael also played both juvenile hurling and football with the club. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

 

St Conlon's Presentation

The Nenagh Éire Óg Healthy Club walking group recently did the Jerusalema challenge as part of their fundraiser for St Conlon's Nursing Home in Nenagh. The group raised €2,673 for this great cause and the cheque was presented recently in the grounds of St Conlons. Well done to all concerned.

 

Return To Play

While we are all very much looking forward to returning to training we will have to hold on for a little longer given the situation around the increased presence of Covid in the locality. The situation will be reviewed weekly and updates will be issued via the various WhatsApp groups. Training slots - days and times have been issued, just the start date next to be confirmed.

Please encourage the boys to practice when they can over the next few weeks. There are a huge number of boys nationally that struggled for motivation in all sports over the past few months and we are very conscious of this and will be very mindful of the boys. We hope every available boy will return and hope to gain extra boys as well. 

It's a very exciting time for the club with huge developments taking place in the field at present. When the boys return to training they will see all the work going on for the hurling wall and astroturf which is anticipated will be completed by the end of June. Remember to transfer your donations and let your funding representative know you have done so for tracking purposes.

 

Garda Vetting

Reminder to get your Garda vetting up to date please. You cannot be involved as a coach or mentor in any juvenile coaching set up without your GAA Garda vetting being up to date so please apply asap
