Nenagh Éire Óg.
New Senior Hurling Manager/Coach
The club is delighted to announce that Knockavillla Kickham’s man Brian Horgan will be our senior coach/manager for 2021.
Brian comes with a wealth of experience following a very successful club and inter-county playing career. He played hurling for Tipperary at all levels won a Munster minor title in 1993 and an All-Ireland title as captain in 1995. Included on that panel were Nenagh Éire Óg players Kevin Tucker, Robbie Tomlinson and Declan O’Meara.
At senior level, he won a National Hurling League medal in 1999 when Tipperary beat Galway 1-14 to 1-10.
Brian also has an impressive coaching career and was involved with the county development squads in 2010 and 2011. Many of the current Tipperary senior hurlers were part of these squads. In 2010 he coached Gortnahue Glengoole to the county intermediate title. In 2012 he went on to coach the county minor hurling team that won the All-Ireland title. Barry Heffernan and Killian Gleeson were on this panel.
In 2014 he moved into senior inter-county coaching and helped the Kerry senior hurlers to win 2A of the National Hurling League before becoming part of Michael Ryan’s backroom team that won the 2016 All-Ireland title with Dáire Quinn and Barry Heffernan being part of the panel. He also managed Templederry Kenyons and together they reached the North senior hurling final as well as the county semi-final.
At club level he coached Doon to the Limerick senior hurling title and alongside Willie Maher, he coached Cuala to the Dublin senior hurling title.
We wish Brian every success in his new role as Nenagh senior hurling manager and coach.
We extend our sympathies to the family and friends of Edward “Chubby” Hassett, Cormack Drive and late of Tober Mhuire, Nenagh who passed away recently. Edward was a former player with the club and remained a loyal supporter throughout his life. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
