Supporting Nenagh Éire Óg's Development
The planned development of MacDonagh Park has been well highlighted over the past number of weeks and months and we are now delighted to be in a position to get the ball rolling on the first phase of this which will be to raise the funds to construct the new Hurling Wall with an AstroTurf pitch.
Similar to other clubs that have taken on such a large development, the first phase will be funded by donations from our members and supporters where donors can avail of the Tax Exemption scheme. Over the next number of weeks members from all areas of the club will be driving this fundraising and seeking donations for this exciting project.
We are hopeful that the work on the Hurling Wall will start once the current restrictions are lifted with a completion date of June/July. There is huge positivity in the club that we, together, can achieve all we have set out in the planned roadmap for our club. We have been very fortunate over the years with the support we receive from all people associated with the club and community and we are now asking once again that you please get behind us and help us get this exciting project off the ground. Your support as ever is greatly appreciated.
If anyone wants further information on this phase of development/fundraising please contact Liam Heffernan, Mary-Jo O'Reilly or Anne Kennedy.
The lotto jackpot on Monday 12th April was €4,600. Results of our lotto draw, which include the ten names drawn for the supplementary draw, are available on our website and social media platforms every week. We thank you for continuing to support our lotto and ask those that have not yet signed up or who may have cancelled their auto renew during the recent suspension of the lotto to please sign up today - the link to join is on the Club Website - http://www.nenagheireog.com/
Membership for 2021 is now due and while the deadline of March 31st has been extended, we are still asking our players and supporters to please pay their membership now. Foireann is the new GAA registration system and while membership should still be paid through Clubforce or to any Committee member, members must set up their own registration on Foireann. Information on how to do this is available on the club website and details have also been shared via the various player Whatsapp Groups. Families should also set up their own registration on Foireann.ie.
With the return to training starting for juveniles at the end of April and hopefully all other groups in May, it is important that all players, both juvenile and adult, look after the payment of their membership in the coming weeks.
We extend our sympathy to the family of Shane Middleton who passed away last week. Shane, who grew up across the road from MacDonagh Park, played juvenile hurling and football with the club and continued to support Nenagh Éire Óg down through the years.
We also extend our sympathy to the family of Joe Starr who passed away in the last week. Joe's shop on Mitchell Street in the town was well known as the place to get your club colours over the years.

Return To Play
The Juvenile Club are all very much looking forward to returning to training in the next few weeks. We will let everyone know what days we are training once it is organised with the field committee.
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 the work starting on the hurling wall and astroturf which is anticipated will be completed by the end of June.
