Nenagh Eire Og Club Notes 17 November 2020
Congratulations to Jake, Barry and the Tipperary senior hurlers who defeated Cork in LIT Gaelic Grounds on Saturday afternoon, 2-18 to 1-17, with Jake Morris grabbing the all-important goal with minutes remaining to secure the win. Tipperary now advance to play in the All-Ireland quarter-finals. We also want to wish the Tipperary senior footballers the very best of luck next weekend in the Munster final against Cork. This fixture has the added significance of occurring on the 100th anniversary of Bloody Sunday when British authorities attacked Croke Park resulting in the deaths of fourteen people including Tipperary men Daniel Carroll, James Teehan and player Michael Hogan. Hopefully, they will be directing proceedings from above and helping captain Conor Sweeney bring the Munster trophy home for the first time since 1935.
We all extend our best wishes to club legend and hero Mick Burns who was recently hospitalised. We can’t wait to see him back around MacDonagh Park again in the near future.
Nenagh Éire Óg are delighted to announce that Keith Hennessy, a lecturer in Strength and Conditioning and Sports Science in L.I.T. will join Brian Horgan as our senior coach. He has previously worked with the Waterford senior hurlers and has won All-Ireland honours with Tipperary minor hurlers. We welcome a man of many talents to the club.

The club would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the late Bernie Morris (nee Ryan) who passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family.
Mrs. Morris’ husband Con has been a loyal supporter of the club having played hurling and Gaelic football for Nenagh for many years before moving onto a successful coaching career with numerous underage teams. Her son Cian played for the club while her daughter Danielle has always been a great supporter while her granddaughter Keevah is a top underage camogie player.
To her husband Con, son Cian, daughter Danielle, her brother and sisters, grandchildren and brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law and wide circle of friends, we offer our sincerest condolences.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.
