Nenagh Eire Og Club Notes 21 September 2020

Nenagh Eire Og Club Notes 21 September 2020

 

Senior Hurling
Our senior hurlers have entered this year’s Hogan Cup and have been drawn in Group 2 alongside Ballina, Kiladangan and Roscrea. Please keep an eye on the fixtures section of the website for details of these upcoming games.

 

Junior-A Hurling
Our junior-A hurlers were made work all the way by a superb Kilruane MacDonaghs side in Puckane on Saturday evening in the North semi-final. Trailing for long periods of the game it took a great second-half goal from captain Bob O’Brien to give the Blues the edge before winning out. The lads now look forward to the North final where they will face Toomevara.

 

Junior-C Hurling
Our junior-C hurlers completed the round-robin section of the championship with a 3-9 to 3-3 win over Ballinahinch in MacDonagh Park on Sunday morning with Shane Flynn (2) and Seán McTiernan grabbing the all-important goals. Nenagh have now finished on top of the group and look forward to the semi-final.

 

John Kissane Cup
Due to Covid-19, it was impossible for the committee of the John Kissane football sevens to organise a competition this year so on Friday morning it was decided that the winners of Sunday evening’s junior football challenge between Nenagh Éire Óg and Portroe, clubs that he coached, would be presented with the John Kissane Cup. On the night Portroe prevailed and captain Kevin O’Halloran gave a lovely speech afterwards where he praised the work John Kissane put into both clubs over the years. In the North junior-B championship, we have been drawn to play the losers of Moneygall and Burgess in the quarter-final. 

 

Tipperary GAA Clubs’ Draw
Congratulations to David Hackett who won either a car or €15,000 in the first Tipperary GAA Clubs’ Draw on Friday evening. The promoter was Seamus Cleary. We also wish to congratulate Gerry Robinson who won €200 in the same draw. A great start to the draw for the club.
