Nenagh Eire Og Club Notes 29 March 2021
We extend our sympathy to the family of Connie Clear who passed away last Thursday. Connie played both hurling and football with Nenagh in the 50s and 60s and was goalie on the team of 1964 that claimed the North senior title. Connie was also a noted footballer and played in goals for the Tipperary footballers in the 1960s, an achievement he was very proud of. But it was on the handball court where Connie truly excelled - he dominated the handball scene in North Tipperary from the late 50s to the early 70s, in a fourteen year period he was only beaten twice. He won a total of thirteen Munster medals in minor, junior and senior grades and also has four All-Ireland titles, two of which were in the senior grade. Connie was honoured in recent years by being inducted into the Tipperary Handball Hall of Fame - a great honour for himself and his family. To his wife Margaret, sons Robert, Michael and Con, daughter Geraldine and the extended Clear family we offer our sincere sympathies. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
