Nenagh Éire Óg Notes 18th April 2022

Co SHL

Our seniors lost out by a point to Clonoulty last Sat evening in Round Three of the Co SHL. The score in the game was 1-19 to 1-18 with Killian Malone getting our goal in the second half. Our next game is against Borrisoleigh on Tues 26th April in Borrisoleigh. 

 

North Junior Leagues

Both our junior groups are in action next weekend. The Junior As play Toomevara on Fri 22nd April at 7pm and the Junior Bs play Templederry on Sat 23rd April at 5pm – both games are in MacDonagh Park.

 

Under 19

Our U19s were in action in the U19B North Football semi final on Monday last against Moneygall Clonakenny. The U19A non competitive hurling league is due to start this week where we are due to play Roscrea on Wed 20th in Roscrea.

 

Condolences

We extend our sympathies to the O'Kennedy family on the sad passing of Michael O'Kennedy last weekend. Michael was a sub on the 1957 team who won the North Final and has been a great supporter of the club down through the years. His brother Paidi is currently one of our Club Presidents. There was a minutes silence for Michael before our Co League game on Sat evening and the club provided a Guard of Honour before the funeral mass on Tuesday. Ar Dheis De go raibh a anam.

This promises to be an action-packed day, where everyone from U6 to senior and people in the wider community will have the opportunity to visit the club facilities and partake in the entertainment and festivities.  More details to follow, but make sure to keep the day free for what will be an historic event for our club.
