Nenagh Éire Óg Notes 18th August 2021
Hard luck to our senior hurlers who lost out to Kiladangan in the North semi final on Sunday. The score in the game was 3-18 to 1-20 with Anthony Walsh getting the goal. Attention now turns to the Co. Championship where we play Kilruane in the first round on the weekend of 28th/29th Aug.
Well done to the Junior As who had a good win over Toomevara in round one of the championship on Friday evening. In a high scoring game Craig Hilmi scored a hat trick with Billy Moran and Mark O’Farrell getting the other two goals – the game finished 5-16 to 3-15. The next game is against Roscrea on Fri 27th August in Cloughjordan.
Hard luck to our Junior Bs who lost out to Kiladangan by 3 points in their first game in the Championship over the weekend. Final score in the game was 1-16 to 1-13 – Noel Maloney coming on to get the Nenagh goal. The Junior Bs next game is against Templederry next Saturday evening in Nenagh.

This event takes place next Saturday, 21st August. The cyclists will depart Nenagh Éire Óg from 8.30am and will take in a scenic tour of Lough Derg. This is organised in partnership between Nenagh Éire Óg and Nenagh Triathlon Club and is a part fundraiser for North Tipperary Hospice.
Our Under 9 boys had a great morning in MacDonagh park on Saturday last when they took on both Silvermines and Portroe in three very entertaining hurling matches. Each of the Nenagh teams played their hearts out, there were some outstanding performances on display during the games and with numbers down due to holidays the teams dug deep and worked really hard for each other and put the opposition under lots of pressure. Very well done to all three Nenagh Éire Óg teams. Thanks to Silvermines and Portroe for making the journey to Nenagh. Hurling training continues Tuesday 6-7pm and Saturday 10-11am with football training on Wednesday 5.30-6.30pm. Great to see new boys joining who are always more than welcome.
Training continues Tuesday & Friday for hurling at 6 and Wednesday for football at 5.30.
New players are always welcome for either code. Great to see new faces joining over the last few weeks and we look forward to seeing more new boys.
Both U13 groups had games last night with the U13A’s playing Borrisoleigh and the U13D’s playing Burgess at 7pm - both games were in Nenagh.
Training continues Wednesday and Friday evenings as usual.
Our Under 15s played the last game of the round robin last Thursday losing out to Kilruane. Training will continue on Tuesday and Thursday in preparation for the knockout stages in a few weeks.
Our Under 17s had a hard fought win in Dolla last Monday. Despite playing with a strong breeze in the first half, Éire Óg squandered a few scoring opportunities but a strong second half performance ensured a narrow victory after a very entertaining encounter.
Training continues each Monday, Wednesday and Friday with the knockout stages beginning in three weeks.
