Nenagh Éire Óg Notes 19th October 2022

Ger Gavin Memorial Tournament

The inaugural Ger Gavin Memorial Tournament took place on Saturday last in MacDonagh Park and proved to be a great success. O'Loughlin Gaels won out on the day, just pipping Clooney Quinn in the winner takes all final round. This was a great afternoon of hurling and our thanks to Moycarkey Borris, O'Loughlin Gaels, Clooney Quinn and our own U21 squad for making this happen. 

Special thanks to the Gavin family for their support in organising this tournament and to everyone who helped out to make this the successful and special day it was, a fitting tribute to Ger who worked tirelessly for Nenagh Éire Óg. 

Lotto

This week's lotto Jackpot was €4,100. Our new lotto boxes are now located in the following businesses in the town - The Hi-B, JKC, Centra, Rockies, Cleary’s Daybreak & Andy’s. You can buy your lotto tickets here each week and they will be included in the next lotto draw. So please keep an eye out for our new lotto 'boxes' in these premises and please continue to support our lotto. You can also continue to play our lotto online or contact any Committee member. Thank you for your continued support of our lotto.

Tipperary Draw

Congrats to Mike Hogan who won €300 in last Friday night's Tipperary Draw. The next draw takes place on Fri 4th Nov. 

Weekly Bingo

The club are planning to run Community Bingo in the Éire Óg complex during the winter. This will take place on Sunday nights and we are looking for volunteers to help run this – if you are interested in getting involved one Sunday night per month please contact Matt Lillis 087 6813605 or Anne Kennedy 087 1336024. This should be a great social event for our community through the winter months.

Under 7

Under 7 boys closed their season in great style with a fun morning last Saturday, the highlight of the morning was the boys beating the coaches in a game of tug-of-war! Each boy has improved greatly throughout the year which is brilliant to see. A special mention and good luck to the boys going up to the U9's next year. Finally, thanks to Alan Kelly and all the coaches who made the year run so smoothly and to the parents/guardians who gave up their Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings to bring the boys training or to matches. We hope to see all the boys and more coming back next year! 

Under 9

On Saturday morning our U9 hurlers travelled to Monaleen for some really competitive games. Conditions were tough but the boys adjusted admirably with some fantastic performances all round. Great improvements from all of the boys since the start of the year which is great to see. A huge thanks to Monaleen for hosting what were our last games of the year. Next weekend the boys have their final meet-up of the year with lots of fun and games planned at Adventure World in Nenagh College in recognition of their fantastic efforts all year on the hurling and football field. Well done boys and keep up the practice at home!

Under 11

For the next few weeks hurling training will be on Friday evenings only at 6pm as we wind down the season. New players born in 2011 and 2012 welcome to come along and give it a try. Contact 0874086439 for more details.

Under 13

Under 13 boys will be entering the upcoming Michael Hogan tournament, any boy from this group who is interested in playing drop a text into the U13 WhatsApp group.
