Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
All in Nenagh Éire Óg were saddened to hear of the untimely passing of John Tucker last week. John, or Nudie as he was better known, was a talented hurler and footballer and played hurling and football at every level with Nenagh Éire Og. He was part of one of the most successful juvenile teams in the club, a group who won North and County hurling medals at U14, U16 and minor and North and County Football titles at U16 and minor. At adult level, Nudie won U21 North and County titles in 1993 and was also on the senior panel in 1992 & 1993 who won back to back North titles. In all the successes, the standout was undoubtedly the winning of back to back North and County minor hurling titles in 1991 and 1992 - it was fitting then that this group provided the Guard of Honour at John's funeral over the weekend. To John's sister Paula, brothers Eddie, David and Kevin and the extended Tucker family we offer our deepest sympathies. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
Work continues on the field with the diggers back on site this week and the laying out of the new field about to begin. A big few weeks now lie ahead as we reach the final stages of this phase of the project - drainage systems will be prepared and then levelling out with topsoil and sand. The costs continue to be a major part of this and so we are continuing to seek funding for this phase of the project. Our membership packages are still open and we thank everyone who has contributed to this to date. If you would like to avail of any of these packages, please contact any club officer or committee member for more information. Donations can also be made electronically - bank details available from Anne Kennedy & John Tooher. Please be sure to include your details if transferring money to this dedicated fundraising account.
