Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
Both our Junior groups were in action at the weekend with both teams losing out. Our Junior As played the final round of the League last Fri night against Borrisoleigh and lost on a scoreline of 5 - 20 to 4 - 12 with Craig Hilmi getting two goals and Niall Madden and Brian Maxwell getting the other two. This defeat means we do not qualify for the knockout stages of the league so attention now turns to the North Championship which begins in the middle of June.
Our Junior Bs played Kiladangan on Saturday evening last in Puckane and were defeated by 15 points to 8. This group has one final group game to play which is against Portroe on Sat 21st May.
Our seniors are due to play the final round of the Co League next weekend against JK Brackens. The game is fixed for Sun next,15th May at 12pm in MacDonagh Park.
The Under 19s will play Kiladangan in the Hurling League on Wed evening at 7pm in Puckane.
As part of the Official Opening of the new Hurling Wall last week,the Patrons Jigsaw was unveiled which contains all the names of those who generously donated to this phase of the development. We thank Carey Glass who generously sponsored this, to Paul Geaney for his work on the graphic design of the piece and to Johnny Kavanagh and his team for their work in installing it. This is a marvellous piece of work and well worth paying a visit to have a look!

Well done to Sam O'Farrell and the Tipperary minor hurlers who beat Waterford last week to secure a place in the Munster Final. They now play Clare in the final on this Wed in the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick at 7.30. We wish Sam and the Tipperary team the very best of luck in the final - Sam plays wing back and captains the team.
Hard luck to Josh Keller who was on the Tipperary U20 team who lost the Munster Final to Limerick last week and to Barry Heffernan and Jake Morris who were on the Tipperary team who lost out to Limerick in Round 3 of the Munster Senior Championship at the weekend.
We extend our sympathies to the Hayes family and to Nenagh Ormond Rugby Club on the sudden passing of Keith Hayes at the weekend - Keith was current president of Nenagh Ormond. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
