Healthy club initiative: Our thanks to former Tipperary hurler John Leahy on giving a superb enlightening talk titled ‘Substance Awareness” last Saturday evening in the Complex. He spoke to the many teenagers in attendance and their parents about the dangers of substance abuse at a young age and also gave a fascinating insight into his own sporting life both on and off the field.

Tipperary: Sunday was a very proud day for the club as Alanna Morris became the second player from Nenagh Éire Óg (Ciara McGrath being the first) to play a competitive game for the county senior side as she came on at corner back in the league game on Sunday in The Ragg against Galway. We hope this will be the beginning of many appearances in the senior set up from Alanna. We also send our congratulations to the county minor side who won against Kilkenny, the reigning all Ireland champions, by two points. Grace O Brien and Hazel McAuliffe both played and had fine games while we also had three more players on the panel, Ruth Hassett, Maeve Coffey and Sarah Quigley.

Under 16: Training continues for this panel every Tuesday evening in the complex in MacDonagh Park at 7pm in the hall.
