The AGM of the camogie club recently took place at the Nenagh Eire Og Complex . The club had a very successful ending to the year with the Intermediateteam capturing the County final and therefore bringing the club into the Senior grade for the first time in the clubs short history of competing in adult Camogie having only won the Junior B title in 2013.  This came about through the hard work , dedication and vision of past and present committees and players and the club are deeply grateful for their work and vision from the day the club was first formed . It wasn’t easy along the way and players who were less successful were very much part of the foundation stones of the Intermediate success late last year.

The committee thanked all the coaches in the club who have given their time freely during the year . The new committee was formed with Catriona Morris as Chairperson , Marie Sheedy Vice Chairperson , Liam McGrath P R O , Liz Duggan Secretary , Séamie Morris P R O , Mark Hassett Child Welfare officer , the committee members are Kieran O Brien , Pat Sheridan, Denise Morris , Tom MacAuliffe , Louise Hickey and Catherine Kennedy . The club thanked two extraordinary committee members who were stepping away , Marie O Brienwho was given a presentation by the club for her incredible work as Treasurer and Enda O Sullivan was wished well in his new Role as P R O for Tipperary football . Both will be missed.
