The 2015 competition is based on a two-group structure – the respective group winners progress to the semi-finals while the second and third-placed teams qualify for the quarter-finals. The Nenagh Éire Óg minor A hurling team were drawn in group one of the North Tipperary minor A hurling championship alongside Roscrea, Newport Gaels, Borris-Ileigh and Portroe.

Portroe are fourth (played three, minus 18) on two points and Borris-Ileigh are fifth on zero points with three games played (minus 9). The Blues’ final group game will be against Roscrea on Wednesday, August 5th in Toomevara at 7pm. The minor hurlers would appreciate your support in Toomevara. The result of this game will determine Éire Óg’s seeding in the knock-out stages of the competition.

Meanwhile group two has come to a conclusion. Kildangan have won that group with a 100 per cent record with Toomevara second and Kilruane third. Burgess finished fourth in that group on zero points.
