Senior: A superb performance from the Templederry Kenyons at Dolla brought the Blues’ reign as north Tipperary senior hurling champions to an end on Sunday evening (0-18 to 2-18). The Blues have already qualified for the last sixteen of the Clean Ireland Recycling County Senior Hurling Championship. The concluding stages of the county senior hurling championship will not take place until the respective divisional championships have been played. Nenagh Éire Óg would like to wish the Templederry Kenyons all the very best in the quarter-finals of the Hibernian Inn North Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship and in their quest to win a first-ever north title. To read a full match report on this game please see the club website:

Nenagh Éire Óg are scheduled to return to action in the Clean Ireland Recycling County Senior Hurling Challenge Cup in the coming weeks. The Blues have already progressed to the semi-finals of the Dr Fogarty Cup and have been drawn to face Lorrha-Dorrha in the last four. On the opposite side of the draw Burgess will take on Mullinahone. The clash with Lorrha-Dorrha is provisionally scheduled to take place in MacDonagh Park, Cloughjordan on Friday, June 19th at 7.30pm (extra-time will be played in the event of a draw). Please be advised that this fixture may change.

Junior A: The first round of the junior A hurling championship is scheduled to take place on the week-ending June 21st. This year the team is managed by Greg Browne (manager), Con Morris, Michael Ryan and Conor Ryan.

Junior B: The Nenagh Éire Óg junior B hurlers concluded their league campaign on Friday evening in Ballinderry when winning with eight points to spare against Shannon Rovers (1-16 to 0-11). The Blues missed out on qualification for the knock-out stages of the league, but the junior Bs concluded their league campaign in great style with good wins over Toomevara and Shannon Rovers. Indeed, the lads were misfortunate not to earn a dividend from the clashes with Newport, Moneygall and Portroe earlier in the campaign. On all three occasions Éire Óg suffered narrow defeats, but will face into the north championship in confident mood.

The first round of the Watch Centre North Tipperary junior B hurling championship is scheduled to take place on the week-ending June 21st or June 28th. This year the team is managed by Cian Tucker (manager), Mark Long, John Paul King and Paddy Flynn.

The Watch Centre Junior B Hurling Championship will be run on a two-group league system with the top team in each group progressing to the semi-finals and the second and third teams qualifying for the quarter-finals. Nenagh Éire Óg have been drawn in group two alongside Ballina, Portroe, Borrisokane, Toomevara and Lorrha-Dorrha. Éire Óg’s first game will be against Ballina. Meanwhile group one features Silvermines, Newport, Shannon Rovers, Kildangan, Moneygall and Borris-Ileigh.
