Under-8 & Under-10: Special football training continues on Tuesdays for

under-8 and under-10 boys. Hurling training is on Wednesday at 5.15pm.

Full attendance required as there is a Community Games match on Saturday at 11am against Templemore – more information from management.

Under-12: Our under-12A footballers enjoyed a 3-3 to 2-5 win away to Toomevara on Friday. They play their final group match against the Silvermines on Friday in Nenagh at 6.30pm. Training continues on Mondays at 5.30pm and Wednesdays at 6.30pm until further notice.

Under-14: The under-14 footballers have had a busy week. On Easter Monday they travelled to Dolla for the Peil na nÓg competition, but unfortunately bowed out in the semi-final to a more clinical Borrisokane side on a scoreline of 2-4 to 1-2. On Wednesday the lads travelled to Borrisokane to take on the same opposition in the first round of the championship. A much better performance saw the Blues reverse Monday's result on a scoreline of 2-6 to 0-3 with man-of-the match Callan Scully making a number of fine saves in goal, including a penalty towards the end of the game. We play Toomevara in the semi-final of the Féile na nGael hurling on Saturday, April 18th at 3pm in Borrisoleigh. Best of luck to the boys!

Under-16: Our boys enjoyed their second win in the championship last week with a 3-15 to 2-6 victory over Borrisokane in Nenagh. Nenagh led

1-7 to 2-2 at half-time following a poacher’s goal from Killian Malone and the accurate shooting of Jake Morris. The team raised their performance in the second half and a well-taken goal from Scott O'Brien put the result beyond doubt. Key performers for Nenagh were Daniel O’Donovan and Conor Bonar while Cian O'Brien and Ethan O'Brien defended well throughout. The team would like to wish Conor Bonar a speedy recovery from his recent injury.


The best of luck to Katie Morris and Sinéad Meagher who continue through the rounds of the juvenile nationals this weekend – Katie is travelling to Monaghan while Sinéad is playing in Kingscourt, Cavan.
