Challenge Cup: Nenagh Éire Óg suffered a defeat in their opening competitive fixture of the year when losing by five points (2-11 to

1-19) to an impressive Kildangan at MacDonagh Park, Nenagh on Sunday afternoon. Kildangan will now progress to face the Templederry Kenyons in the next round while Nenagh Éire Óg will take on Boherlahan-Dualla who lost to Ballingarry (1-8 to 1-17) in the opening round of this year’s competition.

County Championship: The schedule of matches for the forthcoming Clean Ireland Recycling County Senior Hurling Championship were confirmed last week by the CCC – in the opening round Éire Óg will face the Templederry Kenyons, then Ballina and, finally, Clonoulty-Rossmore during the group stage of this year’s championship. The structure of the season would suggest that Éire Óg will face Toomevara in the opening round of the Hibernian Inn North Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship in May prior to the third round of the county senior hurling championship. The club will confirm the dates, times and venues for those encounters as soon as they become available.


Congratulations: Well done to Barry Heffernan and Donnacha Quinn who won the Fresher’s All-Ireland hurling title with the University of Limerick at Mallow on Thursday, March 5th. UL, managed by Limerick’s Gary Kirby, beat University College Cork after extra-time on a 1-24 to 1-18 scoreline.
