Well Done: A huge well done goes out to the Éire Óg juvenile club and everyone associated with the Éire Ógres programme of events which was launched on Saturday at MacDonagh Park. Sixty of the best-behaved boys in Nenagh showed up and put their all into the drills and skills which were laid out around the complex hall. Éire Óg will be running an Éire Ógres GAA camp for beginners for four Saturdays in February beginning on the 7th from 10am to 11am at the MacDonagh Park complex. This free Éire Ógres programme is perfect for boys born 2008-2010 to help improve their hand-eye coordination and agility in a safe and fun environment. No equipment necessary. Tea and coffee will be provided for parents. The boys will be presented with a cert and a special Éire Ógres t-shirt on completion of the course – call or text Shane Connolly (087 637 3830) or Catherine McTiernan (086 085 5165) for more information.
