In 2014 Nenagh Éire Óg catered for over 400 active members (170 juvenile, 225 adult) and in 2015 we hope to grow that number. Crucially, however, we are not simply interested in developing our playing population. We are also interested in attracting volunteers who are interested in becoming coaches with the club and administrators of the club.

Here at Éire Óg we appreciate that not everyone can train a team, that not everyone is interested in coaching and that not everyone has time to attend committee meetings. That said there are plenty of very practical ways in which you can help your club work hard for the betterment of the local community, our children and our cultural heritage.

We therefore encourage anyone in the community who supports the club and who is prepared to give of their time on a voluntary basis to get involved so that fresh faces can bring fresh ideas forward. If you take that brave first step over the threshold, we guarantee that you will not regret it. So, if you are interested in lending a hand drop us a line – contact us:



Éire Óg will be running a 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 (087 637 3830) or Catherine (086 085 5165) for more information or to register before January 31st.

The juvenile club will hold its annual flag day on Saturday, January 31st and Sunday, February 1st. Please give an hour of your time for this important fundraiser.
