Cumann na mBunscol: Congratulations to the St Mary’s Primary School under-11 team which captured the Cumann na mBunscol title last week in Semple Stadium, Thurles when defeating Boherlahan 6-2 to 3-1. The under-13 side, the following day, also played Boherlahan in their final however things did not go our way and we met a much stronger side eventually losing 4-6 to 1-1. We also want to congratulate Ardcroney National School on their great win in the under-13 decider when they beat Ballylooby 8-3 to 3-0. Éire Óg’s Meaghan Morris scored 3-1 of her school’s total while Breda Conroy was also a selector on the team. A special thank you goes to the teachers, principals and coaches of these teams for so generously volunteering their time to prepare and coach these players.

Under-10: It has been a very busy few days for the under-10 team. They travelled to Toomevara for a challenge on Wednesday last and played out a highly-entertaining draw. Thanks to Toomevara for the game. On Saturday Kildangan hosted us in a blitz where we played three games against Roscrea, Toomevara and Kildangan. Thanks to Kildangan for organising the event and for their wonderful hospitality. We will play Kilruane MacDonagh’s on Wednesday in a challenge game at Cloughjordan.

Féile na nGael: On Saturday our under-14 team travelled to Clara in Kilkenny to take part in the Féile na nGael. Before we headed off the club kindly presented all the players with a lovely Éire Óg top. We played three games and beat Glenmore of Kilkenny in our opening encounter. Unfortunately we were beaten in our next two matches by Good Council of Dublin and Charleville of Cork. We were treated extremely well by our hosts in Clara who put on a delicious spread for all the teams. When we returned to Nenagh the club also fed the players in the Hibernian Inn. We want to thank all the parents and supporters who travelled to support the girls, the management of Pat, Caitriona, Mairéad, Philip and Greg for all their hard work and the players themselves who’s brilliant behaviour and good humour throughout the day painted a very positive image of our club and town.

Under-15: The under-15 team travel to Éire Óg Annacarty for the opening match of the league this Wednesday at 7.30pm.

Minor: The minor team played a blitz in Carrig-Riverstown on Saturday last, playing four games. Thanks to Carrig-Riverstown for organising the event.

We played group games against Cobh, Knockavilla Kickhams and Bride Rovers recording a win, a draw and a loss to the eventual winners Bride Rovers. Many thanks to the parents who travelled down in support of the team. With some uncertainty surrounding the championship groupings it now appears that our first game will not take place until July 2nd away to Roscrea.
