November 8, 2018


Senior: Our senior hurlers recorded a comfortable win over Silvermines in round four of the championship on Saturday evening last. The Blues now progress to the quarter-final stage where we play one of the divisional winners – final score: 1-21 to 0-8. The quarter-final draw will take place in two weeks’ time with the quarter-finals scheduled to take place on the week-ending September 14th-15th.

Éire Óg join divisional champions Kildangan (north), Éire Óg Annacarty-Donohill (west), Drom & Inch (mid) and Killenaule (south) in the last eight. Loughmore-Castleiney beat Roscrea (0-21 to 2-11) in the fourth round of the county championship on Saturday evening while there are two remaining games in round four (Borris-Ileigh v Carrick & Toomevara v Clonoulty-Rossmore). In the quarter-finals the divisional champions will be seeded.

Junior A: Our junior A team completed the group stage of their championship on Friday evening last with a 2-19 to 3-9 victory over Moneygall. As a result Éire Óg topped their group and progress straight to the semi-finals. The semi-final opposition should be known later this week. On Friday Toomevara face Kildangan in one quarter-final while on Sunday Knockshegowna take on Kilruane MacDonagh’s.

Minor A: Our minor hurlers have completed the group stage of their championship following last week’s win over Kildangan. The semi-final opposition should be known later this week – depending on result of the Roscrea-Kildangan game this week Éire Óg could face Borris-Ileigh, Newport Gaels or Kildangan at the semi-final stage. Toomevara finished second in the group and will play third-placed Roscrea in their respective semi-final.

Hard Luck: We extend our commiserations to former Éire Óg stalwart John Flannery who was a member of the Shannon Rovers panel which lost the north Tipperary intermediate hurling final to Ballina on Sunday evening.

Thanks: Unfortunately the Nenagh Éire Óg junior B team has been withdrawn from the championship. The club would like to thank manager Derek Lillis and all the players for their fantastic efforts this year.


Under-14: Our under-14 team defeated Toomevara on Thursday evening last in the north semi-final – the final score was 3-9 to 2-9. Our boys now qualify for the north final against Roscrea. This game takes place on Wednesday, August 28th at 6.30pm in MacDonagh Park, Cloughjordan. Please come out and support the team. Also, best wishes to Jake Morris and Mark O’Farrell who travel to Waterford with the Tipperary under-14 team which will participate in the Tony Forristal tournament on Saturday, August 31st.

Under-8: The under-8 team welcomed Borris-Ileigh to Nenagh for a fun and entertaining challenge match on Saturday morning. A great time was had by all.

Under-10: Our thanks to the Silvermines club for hosting an under-10 challenge match on Thursday last. There will be a slight change in training times this Wednesday to enable the boys to go to the under-14 north final. Training will be from 5pm to 6pm.

Under-16: The re-scheduled Roscrea fixture will not now go ahead and Nenagh have been handed a walk-over. There is still the final league match against Kilruane to be played with no date set as yet.

Recycling Drive: Please bring your unwanted clothing, bedding, curtains and shoes to the clubhouse on Saturday, August 31st from 10-4pm to take part in our Recycling Fundraising Drive. All proceeds go to the juvenile club and in turn back to the boys.


Minor: The minor team defeated Kilruane MacDonagh’s 2-16 to 0-08 last Monday in the championship. They play Silvermines this Thursday at 7pm in Nenagh.


Congratulations to Sinéad Meagher who is the new Munster under-13 singles champion. She beat Cork opponents in the 60 x 30 competition last Saturday. She now joins her sister, Eimear Meagher, who recently won the Munster under-14 singles 60 x 30 title. This is a great achievement for the club and these very talented girls. Hard luck to Aaron Hogan and Eoin Meagher who reached the Munster semi-finals of the under-17 doubles before losing out to Limerick opponents.

We all wish the very best of luck to Munster representatives, Nenagh coach Eamon Spillane and partner Gerry Foley of Ballinahinch as they take on Monaghan and Ulster winners in the All-Ireland semi-final of the Emerald Masters competition in Cavan on Saturday.
