Contact any club officer for further information.

U10: We finished the year with a skills competition on Saturday last, this proved very enjoyable and it was evident that the skill levels of the boys much improved during the year, see pictures on website. Many thanks to John Phelan. Conor O’Donovan, Enda Murphy and Eamon Spillane for organising and for their work with this group during the year.

Minor: The very best of luck from the juvenile club to our minor team who play the county final on this Saturday.
Summary of 2011 for Nenagh Eire Og Camogie club.
2011 was another successful year in the relatively short history of the club. The club has now 160 members with the vast majority of them being playing members.
Our growing numbers of u 8s and u 10s have enjoyed a great year of learning the skills of Camogie and gaining friendships from different nationalities in the community that is Nenagh Eire Og Camogie club. They continue to improve and enjoy themselves under expert tuition in a controlled and safe environment.
Our u 12s had two very competitive teams and they had a very good year with the A team winning the A county final against Newport. It is a very well balanced team with stars on every line. There was a lot of work done during the year and it paid off with the county final win.
The u 14s had the heartbreak of losing  two county finals in the A division this year. This takes it to four county finals in two years, coming out of last years B competition it was quite an achievement to qualify for both county finals again this year  this time at A level .As a club we need to kick on and turn around these narrow defeats into victories.
The U 15s got to the County A semi final and lost out after an epic battle against a very experienced Toomevara team. This team has plenty of ability and will be the cornerstone of the clubs drive forward to contest A competitions at Minor level in years to come.
U16s lost out at County B semi final stage to a wonderful Cahir team after giving their all throughout the year. Like the u 15s they will provide forward thrust into contesting Minor A competitions in years to come
Our Minors had a tough year at B grade but it was a learning experience for this very young team
Our Junior B team won the Munster plate final and lost out to a very experienced Borrisoleigh team in the county Quarter Final. It was a historic year for this team who won the clubs first ever adult competition against Kilishen of Clare. After a wonderful game Nenagh won out 2-05 to 3-0 .Team Captain Mary Dillo  lifted the clubs first adult Trophy to scenes of absolute joy in the home ground of Mac Donagh park. This team has been the driving force for the club because they had to suffer terrible defeats over the years because of their inexperience. They never dropped their heads and continued on the slow and sometimes painful path of gaining experience from every defeat and using it to their advantage. They are a perfect example of patience and dedication to their cause, which was to get their day in the sun which they grasped firmly with both hands.
St Marys Convent Nenagh who is an important part of the clubs production line won the u 11 and u 13 A Cumhann Na mBunscoil finals and St Marys Secondary school won the senior A league with an ever growing number of Nenagh Eire Og team members.
The club had an increasing presence on Tipperary Panels throughout the year. Hazel McAuliffe and Maeve Coffey represented their schools in the Primary Games. Grace O Brien Michelle Collins and Rachel Maher represented the club at u 14 level. Alanna Morris Holly O Brien and Aileen Duggan represented the club at u 16 level while Ciara McGrath represented the club at Minor Intermediate and Senior levels.
Alanna Morris and Aileen Duggan won Munster and All Ireland honours with the Tipperary u 16 team while Ciara McGrath won an All Ireland medal with the Tipperary Minors. These All Ireland Medals are the first three All Ireland medals won by Nenagh Eire Og club players while Ciara McGrath represented a club from Nenagh on the Tipperary Senior for the first time in 50 Years.
W e would like to thank all our committee and team  managers and coaches for their hard work during the year, our sponsors who keep us in the beautiful gear that we wear, the Tipperary Management who have faith in our players the County Board for doing a magnificent job this year The Referees for keeping the show on the road the Schools who train our players to better levels of expertise Nenagh C.B.S for use of their grounds and of course our partners Nenagh Eire Og who like a big brother to us and last but not least the MacDonagh park committee who keep the pitches in order.
A special appeal to anyone that has any video d.v.d coverage of any Nenagh Eire Og Camogie ganes or presentations or photographs as we are in the process of collecting and saving everything for future Historians of the club. Please contact Enda at  083 334337
