Camogie news:
U10s – The u 10s played in a county Go Games Blitz in Nenagh last Saturday. The Nenagh team played four very enjoyable games in which all of the panel fully participated in the Blitz true to the spirit of the Go Games which is designed to bring all players on at the same level and of course also to ensure that they get both enjoyment and recreation from their time at the club under the guidance of their coaches. Of course we couldn’t hold any of these blitzes without the assistance of the parents to who we are very great full for making the days hugely successful. Training continues Tuesdays and Fridays from 5.30 to 6.30

U14s – Toomevara will be their opponents in the County League Semi Final

U16s – The u 16s exited the county championship at the semi final stage against a very strong Cahir side. There was very little between them at half time but Cahir pulled away in the early part of the second half with Nenagh coming back strong in the last quarter hitting the post 3 times in succession. It wasn’t to be their day but they will be better for their efforts. This team who for the most part are underage again next year will learn from this season and will use that knowledge for next years campaign. They have improved as a team through the year and if they stay together and work hard they should be strong contenders for next seasons championship. Most of the panel will be on duty for the u 15 team who will be playing Toomevara in the League County semi final in September.

Minor – The minor team are getting themselves ready for their upcoming championship and they recently played a challenge game against Kildangan  winning 2-07 to 1-03. It was a great workout for the team who look forward to the upcoming championship.

Junior B – After the Munster Final plate success it was down to earth for them on Sunday when they drew 4-06 to 5-03 with St Cronins Roscrea in a hugely exciting game in McDonagh park on Sunday in the Junior B league. Nenagh were 5 points down going into injury time but they showed great resilience to score 1-02 to draw the game at the last minute. They were rattled by a very committed St Cronins team and they took some time to come to grips with the skill of the opposition. But this team is a team that figures things out and they kept at it to the end. Brenda O Sullivan who is a great addition to the club scored the equalizing point and Judy Mulqueen who is coming back from a long term bout of injuries scored a personal tally of 2-01.
