The Junior B team have competed extremely well in the first Munster League and in their last game narrowly lost to Ennis in Ennis after a few home town decisions . They then travelled to Kilmallock to play the home team in the Munster plate semi final. It turned out to be a wonderful game with both sides evenly matched both on the scoreboard and on the field of play. Nenagh opened brightly and Roisin O Brien after receiving a hand pass from Aileen Duggan unleashed a bullet from thirty yards into the back of the net for as good a goal as you would see. At half time Nenagh Eire Og led 1-03 to 0-2 with the aid of a stiff breeze. The second half Kilmallock upped their game and raced into a two point lead early in the second half. Danielle Harrington replied with a well taken point. Laura McKenna was inspiritational  in the Nenagh goal seeing off attack after attack aided by Donna Mitchell Claire Collins Mary Dillon and Alice Darcy. After intense pressure Nenagh managed to salvage a draw and a replay on home territory in McDonagh park Monday 25th July at 7 o clock. This team deserves a huge crowd to turn up to support them for their fantastic efforts already this year.  Panel Laura McKenna Claire Collins Catriona O Connor Donna Mitchell Alice Darcy Mary Dillon © Sarah Maher Mikaela Gleeson Stephanie Browne Rebecca White Aileen Duggan Niamh Costello Bridget White Danielle Harrington Gemma Morris Roisin O Brien Louise Hickey Jessica Maher  
Camogie lost two great advocates last week with the tragic deaths of Gerry Slevin and Mikey Browne. Both men worked very hard to place Camogie where it deserves to be in Tipperary, on an equal footing with Hurling. Both men aided with amazing Camogie clubs and volunteers up and down the county have seen the quality of coaching and competitions improve out of sight.Under their gentle guidance Gerry using his media skills and contacts to ease Camogie into the minds of naysayers as a sport deserving of equality. Mikey used his skill to help his beloved Cashel to club titles and not sitting on his laurels he became County Chairman driving on the success of the game in Tipperary. They were helped of course by a wonderful bunch of players under the guidance of 5 time All Star Michael Cleary when they won a number of All Irelands. Both men go on to join the wonderful Biddy Phillips but their efforts will reap rewards for decades to come. May they rest in peace.
