Junior: Well done to our Junior Bs who opened their championship campaign with a one point win over Borrisokane last Sat evening. The score in the game was 1-18 to 2-14 with Brian Duffy getting the first half goal. This group now play Knockshegowna in Round 2 which will take place in July.

The Junior As will play Toomevara in Round 3 of the Championship next Friday at 7.30pm in Borrisoleigh.

Tipperary: Well done to Sam O’Farrell and the Tipperary minors who had a thrilling win over Galway in the All-Ireland semi-final on Sunday last. Sam had a fine game at wing back and will now go on to captain this team in the All-Ireland final against Offaly on July 2. Well done to all involved.

Feile Handball: Saturday, June 18, saw Nenagh Handball Club players play in the All-Ireland Handball Feile U15 Section in Tinryland, Carlow. After many nights training, challenge matches and under the tutelage of Eamonn Spillane they didn’t leave the scene empty handed.

Having been beaten by the very strong and eventual winners in the first match, they regrouped successfully playing with great skill, determination and shrewdness to win all their remaining duels securing bronze medal position.

With four out of the five players still underage next year this experience will no doubt lead to even greater progress in the future. Congratulations to all the players and gratitude to Eamonn Spillane for his time and coaching expertise.

Lotto: Last Monday night’s lotto jackpot was €2,400. The lotto can be played either online via the link on the club website and social media sites or by contacting any committee member to join up for one or multiple draws.
