Grace O'Brien will join the coaching team for Nenagh Éire Óg's summer camp
Junior: Hard luck to our Junior B hurlers who exited the championship last weekend following a 1-21 to 1-5 loss to Lorrha, our second half goal coming from Sean McTiernan. Thanks to all players and the management team for their work with this group all year.
Senior: Following their first round draw against Clonoulty, our senior hurlers will play Moycarkey Borris in Round 2 of the County Championship this Friday at 7pm in The Ragg.
Under 19: Our u19s were out on Wednesday against Silvermines and again holidays took their toll. The ’Mines started well and looked like they would inflict a heavy defeat on Nenagh. As half-time approached, we trailed by nine points. However, a very spirited second-half saw this very young squad hold their own in the second half and reduce the deficit to seven by full-time. They now play Roscrea in the quarter-final of the North Championship on Wednesday at 7pm in Roscrea.
Lotto: This week's lotto Jackpot was €3,000. In the coming week, you will be able to play our lotto in the following businesses around the town, JKCs, Centra, The HiB, Rockys and Andys. So keep an eye out for our new “lotto bins” in these premises and please continue to support our lotto. You can also continue to play our lotto online or contact any committee member.
Development update: It was great to see the diggers back in MacDonagh Park this week when work on the development of the new full sized pitch started; it is hoped that this work will be complete by the end of September.
