Nenagh Eire Og – Club Notes – July 20, 2021

U19 Hurling

Our U19s were defeated by Silvermines last Wed evening in their final group game. The score in the game was 3–16 to 3–15 with Ben West (2) and Jamie Cottrell getting the goals. The boys put in a great performance, in particular when they were reduced to 14 early in the second half, and were unlucky to lose out with the Mines getting a late goal.

Junior Hurling

The Junior As had a good win over Roscrea in the final group game of the league last Fri evening. The score in the game was 2-18 to 1-15 with Craig Hilmi and Darragh Walsh scoring the goals. This win means we topped the group and have qualified for the final of the Junior A League –  the final, against Roscrea, takes place next Saturday evening at 7pm in Moneygall.

The Junior A Championship is due to start on 31st July with the Junior B Championship due to begin on 6th August.


Last Monday night’s lotto was worth €6,000, our highest jackpot to date.  The format of the lotto will change from next Monday night when we will revert to drawing lucky dip prizes – there will be three draws for €50 when the jackpot is not won. Please support our lotto by playing online through the link on the club website.


Well done to Callan Scully and the Tipperary U20 footballers who beat Waterford in the Munster semi final last Thursday night. They now play Cork in the Munster final on Thursday July 22nd in Semple Stadium and we wish Callan and the Tipperary team the best of luck in the final.

Well done also to Taurai, Sam, Mason and the Tipp minor hurlers who beat Kerry in the Munster championship last week.

The Tipperary U20 hurlers were due to play Cork in the Munster semi final last night (Tuesday) – Conor Hennessy and Sean Phelan are members of this panel.

Commiserations to Barry, Jake and the Tipperary senior hurlers who lost out to Limerick in the Munster final at the weekend.


The new defibrillator has now been installed on the outside wall of the complex and is now accessible to all in the community. All groups within the club have contributed to this most important piece of equipment and fundraising will continue with the walking group climbing Keeper Hill in August to raise funds.

Tipperary Draw

We had two winners in the Tipperary draw which took place last Friday night – congratulations to Denis Parker who won €1000 and Niamh Hannon won €200. The last draw in the 2020/21 draw takes place on Fri 6th August and the new draw will start up again at the end of September.

Club Development/Hurling Wall

After all the planning and preliminary work over the past number of months, the new hurling wall started last Monday – this is great news for the club and everyone who has supported this development. Thanks to those who have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to get us to this stage – it is hoped that the wall will be completed by the end of August.

We thank everyone who has contributed to this phase of our development project. Any remaining donations can be paid over to your fundraising representative, any amount is welcome and appreciated. Outstanding tax forms associated with your donation should be given to your fundraising representative along with details of the names you wish to have included on the club development jigsaw wall.

Nenagh Éire Óg Cúl Camp

What a glorious week we had to compliment a hugely successful cúl camp at Nenagh Éire Óg.

The children welcomed some very talented & special guests throughout the week, Michelle Barry from the Nenagh Éire Óg senior camogie team and the very talented Grace O’Brien from the Tipperary senior and Nenagh Éire Óg senior camogie teams, Callan Scully from the Tipperary Under 20 football team and Conor Hennessy from the Tipperary Under 20 hurling team. The children were lucky enough to have Colm Fogarty as one of their great coaches for the week, Colm is from Lorrha and is on the Tipperary Under 20 hurling team. Sincere thank you to all of the stars for kindly giving their time to drop in and chat to the children.
