Golf Classic: The Nenagh Éire Óg Golf Classic, which was kindly sponsored by Eddie Connolly Builders Nenagh Limited, took place at Nenagh Golf Club on Friday, August 14th. The event was deemed a terrific success with over forty teams participating. It was a glorious day weather-wise and some tremendous scoring featured during the competition. In the end the team representing Una Powell’s claimed the top prize – a huge well done goes out to team members James Kelly, David Reddan (snr), David Reddan (jnr) & Tom O’Donnell (score: 54.1). In second place was the team representing The Well (PJ Shanahan, Scott O’Brien, Ger Clifford & Jack Dunlea) on a score of 55.6. The Carey Glass International team claimed third prize – Paul Carey, John Hanly, Paddy Murphy & Niall Madden scored a cumulative 56.2. On the day Scott O’Brien (The Well) won the longest drive and the nearest the pin winner was Paschal Looney (Top Oil).

The event organisers were thrilled by the resounding support for the event from the local business community and wish to sincerely thank all team, prize and tee sponsors for their more than generous support. A special word of thanks also goes out to title sponsor Eddie Connolly Builders Nenagh Limited and, of course, to our hosts Nenagh Golf Club.

Thanks too to Alan and Heather who were responsible for the food on the day.

Commiserations: Our heartfelt commiserations go out this week to Barry Heffernan and the Tipperary senior hurling team who lost out to Galway in agonisingly circumstances in Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final at Croke Park, Dublin.

Senior: Liam Heffernan’s Blues will not return to championship action until the respective divisional championships reach a conclusion – Éire Óg have already qualified for the last sixteen of the Clean Ireland Recycling County Senior Hurling Championship. The respective divisional finals are expected to reach a conclusion on the week-ending Sunday, August 23rd. The draw is then expected to take place for the concluding stages of the county senior hurling championship.

Junior A: The Blues have completed the group stage of this year’s north Tipperary junior A hurling championship and unfortunately missed out on qualification for the knock-out stages of the competition. Éire Óg would like to wish Kildangan, Burgess and Kilruane MacDonagh’s all the very best for the remainder of the competition.

The junior A team was managed by Greg Browne (manager), Con Morris, Michael Ryan and Conor Ryan. The club would like to thank the management team and the players for representing the town of Nenagh, the club, their families and most importantly themselves in such a proud manner this season. Well done lads.

Junior B: On Saturday evening the junior B hurlers narrowly missed out on a place in the north Tipperary quarter-finals when suffering a two-point defeat against Shannon Rovers at MacDonagh Park, Nenagh (0-9 to 0-11). For a full match report on this entertaining contest please see the club website:

The Blues finished fourth in their group and narrowly missed out on the knock-out stages of this year’s championship. Éire Óg would like to wish Ballina, Lorrha-Dorrha and Shannon Rovers all the very best for the remainder of the championship.

This year the Éire Óg junior B team was managed by Cian Tucker (manager), Mark Long, John Paul King and Paddy Flynn. The club would like to thank the management team and the players for representing the town of Nenagh, the club, their families and most importantly themselves in such a proud manner this season. Well done lads.

Minor A: Nenagh Éire Óg are waiting on the result of the Portroe versus Roscrea game, which is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, August 19th, to know their fate in the knock-out stages of this year’s championship. Newport Gaels lead group one on seven points, Éire Óg are second on five points, Roscrea are third on four points, Portroe are fourth on two points and Borris-Ileigh are fifth on zero points. Roscrea have one remaining game to play – should they win that encounter Roscrea will leapfrog Éire Óg into second place. The result of that game will determine the Blues’ seeding in the quarter-finals.

The 2015 competition is based on a two-group structure – the respective group winners progress to the semi-finals while the second and third-placed teams qualify for the quarter-finals. Group two has come to a conclusion. Kildangan have won that group with a one hundred per cent record with Toomevara second and Kilruane third. Burgess finished fourth. Therefore Kildangan have qualified for the semi-finals while Toomevara and Kilruane are through to the quarter-finals.

If Éire Óg finish second in the group they will face Kilruane MacDonagh’s in the quarter-finals and if the Blues finish third in their group they will face Toomevara with a place in the semi-finals up for grabs.

Nenagh Éire Óg manager John Manley is joined on the management team by selectors Derek Lillis, Christy McLoughlin and Paudie Gleeson.

Hard luck to our under-14 hurlers who bowed out of the championship at the semi-final stage to a strong Roscrea side on Saturday. After a thrilling hours hurling, which went to extra time, the Roscrea men advanced to the final on a scoreline of 6-9 to 3-14. The lads put in a gallant effort and have to be commended for getting themselves back in to the game after the first half concession of goals to go a point in front in the dying minutes. However, The Reds levelled the game from a free in the fourth minute of injury time and finished the stronger in extra time. The Development squad will have a challenge game next week, while the under-13 players have the Under-13 Plate competition to look forward to in the next couple of weeks.
