CAMOGIE

Junior: Our Junior team played Silvermines in an entertaining game on Sunday last in the league. Our girls battled back from a six-point deficit to earn a draw at 2-7 a-piece. Holly O'Brien and Julie Moylan got the Nenagh goals while centre-back Zoey Gratton landed a monster point from sixty yards in the 57th minute to tie the game.
