The u 16s had a great win against Moneygall in Nenagh with a resounding 3-11 to 1-1 scoreline. The team carried on from the Silvermines win with a great team performance and they also showed the energy levels of a team that has put in a lot of hard work pre season. The scorers were G Morris 1-2 C McGrath 0-4 D Harrington 1-1 H O Brien 1-1 J Maher 0-1 A Morris 0-1 A Duggan 0-1 They then totally collapsed against a strong Kilruane team in Ardcroney losing 6-3 to 1-4 with the scorers being A Morris 0-4 C McGrath 1-0. Next up was the county semi final against Thurles in the Ragg last Monday week. This was a very entertaining game with a very high level of skill and determination shown from both teams. Thurles got off to a great start scoring 2-1 to Nenaghs 0-1 in the first half. The scoreline merely reflected the amount of saves by the Thurles goalkeeper who was having a huge say in the match time and time again she saved Thurles who were under severe pressure from a determined Nenagh side. The second half was all Nenagh pressure and they outscored Thurles 1-5 to 0-5 and should have scored more only for the Brilliance of the Thurles goalkeeper who could retire on a high such was her performance. In the end Nenagh threw everything at Thurles but fell just short to the eventual county champions. The girls fell just short but they had a great season where they trained very hard and showed that they are a team for the future where we will have more victories than defeats .

Junior b had a losses away to Silvermines and at home to Newport and a win away against Cahir as they consolidate themselves as a team that is growing in confidence with each game. The last game against Newport proved that the team are relying on a group of girls that are full of enthusiasm but are just too young and Newport exposed that with their experience and psysichicality. The girls never gave up and fought until the end but one would have to wonder if it is fair to put such a young team up against such experience. Well done to Mikey Heffernan Hugh Moloney and Paddy Murphy on their recent All Ireland successes we are proud of them. The club would like to thank Duffys circus who made 200 tickets available through the Mayor Of Nenagh to the club. We had a great night out at the circus which was high quality entertainment we would encourage people to take time out to visit this event while it is in town.
