50 Year Anniversary
This year, the Camogie club turns 50 and part of the week-long celebrations will include tournaments for different age groups, commencing Monday 5th August. The week will finish with a gathering in Nenagh Golf Club on Saturday night, 10th August where we will honour the first club camogie team of 1969, who won North Final in 1970, along with the Junior team of 1984, who won a 7-a-side County League title.

7-a-side success
Congratulations to our Intermediate team who followed their County League win by emerging victorious in Kildangan’s annual 7-a-side tournament hosted in Puckaun recently. Preparations for championship continue both on the field and with Shane Nevin as August approaches.
