Kilruane MacDonaghs Notes August 15th 2022

Senior

We play Nenagh Éire Óg in the County championship in the Ragg on Sunday at 12.30pm. After the traumatic game against Clonoulty this is going to be a very difficult assignment  for the lads so it is very important that supporters travel in force and get behind the team.  Admission is by ticket only. A tap and go system will also operate.

 

 

 

U19

We chiselled out a 2-13 to 1-14 home victory over Newport in the quarter-final. There was very little between two evenly matched sides. We led by 2-6 to 1-7 at the interval with the goals coming from Jack Gleeson and Eoin Carroll.

Team: Kevin Naughnane (Capt), Eamonn Coonan, Ross Austin, Danny Cahalan, Ciarán Coffey, Jack Mulcahy (0-1), Paul Dwyer (0-1), Brian O’Meara, Rory Grace, Tristan Madden (0-2), Sean Hayes, Cian Moyles (0-1), Eoin Carroll (1-8, 1-4 frees & 0-1 65) Jack Gleeson (1-0), Cathal England, Subs: Níosa Minogue, Tadhg O’Brien.

On this Wednesday, 17th August we play a very formidable Moneygall/Clonakenny side in the semi-final in the Borrisoleigh at 7.00pm. Supporters are urged to get behind this team that has surpassed expectations to date. Admission is by ticket only. A tap and go system will also operate.

 

U15

Our first team played out an exciting draw with Éire Óg in Nenagh. We scored 5-12 while the home team put 4-15 on the board. Our second team made home advantage tell with a 2-6 to 1-4 victory over Newport.

 

U13

Both our teams enjoyed a great evening in the Aqua Splash, Dromineer on last Friday. A tremendous time was had by all on the water and the evening concluded with some very welcome refreshments.

 

U7

MacDonagh Park was the venue for a Blitz on last Friday evening  involving Newport, Ballinahinch and Kilruane MacDonaghs. Thanks to Newport and Ballinahinch for travelling.

 

Tipperary Draw

The Tipperary Draw will commence on Friday, 2nd September. There is a €500,000 prize fund. In the next few weeks we will be canvassing the parish to enlist existing members and recruit new subscribers. This is a very important fundraiser for the club and we are confident that we will get the usual solid support from our members. A total of €16,200 was won by our subscribers in the last Draw.

 

Inter County

Congratulations to Cillian Healy who played on the Tipperary U15 football team that had a 2-14 to 2-6 victory over Fermanagh in the Humphrey Kelleher Shield Final in Athlone on Saturday.

 

Lotto

The Jackpot now stands at a very attractive €2,800. Tickets are available from the usual outlets or  you can join on Clubforce.com. Thanks for your continued support.

 

Sympathy

The club extends sympathy to the Treacy family, Cloughjordan on the deaths of Bridie O’Connor (née Treacy) and Jimmy Treacy who both died in England.
