Toomevara recover to edge out Nenagh

Toomevara - North Junior 'A' Hurling League winners

Toomevara 0-22

Nenagh Eire Og 1-15


Report: Liam Hogan in Kilcolman


Toomevara had to produce a second half comeback of courage and heart to defeat great rivals Nenagh Eire Og in the North Tipperary Junior 'A' Hurling League final on Sunday evening.

Trailing 0-11 to 0-5 after twenty minutes, Toome earned their tenth league title as they outscored Nenagh for the remainder 0-17 to 1-4, in a game interrupted by treatment to a number of players because of head injuries, including the requirement of an ambulance for Toomevara's Colm Canning. The Toomevara centre forward was a victim of an accidental blow to the head in the 13th minute. Play was held up for at least five minutes. Thankfully the player walked off the field to a round of applause.

At the time, Nenagh’s lead was three points following Shane Nolan’s first of eight points from a free. Alan Ryan added another Toome score to leave the margin at two.

Earlier, Nenagh had dominated the play as they posted four unanswered points thanks to Shane Maher from play along with two Mark Tuite frees and another point from play by Cian O’Farrell.
