Nenagh Town Council has been urged to host a Night of Heroes to recognise local groups and individuals before it is abolished next year.

Nenagh Town Council has been urged to host a Night of Heroes to recognise local groups and individuals before it is abolished next year.

The call was made by Cllr Conor Delaney who is seeking a civic reception for Riverdale Ladies Pitch and Putt Club to honour their All-Ireland win.

Cllr Seamus Morris is seeking a reception for Nenagh Eire Og’s title winning minor hurlers as well as Junior B winners. Agreeing with Cllr Delaney, he said: “It is the only thing we can do. It is our highest honour and there won’t be any more when he are gone.”

Cllr Morris pointed out that there were a lot of volunteers in the town and “a lot of people keeping this town going”.

Cllr Hughie McGrath also suggested that a civic reception be given to the original committee that campaigned to have Nenagh Castle restored.
