Cllr Seamus Morris led the tributes to Nenagh AFC on winning the FAI Umbro Junior Cup this month, saying the club was now on a par with Home Farm and St Patrick’s Athletic.
“This was a huge breakthrough. The coaching structure is fantastic and the facilities are fantastic,” he said.
Thanking the council for their support, he warned that the club still needed their help as it had a huge debt to clear.
Cllr Lalor McGee praised Cllr Virginia O’Dowd for organising the Visit Nenagh.ie Classic, and she said a lot of the credit went to the committee and Rene van Dam.
