Sympathy 

CLG Tulach Sheasta extends sympathy to the family of the late Billy O'Keeffe. Billy played with Newport teams in the late 1950's and early 60's. Players of former generations will remember togging out at the butt of O'Keeffe's ditch behind the goals at Lacken Park, before dressing rooms were built in 1970. They will also recall often having to climb over that same ditch to retrieve the sliotar in O'Keeffe's field, sometimes having to 'negotiate' with Billy before getting it back. Later, the club purchased that plot on which now stands the club house opened in 1998. Billy served as caretaker of the Park for a term and often helped with field maintenance.

Sympathy is also extended to the family of the late Barry Gleeson of Birdhill.  Barry was interested in all sports and Tipperary Hurling was one of his great passions. The Gleeson family has a long tradition of involvement in local GAA Clubs over a number of generations.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh siad beirt.

 

Under 9’s 

Our Under 9's finished off their season with a match v Monaleen in Lacken Park on Sunday morning. Well done to all of the children on their performances throughout the year & for all the work they put in to develop their skills. Also a big thank you to all the coaches that helped out during the year & to the parents for taking the time to bring your children to training & matches.

Junior Football
Newport played their County Junior Football quarter final against JK Brackens last Saturday. They lost by just 2 points and were unlucky as 3 key players went off injured during the game which weakened our team. Hard luck lads.

Under 15 Hurling
Newport Hurlers competed in the u15 Plate Competition last Sunday morning in Borrisleigh. They first came up against Moneygall-Clonakenny in the semi final. After a very even first half where the sides were level at 2 points each, Newport came out all guns blazing in the second half and bagged two goals from Stephen Coffey and Jack Ryan Cooper. They stuck to the task gamely and kept their lead with some great defending of Moneygall's threatening attacks, especially from Thomas Byrne, Niall Duffy and Colm O'Malley while Oisín Kennedy pulled off some fantastic saves to secure the victory for Newport on a scoreline of 2-3 to 0-5.

The final was played shortly after with Newport coming up against a very strong and determined Lorrha Rovers Gaels. After an even first 10 minutes, Lorrha broke away and got two quick-fire goals from which they never looked back. Final Score : Lorrha Rovers Gaels 4-2 Newport 0-2. 

Well done to Lorrha on the victory. Also well done to the Newport players who have made great strides this year in their development. Finally, thanks to the North Bórd na nÓg for organising a very worthwhile competition.
