President's Visit: Tulach Sheasta celebrated two important milestones in the club with the visit of  Uachtarán CLG, John Horan to Newport on Friday 15th March. Following a quick bite to eat at the busy Matt The Threshers in Birdhill, John was whisked away to Lacken Park where he performed the official opening of the new Hurling Wall & Astro Turf which he described as one of the best facilities he has seen in any club in the country. It was a fitting tribute to our Development Officer James Flanagan and everybody else who put in many hours of hard work to have this magnificent facility completed and available to all our players. Also present was Fr Delaney who blessed the new development and members of the Under 14 hurling team then gave a display of drills and skills, undeterred by the wind and rain. The next port of call was the Freigh Inn for the launch of the updated club history ‘By The Mulcaire Banks.’ 
The singers from Mulcaire Men’s Shed opened the evening with a rousing rendition of Newport Town and in keeping with the theme of the occasion, songs detailing the victories of the 1957, 1965 and 1996 Newport teams were sung by Terry O’Brien, Timmy Floyd and Sean Shinners. Speakers included James Collins (Club Chairman), John Devane (Co Chairman), Michael Collins & Denis Floyd (authors) and John Horan who spoke of the importance of the GAA Club in the community, the handing on of the baton from generation to generation and the admirable work of the officers and leaders of the club over the years in fostering the ideals of Cumann Luthchleas Gael. 
Majella Coffey (club secretary) made a presentation to John Horan of a ‘Pónaire Hamper’ from our local Coffee Roastery & Café.  The evening’s entertainment concluded with a magnificent performance from our Scór na bPáistí instrumental music groups. 

The club would sincerely like to thank Denis Floyd & Michael Collins for all the hard work & long hours they put into getting this magnificent record of the history of Newport GAA published, Mary Bourke for retyping Volume 1, Maurice Kirby of Mulcair Print for all his advice, help & professionalism, the management & staff of Nenagh Guardian whose records were an invaluable resource and always available to peruse, the current & past officers of the club for all their encouragement to finish the publication & their assistance with keeping & providing club records required to publish the book. Thanks also to the players, officers, mentors past & present who provided vivid memories, stories & photos to make the book a fitting tribute to all who have played a part in the history of our club. We are also indebted to local people and all those with Newport affiliations who, through their patronage, provided generous funding to help defray the cost of the publication. 

The club would also like to thank our secretary Majella Coffey for all the work she put in to organising a very successful evening & the ladies who helped with the catering. Thanks, too, to  John Delaney for the excellent video presentation of photos and interviews on the night. 

Well done to Martin Ryan (L) who won a free copy of ‘By The Mulcaire Banks’ for naming the team in a recent competition to identify the players in the 'Back to Front' photo. See attached picture of the team from the front. This was taken before the county semi-final of 2000. The missing Number 15 was Dinny Ryan.

The history book is now on sale in the Sweeney’s Circle K Service Station, Pónaire Coffee, Gully’s Daybreak & Hackett’s Pharmacy. It is also available from members of the committee. The 672 x A4 page publication retails at €40.
