Congratulations: to Sean O’Brien & the Tipperary Hurlers on their fantastic win v Cork on Sunday and wishing you the best of luck in your match v Waterford this weekend. Well done also to Niall Duffy, Daniel Egan & Jack Ryan who were part of the Tipperary Under 16 Football team that defeated Limerick on Saturday & to James Moloney who played with the Tipperary Primary Schools team on Saturday evening. Commiserations to Jack Delahunty & the Tipp Footballers who lost out to Limerick in the Munster Senior Football Quarter Final to Limerick on Saturday evening.

Match Day outing :  As part of our Club trip to the Cork v Tipp match on Sunday, 95 of our children from under 10 to under 14 age groups played Whitechurch in a series of friendly games and they put in great displays of hurling in fabulous conditions. Thanks a million to Whitechurch for their hospitality and we look forward to returning the favour later in the summer.

Congratulations: to under 11’s Community Games hurling team who won the North Final V Kilruane MacDonaghs in Cloughjordan last Friday evening. In a well contested game in which there was excellent passages of play from both teams, the Newport boys took more of their scoring chances to win on a score line of 5-03 to 1-02. They now play Ballingarry in the County Final this Saturday in Holycross @ 3:00 PM

Seniors:  The seniors had no match this week. Their next match in the county hurling league is a home game v Ballina on May 26th.

Juniors: The Junior Hurlers put in a great performance in their League match last Friday evening v Kilruane MacDonaghs scoring 2-22 to Kilruane’s 1-12.

Minors: The minor hurlers were beaten by a strong Moneygall / Clonakenny team in their league game last Wednesday evening in Lacken Park. They play Ballinahinch / Templederry this Tuesday evening. Please check our Facebook page for details.

Under 16’s The under 16 footballers played the North Football Final on Monday evening v Moneygall / Clonakenny. They were unfortunate to lose by just one point.

Under 14 Football: Our Under 14 Group A team's interest in the North Football championship ended last Thursday evening. Having beaten Nenagh in the group stages earlier in the championship they were unable to repeat the performance in their Semi-Final losing out on a score line of 3-11 to 2-05.

Under 12’s: The Under 12 Group C team put in a great performance in their recent North Final game v Borrisokane but unfortunately lost out on a score line of 2-04 to 0-04.
