Can You Help?


The ethos of the GAA is based on volunteerism and community involvement. CLG Tulach Sheasta has been blessed with the contribution of its volunteers over many decades. On and off the field, involvement in the GAA has made a significant contribution to local social and community life.
Increasing population and expanding recreational needs require a broad level of involvement in the parish of Newport to provide facilities and activities for young and old in our community. CLG Tulach Sheasta is ambitious for current and future generations of Newport people. We seek to provide top class facilities. We want to see our players achieving their full potential and playing at the highest level of hurling and football. We aim to provide positive experiences through involvement in the club. We wish to involve a wider spectrum of parishioners on our journey.  Can you help? Can you contribute to the development and well-being of your fellow community members?

If you are not already involved in CLG Tulach Sheasta, we are asking for a weekly one-hour commitment to help grow the club as a key focal point of the community. We respectfully ask that you consider a role that you might play in the club.  Tasks are many and varied, but they can be tailored to suit constraints on time and availability. Mentoring and support will be provided where necessary.

Please tick one or more boxes of your choice at the following link:

and submit to the club secretary before Monday 8th November.   Be sure to provide your contact details and a club rep will soon be in touch with you.  Alternatively you could make the initial contact with any of the club officers.

 Faoi 19’s: Congratulations to our Under 19 footballers who won the North Football Final last Wednesday evening in an extraordinary match. Both Newport & Borrisokane players gave absolutely everything they had and the never say die attitude of both teams had them level at full time on a scoreline of 4-09 each and Newport 4-12 to Borrisokane’s  5-09 after extra time. Newport eventually won out on penalties by 4 to 3 after a brilliant save by Mark Forde for the celebrations to begin. It was a great achievement for a great bunch of players, with the 18-19 year olds on the team winning their very first North Title with the club. We would also like to thank James Nolan and his management team for all the work they have put in with the team.
