Scór na nÓg: Thanks to all those who represented the club in the North Final in the Silvermines recently. Well done to our Ballad Group and Instrumental Music Group who won the County Final last Friday night in Holycross. They now go on to represent Tipperary in the Munster semifinal in Cappamore on 6th January. Lorna Floyd, Brian McAuliffe, Ciara Floyd and Kealan Floyd are in both groups and they are joined by Conor Floyd in the Ballad Group and by Ellen Gorman in the Instrumental Music. They also have the opportunity to audition for a new TG4 series on Scor na nOg which will be screened in 2013. We wish them all the best in their endeavours in 2013.
Hard luck to the Quiz team who were unsuccessful in the County Final.
Newport were declared best 'Scór na nÓg' club in North Tipperary - picture shows Anthony Floyd receiving the trophy from Phil Keyes.

Scór na bPáistí: Our Area Final will take place in Templederry on Friday, 25th January. The other clubs competing there will be Portroe, Eire Og Nenagh, Roscrea, Shannon Rovers and the host club Templederry. Our Parish Final will take place in Birdhill Hall in mid January. This year we are incorporating a "Battle of the Schools" in the Quiz competition. Perpetual Cup on offer and other valuable prizes. We would encourage as many people as possible to take part in the various acts involved in Scor. These are Solo Singing, Ballad Group, Instrumental Music, Figure Dancing, Set Dancing, Recitation, Novelty Act and the Quiz. So get your act(s) in order and take part in your parish final.
