Our under 13 Hurlers took part in the Kilruane MacDonaghs tournament last Saturday. They recorded a good win over Nenagh Eire Og in the semi final.They put in a good performance in the final v Kilruane but unfortunately could not repeat the win they recorded in The North Tipp Under 13 Plate a few weeks ago. We would like to thank Kilruane for organising & inviting us to their tournament.

Our hurlers have qualified for the County 'B' Final after a very tight battle with Gortnahoe on Saturday last. The boys had a lively start to the first half and goals from Aidan Moloney and Kieran Doheny gave us a comfortable lead. Gortnahoe fought back in the second half, scoring 2 goals, but we hung on in the end to win by a point, 4-11 to 3-13. The final should be on this weekend so please see paper for details. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
The Club AGM is approaching so if you have any motions for discussion please submit to the club secretary at 7 Stonehall, Newport, before 6th November. Nomination Paper can be downloaded from this site under the 'Forms' tab.

The club would like to thank all the players for their efforts over the year along with the team mentors. Attention will now turn to the outstanding Minor Football fixture and with some of these players involved with the Junior and U21 teams they have the chances to bring more accolades to the club.
Newport GAA launched its coaching plan last Friday evening in the clubhouse. The coaching plan is based on best international practice, in the development of players from under 6
and for their lifetime and for the coaches who train the players. The plan was the brainchild of the late Professor Pat Duffy, who served as coaching officer prior to his untimely death in August 2014. The task of completing the plan was overseen by our present Coaching Officer Shane Gavin and the Coaching committee. Chairperson Padraig Tobin paid tribute to Pat and to the Shane for creating such a comprehensive document that will be of significant value to all our players. He thanked Deirdre and the Duffy family for being present as the club acknowledged the legacy Pat has left to the club.

The road ended for our hurlers at the hands of Clonakenny on Saturday. A game which was always slipping away from us as Clonakenny hit the ground running.
Thanks to all who supported our Dog Night on Saturday. A great night's entertainment was had by all in attendance.
Under 7 & 8:

Our intermediates have qualified for the co. semi final after a hard fought victory over Golden. A goal from Martin Carey steadied the ship in the first half but Newport needed the accuracy of Eoin Shinnors to see them over the line. See paper for full report.
Our footballers lost out to Gortnahoe in the Co. Quarter final on Sunday in a disappointing result. This was a competition that Newport could have gone further in, but without the services of the Intermediate Hurlers, unfortunately, it was not meant to be.
