Presentation Night
A great night was had in Ryan’s, Cork Road for the Presentation Night where we celebrated title wins in the North Championships 2015. Medals were presented to our under 21 A footballers, our Junior B hurlers, our Junior A footballers and our Intermediate hurlers. Club chairman, Padraig Tobin also made a presentation to Conor O' Mahony to mark his huge contribution to County hurling as he retires from the County scene. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the night.

The death has occurred of Din Joe Crowley R.I.P. former Kerry footballer at his home in Birdhill. Din Joe made a valuable contribution to the coaching of Newport juvenile football teams in the 1980s and 90s and his 4 sons played prominent roles on various under age teams. C.L.G. Tulach Sheasta would like to extend the sympathy of all to his family, neighbours and friends. Ar dheis láimh Dé go raibh a anam.
