Under 14: Newport will play Burgess in the first round of the U14 Hurling Championship on Wednesday May 25th in Lacken Park. Also, the James O'Rourke Tournament will be played on Sunday May 29th in Lacken Park. There will be eight teams taking part, 2 teams from Newport, Moycullen (Galway), Kilfenora (Clare), Burgess, Ahane, Cappamore, and Cappawhite. Throw in is at 2pm.

Tipp Match: The Juvenile Club ran a bus to the Tipperary V Cork game on Sunday last. The kids enjoyed the trip immensely and it is fair to say that the Tipp-Cork rivalry has been carried through to the younger generation. Well done to Pa Ryan who was part of the Tipperary Intermediate Hurling Panel who had an impressive 12 point win over Cork.

Under 8: Newport had two teams participating in the U8 County Hurling Blitz in Dr. Morris Park, Thurles on Saturday last. They played teams from Killenaule, Upperchurch, Borrisoleigh and Drom and Inch. It was a very enjoyable and well organized event.
