County Champions:
What a dream come true for our intermediate hurlers, the management and all the people of Newport last Sunday in Dundrum, as after years of disappointment we finally won our first county intermediate title since 2002. There were great scenes both in Dundrum and the square in Newport for the homecoming. It was something memorable as our champions got their due reward after beating Thurles Sarsfields 1-17 to 0-15. Thanks to everyone who has helped in providing this success: the players led by Sean O Brien, the management led by Dinny Ryan Cooper, the sponsors, the club officials but also to the supporters and people of Newport who turned out in numbers to support the lads all throughout the day yesterday. They now go on to represent Tipperary as County Champions against either the Cork or Waterford champions. We have regained our status as a senior club and everyone in the club can be proud of this achievement , Tulach Sheasta Abú!
