Congratulations: to Sean O’Brien & the Tipperary team on their fantastic win in The All Ireland Senior Hurling Final on Sunday. It completes a unique set of All Ireland medals for Sean who has now won  All-Ireland Under 16, Minor, Under 21, Intermediate & Senior medals.

Community Games: Well done to our Under 11’s Community Games Hurling team who won a silver medal in the All Ireland Finals last Saturday in UL.  Having beaten Oranmore from Galway in a very competitive semi-final, they lost out to a very good Dicksboro team from Kilkenny (runners up in 2018) in the final.  All of the players can be very proud of their performances throughout the competition and each player gave 100% in all of their matches. They were the first Newport team to bring both County & Munster titles in this competition to the parish and will no doubt have more success in the future. A big thank you to the management team of Hugh McLoughlin, Dave Roche, Dave Noone  & Keith McIntyre for all the work they have put in with the players, to the people of the parish who came on Saturday in such huge numbers to support the team & to Siobhan Kennedy, secretary Newport Community Games & all of the Community Games committee for all the work they do to promote the community games in the parish. 

Cùl Camp:  The Juvenile Club held their Cùl Camp last week with over 230 children participating and really enjoying the week's activities. The Club would like to thank Andy Ryan Tipperary GDA, head coach JP Grace and all the other coaches who helped to make it such an enjoyabe week for the children.

Also, a big thank you to all the volunteers who assisted each day and without whom the Camp could not take place.  A special thanks to Colette Collins and Cathriona O'Brien who worked tirelessly during the build-up and throughout the week to ensure the Camp was a great success. 
Looking forward to seeing all our players back at training next week and at Cúl Camp 2020.

Under 16’s: Hard luck to our Under 16 hurlers who lost out to Lorrha in their North Quarter Final last Friday evening. We would like to thank the players & the management team for all the work they have put in this year.

Tipp Draw: Congratulation to Paddy & Melissa Ryan and Seamus Ryan (D) who won € 500 & € 200 respectively in the August Draw.
