Congratulations to Newport Boys N.S. on their very successful Mini Football Tournament held in Lacken Pk. last Thurs.  Schools from Birdhill, Ballinahinch and Newport participated. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, Rearcross were forced to drop out earlier in the week.  Birdhill, under manager Joe Floyd, put in spirited displays in both their matches but were unable to match the scoring power of the other two sides.  Before the final, Mr. McCormack organized  a display of football by the younger classes in Newport B.N.S. and judging from this, the school should have no trouble fielding a decent team in years to come. The final proved to be a very keenly contested affair, with Ballinahinch looking very comfortable at half time 4 pts up. However the Newport side came out for the second half with determination and both sides thrilled the spectators with some of the best football seen in Lacken Pk in recent times.  With seconds to go, Newport 2pts ahead looked set for victory but Ballinahinch made one final surge to score the winning goal snatching victory by 1pt before the final whistle sounded.  It was a great tournament and well done to all who participated. Thanks to Mr. Skehane for organizing the event and a big thank you to the club helpers who turned out on the day to ensure the event ran smoothly.
The  St. Mary's Under 16½ side bowed out of the Munster Schools when they were heavily defeated by Pallaskenry in Clarina last Thurs.  The Under 18½'s are due to play Tralee after mid-term.
