GAA County Draw
25th Anniversary draw starts in May. Promotors will be calling over coming month. The Club would like to thank all those who have supported the draw over the 25 years and would encourage new people to join for this special draw with even more prizes. The monies raised for the Club and County through this draw are vital funds for the running of both units.  Thanks to all the Club promotors for their work and we look for your continued help in the year ahead.  Promotors please note that a meeting will be called in coming weeks to co-ordinate the new Draw.
Minor Football 
Our minor footballers (Ballinahinch Gaels) have made a great start winning their first two matches against Borrisoleigh and Silvermines. Against Borrisleigh we were well served by the penetrating runs of Aidan Moloney and the scores superbly finished by Dave Ryan. Against the Mines we defended very well through Paddy Kelly and Conor Floyd down the middle.  Up front, Kieran Bonny was causing lots of damage.
Training on Monday night at 8pm in Newport with next game against Kilruane. Well done to all involved.
Garda Cup
Congratulations to Pa Ryan (captain), Conor Floyd and Rob Houlihan who were members of the North Tipp team which won the Inter-divisional Under 16 hurling competition on Saturdy last. The team is now preparing for the Munster Inter-divisional tournament.  Unfortunately, Pa has broken a finger and will miss some forthcoming games.
