St Mary's Secondary School
What a difference one week can make in your sporting fortunes. First up St Marys boys U18 hurling team met Cork champions Carrignavar in the Munster final and after a tumultuous game they were victorious by the slimmest of margins. This was a wonderfull success for the school which included 11 Newport players. Well done to St Mary's, captained by Ballinahinch player Darragh McGrath, on bringing the Munster Trophy back to Newport. Then , on Sunday St Marys girls took to the field in in the Munster Camogie Final against Desmond College from Newcastlewest. After another epic battle they will feel a little hard done by in a controversial decision at the end which meant they lost by a single point. Nevertheless, St Marys quickly put the defeat behind them and reflected on a wonderfull year for the school's camogie players, many of whom tasted success at club level. Well done to all involved.

Juvenile Forum
Our young players have now completed their submission to to the club's five year plan and have presented the document to Denis Floyd for his observations. Great credit is due to the transition year students Liam Duffy, Mike Quigley, Daniel Delaney, Conor Hickey and chairman Conor Floyd, who have produced a remarkable report which expresses the views of all our young members.

Under 16
Our U16 footballers are working very hard at the moment under manager Anthony Floyd as they prepare for the North Champoinship whic begins next week. Many of our players are also involved in the North Tipp U15 and U16 Divisional Teams that will contest the inter divisional competition next weekend.

White Collar Boxing
All roads lead to Nenagh next Saturday night ( 16th) when 15 of Newports finest boxers will attempt to covet the title "Kings of Keeper" as they box the Ballinahinch boys in our annual fundraiser event on St Patricks weekend. This should be a great night out as the Newport boys have trained fervently for the event. A bus has been organised in the event of enough interest being shown. Contact Pat Brennan for more details.
