Well done to the Newport & Ballinahinch U21B hurlers who had a dramatic extra time victory over Silvermines in the North quarter final on Sunday last.  Congrats to the team and management who must be commended for turning out so late in the year.
Newport & Ballinahinch U21 teams began the year with some uncertainity due to the small numbers of players available to each club and after some discussion they made the sensible decision to pool resources and field a combined outfit. Ballinahinch Gaels  began their activity in the U21B football and ultimately went on to win the County final. Focus has since switched to the North U21 B hurling championship where they contested the quarter final on Sunday last v's Silvermines in Templederry. This proved to be a thriller with The Gaels losing a man early in the game through a straight red and the teams being level at the end of normal time. They were then able to restore to 15 aside for the extra time. After the extra 20 mins, Ballinahinch/Newport Gaels ran out winners on a scoreline of 3-19 to Silvermines 3-14. The team lined out as follows with the scorers:
 Darragh McGrath
Rob Houlihan 0-1
Paddy Kelly
Joe Conneely
John Ryan Bawn
Odhran Floyd 0-2
Edward Ryan
Conor Floyd 0-1
Kevin mulachy 0-3
Martin Carey 0-1
Kevin Fitzpatrick
Pa Ryan 0-2
Brendan Ryan 2-4
David Ryan 0-1
Aidan Moloney 1-4
Subs used :Matthew Connolly and James Healy.
Ballinahinch/Newport will next meet Borrisokane in the North semi-final.

 Senior AGM
Newport GAA AGM will take place on Friday next at 8pm in the club rooms. A large attendance is expected as we bring 2013 to a close and plan out next year.

 Juvenile Presentation Night
The Juvenile committee will hold their annual presentation night on Sunday next in the Newport Community Centre where all our players achievements for the past will be recognised.

This year the club will produce a yearbook which is hoped to capture as much club activity as possible in both pictures and words. Titled "For the record - Tulach Sheasta 2013"  will be on sale next weekend from any committee member, costing €5.
