The Gathering
Tulach Sheasta contributed to the Parish Gathering Festival recently in no small way as to begin with, we participated in the Gathering Mass and Parade of Clubs which opened the festival. Then on Mon 22nd July, Lacken Páirc was full to capacity as players and non players alike gathered to mark the occasion. The juvenile section kicked off proceedings as the final's of the Parish league were run off with great gusto with our U6's,8's & 10's competing. Meanwhile the U12's & U14's put on their display on the underage pitches. Whilst this was going on, referee Jim Lees looked very puzzled as the Junior Camogie Team took to the field to play the U16 boys in a "development" game. Lining out for the camogie girls were three new "belles", Concepta Floyd, Patrica Ryan & Roberta Houlihan. What's strange is they haven't been seen since! The Camogie girls put it up to the boys even before the throw in, as they performed a highly entertaining "Haka" to which the boys could only look on. A fine game of hurling then followed and a bemused referee could not remember who won, the boy's or the girls, or both ! As the evening fell we were treated to a flurry of entertainment from figure dancer Marie Claire Tuohey, the Nolan family from Rearcross, the Junior & Senior ballad groups and the Birdhill Set dancing group. Denis Floyd presented certificates to past winning teams and former club officers whilst Club chairman, Martin Guilfolye rounded off the evening by thanking the large attendance and inviting everyone for food and refreshments. A great evening was had by all in glorious sunshine!

 
Under 16 Hurling
Our U16 hurlers had a fine win over Borrisileigh last Friday. This hard fought win gets us back on track with 2 wins from 3. We play Ballina this Monday, with hopefully another result in our favour. Simultaenously we must keep an eye on the football as we have the County Final on Sat Aug 10th v Clonmel Commercials.

 Minor Hurling
Our minors are out on Wednesday evening away to Borrisileigh and need a win to stay in contention. Throw in at 7:30pm.

 Intermediates
The intermediates had a god win over Ballinahinch on Saturday last in the final game of the pool stages of the county championship. Newport have now topped the group and have qualified for the Coonty Quarters finals. The next outing will be against Shannon Rovers in the Nth Semi.

 Congrats
Tulach Sheasta would like to send congratulations to Intermediate player Sean O Brien on winning another Munster medal with the Tipp Intermediate Hurling team when Tipp beat Cork in the Munster Final last week. Well done Sean and best of luck in the All Ireland final. Sean acquitted himself very well at corner back. He is pictured with the team below 4th from the right of the front row.
