Minor Hurling
Our Minor hurlers, Newport Gaels, have qualified for the North Semi Final after a hard earned 4.18 to 2.15 victory over Borrisoleigh in their final group game last Wednesday night. With the result in the melting pot up to the last few minutes, two late goals sealed victory for us. We now await the results from the two quarter finals to see who our opponents will be. Best of luck to our panel member Davy Gleeson and the rest of the Tipp Minor Hurling squad in their All Ireland Semi Final against Dublin next Sunday.
