Under 21
Our hurlers had a great win on Sunday against Ballina. This was a game that went all the way to the wire as Newport had a comfortable lead, but following a great comeback, Ballina brought the game to extra time. Trailing by a point after the first period a great Kealan Floyd goal in the final period was enough for Newport to hold out.

Conor O’Mahony
Now that the dust has settled and we all get used to the idea that we will no longer be cheering our clubman Conor in the heat of battle for Tipperary, we wish both himself and his family the best in the years ahead. Tributes about his on field heroics are well documented but we would like to thank Conor for all the help he has given over the years.  Never did he refuse a request to help at events i.e medal presentations or just as a presence at schools or a coaching session. He was always very generous with his time. His first All Star jersey hangs in pride of place at our club rooms. Well done Conor and thanks for all the great days.

The club AGM takes place this Friday at 8.00pm in the club rooms so if you would like to get involved or have a say in the running of the club,please attend.
The AGM of the Juvenile Club will take place in the Clubhouse on Tuesday, 1st December at 8.00pm.

Scór na nÓg
Well done to our Ballad Group and Instrumental Music Group who were victorious in the North Final of Scor na nOg held recently in Birdhill Hall. The members of the Instrumental Music Group were Niamh Bourke, Orla O’Brien, Lisa McKeogh, Aisling Bourke and Allison McKeogh. The members of the Ballad Group were Elizabeth Floyd, Ciara Sweeney, Grace Floyd, Kate Hewitt and Saoirse Higgins. They all performed very well but unfortunately success did not come their way at the County Final stage in Cashel last Friday night. Well done to our Quiz team who acquitted themselves very well in the County Final. Team members were Brendan Coffey, Emmett Floyd, Colin Coleman and Stephen Coffey.
