Under 6, 7, 8
Last Saturday morning was a very busy one for the younger members of our club. Many of our under 6’s donned the Newport colours for the first time in a hurling & football blitz in Lacken Park V Ballina  which they all thoroughly enjoyed and are already looking forward to their next match. Our under 7’s & 8’s had two teams in Dr Morris Park in Thurles for the County Hurling blitz with both teams playing 3 matches.  

Under 11
Doon GAA invited two Newport teams to their under 11 tourament in memory of the late Jack McDonnell. It was an outstanding success and well done both to both of our teams who played excellent hurling and really enjoyed the day and to Doon GAA for organizing a great tournament and for their kind hospitality.

Our Newport Gaels team took the saying goals win matches to a new level last Friday evening they recorded an 8-02 to 5-06 victory over Borrisoleigh. Both of our under 12  hurling teams have qualified for the North Quarter finals this Friday evening. The Fixtures were not available at time of going to press as there is still outstanding play off matches.

40's tournament.

On Sunday last a group of battlehardened over 40's team travelled to Borrisoleigh to take part in the festival tournament. The team were beaten by one point after extra time by Sean Treacys. This was a very enjoyable experience for all concerned and I am sure the crowd enjoyed it too. We would like to thank Joe Loughnane from Borrisoleigh for the invitation and to team manager Tom Moylan who gathered the group together.
