Hard luck to our minors who were beaten by Kildangan in the North Minor Hurling Final last Saturday. See match report

The club would like to thank all the players for their efforts over the year along with the team mentors. Attention will now turn to the outstanding Minor Football fixture and with some of these players involved with the Junior and U21 teams they have the chances to bring more accolades to the club.


Coaching Plan:

Newport GAA launched its coaching plan last Friday evening in the clubhouse. The coaching plan is based on best international practice, in the development of players from under 6

and for their lifetime and for the coaches who train the players. The plan was the brainchild of the late Professor Pat Duffy, who served as coaching officer prior to his untimely death in August 2014. The task of completing the plan was overseen by our present Coaching Officer Shane Gavin and the Coaching committee. Chairperson Padraig Tobin paid tribute to Pat and to the Shane for creating such a comprehensive document that will be of significant value to all our players. He thanked Deirdre and the Duffy family for being present as the club acknowledged the legacy Pat has left to the club.
