  • The Juvenile Club hosted the annual James O'Rourke Tournament last Saturday in Lacken Park. We had four under 11 Football teams competing this year from Newport, Burgess, Cappamore & Kilfenora.  After six very competitive and exciting group games the finalists for both the A & B Finals were decided with Newport & Cappamore contesting the A Final & Kilfenora and Burgess in the B Final. In what were two very exciting and dramatic finals Kilfenora prevailed to win by 2 points in the 'B' final and Cappamore were victorious in the 'A' final. The latter won by 3 points, with the Newport lads camped in the opposition's half but just couldn't break down their defence who had a keeper in tremendous form. The club would like to thank Diarmuid Collins for all the work he put into organizing the tournament this year and all the teams who participated in the and helped to make the Tournament such a wonderful success. We would also like to thank our referees Peter Coleman & Pat Gibson and all the parents who  helped with catering on the day.   
  • Our under 7 & 8 hurlers are away to Doon this Saturday in a Hurling blitz. We need to be there for 11:45 AM

County Semi-Final
Our intermediates have qualified for the co. semi final after a hard fought victory over Golden. A goal from Martin Carey steadied the ship in the first half but Newport needed the accuracy of Eoin Shinnors to see them over the line. See paper for full report.

Junior Football
Our footballers lost out to Gortnahoe in the Co. Quarter final on Sunday in a disappointing result. This was a competition that Newport could have gone further in, but without the services of the Intermediate Hurlers, unfortunately, it was not meant to be.

 Next Draw: 5/10/15   Jackpot €6,300
