Under 6’s: We played a blitz in Ballina last Saturday morning with teams from Nenagh Éire Óg, Ballina and Smith O’Brien’s. Our 26 players had an early start with a 10am throw in. They all accounted for themselves very well and are a credit to the club and parents.   Our sincere thanks to Ballina for the refreshments in the club afterwards.


Under 7’s: The squad formed a guard of honour before the senior’s County Hurling League Final v Silvermines in Lacken Park last Saturday evening and at half time they played a display game of hurling amongst themselves in front of all the supporters.

Thank you to all the lads who participated in the event and enjoyed the experience and thank you to all the parents for your continued support.


Under 8’s: We had two teams in a Blitz last Saturday morning in Ahane. Thank you to the hosts for invitation and to the parents who brought the players.


Under 10s: Congratulations to our U-10 hurlers who had a great day in the annual Wolfe Tones Shannon U10 Hurling Tournament. They showed great heart and skill in coming out on top in three games versus Smith O’ Brien’s, Wolfe Tones and a very good Newmarket team in the final. Our under 9s also entered the tournament and performed excellently against teams a year older than themselves. Well done to all who took part and thanks to Wolfe Tones for the invitation.

Under 11’s: Last Friday both our U-11 teams were out in the hurling league.  The purple team travelled to Puckane where they played a very strong Kiladangan team. Newport settled well and took an early lead but Kiladangan fought back and were one point up at half time.  In a thrilling second half both teams had the lead at different times but as the game entered injury time Newport who were one point down conjured up a fantastic goal to win by 2 points. Well done to both teams who served up a really great competitive game.  
Our Gold team took on Nenagh in Lacken Park in a game that didn't go our way. A strong Nenagh team got the better of us in what was a first defeat in the hurling league for the Gold team. We were extremely competitive in the game and are still very much in the shake up as the league nears its conclusion.  Thanks to all the parents who supported both teams.

Under 11’s: The U-11 North Tipperary hurling league started on Friday evening last with Newport entering two teams.  Both played away with games versus Burgess and Silvermines.  The Burgess game was a step too far for Newport who had many of their players absent due to their involvement in the national community games finals. After a disappointing first half Newport put in a big effort in the second half but still came up short.  A fine performance v Silvermines gave Newport victory in this game with some excellent teamwork and individual displays.  Well done to all players.

Under 14’s: Last Wednesday night we played Borrisoleigh in the North Semi Final in a perfect Lacken Park.

Newport responded with a goal and a point from Stephen Coffey and Daniel Egan scored a point to level the game.
Paddy McCormack and Eddie Ryan pointed for Borris before Stephen Coffey and Diarmuid O Riordan replied for Newport to level the game at 1.05 each.

Borris started the second half better, and a goal by Eddie Ryan and a superb individual point off the Hurley pushed Borris 4 ahead, but Newport would not give in easily and Daniel Egan replied with a point and Diarmuid O Riordan scored a great goal to reduce it to a point. Eddie Ryan pointed two frees to push out the lead to 3 and they held on to win on a score line of 2.10 to 2.07.Hard luck to the boys but they should be very proud of their performance on the night .Oisin Kennedy, Cian Kennedy, John Ryan, Callum Merrigan, Shane Murray, Niall Duffy, Thomas Byrne, Jack Ryan, Darren Coffey, Stephen McCormack, Daniel Egan (2)Colm O Malley, Adam Moloney, Stephen Coffey (1.4 3f),Diarmuid O Riordan (1.1) Conor McHugo, Kevin O Brien, Luke Collins, Aodhain Sweeney, Sean Nolan, Dylan Keppel, Aaron Pearson, Diarmuid Cantillon, Cian Merrigan.
