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.  
U10 panel was Conor Nolan, Eamon Walsh, Conor Sweeney, Zack Mooney, Cillian Collins, Liam Coffey, Eamon Coffey, Brian McCabe, Harry Lee, Dara McGrath, Darragh Mackey, Tom Ryan, Sam Caplis, Ronan Fitzpatrick, Ryan Shinnors.

 

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 13’s: We played last Wednesday evening in the U-13s plate against Portroe, winning on a score line of 5-8 to 2-5 to Tulach Sheasta. Well done to all and a big thanks to all the parents for supporting the team.

 

Under 14’s: Our U-14 team defeated Sean Treacy’s to win the plate. 
Well done to all the team for their great efforts on the day.

 

Senior: Our Senior hurlers were defeated by Silvermines, in the County league final last Saturday evening in Lacken Park. Final score Tulach Sheasta 1-13 Silvermines 0-25.

Junior: Well done to our Junior B hurlers and mentors who continue their winning ways by defeating Portroe in the North championship last Sunday in Portroe. Final score Tulach Sheasta 2-09 Portroe 0-13.

Sympathies: The club extends it sympathies to the Collins family of Ballmackeogh and Ahane on the recent death of Michael R.I.P. and to the Morgan family on their recent bereavement. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamacha
