Under 7 and 8: Our under 7's and 8's had four teams in Portroe for their final football blitz of the season last Saturday morning. They played teams from Portroe, Nenagh & Kiladangan. Well done to all the players who played brilliantly throughout all their games and demonstrated all the skills they had learned since the start of the season.
The under 8's still have two hurling blitzes to play before the end of the season. Next up this Friday evening we travel to Newtownshandrum to play under lights and finish with a home blitz with Cuala on Sunday Oct 8th

 

Under 10s played in a blitz in Croom last Saturday. Despite a very strong wind, the boys improved with each game, winning their last match. 

Well done, to all the players for giving it their all. A big thanks to Croom for holding the event and for the parents who came out to support us on the day.

 

Under 11: The Gold team had a tough assignment last Friday evening against a skilful Toomevara team in the U11 hurling league. 

Tulach Sheasta started well but ended up 2-1 to 1-0 down at half time.  
A massive effort in the second half saw our boys take the lead with a goal leaving the score 3-2 To 2-3 with 3 mins to go.  The boys defended with their lives and despite huge pressure from Toomevara, we held on for a great victory. Well done to all the players and the supporters who as always gave great encouragement to the team.


Sympathy: CLG Tulach Sheasta extends sympathy to the family and friends of Mick Caplis, Cooleen, Birdhill who died at the weekend.

Mick's death severs the last surviving link with the Mulcaire Rovers championship-winning team of 1947. He donned the Newport colours in the '50s and was a member of the team which won the county junior hurling title in 1957. He continued to play into the 1960s and was renowned as a strong and wiry defender. He maintained an avid interest in the game of hurling and even up to recent months would engage anyone he met in discussing the fortunes and prospects of Newport and Tipperary teams.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
