Six teams participated against six Nenagh teams.  Great morning had by all. Thanks to Nenagh Eire Óg for their hospitality.


Under 12: Tulach Sheasta Arrows played Toomevara last Friday night in Lacken Park. This turned out to be an absorbing contest with both teams giving it their all. Toomevara came out on top on a score line of 4.5 to 1.0. Well done to the Arrows on a mature and dedicated performance.  

Tulach Sheasta Colts played Roscrea last Thursday in Roscrea, it was a very good tough physical match but in the end Roscrea came up tops. Thanks for all the parents and children for going to Roscrea. We now play Ballina next Monday evening at 7 o'clock in Lacken Park, a must win match.

On Friday night Tulach Sheasta Dynamos played Toomevara at Lacken Park. 

The game was played at a high tempo throughout and despite some excellent play and heroic defending Newport came out on the losing end. Well done to all the players for a great effort on the night.
