Minor: Hard luck to Newport Gaels minor footballers, they lost out to Drom/Inch 2-09 to 0-17 in the County ‘A’ semi-final last weekend. Following their North final win at the beginning of May, they put a big effort in throughout the year and they were unfortunate not to reach the county final. Thanks to all the players and all those involved with preparing this team throughout the year.
