Borris-Ileigh GAA Club Notes
Our Senior’s continued their rich vain of form with an impressive 14 point victory over South champions Carrick Swans in the County Preliminary Quarter Final in Leahy Park, Cashel last Sunday afternoon. Playing with an enormous gale force wind at their backs in the first half the lads managed to build up an eight point lead at the half time break with the score at 1-12 to 1-04. Two early second half goals from Jack Hogan and Conor Kenny set us on our way to hard fought victory in a very physically testing conditions on a scorline of 3-16 to 2-05. We now move on to play Loughmore Castleiney in the County Senior Hurling Championship in attempt to reach our first Semi Final since 2013.
Our Junior’s run in the North ‘A’ Championship came to an end at the Semi Final stage as they were defeated by Toomevara last Friday evening in Templederry. They were beaten on a scoreline of 3-16 to 1-15 after a very close game. A game we could have easily won but things just didn’t go our way. We as a club would like to thank both the management and the players for the huge effort they have put in this year from start to finish. Overall a good year with something to build on for the years to come.
The club would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all their help during the last week for giving our home in Bishop Quinlan Park a much needed facelift. A special mention must go to Trevor Groome who spent countless hours washing and painting our club house and all our facilities around the field and the huge amount of tidying up that was done. Also we would like to thank Martin Ryan, who on his short visit home, gave up his free
time to help dig out the banks around our playing fields to give them a brand new look. Following on from all this work that has been done we would ask all our patrons to please show due respect when using all the great facilities we have, we hope this will now put a stop to any anti-social behaviour and vandalism that has been a blight to the club. We finally ask, as a show of respect to the countless hours of work that is being put into keeping the park in pristine condition, that anyone that sees anything untoward that they report it to the club or the relevant authorities and that all parents remind kids using the fields to show it the same respect and to use the numerous bins provided. This is everyone’s Park, so let’s treat it like accordingly.
Our Jackpot is now up to a MASSIVE €18,600 for the coming week. This weeks numbers were 1, 6, 9 and 11.
Tickets are available at all local shops and pubs.

Borris-Ileigh Juvenile GAA Club
Saturday 9th September Borris-Ileigh Juvenile club held the Meagher Cup (U8 hurling tournament) for its 14th successive year.
The draw took place which saw Borris-Ileigh play against Upperchurch Drombane GAA and on the other half of the field Loughmore/Castleiney played against Drom/Inch. Despite the weather not being the best, great strength and determination was on show as all the kids played through the rain. Our boys gave an excellent account of themselves as did every other child with excellent skills on display.
The Cup was contested by Borris-Ileigh and Drom/Inch with Borris-Ileigh after a dominant first half finishing out winners of the Meagher Cup at full time. The shield final was contested by Upperchurch/Drombane and Loughmore-Castleiney GAA and Upperchurch proved a little stronger on the day. Each child was presented with a medal for their efforts by Juvenile chairman Jody Boyle.
The club would like to thank Rose Stapleton for presenting the Meagher Cup. Also, our guest teams, their families and mentors for the great games we all enjoyed and our backroom team, committee members, coaches and parents for the organisation on the day and the refreshments they supplied to all there on the day. Each and everyone of the kids were a credit to you and the club are very proud of them all. Thanks to the guys for marking out the field. A great job and well done to both referees involved Gerry Treacy and Liam Shanahan.
Finally, The Borris-Ileigh Juvenile club would like to thank Trevor Groome for the trojan work he has done both indoors & outdoors around the park.
