St Joseph’s College
St Joseph’s College Senior Camogie Team played St Anne’s Killaloe in the Munster senior championship on Monday October 17th in what turned out to be a replay of last years Munster final, both with location and final score. The game was always going to be a big ask of the girls especially Aedin Hogan and Tara Mockler who had less than twenty four hours earlier played a huge role with Borrisoleigh in the replay of the county senior camogie club final. Gemma McCarthy, Laoise Mcgrath,Aisling Carey and Eimear Murphy also had busy weekends with their club but soldiered on and fought gallantly.
Killaloe were the better team and scored effortlessly, leaving the Borrisoleigh girls struggling to gain possession. Team: Sarah Dunne, Hazel Reynolds, Kristin Danko, Amy O Brien, Megan Dunne, Tara Mockler,Aisling Dwyer, Gemma McCarthy, Eimear Murphy, Aedin Hogan, Aoife Ryan, Norma Lavery, Ciara Maher, Laoise Mcgrath Elaine Gleeson, Aisling Carey, Maeve Stapleton, Shaneen Stapleton,
The first and second years had a great day in sunny Templetuohy where they competed in the Tipperary schools blitz day. They were beaten by Borrisokane and Roscrea and beat Nenagh College. The future looks bright with so many first years improving so much as they gain experience.
Well done to all involved with Borrisoleigh senior camogie team on reaching the county final and taking it to a replay. It was great to see so many present and past pupils playing the game at the highest level for their club. Well done also to the Silvermines U/18 team on winning the county final.
St. Joseph’s Senior hurlers triumph over Cobh 1-17 to 1-04
On Wednesday the 26th of October, St. Joseph’s made it two wins from two with a fine 13 victory over a physical Cobh outfit. Played in ideal conditions in Goatenbridge, St. Joseph’s were without Templederry trio Richie O’Donoghue, Conor Looby and Tim McCutcheon due to injuries, but other players stepped up to the plate, making the victory all the sweeter.
St. Joseph’s opened the scoring with a pointed Bob Delaney free after 2mins and this set the tone for the first half. Cobh found it hard to get their hands on the ball around the middle third of the pitch due to the work rate of the St. Joseph’s players. Any balls that did pass beyond the 45 were confidently dealt with by the full back line and goalie.
Coming up to half time, St. Joseph’s were still in control but Cobh were starting to find their feet and after four wides in a row they got off the mark with two quick points to leave the HT score 7-2 in favour of the Tipp side.
Hitting the ground fast was vital for Cobh but again, due to the good work from the St. Joseph’s players they were snuffed out and the game started pattering out. St. Joseph’s forwards were moving well and taking their scores when the opportunity arose’ while the midfield and backs were never far away from their men. Final score was 1-17 to 1-4.
Team: P Stapleton, O Bergin, S O’Farell, A Ryan, P Connoll, A Reid, C Ryan, J Ryan, M Ryan, K Maher, N Cooney, J Corcoran, A Danko, R Delaney, M Lavery, Subs: N Slattery, H Young, C Ryan
On Monday the 24th of October our junior hurlers make it two wins from two in Munster and qualified for the quarter final.
Playing against the elements in the first half St. Josephs were slow to start and Crescent hit the ground running with some very well taken scores. It could have been a lot worse during this stage opening ten minutes but Pauraic Stapleton pulled off two good saves.
Some switches on the St. Joseph’s team steadied the ship and our full forward line took their chances when they arose. After being well outplayed in the first half St.Joseph’s were very lucky to be only a point down at half time. 3-5 to 1-12.
With an increase in work rate evident very early on St. Joseph’s grabbed the initiative on the game. Kev Maher was dominating at mid field, James Kelly, Dan Ryan and Harry Young were storming into the game and the ball being played into the full forward line was much better allowing Alvis Danko, Mikey Delaney and Adam Ryan to boss the show up there.
St. Joseph’s held out in the second half to finish with a margin of four points.
1-15 to 3-13.
Team: Pauraic Stapleton, Jack Fitzgerald, James Kelly, Harry Young, Seamus Ryan,Kevin Maher, Cathal Hogan, Adam Ryan, Dan Ryan, Michael Ryan, Cathal Ryan, Barry McCarthy, Mikey Delaney, Alvis Danko, Sean Dunne. Subs, Luke Cooney and Harry Stapleton

Adventure of a Lifetime
by Clóda Scanlon
On the 6th of October 2016, I began what would be the toughest, most challenging but amazing adventure of my life – climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
Altogether it was a 7-day hike. Each day had its own quirky landscape and its own challenges!
As we soared higher and higher each day, and our bodies acclimatising with each height we reached, our guides were very confident that all of the team were going to reach the summit successfully!
