In a very competitive and tense County Final Borrisoleigh played out a very exciting draw on a scoreline of 1-9 to 0-12 against Mullinahone at Littleton last Saturday before a large crowd. In very poor weather conditions both teams served up some great hurling. While both teams had chances to win on the day, at the final outcome a draw was a fair result with neither team deserving to lose. Well done to all involved and also thanks to large number of Borris-Ileigh supporters who travelled on the day. At the time of writing no date has yet been fixed for the replay.

Well done again to all involved and thanks also to the tremendous support for the team. Replay is on next Monday 27th October at 3.30pm in
