Borris-Ileigh Juvenile ClubThe Juvenile Club held its annual U10 Mick Prior Tournament on Saturday last. The club hosted 7 Teams with the games commencing @ 2pm. The bad weather held off to make the tournament most enjoyable. The standard of hurling that was displayed by all teams was fantastic with very promising displays from players from all teams. The Club would like to thank the teams for participating in the tournament and to congratulate JK Brackens on winning the tournament and runners up Holycross for giving us a very enjoyable final. Our own U10 team won the B Final Shield with victory over Moycarkey-Borris. Drom-Inch won the C Final Shield with victory over Toomevara and the D Final Shield was won by Loughmore with victory over Upperchurch-Drombane. The Club would like to thank the Referees for officiating the games. Thanks to Joe Barry for leading the teams out onto the playing field and making the occasion all the more special for the players. The Club would like to say a special thank you to the parents and committee for providing refreshments on the day. Thank you so much for your support - it is greatly appreciated.

Borrisoleigh Charity Cycle 2016Well done to all the cyclists who took part in the Cycle on Sunday the 18th of September in aid of the Borrisoleigh Playground Refurbishment. A fabulous crowd of over 80 cyclists completed the 40km and 80kmroutes in less than favourable weather conditions. However, everything went off successfully and all cyclists returned safely to Borrisoleigh to some well deserved refreshments in the Community Centre prepared and served by the Playground committee and other members of the local community. The organisers would like to thank everyone who helped out in any way ensuring another successful outing. Refreshments during and after the cycle were provided by Gleeson Group, Walsh's Quik Pick, Donal Hurley's Gala, Shanahans Centra and Stapletons Bakery. The organisers would also like to thank everyone who prepared and served all the soup and refreshments in the Community Centre. Thanks to all our support vehicle drivers, Philip Delaney, John F. Kennedy, Joe Holland, Derry O’Donnell and Frank Cooney and our First Aid support Christine O’Dwyer and Ava Brooks. Thanks to our motorbike marshals, Tomás Ryan and Bobby Stapleton and to our local Gardaí, Martina Kelly and Thurles Garda Station for their assistance throughout. Finally well done and thanks to all the cyclists who gave their time and effort on the day and also to their very generous sponsors. It was great to see so many cyclists from the surrounding parishes and towns supporting our local cause. Outstanding cards and sponsorship moneywill be gratefully received by Patrice Cooney or Evelyn McGrath.
