Borris-Ileigh Camogie Club Notes 

County Duty:
It was a tough week in terms of results for Premier County teams. The senior team bowed out of the Munster Championship following a four point defeat to Clare while the Under 16s were defeated by Cork in the Munster Final in Kilmallock. 
The quintet of Borris players representing Tipperary were Julieanne Bourke, Nicole Walsh, Ava Bevans, Aoife Fitzgerald and Emma Maher.  
Under 12s:
Our Under 12s dip their toes into Championship action this week with our Maroon team out against our neighbours Drom-Inch last night (Tuesday) in Borrisoleigh while our White team have an away fixture against Toomevara on Friday night at 7:15pm. 
Under 14s:
Our Under 14s are back in Championship action tomorrow (Thursday) night when they travel to Kilcolman to play Burgess with a 7pm throw in.
