Borris-Ileigh Camogie Notes
Borris-leigh Camogie held their Senior presentation night in Stapleton’s bar recently. Despite having a tough year on the playing field, it was a night which was held to honour the memory of our Senior camogie Manager Martin Hayes who passed away in August of this year. There were 2 awards presented on the night, the Martin Hayes player of the year award which went to Niamh McGrath and the Martin Hayes most improved/dedication award which went to Maggie Bourke.
The club would like to expressed gratitude to Martin’s wife Helen for presenting the awards on the night.Thanks also to Breed Cowan for her hospitality on the night and we wish her a speedy recovery following a recent operation.

Our u-15 Footballers gave a great account of themselves today but lost out to a very good Presentation Ballingarry team in the county final. Unlucky boys but well done on making the final!

Fountain in Borrisoleigh
ln the middle of the street in Borrisoleigh
The Fountain flowed freely down from the hill
When the people did come
With there buckets in their hands
To the Fountain that flowed down from the hill
Flow freely along from mountain and glen
Through the streets that I love in Borrisoleigh
With the hills all around and the springs beneath
It flowed like a dream down from the hill
Come winter hail and snow, it never seemed to cease
It always flowed freely down from the hill
Where the hurlers of yore drank spring water galore
Going down to train for the next hurling game
The Fountain is now gone & the people come no more
To talk about the weather & the next hurling game
Those memories live on; of the people we met
At the fountain that flowed
Down from the hill
The above poem was written by Derry Bourke, Nenagh Road, Borrisoleigh
Pic of the Past ………..down memory lane
