Borris-Ileigh Camogie Club Notes 

Third Win for Intermediates:
Our Intermediates travelled to Newport last Saturday and came away with our third win of the Championship following a cracking game between two very evenly matched teams. 
Goals from Dani Ryan and Emma Maher helped us secure a 2-10 to 1-11 victory. 
Next up for the Intermediates is a home fixture against Shannon Rovers on Saturday evening next at 6pm. 
Under 6s & Under 8s:
Our Under 6 and 8 teams had some great fun matches against Boherlahan Dualla on Saturday morning in which all our girls performed brilliantly.

Tipperary Co-op Club Leagues:
Our Tipperary Co-op sponsored club leagues will be held in the Park on Friday evening next starting at 6pm. 
It promises to be a great night of camogie that will include all our players in the Under 6, 8, 10 and 12 age-groups. 
A huge thanks to Tipperary Co-op for sponsoring our event.
