Borris-Ileigh GAA Club Notes


Congratulations to our Seniors who qualified from their Roinn 1 County Championship group last Saturday with a fantastic victory over Upperchurch Drombane in Semple Stadium. They were victorious on a score line of 4-17 to 0-15 after a fantastic performance from our lads. This along with Loughmore Castleiney’s five point victory over Kiladangan in Dolla ensured our passage into the next round. We must now wait for each divisional championship to be played off before the next round fixtures will be decided. Well done to all involved.


Our Minor’s recorded a very impressive victory over Ballina in the North Minor ‘B’ championship last week. They came out on top on a score line of 5-21 to 2-11. Well done to all involved.

Upcoming Fixtures:

Our Seniors will play the North Senior Hurling Championship Semi Final against Templederry Kenyons on Sunday the 20th of August in McDonagh Park, Nenagh at 6.30pm. A victory over our close neighbours and rivals would give us our first North Final appearance since 2010 in what is sure to be a hotly contested encounter.

Our Juniors will be action this Friday evening the 18th of August in Round 4 of the North ‘A’ Hurling Championship versus Burgess in Kilcolman.

Our Minor’s will play the next round of their impressive campaign in the North Minor ‘B’ Hurling Championship this Thursday evening against Borrisokane in the Park. This game will take place at 7pm.

Our U14’s will be action in the North ‘B’ Hurling Championship this Wednesday the 16th of August in the Semi Final against Newport away in Newport at 7.30pm. Will a North Final place at stake it will be a tough assignment for the lads.

After their fantastic victory over Toomevara in the North our U12 ‘A’s will take on Holycross Ballycahill in the County Semi Final this Saturday the 19th of August. Both the time and venue have yet to be announced for this fixture. Details of this fixture will be posted on our Facebook page once they have been announced.
