Borris-Ileigh Camogie Club Notes


Under 14’s in Full Flow:

It was a mixed bag in terms of results in the opening two rounds of the Championship for our Under 14 team but it was far from mixed in terms of the ability and potential within this group of players.

Fethard were the opposition of the opening encounter and for two thirds of the game, our girls were right in the mix. Entering the final stretch however, Fethard proved stronger on the night and ran out 6-07 to 0-05 winners.  

Next up were Cashel King Cormacs and this proved to be a cracking game with both teams showing passages of quality camogie. When the final whistle sounded, it was the Borris girls that proved victorious on a 3-07 to 3-03 scoreline.


Under 12’s Impress:

Our Under 12 team travelled to Ardcroney where they had their first outing of the year against Kilruane. Two hugely entertaining matches ensued with both clubs showing excellent levels of talent within their ranks.

The opening game saw our girls run out 3-00 to 1-01 winners with goals from Aoibhinn Keane, Emma Bevans and Avril Bourke while the second game also saw us record another slender victory on a scoreline of 3-00 to 1-03 with Ava Fanning raising two green flags after Aoife Ryan’s opener.


Under 16’s Come Close:

Our Under 16 team also had their first taste of match play last week with a home challenge match with Holycross Ballycahill. In a cracking encounter, it was the visitors would recorded a one point victory on a 4-06 to 4-05 scoreline.


Coaches Development Programme:

Our club will begin our Coaches Development Programme tomorrow night (Thursday 17th June). Tutor on the night will be our Club Development Officer Mikey Bevans.

Part one on the night will see Mikey working with our Under 6, 8, and 10 coaches which will start at 7pm in the Park.

Part two will then start at 7:45pm and here Mikey will be working with our Under 12, 14, 16 and 18 coaches.

On the night Mikey will be going through various skills, drills and mechanics that are relevant to each age-group.

We would encourage all our coaches to attend on the night. Mikey is rightly regarded as one of the top coaches in the country and we as a club are extremely lucky to have him helping us to develop the coaching programme within our club.


County Representation:

It was a busy weekend for some of our club members with six in total representing their county in some form. The Tipperary senior team can feel hugely unlucky not to qualify for the league final after coming so close to overcoming the challenge of Kilkenny. Here we had both Julieanne Bourke and Nicole Walsh on playing duty while both Denis Kelly and Angelo Walsh were part of the coaching staff.

The county Under 16 team had their first Championship outing against Cork but again unfortunately the final result didn’t favour the Premier. Aoife Fitzgerald’s efforts were rewarded with a starting place on the team while Borris-Ileigh were also represented in the management team with Mike Galvin being the joint manager.

Tomás Max’s ’13 on 13 Challenge’

On Sunday the 13th of June Tomás Max, a 6th class pupil of Scoil Naomh Cualán, Borrisoleigh, completed his epic, ’13 on 13 Challenge’ to raise funds to purchase P.E. equipment for his primary school.
Tomás, who is going to secondary school in Coláiste Mhuire Thurles in September, was inspired to run the 13km distance from his primary school to his new secondary school! 
Tomás’s family, friends and everyone in Scoil Naomh Cualán are so proud of his fantastic achievement and thank him for the money raised as a result of his ’13 on 13 Challenge’. 
All in Scoil Naomh Cualán, wish him the very best of luck as he moves on to a new chapter of his life in Coláiste Mhuire and through his efforts he has left a lasting mark on his primary school. The younger children of Scoil Naomh Cualán are going to benefit over the coming years from the P.E. equipment purchased with the money raised through his exploits. Go raibh míle maith agat Tomás agus go n-éirí an t-ádh leat i gColáite Mhuire.
