Junior: Hard luck to our juniors who were defeated by Nenagh on Friday evening in Dolla. We will now play Burgess on Saturday at 7pm.

Minor: Our minors take to the field Wednesday in their final group game. They will take on Newport in Dolla at 7pm. A win will see them through to a north quarter final.
Inter-County: A massive well done to all involved with Tipperary yesterday on both the senior and minor panels. It was a great day in Croke Park and it was fantastic to see so many club men involved in the success. The All Ireland Final is confirmed for the 4th of September and we would urge everyone to show their support over the coming weeks by hanging out whatever Tipp flags you have
World Games: Well done to Jody Harkin who captained Middle East to the World Games title in Croke Park over the weekend. It was a great sign to see a Borris man to lift silverware in Croke Park once again.
