Borris-Ileigh GAA Club Notes



Huge commiserations to our U21 Hurlers who’s run in this year’s North U21 ‘A’ Hurling Championship came to end last weekend after defeat at the hands of KIladangan. The game finished on a score line 3-24 to 0-18. In a very physically charged first half there was little or nothing between as some great first half scores from Kieran Maher, Jerry Kelly and Micheal Carey meant we went in only 2 points in arrears at the break with the score at 0-12 to 0-10. Kiladangan asserted their dominance early in the second half scoring 1-04 in the opening 5 mins of the second half making it an uphill battle from there on out, two late goals sealing the win. As Kiladangan won both their games against ourselves on Moneygall/Clonakenny the final group fixture will not be fulfilled as they cannot be caught at the top of the group.  Congratulations to Kiladangan and best of luck to them in the rest of the competition.

Upcoming Fixtures:

Our Seniors will play their final competitive game of the year this Saturday as they take Drom Inch in the County Senior Hurling League Division One Final. The game will take place in the Ragg at 4.30pm. Hopefully we’ll have another piece of Silverware to round off what has been a fantastic year for the club. Best of luck to both players and management. All support greatly appreciated.

St Josephs entered two teams in the Munster junior D 7 aside camogie blitz held in Borrisoleigh on October 4th. Teams from Killenaule, St Ailbes Tipp town, Kilfinane, St Anne’s Tipp town and
Gaelcholaiste Luimnigh provided very competitive opposition. All girls got game time and the second year girls deservedly reached the final against Kilfinane . Borrisoleigh had great performances
from Katie Fitzgerald, Danielle Ryan, Louise McGrath Dunne,Miriam Murphy, Caoimhe Carey , LauraYoung, Emma Doolan and Aoife Dwyer but Kilfinane were physically too strong and won by 5.1 to 2.3. There was some great work done by the first years who will be putting serious pressure on theolder girls for a place on the junior team for the Munster championship. The senior girls are due to play their first game in the Munster championship versus Croom shortly.
