Borris-Ileigh Camogie Club Notes 

Camogie Fever to Hit Borrisoleigh:
Camogie Fever is set to hit Borrisoleigh over the next two weeks as our Intermediate team prepare for their upcoming County Final.
After an absolutely titanic battle in the semi-final against Kilruane MacDonaghs on Saturday last in which it took extra extra time to decide the victor, we will now face Shannon Rovers in the final.
A dozen points from the stick of team captain Aedin Hogan along with 0-03 from Aoife Fitzgerald, (0-02) from Dani Ryan and a goal a piece from Emma Maher and Noirin Stapleton saw Borris claim the victory on a 2-17 to 4-08 scoreline.
