New ‘Youth 2000’ Prayer Group
Our motto is "Youth leading youth to the heart of the Church". We have experienced the love of God in our lives, and come to know how joyful and fulfilling it is to live out the Catholic faith. We want to share this with others, and lead our peers to Jesus Christ, the source of all love, joy and happiness. Quote from Pope Benedict XVI: Dear young people, the happiness you are seeking has a name and a face: it is Jesus of Nazareth, hidden in the Eucharist.
County Champions – the Under 16 Team that beat Mullinahone to become champions of the Premier County
A display of skill, determination and spirit ensured that we emerged with the spoils from the U16 county final replay against Mullinahone in Boherlahan last Saturday. Though behind on a number of occasions following the concession of an early goal, the lads spirit never flagged and they fought their way back into the game and following a goal by Tommy Mockler, led by two points with 10 minutes to go. However, Mullinahone came thundering back to level and two pointed frees gave them the lead and what looked like the title as the game entered injury time.
Great credit is due to all concerned for the pride they brought to the parish throughout the year. Commiserations also to the young lads from Mullinahone who deserve great praise for the committment, skill and sportsmanship they displayed throughout both games. Borris-Ileigh Panel, Shane McCormack, Darragh Ryan, Damian Dunne, Cathal O’Connell, Liam Ryan, Danny Ryan, Steven Shanahan, Barry O’Dwyer, Daniel Bergin, Seamus Howard, Benny Harkin, Tommy Mockler, Jack Bourke, Dan McCormack, Thomas Ryan, Seamus Burke, Seamus Doolan, John Fitzgerald, Micheal Ryan, Dean Ryan. Managment team of Jimmy Stapleton, Francis Doolan, Tom Hurley and Jimmy Slattery.
