Borris-Ileigh Juvenile GAA Club

Fixtures & Results

Our U14 football team were narrowly beaten in the North Final by Burgess last Thursday in Nenagh on a scoreline of 1-5 to 1-3. In atrocious condition our young lads gave a tremendous display and at the end of the first half led by 1-2 to 0-1. However, Burgess came out much stronger in the second have and eventually drew level with a goal with only minutes remaining. Burgess then scored two points without reply to take the title. Congratulations and well done to our young lads on reaching the final they did themselves and the club proud. Well done also to Burgess and we wish them well in the County semi-final.
