Among the players for the Borrisoleigh Team was Aoife, Tomás’s daughter. Borrisoleigh reached the final but were not strong enough to beat the Moycarkey-Borris team who were the ultimate victors.

Holidaying in Edinburgh
Pictured here are James, Tia, Archie, Liam and Sam with the famous ‘Greyfriars Bobby’ memorial in Edinburgh, Scotland recently. They were there for two weeks in June visiting their Uncle who had been hospitalised, but has since gone on to make a full recovery from his injuries. ‘Greyfriars Bobby’ was a Skye Terrier who became known in 19th-century Edinburgh, Scotland, after reportedly spending fourteen years guarding his owner’s grave, until his own death on 14 January 1872.
Happy Birthday Archie!
Archie with his friends Michael and Patrick celebrating his 4th birthday on the 18th August. Congratulations Archie!
