Borris-Ileigh – County Senior Hurling Champions 1981, 1983, 1986
The eighties were a great time for the club and when they won the county final in 1981 they were returning to the winners enclosure in senior hurling for the first time in twenty eight years. They went on to win again in 1983 and 1986. The county champions of 1986 continued their good work into the following year, winning the All-Ireland Club final in Croke Park on March 17th, gaining victory by 2-9 to 0-9 over Rathnure.
