Jimmy Stapleton on behalf of Stapleton’s Bakery and Joe Loughnane Finn’s Bar presenting a new set of U14 jerseys to Michael Carey Chairman Borris-Ileigh Juv GAA Club
Over the last few weeks we played a number of hurling and football games in tournament and championship, U10s played in the Paddy Carey tournament hosted by Drom-Inch and captained by Dylan Molloy won the Plate final beating Thurles Gaels, U12s lost to both Ballina and Silvermines in the U12 football championship, U14s lost to Kilruane McDonaghs in the Feile na nGael North quarter final, and our U16s went down to Templederry and drew with Kildangan in the U16 football championship.
Congratulations to following players who represented the club on the North Football squads over the last few weeks, U14 Danny Ryan and Jack Hogan, U15 Paidi Scanlon, Dylan Reid, Dean Ryan and Thomas Ryan and U16 Seamus Howard and Darragh Ryan, well done to all.
Fixtures, the football championship continues over this week with the U14s playing Kilruane on Wednesday and the U12s due to play Newport on Friday.
The U14 hurling panel received a new set of jerseys for the coming season. Due to sponsorship received from Joe Loughnane of Finns Bar and Jimmy Stapleton of Stapleton’s Bakery, a large chunk of the cost of the set was covered. The players were delighted to receive them in a presentation from Jimmy Stapleton last weekend. Unfortunately Joe Loughnane was unavailable to attend. The club would like to acknowledge the generosity of both businesses.
Any outstanding membership forms should be returned as soon as possible to team managers or committee members.
