The Borris-Ileigh U’16 panel will undertake a fundraising effort in co-operation with the Senior hurling panel on the weekend of the 19th & 20th March. This is a sponsored climb of Keeper Hill (the highest mountain in North Tipperary) as well as Galtymore (the highest mountain in County Tipperary in the same weekend. As this would be a very commendable achievement by all concerned, all members of both panels will be looking for sponsorship in the coming weeks in recognition of this effort. It is important to note that all monies collected by the respective panels will stay within those panels, i.e. whatever money the U’16 players raise, stays in the U’16 panel. The U’16s are seeking to raise money to buy a new set of jerseys for the coming year. This is an excellent initiative by the team as they are taking the preparation of their own team into their own hands and is a very worthwhile cause. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated in the coming weeks
