Borris-Ileigh Juvenile GAA Club

Hurling Championship: U12 Our division 2 team following a good win over Templederry in the quarter final, lost out to Borrisokane in the semi-final. Despite a very good display, the early goals conceded meant we were chasing the game and despite reducing the gap to 2 points we couldn’t get any closer. Well done to all the young players and mentors Michael Delaney, Damian Dunne and John Walsh for their efforts throughout the year. The Div 3 team also suffered defeat in their quarter final against Roscrea. Again this was a very good display from our players and well done to them and mentors Paddy Ryan & John Vahey for all the effort put in. U14 Hurling C/ship, we are awaiting our semi final opponents in the North c/ship and due to a play off this won’t be known until later in the week. Date for semi-finals not yet decided. U16s, losses to Ballina, Newport and Toomevara despite playing some very good hurling in recent weeks mean we are unlikely to qualify for the semi-finals.

Our U13s took part in the L.J Drennan Tournament in Kilcotton on Sat 16th July and came away with a win a draw and a defeat but didn’t make the knockout stage. Thanks to Kilcotton for the invitation and hospitality
