Rose of Thurles

Winner of the Rose of Thurles Aimee with her Tiara designed by Borrisoleigh woman.

Tiarabelle designs were delighted to be associated with the Rose of Thurles competition which was held in HQ in Thurles recently. Local girls from in and around the surrounding areas represented the business that they work for. The event was based on the idea of Rose of Tralee. It was a great event and the winning girl to receive a Tiarabelle tiara was Aimie who was representing The Source Cafe. The winning Tiara was called Belle. Tiarabelle would like to invite people to visit the Facebook page and if they like what they see "Like" the Tiarabelle page.

Heres to the Rose of Thurles 2012 with a Borrisoleigh representative winning!!

Borris-Ileigh Juvenile GAA Club

Mick Prior Cup

Well done to our U10s who won the Mick Prior Cup in Borrisoleigh last Saturday with wins over Borrisokane in the semi-final and Drom-Inch in the final. Well done to the mentors,Paddy,T.J., John, Gary and John Joe who have put in a lot of work coaching these lads over the last few years and the fruits of their efforts were realised with Borris-Ileigh retaining the trophy won last year. This was a great tournament once again with an array of talent and skills on display. Both semi-finals went down to the wire with Borris-Ileigh and Drom-Inch reaching the final after two great battles with Borrisokane and Kilruane respectively. Kilruane won the Plate final with a narrow victory over Borrisokane. In the Mick Prior Cup final the teams were level at half-time at 1-2 apiece however two goals from Borris-Ileigh in the second half and a strong defensive display ensured the cup stayed in Boerrisoleigh for another year. Sean Prior on behalf of the Prior family presented the Mick Prior cup and medals to James captain of Borris-Ileigh. Our thanks to Sean and all the Prior family and all who provided and served refreshments and prepared the field. Thanks also to the players mentors and supporters from our own club, Borrisokane, Drom-Inch and Kilruane.

Meagher Cup


The previous Saturday we hosted our annual U8 tournament with teams from Borris-Ileigh, Upperchurch/Drombane, Drom/Inch and Templederry taking part. As always the hurling displayed by such young players was highly skillful and the great work being done by the coaches in all four clubs must be admired and acknowledged. In the end the final which was played out between Borris-Ileigh and Upperchurch was a very close affair with Upperchurch squeezing home by the narrowest of margins to win the Meagher Cup for the first time. Rose Stapleton presented the cup to the Upperchurch captain and our local county star Paddy Stapleton presented the medals and spoke to the all young players present. Our thanks to Rose and Paddy and to all who helped out and supported the teams on the day. Our thanks to our referees for both tournaments Dan McCormack and Tommy Kavanagh who did a great job both days.
