Boys from third to sixth classes at St. Patrick’s BNS represented their school at the Co. Tipperary Cross-Country Finals recently. All the pupils really enjoyed the day and represented their school with pride in the 800m and 1,000m races respectively. Over 1,200 athletes from Primary Schools all over Co. Tipperary participated on the day and the boys from St. Patrick’s were proud and delighted to return home with three gold and five bronze medals.

Our first medal of the day was won by Kevin, fourth class, who ran a brilliant race to achieve an individual bronze medal in the 800m. Following close on his heels were his team-mates, Dan and Micheál whose overall excellent performance ensured gold medals for all three in the team event.

Aaron, sixth class, was our next medal winner, running an excellent race to achieve an individual bronze medal in the 1,000m for fifth and sixth class boys. Once again, his team-mates, Raymond and Seamus, gave the Borrisoleigh supporters plenty to cheer about when they finished strongly and achieved a bronze medal for all three in the team event.

Congratulations to all our prize-winners and to all our athletes who performed so well and represented our school with distinction. Well done boys!

Thanks from Borris-Ileigh Juvenile & Camogie Clubs

The Borris-Ileigh Camogie Club in association with the Juvenile Club would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who bought tickets, those who came on the night, those who sponsored the spot prizes for the night, and all those who helped out on the night and those who sold the tickets for the event. Santa Ponsa or Bust turned out to be great night’s entertainment and everyone seemed to have a good time and a laugh. The show was hilarious and the raffle even more so. Both clubs raised enough money to keep us afloat for another while. Again sincere thanks to all our supporters and sponsors for their generosity.
