U12 Hurling: Our Group 3b team travelled to Dolla on thursday evening last to participate in the Group 3b end games hosted by the Silvermines club. We were drawn against Roscrea in the first game and despite been down four points at half time a great second half performance meant we emerged victorious. In the final we played the host club Silvermines and despite a brave performance were beaten on the night. Well done to the team selectors Michael Galvin and John Hogan and all the players who put in a great effort during the year. Thanks also to the Silvermines Club for hosting the games.
U14: Our U14’s got of to a winning start in the plate competition with a victory over Silvermines in the opening round. The next fixture is away to Shannon Rovers this Wednesday evening.
U16: Our U16A Semi final v Nenagh Eire Og took place last Thursday evening in Borrisoleigh. A couple of early goals gave Nenagh a great start and left our lads with a mountain to climb. They worked hard to get into the game and fought back to within three points. Nenagh however pushed on again to win on a scoreline of 3-13 to 1-11. Thanks to the players for their efforts throughout the year. Great credit is also due to the Manager Brendan Kenny along with his selectors Tom Hurley, Francis Doolan, and Ruairi O Connell for their efforts also.
Well done to Kieran Maher and Eoin Stapleton who represented the club at Inter County level in the U16A and U15B competitions last week end.

Marie Mc Grath accepted a cheque for approx. 7500 euro on behalf of the Hospice. This was a fantastic amount and hopefully as much if not more will be raised next year. On behalf of the Cowan family Breeda thanked all concerned. A great night of music song and craic ensued in to the early hours. We thank the Templetuohy Club Officers, committee and supporters who attended on the night in honour of Mick and also to our own club. We thank the Cowan family for all the food they provided. The sing song was like old times, a case of Borris-Ileigh versus Templetuohy. We sincerely hope this tournament continues well in to the future.
