Our Sevens team (Carmel O’Brien, Nora O’Brien, Julie Kelly, Deirdre Corcoran, Nicole Walsh, Marie Ryan, Michelle Ryan, Noirin Stapleton, Mary Bradshaw and Niamh McGrath) did well at the Daintree Paper All Ireland Camogie Sevens. They got through the play off stages, won their quarter final and were in hard luck to lose out at semi-final stage. Well done to the ladies and mentors, this experience should stand to them for the championship.

First game was against Creggan, the final score was 6-2 Borrisoleigh, 6-5 Creggan. The team then played Donaghmore where the girls all found form with the score at full time being 12-4 Borrisoleigh, Donaghmore 1-2. They next met the home team Kilmacud A with the team continuing to perform well final score being 6-3 Borrisoleigh, 1-6 Kilmacud. This saw us safely through to the quarter final where we met Oilgate, again the girls fought of tough opposition leaving the score at full time 8-2 Borrisoleigh, Oilgate 6-1. This result lead us to a semi-final against Kilmessan, where the posts saved Kilmessan several times from what looked like sure goals, plus a few narrow wides and decisions going against us left the score at full time Borrisoleigh 4-1, Kilmessan 4-4. The scorers for Borrisoleigh in the competition were Deirdre Corcoran, Nicole Walsh, Michelle Ryan, Mary Bradshaw, Noirin Stapleton, Julie Kelly and Marie Ryan between them they clocked up a serious tally on the scoreboards.

 Borrisoleigh Charity Cycle 2012 

Tom McGrath, Catherine Ryan and Helen Hurley ready for take off!!!


This year’s cycle in aid of the provision of special class facilities for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder in Killenaive National School, Killeen, Nenagh took place last Sunday 16th September. Once again there were two events a 25-mile and a 50-mile cycle. An unprecedented number participated this year with 130 cyclists taking part. Heavy rain in the morning gave away to dry bright weather for the afternoon and while the wind may have been a little unkind on the home legs from Rathdowney and Templemore the majority of cyclists agreed that it was preferable to wet conditions. Both cycles were completed without incident and all taking part were home and enjoying well earned refreshments in the Marian Hall shortly after 4.30pm prepared and served once again in large quantities by the large team of volunteers who ensured that nobody went home hungry.
This event, which has once again been a tremendous success, would not be possible without such volunteers and all of the other people who provide their time and effort to assist on the day and also provide donations, support and sponsorship when asked. The organisers would like to thank everyone who helped out on the day in any way ensuring another successful outing. This includes the stewards who manned the safety cars at the front and back of each group and carried the refreshments that were available at each stop. The motorbike marshals who ensured a safe passage through all roads and junctions and the First Aid Officers. Thanks also to Sergeant Tom McCormack of Borrisoleigh Garda, Gardai Lorcan Looby and John Keating and also the Gardai and Traffic Corps in Thurles who arranged and escorted the group safely through the town, Upperchurch Cycling Club who provided support and repair cars. Refreshments during and after the cycle were provided by Gleeson Group, Walsh’s Costcutters, Donal Hurley’s Gala, Shanahans Centra, Stapletons Bakery and Lidl Nenagh. Thanks also to the Marian Hall Committee who made the hall available for the serving of the post cycle refreshments. The organisers would also like to thank everyone who prepared and served all the refreshments that were available in the Marian Hall and helped to tidy up afterwards. Thanks also to the staff and board of management of Killenaive NS for their assistance.
In conjunction with the charity cycle an additional fundraiser was organised last Thursday. A jersey day took place in St.Joseph’s College Borrisoleigh where over EUR300 was collected. Thanks to all who contributed to this event. Thanks to the management, staff and pupils of St. Joseph’s College for their cooperation.
Finally great praise and credit is due to all the cyclists who gave their time and effort to take part on the day and also to their very generous sponsors. Currently the sponsorship money has reached almost EUR4,000 but there are a number of cards still outstanding and all cards and money should be returned as soon as possible to PJ Delaney or Ruairi O’ Connell as the organisers would like to present the sponsorship raised in the coming weeks. Details for the presentation night will be arranged shortly.

Fit4Life Templemore Track & Trail Run 2012

We had an incredible turnout for our 2nd annual Track & Trail Run on Sunday 16th September in Templemore Town Park. 207 entrants took part in the 4 mile run which started on the Athletic Track and continued around the lake and through the woods in the Town Park before finishing back at the Track. We were fortunate with the weather as after a wet morning, the sun came out and it was a nice afternoon for running. The first man home was Shane Mullaney (Thurles Crokes), followed closely by Tony Reilly (Ballyroan/Abbeyleix) and Andrew Smyth (Coolquill). Margaret Danagher (Templemore) was the first of the ladies to cross the line, followed by Grace McConnell (Ballyroan/Abbeyleix) and Marie Fitzgibbon (Thurles Crokes). We want to thank all who turned out on the day, in particular those who travelled long distances to take part, from Wicklow, Dublin, Cork and Limerick to name a few. Thanks also to the volunteers who helped with stewarding the course and catering in the clubhouse afterwards. Full results are available on the Tipperary Athletics website and photos from the day are on our own Facebook page.
