Action from the final against Drom & Inch


The U8 Meagher Cup took place on Saturday morning last in Borrisoleigh with Borris Ileigh, Templederry, Drom Inch and Upperchurch taking part. In the semi finals Drom Inch beat Upperchurch and Borris Ileigh beat Templederry. This meant that Borris Ileigh played Drom & Inch in the final. In a very exciting game Drom & Inch got off to a great start but Borris responded well and a couple of goals just before half time gave Borris Ileigh a lead which they held onto until the end. Rose Stapleton presented the Meagher Cup to Daniella Ryan Captain of the Borris Ileigh team. In the plate final Upperchurch narrowly beat Templederry and Rose Stapleton presented the Upperchurch Captain Sean Ryan with the trophy. Thanks to Paddy Stapleton who attended to present medals to all four teams after a great mornings hurling. Thanks also to Cathal o’Connell and James Mc Cormack who refereed the games and to the those who got the field ready on the morning.
U10’s: Next Saturday attention turns to the U10’s as the same four clubs will compete in the annual Mick Prior tournament. It would be appreciated if parents and Committee members could drop down a few sandwiches buns or cakes to the pavilion on Saturday morning.
U14 Plate on Monday evening we lost to Burgess on a scoreline of 3-08 to 2-08. This means that three teams have finished level at the top of the group Borris Ileigh, Silvermines and Burgess. A draw has now to take place with one side going straight to the final and the other two teams playing off for the second place in the final.

 All the teams showed great skill

U21 Hurling: We are drawn against Kilruane in the first round. The fixture and venue are not known yet. Next Friday the 28th a challenge has been arranged versus Holycross at 7.30pm. in the Park. All players please turn up in time.

Junior C Hurling; On the back of two good wins we now find ourselves in the Semi-final. This team is progressing nicely so lets hope it will continue. Its nice to see some of the older retired players back again and with a mix of the younger players things are looking up. Best of luck to all concerned.

Club merchandise is available every Saturday in the pavilion between 11am to 1pm or contact 087 9439531.

Lotto: We thank all our sellers and the people who support us week in week out. Sales are going nicely at present but we urge more people to buy as this is our only source of income at the moment. In these recessionary times its difficult to fundraise but a lotto ticket is available for €2 which is reasonable enough.

The club extends its deepest sympathies to the family and relatives of Billy O Brien who passed away recently. Ar dheis de go raibh a anam dilis.

We had another very busy Saturday on the 22nd with three of our teams out playing. It was a fine day for playing camogie from the under 8 Blitz right through to the junior’s fifth round of the championship with mixed results for our teams.
At 9.45 am our under 8’s had a blitz in the Ragg where they competed against Ballybacon Grange, Boherlahan and St. Mary’s Clonmel. The girls enjoyed their last Blitz of the 2012 season and all our girls got Medals. They’ve performed well throughout the season and have shown improvement as the year went on. Well done to the girls and their trainers and the under 8 hurling team who won the Meagher cup on Saturday.
Then at 12 noon our under 12 team had their first game of the championship. They played Templemore in Templemore. They got on very well with a convincing win over the opposition. The final score being Borrisoleigh 3-3, Templemore 1-4. This was a great start to the championship and should give the girls plenty of confidence going forward. Again well done to the girls and trainers.
Our Junior team were out against Holycross at home in the Park on Saturday at 5.30 pm. It was a very low scoring game when compared with our games from the previous rounds. Unfortunately things did not go our way this time round. In spite of Borris having possession of the sliothar for most of the first half we lead by just one point when the whistle blew. The second half saw fewer scores again and we had only that point to spare for most of the second half. However Holycross drew level with less than 5 minutes left to play then then got two frees which they converted into points. This left the score at full time Borrisoleigh 1-8, Holycross 1-10. Scorers for Borrisoleigh were Nicole Walsh 0-5 (4f) Noirin Stapleton 0-2 and Deirdre Corcoran 1-1. The team was extremely disappointed with the result. However having won four of our five matches this sees us top our group and into the semi-final against the runners up of the other group.The date for the semi-final has been set for the 7th October time, place and opposition yet to be decided.

On Tuesday evening we had our draw for the two signed Tipperary Jersey’s and a signed hurley. First prize Darragh Ryan Pallas Street, second prize Emma Ryan Ballyroan and third prize Tara Mockler Nenagh Road. The club raised €1511 thanks to everyone who supported same. Thanks to Brendan Maher who presented the prizes to the winners.
