U14: Pride of place this week goes to our U14 hurlers who defeated Burgess in the North U14B plate final on a scoreline of 1-08 to 0-03 in Borrisoleigh on Thursday evening last. The plate was presented to the Borris Ileigh Captain David McCormack by the North Board Vice Chairman David Moran. Well done to all the players who showed great determination and spirit throughout the championship and plate competitions this year. Thanks also to Denis Kelly and Christy Reid selectors who put in a lot of time and effort with this panel during the year and ensured that they were well prepared for the final.
U11 We participated in the Harrington Cup in Templederry on Saturday morning last. Our first game was against Silvermines which we lost on a scoreline 1-02 to .3 pts. Silvermines went on to defeat Upperchurch in the final of the tournament. Thanks to the Templederry Club for the invitation and for the refreshments afterwards.
We hosted the County U16B Co final last week end also. Thanks to the Senior and Juvenile Committee members who helped out on the day.
Borrisoleigh Camogie Club
Another busy camogie weekend. On Saturday the bus left the park with our under 8 to 13 panels. They arrived in Ballinora where the all played a few matches; it was a great experience for our young players. The Ballinora Camogie Club put on a fantastic spread of food for us, thanks very much. After the games were over the girls went to planet leisure & bowling in Blackpool, where they had a few hours of fun and their tea. All arrived safely back in the park shortly after 8 after a fantastic day. It was a pleasure to take such well-behaved girls on a trip; both adults and girls enjoyed the day. Thanks to all involved in the organising of the trip.
Next weekend our under 12’s have their 3rd round of the championship away against Arravale Rovers at 12 noon on Saturday the 13th October. Best of luck to the girls and their mentors.

The presentation of the proceeds of this year’s cycle for the Autistic Spectrum Disorder Unit in Killenaive NS, took place last Saturday 6th October in the Clodagh Bar. The cheque was presented to Therese McCormack school principal by Ruairi O Connell & P.J. Delaney on behalf of Borrisoleigh Charity Cycle. Speaking to the large crowd present Therese thanked the organisers and supporters of the cycle for the great effort put in raising such a large amount which this year totalled €8,625. Since then additional sponsorship has been received which will be forwarded to the Unit. Thanks to everyone who attended on the night and to Lisa, Eamonn and Staff of the Clodagh Bar for their hospitality. 2013 will be the 10th year running the cycle and the organisers hope to make it a special event for that anniversary. Thanks again to everyone for helping out this year.
