Borris-Ileigh Juvenile GAA Club 

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.

Borrisoleigh through to County Final

On Sunday the 7th October our Junior team played in the county semi-final against Toomevara. It was a cold Sunday afternoon. The spectators certainly got value for money with little separating these two teams. Borrisoleigh started off well and Toomevara were playing catch up from the start. However they did put us under a lot of pressure and had enough chances to register scores on the board however the Borrisoleigh defence did a fine job under pressure. Score at half time Borrisoleigh 1-6 Toomevara 1-3, with Borrisoleigh having the wind in the first half. The second half was very similar to the first with every ball contested. It was a game where both sides fought for every ball and at no stage could anyone relax. The full time score Borrisoleigh 2-8, Toomevara 1-4. There were fine performances from every position on the field. Well done to the panel and mentors. The County Final date and opposition have yet to be confirmed. After such a tough game there will be no training on Wednesday. Training resumes on Sunday morning at 12 noon. Scorers for Borrisoleigh were Nicole Walsh 0-5f, Mary Bradshaw 0-1, Noirin Stapleton 2-0 and Deirdre Corcoran 0-2.  More photos from the day available in a gallery.

 Borrisoleigh Community Develoment Association 
It is that time of the year again and this year the Borrisoleigh Community Development Association plan to produce another annual. We would be very grateful if the clubs/organisations/schools of the community could once again forward us an article and pictures of the activity of your clubs/organisations/schools during the year of 2012. We are also seeking interesting articles that relate to Borrisoleigh. They can be present day or relate to the past. It would be great if some photos accompanied the articles but we will accept articles without photos. Plus we would like to get articles from people who have left the area, of their memories about Borrisoleigh, or from people who have moved into the area of their experiences in the locality. We would also welcome suggestions that may help us to improve the annual.

We aim to launch the annual on the fair of Borris weekend. To enable us to do this we will need all articles and photos by Monday the 29th October 2012. Can all articles be sent in word if possible with photos as separate attachments to this email address borrisoleighannual@gmail.com. Once again your assistance in the production of the 2012 annual will be appreciated.
