Borris-Ileigh Juvenile GAA Notes

U12 Footballers in Croke Park

Our table quiz went ahead on Good Friday night and was a great night with 28 teams taking part. Winners on the night were Laura Ryan, Alan Ryan and Denise Ryan who incredibly answered all questions correctly. In second place after a tie breaker with 59 questions answered correctly were Martin Ryan, Mark Stapleton, Mattie Stapleton and PJ Kiely. In third place were Joe Kennedy, Paul Boyle, Anthony Ryan and Gerry Treacy. Winners of the juvenile prize were Kate Delaney, Aedin Hogan, Tara Mockler and Cliona O’Connell. The club would like to thank all the businesses that donated prizes for the raffle and all of those who attended on the night.

The Thomas Gleeson Cup was played in Bishop Quinlan Park recently. The first round games saw Oisin Stapleton’s team take on Adam Galvin’s team with Oisin’s team emerging as winners to qualify for the final. In the second game Darragh Quigley’s team played against Bryan Murray’s team and also qualified for the final. The final was an exciting game with some great hurling and plenty of goals scored particularly in the last few minutes. The victorious Captain Darragh Quigley was delighted to accept the Thomas Gleeson trophy from Paul Boyle. Thanks to all the teams and their managers who helped out in any way on the morning.

The U14 footballers travelled to Burgess last Wednesday evening and got off to a whirlwind start with two early goals. The tide turned however and by half time Burgess were back in front. Burgess emerged victorious on a scoreline 6-3 to 5-2.

The U12 Footballers had a busy week when they travelled to Croke Park on Wednesday last and played three games, recording a win against Tramore, and were narrowly beaten by Adare and Killavullan. The boys viewed a GAA promotional video, spent time in the interactive games room, and were brought to the top deck of the Cusack stand and given the history of each of the stands. The U12 Footballers travelled to Moneygall on Friday night and recorded a comprehensive victory. They play Newport at home this Friday evening.

The U10 hurlers took part in a blitz in Dr Morris park last weekend with three games, losing narrowly to Moycarkey and winning against Cahir and Knockavilla.
