To Siobhan,John and all the girls,
On behalf of St Brigids Camogie Club I would like to thank you all for the invite to attend the Linda O’Connor memorial tournament on the 01st June. The welcome, encouragement and friendship you showed us all was second to none. Thanks to Liam and Marion, Don and Della and Michael and Marion for giving the girls a bed and plenty of food. As always thanks to Brid for the food in Stapletons on the Saturday night. To all who provided food during the day.
A huge thanks to all the Borris girls our girls think you’re all EPIC and earlier in the day got a bit worried as it was said to me “My God Marion they’re so much better than us they have two hurleys each”. I always knew we would get a great welcome, the problem with Borris is the crack is so good you don’t want to leave.
Finally the girls can’t wait to return the favour so looking forward to having you all up to Westmeath. Many thanks again and especially to Rocky for arranging it all.

Saints All Stars Summer Camp 2013 will run from Monday 22nd of July – Friday 26th of July. It will take place in Bishop Quinlan Park Borrisoleigh starting at 10am and finishing at 2pm. The cost is €50 per child, if there is more than one child per family the price is €45 per child.
There will be a wide mixture of games incorporated into the Hurling, Football and Soccer, with specialist coaches provided for each. Like every year there will be special guests attending and gifts given to the children. I will be taking bookings from now until the 22nd of June, as otherwise I will not be able to order the correct amount of gifts for the kids, and I do not want anybody left disappointed.
If you have any further queries contact me by call or text on 086-3328697. To book a child in call or text the above number with name, age and parish of child. Paddy Stapleton

St. Patrick’s BNS finish with a bang!
U-11 C1 champions
The second final saw the meeting of St. Patrick’s BNS and New Inn NS. St. Patrick’s got off to a great start with a quick goal and a number of points. These scores had New Inn on the back foot and the half ended with a strong lead for Borris. The second half was much different however, New Inn began to hurl much better and quickly cut back the deficit. However the Borris boys stood firm and finished the stronger of the two teams to secure the win and retain the U-11 C1 championship.
Well done to all involved; players, mentors and teachers!
