We hosted The Tomás Max tournament on Friday the 7th June in the park at 7.30 pm. This is a tournament for our under 10’s. Visiting teams were Toomevara, St Cronan’s Roscrea and Moycarkey-Borris. Referees on the evening were Gerry Treacy and Aisling Kiely. In the first round Borris-Ileigh played Roscrea (last year’s champions) and Toomevara played Moycarkey-Borris. Then Borris-Ileigh played Moycarkey-Borris while Roscrea played Toomevara. Moycarkey –Borris were the champions on the evening. Thanks to everyone who helped out on the evening to make the tournament such a success. All the girls who played received a medal. A fine spread of food was provided for our visiting teams. Particular thanks to the Max family. Tomás Max originally a Sarsfields man was chairperson of our club at the time of his premature death. We hold this tournament in memory of his contribution to camogie in Borris-Ileigh; it was fitting to see the trophy go this year to Moycarkey-Borris Fiona Max’s original club.

Thanks to our visiting teams, referees, those who prepared food and those who served the food, those who prepared the pitches and everyone who helped out on the day and the run up to the tournament. It was a lovely evening of camogie with every game hotly contested.

Food Tasting

Local food aficionado Jamie Groome visited the boys in 3rd and 4th to talk about the five types of tastes. The boys then enjoyed fresh smoothies made from locally grown fruits. The boys really enjoyed them. Thanks Jamie!

I think someone doesn’t like their smoothie!
