 Borris-Ileigh GAA Notes 

Paul Maher, Michelle Stapleton and Ciaran Cowan playing our national game "down under"
Hurling Down Under: Our pictures show some of our fellow club men and women in action for different teams in Sydney. The Sydney Championship is currently under way with 3 rounds played. Ciaran Cowan is lining out at centre back for Michael Cusacks and recently gave a man of the match performance in their league final win over Syndey Shamrocks, for whom Paul Maher was playing for. The two lads also lined out against each other the following week in the first round of the championship which ended in a draw this time. Also pictured below is former Borrisoleigh Camogie captain Michelle Stapleton who is playing for Clan na nGael. Unfortunately we have lost some players due to emigration but it is good to see that they are still playing our national game thousands of miles away. Hopefully we will see them back in the maroon of Borris sometime soon.
Development: As some may have seen, machinery has moved into the park in the past weeks. This is the start of the development of our new field and will be ongoing over the coming weeks. The initial phase will see the removal of both ditches in the new field, grading of the bank and development of the field. This is an exciting new phase for the club and we hope everybody gets behind it and helps support it when called upon. This will be a project that will benefit everybody in the community and will stand for generations. We also ask that parents be vigilant of children in the park over the coming weeks as there will be an amount of heavy machinery operating in the vicinity.

Lotto: Our club lotto continues to grow and now stands at €12400. Tickets can be purchased locally and online and cost just €2. It is a vital time for club finances as major development is taking place and we encourage people to play as often as possible and to try and get new people to play evey week.

The whole bunch

Girls and boys learning new skills

Showing off their skill!!

Some happy faces at the camp!!

A great week was had by coaches and kids at this years activity camp. Although the weather was not always bright, the attitude of the (100 approx) kids and parents was. The kids engaged in hurling, football, soccer and rugby from the little 5 year olds to the very mature 14 year olds.

I want to thank the coaches Denis, Jody, Martin, Aisling and Barry for the great work throughout the week, especially when I could not be there on Monday. Special thanks to my mother Patricia and brother Paul for giving a great hand out.

I’d like to thank the town park committee for the use of the facilities throughout the week, and it was great to see the work in the park commencing, and beginning to take shape.

Lastly I’d like to thank the parents for their support for the camp in the past three years, it is much appreciated.

I hope to have new activities for the camp next year please God.

Paddy Stapleton.
