The championship campaign got off to an excellent start, with a comfortable win over Annacarthy on Saturday the 10th August in Annacarthy 7 pm. They played with the win in the first half building up a lead of 2-8 to 0-1 at half time. They continued with fine performances from all areas on the pitch. The score at full time was Borris-Ileigh 3-13 to Annacarthy 1-4. Indeed Annacarthy only scored once from play. Well done to the senior hurling team who were playing at the same time and also won and remain in the championship.
