St Patrick’s BNS

North U13 Primary Schools Champions

St. Patrick’s B.N.S. beat Dromakeenan N.S. last Thursday in the North Final of the U-13 primary schools championship. The Borris boys came out on top after a very keenly fought match. At half time Borris led by just a single point, however a very strong final 10 minutes saw St. Patrick’s run out winners on a scoreline of 2-12 to 1-08.

This win meant that our boys have done the double this year having won the Football championship before Christmas! The mentors, teachers and parents of the boys are very proud of them and wish them the very best of luck in the County Final which will be on the 17th or 18th June where they join their younger school mates the U-11’s. Comhghairdeas!!

We are the Champions!

However, on Tuesday last, Borris-Ileigh was victorious over Templemore in this competition. Winning with a score line of 3-1 to 1-6. Both teams were neck and neck throughout, but a fantastic goal from Aoife Ryan in the last minutes of the game, made this u13 team winners by one point.

Ray accepting the Peadar Cummins Cup

Our U10 ½ Community Games hurlers play Toomevara in the area final on this Tuesday evening best of luck to all concerned.

Last Saturday we hosted the annual Peadar Cummins Tournament. On a wet morning North Tipp faced Mid Tipp in the first semi final. A determined North Tipp team put the pressure on from an early stage. With Alvis Danko and Brian McLoughney linking up well in the inside forward line the North opened up a good lead by half time. In the second half North Tipp with Oran Bergin leading from centre back defended well and kept the mid tipp scores to a minimum. A well taken goal by Alvis and a point from Captain Raymond McCormack in the final quarter sealed the win for the North on a scoreline 3-10 to 8 pts. The second semi final was played in the Ragg where the South defeated the west by three points.

Due to the weather conditions the shield final was switched to Durlas Óg pitch in Thurles where the West defeated the Mid by 3 points.. Thanks to Durlas Óg who accommodated us at short notice. The tournament final v South Tipp was played back in Borrisoleigh and again the North raced into an early lead with a brace of goals by Brian McLoughney, further points including 2 from Ray McCormack meant that the North had an 2 -10 to 1pt lead at the interval. North Tipp used their panel of players during the second period with Aaron Rabbitte playing his part also in the final quarter.

PJ Ryan on behalf of Borris-Ileigh Juvenile Club thanked the players from the four divisions, their mentors the Divisional Boards and the Co Boards for making the tournament a success. Joe Kennedy proceeded to present the cup to local man and Captain Ray McCormack. This was a huge honour for Raymond and the Club on the 30th anniversary of the tournament. Well done to Ray, Oran, Alvis and Aaron who all contributed handsomely to the North Tipp victory and represented our Club well on the day. Thanks to the Committee members also who supplied , prepared and served the refreshments on the day.

Our U14’s also played Lismore at the weekend in a challenge game. Thanks to those who supplied and served refreshments for the travelling party also. This week sees the commencement of the U14 hurling championship where we are away to Moneygall/Templederry in Templederry tonight Wednesday and the U12’s are home to Silvermines on Friday evening.

Best Wishes to Kevin Maher who represents St Patricks Boys N.S in the Primary game in Thurles next weekend. Best wishes also to Brendan, Paddy and Conor in the Senior game against Limerick.
