Line Dancing Classes

I know its only July but the big party season is less than 6 months away. Would you like to lose calories for that special party dress in a fun way without feeling like you are exercising. Then I have the answer for you. From Saturday August 2nd I will be starting a new Line Dancing class in the Marion Hall from 10am – 11.30am. We dance to all kinds of music not just country. If you have never Line Danced before or did it a few years ago and feel you would like to get back into it then come along and have some fun. It’s only €5 per class (pay as you go).

Any queries you can contact me, Suzanne on 0876300336 or you all know me working in Shanahan’s Centra. Im in the shop every Wednesday to Sunday. Hope to see y’all there.

U11 C1 Hurling Gaelscoil Clonmel 8-04 Borrisoleigh BNS 11-04
Borrisoleigh and Gaelscoil Clonmel served up the proverbial humdinger in this U11 C1 Hurling decider. It was clear from the outset that both teams were very intent on going for goal. First half goals from Gaelscoil Clonmel’s Tristan Grant, Ronan MacGiolla Phóil and Peader Céitinn plus majors from Borrisoleigh’s Colm Boyle and Paddy McCormack reinforced this. Paddy McCormack caused consternation in the Gaelscoil Clonmel defence every time he got on the ball. His kicked goal showcased the vast array of skills he has in his locker. Nevertheless, Gaelscoil Clonmel weathered the storm and led at the break by 5-2 to 4-01. Paddy McCormack continued to sparkle for Borrisoleigh in the second half and continued to score at will. On the Gaelscoil Clonmel side, a Lennon Ó Fuaráin goal was the pick of their scores. Borrisoleigh did not give an inch in the closing stages and Mr. Small’s charges were determined to make up for the disappointment of losing out in the Under 13 decider earlier in the day. A composed finish allied to some superb goals from man of the match Paddy McCormack ultimately was enough to get them over the line. This was a cracking contest that had supporters on the edge of their seats from start to finish.

 U13 D Hurling Knockavilla 2-11 Borrisoleigh BNS 3-04 (After Extra Time).
This U13 D hurling decider between two giants of the game served up what was arguably the game of the finals. This match was played at a time of the day when the temperature was close to 28 degrees. The children on both sides are to be seriously commended for the energy and commitment they exhibited from start to finish. Playing extra time in such sweltering conditions must have taken its toll on these young players but you would never have guessed it such was the quality of performances on show. Devon Ryan gave Knockavilla the perfect start with a well taken goal. Alvis Danko responded with a pointed free for Borrisoleigh. When Pauraic Stapleton unleashed a rocket to the Knockavilla net, the Borrisoleigh players suddenly began to grow in confidence. Knockavilla responded well to this setback with points from Barry McCarthy and Joe Fitzgerald. As halftime approached rising North Tipp Peadar Cummins star, Alvis Danko, crashed the ball to the Knockavilla net off his left hand side. Borrisoleigh led by two points at the interval. The second half was end to end with both sides throwing the kitchen sink at it! Lorcan Carr and Devon Ryan struck sweet points for Knockavilla with that man Alvis Danko keeping Borrisoleigh in touch with a terrific goal from a penalty. With the sides level at the end of normal time, it was decided to play six minutes of extra time. Each team maintained the frenetic pace set during normal time. Ultimately scores from Barry McCarthy (1-01) and Seamus Heffernan sealed Borrisoleigh’s fate. Kevin Maher and Alvis Danko from Borrisoleigh plus Lorcan Carr and Devon Ryan from Knockavilla are definitely players to look out for in the future. This was a thrilling spectacle that showcased all the wonderful things about our game. The Knockavilla team contained many of the players who brought a County Under 12 A hurling title to the parish in 2013. Borrisoleigh lost nothing in defeat and were very dignified after what must have been a heartbreaking defeat.
