 Bush & Briar Ramblers Tackle the Camino 

Sheila Devaney, Teresa Ryan and Mary Cummins with Thomas Russell just back from a very enjoyable walk on the Camino, Spain.

Trip to The Camino

"Our route took us from Saint Jean Pied de Port (France) to Estella (Spain), approx 120km over 5 days. On the first day we crossed the Pyrenees which was a little challenging at times but enjoyable, we climbed 1400m. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t in our favour that day, it was wet and misty so the views were hampered. However on our way down the weather improved and for the remainder of the week we had beautiful sunshine which allowed us to savour the stunning views. The landscape was full of oaks, birch, yews, hollies and pines trees.

Our route was varied, mostly track and path with short stretches of quiet road and main road here and there. Sturdy footwear was essential as there was a lot of uneven ground. As we progressed on our route there were plenty of water fonts and no shortage of lovely little cafés where we availed of ‘café au lait’ and a welcome rest in the shade. One evening in particular before we arrived at Pamplona which is one of the five capitals that pilgrims must cross on their way to Santiago de Campostela, we felt like chanting “Are we there yet?” as the sun was beating down and the legs were getting a wee bit weary but other days our destinations took us by surprise.

One morning our walk was delayed for an hour due to a heavy thunder and lightening storm, we had fork lightening on our path so it was safer to wait for the beautiful sunshine which soon followed.

Teresa, Sheila and Mary with Carmel Leonard relaxing after a day’s walking 

We met some very interesting people of many nationalities along the way, all sharing the same journey. We enjoyed excellent accommodation all week and the food and refreshments were second to none. The full Camino trail is approx. 800km so “some done, a lot lot more to do”! Meet you there next year!"

  Borris-Ileigh Juvenile GAA 

Our u16’s played two games recently defeating Ballina in the last group game to qualify for a quarter final. The quarter final was played on Monday night away to Shannon Rovers in Ballinderry. Borris put in a great display to emerge winners on a scoreline 1 12 to 10pts. They will now play Moneygall in the semi final next Monday evening in Moneygall.
Our U14’s were beaten by Kilruane in the North Semi final recently. Despite getting off to a poor start the lads tried their hearts out but were unable to clawback the early deficit. Thanks to all the players, mentors and parents for their support during the Championship. We have entered the U14 plate competition which will commence shortly. No fixtures confirmed to date.

  Borris-Ileigh GAA Club 

Inter county: Well done to Paddy, Brendan and Conor on their involvement in Tipperary’s fantastic win over Cork in the All Ireland Semi Final on Sunday last in Croke Park. The win was made all the sweeter by the great performance put in by our club men and the fact Brendan is Tipperary captain. The All Ireland Final will take place in Croke Park on Sunday September 7th. As you can imagine, tickets will be in high demand so if you are interested in a ticket please contact club secretary Gerry Treacy on 086 3958405 to place your order. A maximum of 2 tickets per member will be permitted.
We would also greatly appreciate if people could put out what ever flags or buntings they have to show their support for the lads-every little helps!
Senior Hurling: Our seniors have been fixed to play Nenagh in the North Semi Final on Sunday 24rd. The game will take place in Nenagh at 4pm and will be the second game of a double header. The first game will see Kilruane take on Burgess in the first semi final. Your support will be greatly appreciated. The mid week game against Silvermines was been called off due to Tipperary’s involvement in the All Ireland.
Junior Hurling: Due to results over the weekend, our Junior B team are now out of the championship. Despite only winning one game in the group stage, we put in many fine performances and have laid a good foundation for next year. It has been a great development for our club to have 3 adult teams representing our club. We would like to thank the players for their great effort this year and we would also like to offer a special thanks to the management of Thomas Fahy, Paddy Stapleton, Benny Harkin and Ciaran Hackett for all the work they put into the team.
