Well done to our TY’s who recently took on the challenge of walking up the

returned home safely

Tetrathlon August 2014

Two of our students, Richard O Donoghue, Templederry (TY student) and Sean Ryan, Borrisoleigh (Leaving Cert 2014) were part of the Senior Boys team who came third in the Irish Pony Club Tetrathlon Championships on the 2nd,3rd & 4th August 2014. Sean Ryan rides with Golden Vale and Richard O Donoghue with Nenagh. They formed a team with Matthew O Meara (Duhallow) and Chris Oakley (Ward Individual). The four events were shooting, swimming, riding and running. Sean finished joint 1st in the riding and Richards strong running, resulting in 11th overall, aided the team to claim third place overall. This remarkable achievement of Sean & Richard in a National event are to be commended. We wish them well in the future.

Kildangan won the County Minor B title on Saturday last in Cloughjordan and had Billy Seymour (3rd Year) in their side. Congratulations to Billy and the Kildangan team.

Final best wishes to the Junior Cert class of 2014, who will be receiving their results on Wednesday September 10th.

Borris-Ileigh GAA Notes

Inter-County Hurling: Well done to Paddy, Brendan, Conor and all the Tipp lads on a magnificent performance against Kilkenny on Sunday in the All Ireland Final. It was a game that was played at massive intensity for a full 70 minutes with only a few inches being the difference in the end. The game will be replayed on Saturday the 27th of September in Croke Park with throw in at 5pm. Tickets will be on sale shortly and as always, club members will get first preference.

Senior Hurling: Due to the draw in the All Ireland Final, our match against Silvermines has been postponed until the weekend after the All Ireland. Training continues at usual times.

Minor Hurling: Hard luck to our minors who lost out the Newport Gaels in the North ‘A’ Semi Final last Wednesday evening on a score line of 1-20 to 1-13. It was a close match with the two sides going in level at half time. However a strong last 20 minutes from Newport saw them come out on top. Newport then went on to win the North Final on Saturday beating Toomevara.

U16 Hurling: Our U16 team will play Borrisokane in the North Final on Saturday 20th of September. There has not been a venue named yet but we will let people know as soon as possible.
