 Borris IIeigh Juvenile GAA 

Congratulations to our U16 side who defeated Borrisokane in the North U16b final last Saturday in Nenagh on a scoreline of 3-12 to 1 -10. In what was an exciting game from start to finish Borrisoleigh got off to a great start with goals from Kevin Maher and Jamie Corcoran in the first quarter following some good play by Conor Keane and Aaron Rabbitte. In the second quarter though the scores dried up and it took some good goalkeeping from Alvis Danko, along with some great defending from all six defenders particularly Jack Prior who was outstanding, to ensure we had a narrow lead at half time 2-03 to 5pts. In the second half Borrisokane worked hard and got themselves into a two point lead with 10 minutes remaining. A great point from Dan Brookes however sparked Borris Ileigh into life followed by further scores from Jamie Corcoran, Raymond Mc Cormck (1-1), Gerry Kelly and substitute James Devaney. Team Captain Gerry Kelly accepted the trophy from North Board Chairman John Delaney. We will now play Loughmore Castleiney in the Co semi final.

Borris-Ileigh U8 winners of the Meagher Cup on Saturday last

In the opening games Borris Ileigh accounted for Upperchurch and Drom Inch overcame Loughmore Castleiney. In an exciting final Borris Ileigh edged out Drom Inch with a last minute goal. A delighted Borris Ileigh Captain Tom Delaney accepted the trophy on behalf of the Borris Ileigh team. In an equally entertaining plate final Loughmore Castleiney defeated Upperchurch by a single point. Thanks to the team Mentors, parents players and juvenile committee members for their part in making it such an enjoyable mornings hurling.

  A foggy view from the top
We had a fantastic morning on Sunday 21st for our three hour walk on the Devils Bit. It was warm and sunny with not even a breeze at the top of the Bit to cool us down! When we reached the top the view down towards Borrisnafarney and further afield was covered in mist and fog with the wind turbines just peeking through – it was a mystical view! It was a very enjoyable mornings walking.
Enjoying the early morning walk
