 Borrisoleigh Track Attack
Winning Debut for Niamh

Last week’s Track-Attack event was a “Predict Your Time” session where the participants were randomly broken into teams with the eventual winners determined by the team who finished closest to their collective forecasted time.
Niamh Ryan made her debut with Track-Attack and it proved to be a successful one as she was teamed up with the Templederry duo of Olivia Murphy and Roisin Kennedy. Collectively they predicted a finishing time of 59 mins and 55 seconds and following some excellent running from all 3, they clocked a time of 58 mins and 49 seconds leaving them just 1 minute and 6 seconds outside their prediction.

Team Winner Olivia Murphy

There was a tie for second place on the night with the combination of Tom Shanahan, Caroline Murray and Mary Guest finishing 1:16 faster than their prediction while the trio of Christy Slattery, John F. Kennedy and Conor Gleeson finishing 1:16 slower than their prediction.

The individual title on the night went to Wexford native Mick O’Connor when finishing 2 seconds outside his predicted time for the 3km course.

Gearing Up for Borrisoleigh 5km

The second annual Borrisoleigh 5km will be held on Wednesday 8 July and already some of our local athletes are beginning to gear up for the event. On Thursday night last, 11 people ran the course which was paced by John F. on the night in a comfortable steady pace. If you wish to join the group any night, please feel free to do so. Just follow Borrisoleigh Track Attack on Facebook for details.

Over the coming months, the Tipperary athletics scene will be littered with plenty of activities to suit our Track-Attackers and further their efforts to get ready for our own yearly outing. All roads lead to Loughmore on Friday 1st of May for their annual 7.4km course. We would encourage all our Track-Attackers to go support this well organised event which also acts as a fundraiser for their local primary school.

Borris-Ileigh Juvenile GAA

Many congratulations to our U-14 hurlers and their management team on winning the North U-14 A Féile Hurling Championship.

Captain James Devaney receiving the Cup from North Chairman John Delaney

This was a fantastic achievement that has brought a lot of joy and pride to the parish.

Borris were drawn to play Kilruane McDonaghs in the semi-final. This was a hard fought battle and the boys had to dig deep. At the final whistle the teams were locked in a draw and extra time had to be played. The Borris lads found something extra and finished the stronger team, winning on a score line of 1-07 to 1-05 AET.

This fighting spirit set Borris-Ileigh up for the final in which they took on Nenagh Éire Óg. From the throw in Borris had the upper hand and went on to put on a most impressive display of hurling, showing great hunger and heart. The match finished on a score line of Borris 2-06 Éire Óg 1-04.

Following on from the great success of the Peadar Cummins tournament, it was a great honour to host the North Féile and many thanks to everyone who prepared the fields and facilities and also to the referees.

The boys now go on to represent North Tipperary in the county semi final. the time, date and venue are yet to be decided. We will keep you posted and your support would be greatly appreciated.


Borris-Ileigh GAA Notes

Senior Hurling

Our senior hurlers take to action again on Sunday 26th of April in Nenagh against Kilruane McDonaghs. This game will be round two of the county championship and a good result here will be vital to our chances of progression to the latter stages of the county championship. As it stands Kilruane have two points, with Drom and ourselves on one each while Burgess are on zero. A great crowd attended the game in Dolla against Drom and we hope to see the same and more for the game on the 26th. We encourage all members and supporters alike to make the effort to shout on the lads.

Junior Hurling

Our Junior A team had a fine performance against Toomevara in the second round of the league but unfortunately just came up short in what was a good tough match. Our Junior B team had a good win in the league on Sunday morning beating Borrisokane 2-18 to 0-11.

Track Attack

Best wishes to the Track Attack team as they embark on their “147” fundraiser. The funds raised will go to the upkeep and further development of the track which include widening, extra lights and an extension of the track to 1 mile. We ask that all people support this fundraiser as the track is a huge benefit to the community and we would to stay providing such a great service to the parish, but it is only with your help that we can do it. It is scheduled to take place on the Monday evening of the June Bank Holiday weekend.

Golf Classic

The time of year has rolled around again and we are now preparing for our now very successful annual golf classic. Over the last two years we have had around 100 teams take to the fairways each year for two days of very enjoyable golf. This year the event will take place on June 12th and 13th. A team of 4 will cost €120 and tee boxes will cost €30. Tee box times will be available shortly.
