 Family Fun Day

Borris-Ileigh GAA News 

Inter-County: A massive well done to Brendan, Paddy, Conor,Dan and all the Tipp team and management who overcame Waterford to become Munster Champions. It was a tight and tense affair in which the Tipp lads finished strongest to claim the title. The club was honoured to also have Brendan as captain, who on a busy day for himself, also was named as man of the match. They will now play their All Ireland Semi Final on August 16th.
Junior Hurling: As of now, we have no date for our nest match. Training continues as scheduled for all players. We overcame Templederry by 4 points in round 2 last Thursday night in Borris to get our season back on track. We have still to play Roscrea and Knockshegowna
Sympathies: The club would like to offer its deepest sympathies to the Kennedy and Tierney families of Huntsgrove and Glenbreeda on their recent loss. We would like also like to extent our sympathies to the Ryan family of Drumgill on the recent passing of Billy. Billy was a former club chairman and a staunch Borris man. May their souls rest in peace.

Borris-ileigh Camogie Club 

Our Senior girls are back in action shortly in the Championship. Fixtures for August as follows:
Sat Aug 8th v Annacarty (away)
Sat Aug 22nd v Drom (home)

The U15 Summer League kicked off last Friday, but unfortunately, we were beaten by Kildangan, with a scoreline of 4-08 to 3-01. However, the scoreline did not reflect the play, and although down at half time 2-05 to 0-01, the play picked up for Borris in the second half, with excellent skill by Kate Delaney in the back line, the girls can be happy with this performance.
Scores from: Kate Delaney 2-01 and Laura Maher 1-00.
Next game Thursday July 23rd v Portroe (away).

U13 Summer League commenced on Tuesday July 13th v Portroe. Results to follow.

U12’s headed to Cuman to Croker on July 7th, a fantastic day’s camogie was had by all. To view more photos visit our Photo Gallery or click on the following links:

Also, U10 Tomás Max Tournament takes place this year in conjunction with the Borrisoleigh Festival on Friday evening July 24th. Clubs to participate are Drom, Holycross, Moycarkey & Borris-Ileigh.
