Appeal from Foróige


My name is Pauraic Ryan from Foróige in Nenagh. Myself and the regional youth officer Brid Canny are doing some work in trying to set up some new clubs in the North Tipperary area and highlighted Borrisoleigh as an area that could benefit from the setup of a Foróige club. Is there anybody in there area (a community worker etc.) who might be able to assist with the setup of the club in your area?   Any other information that you may require please feel free to email me or the regional youth officer Brid Canny, brid.canny@foroige.ie.

Seniors had a great win over Cahir on Saturday last in the County Quarter Final and have secured a place in the County Semi-Final.

Final Score: Borris-Ileigh 0-15 Cahir 1-08. Scores from: Nicole Walsh 0-10, Aedín Hogan 0-05.

Semi Final v Clonoulty, Sunday 25th September, time and venue to be confirmed. Good luck girls.



Unfortunately, Juniors were beaten by Silvermines in a County Quarter Final last Saturday. Final score Borris-Ileigh 2-03 Silvermines 4-12. Up a point at half time, unfortunately Borris couldn’t keep the pace of a very fit Silvermines team.

Scores from: Caroline Moriarty 1-01, Emma Taylor 0-01, Amy O’Brien 1-00 & Sarah Ryan 0-01.

Unfortunately, this brings to a close the Championship for the Juniors. This newly formed team enjoyed a great years hurling and training and it is a great credit to the girls and their management that they have done so well in their first year in formation. We look forward to next year, when this additional adult team allows a lot of extra girls to continue to train and play as a team.


U10 Tomás Max Memorial Tournament took place on Saturday last. Four teams took part, Moycarkey, Thurles, Holycross & Borris-Ileigh. A great mornings hurling was had with Moycarkey being the victors of the trophy on the day. Well done Moycarkey.

Many thanks to all the volunteers, mentors & referees who gave their time to make this event a success.
