All-Ireland Club Hurling Final

The Borrisoleigh Website Committee would like to pay tribute on behalf of the whole community to the players and backroom team of the Borris-Ileigh senior hurling team for all their efforts over the last year culminating in reaching the All-Ireland Club Final last Sunday in Croke Park. While in the end the Tommy Moore Cup didn’t return to Borrisoleigh, the team has given its supporters lots of great experiences that will live long in the memory and attracted huge support from all over Tipperary and beyond. It was great to see such huge support in Croke Park with people travelling from all corners of the country and indeed from abroad to be there. Thanks to all involved for their commitment. Borris Abú!

We have a selection of photos from Liam Ryan in a gallery.
