Borris-Ileigh GAA Club Notes


A huge congratulations to our Seniors on reaching the clubs first North Senior Hurling Championship Final in 7 years after a great comeback victory over Templederry Kenyons in McDonagh Park in Nenagh last Sunday evening. We found ourselves 5 points down with 5 minutes to go with the score at 0-19 to 0-14 but thanks to two late goals from Brendan Maher and Conor Kenny we managed to come out on top on a score line of 2-16 to 0-20. Well done to all involved, we can now look forward to a North Final against Nenagh Eire Og on Saturday the 2nd of September in McDonagh Park, Nenagh at 6pm.


Our Minor’s recorded a good victory over Borrisokane in the North Minor ‘B’ championship last week. They came out on top on a score line of 2-16 to 3-08. Well done to both players and management.


Well done to our U14 hurlers who also booked their place in the North ‘B’ Championship Final last Wednesday evening after a hard fought victory away to Newport. In a game that ebbed and flowed from start to finish the teams went in level 1-05 a piece at the break. An early second half goal from Eddie Ryan set us on our way to a 3 point victory on a score line of 2-10 to 2-07. They will now go on to play Ballina in the final. Well done to all involved.

Liam Devaney:

Borris-Ileigh GAA Club would like to extent its deepest sympathies to Devaney family following the passing of one of the clubs greatest Liam Devaney.  

A fantastic servant to both club and county he won the Dan Breen Cup with Borris-Ileigh in 1953, Liam was also a huge part the infamous Tipperary team of the 60’s who captured the Liam McCarthy Cup 5 times in that period, including being awarded the Texaco Hurler of the Year Award in 1961.

Renowned for his versatility, the Liam played in five different positions in his five All-Ireland victories and lined out in every position except full-back during his time with the Premier County.

May he rest in peace.


Well done to our U12 hurlers who fought bravely from start to finish in an epic contest against Holycross Ballycahill in their ‘A’ County Semi Final last Monday evening in The Ragg. The game finished in a draw after extra time on a score line of 3-09 to 2-12, with the teams being level at both half time and full time in both normal and extra time. A fantastic contest from start to finish a draw was the fairest result. The replay has been fixed for Sunday the 27th of August in Dundrum at 2pm. Best of luck to the players and management, hopefully they can come out on top this time around.
