Borris-Ileigh Camogie Club Notes

St. Joseph’s through to Munster Final
The St. Joseph’s College camogie teams have been in flying form in recent weeks and following a superb display against Castletroy of Limerick, the senior team have now qualified for the Munster Final. 
The final score was St. Joseph’s Borrisoleigh 4-14 Castletroy 0-07.
The junior team were also in semi-final action but despite a brilliant second half comeback display, it wasn’t to be and the girls just fell short by the narrowest of margins.
The final score was St. Joseph’s Borrisoleigh 5-03 Carrignavar Cork 3-10. 
Adjourned AGM
Our club Adjourned AGM will be held in the old pavilion on Tuesday night next at 8:30pm. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. 
A Mile with a Smile
Details of our upcoming club fundraiser entitled “A Mile with a Smile” will be released soon. In the meantime, dust the cobwebs off the runners and prepare to run, jog or walk a mile for us between the 17th and 20th of March. 
So Near for Drom-Inch
A fantastic effort from our near neighbours Drom-Inch saw them fall just short of achieving back to back Munster Club titles when they were defeated right at the death by Scariff Ogonnelloe in Mallow last Saturday.
Defeat might have been their lot on the day but as a club, they can feel extremely proud of the way they’ve been representing Tipperary camogie in recent times.
Best of Luck to Knockavilla:
Mallow is again the venue for the Munster Intermediate Final on Saturday next and we would like to wish the very best of luck to Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams as they go in quest of glory against the reigning champions and Deise representatives Gailitir.
