Borris-Ileigh Camogie Club Notes 

Under 8 Blitz:

Under 8 team at County Blitz in Borrisoleigh

Our Under 8s participated in the first of the County Development Blitzes on Saturday morning last and there was a great sense of excitement amongst all the girls. 
Participating clubs on the day were  Thurles Sarsfields, Moyne Templetouhy and Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams.
Overall it was a brilliant morning of camogie with plenty of future stars from all 4 clubs displaying their skills.

Under 14’s Win A Thriller:
Our Under 14s played their part in a brilliantly exciting championship contest on Thursday evening last when they secured a last gasp victory over Nenagh Eire Og when Ella Groome rattled the net with a brilliantly struck ground stroke.
The final score was Nenagh Eire Og 3-07, Borris-Ileigh 5-02 
County Intermediate League:
Our Intermediate team played out a very entertaining league match against Boherlahan on Sunday evening last but just came up short on a 4-09 to 3-13 scoreline. 
Next up is Newport on Saturday next with a 1pm start in the Park. 
County Duty:
We had a busy week with county representation last week. Julieanne Bourke led the Tipperary Senior team as joint captain to a victory over Limerick in the opening round of the Munster Championship. Nicole Walsh came on as a second half substitute here also while Denis Kelly was the team coach. 
Emma Maher, Aoife Fitzgerald and Ava Bevans were part of the Under 16 team that defeated Waterford in the Munster Championship while Alesha Fanning was part of the Under 16 “B” team that also overcame the challenge of their Deise opponents.
Tara Fitzgerald, Amy Maher, Lucy Rabbitte and Ava Fanning were part of the North Under 13 teams that played in the Inter-Divisional blitz.

Congratulations: To Keelan Chute, Grangelough who came 3rd in the world championships in Irish Dancing held in Belfast recently. It was a fantastic achievement.  Well done Keelan.


Thought for the week: The world is moving so fast these days that the person who says ‘it can’t be done’ is generally interrupted by someone doing it.

Community Cycle

We headed to Clonmel last Sunday and enjoyed a beautiful cycle on the Greenway to Carrick On Suir in summer sunshine. This is a really nice Greenway which travels along the River Suir with lovely views on both sides and nature all around you. We had visitors with us from Kilkenny, Waterford, Clare, Offaly and our own core group. We had a great day out and would recommend this Greenway to anyone who wants an easy 40km cycle on a very good surface with no climbs.  Thanks to everyone who travelled and John F.Kennedy for his help on the day.
