It was a busy weekend last weekend with both the Seniors and Juniors playing Drom and Clonoulty respectively at home.

Seniors had a great over Drom in the League and have topped the group. A very tense match for the onset, with Borris down by two points at half time. Borris came out blazing in the second half and scored five points in a row, Drom scored a goal to level, and a further point, but two free points from Aédin Hogan, brought us out in front to win this narrowly by one point. Well done girls.
Final Score: Borris-Ileigh 1-09 to Drom 2-05.
Scores from: Eimear Lyons 1-00, Caitriona Maher 0-01, Mary Bradshaw 0-01, Niamh O’Donoghue 0-01 and Aédin Hogan 0-06.

Semi-Final is set for Sunday April 10th.

JUNIOR B League:

Next match away v Boherlahan planned for Sunday April 17th at 12 noon.
U16’s next game Tuesday April 5th v Moneygall at home at 6.45.

U14’s play Moycarkey (away) on Monday 4th April at 7 p.m.

U12’s are out shortly.

Best of luck to all.

What a very enjoyable evening we had at  last months meeting. We had a make up and beauty evening with beautician Brid Harty. Brid gave some helpful tips and answered any questions put to her and she also gave out goodie bags of samples . Brid did a make over on one of our members. There was a raffle on the night for some lovely make up hampers supplied by Brid. We would like to say a Big Thank You to Brid for a great evening.

Next month’s meeting takes place on Wed April 6@ 8.30pm in the Community Centre. We are hoping to have Emer O’Connell of Health and Harmony Thurles to attend and she will be giving a talk on food and nutrition and giving advice on what we should or shouldn’t be eating. This should be another good evening and we welcome anybody to attend.
