Borris-Ileigh Camogie Club Notes 

Intermediates Bow Out:
Our participation in the County Intermediate League came to an end on Saturday last when we were defeated in our final round robin game by Newport Ballinahinch. 
In a low scoring encounter,  Newport ran out 1-06 to 0-05 victors with our scores coming from Emma Galvin and Dani Ryan who both scored one each while the other three came from the stick of Ava Bevans. 
Two Defeats for Under 16s:
After recording two impressive victories in a row, we had to succumb to the performances of both Annacarty and Thurles Sarsfields last week as they recorded well deserved victories over our girls. 
Despite a much improved second half performance against Annacarty,  we were defeated on a 7-04 to 1-05 scoreline while Thurles turned around a half time deficit to run out 4-15 to 5-04 winners. 
County Duty:
Congratulations to all our players who were on county duty last week. 
Abi Kelly and Grace Stapleton were on the Tipperary Under 14 team that impressively defeated Cork on a 6-13 to 2-08 scoreline. 
Julieanne Bourke and Nicole Walsh were part of the Tipperary Senior team that clinched a draw against Clare in Semple Stadium in the Munster Semi-final where Denis Kelly is also part of the coaching staff.
Well done also to Therese Groome and Eve Maher who were named on the Under 15 Development panel.
Dani Ryan was on county football duty on Sunday as part of the Tipperary County minor panel who played Cork in the Munster Final but unfortunately they came up short on a 3-11 to 2-05 scoreline.

 Mgr. Joseph McGuinness, Executive Secretary of the Irish Episcopal Conference.:

 “Sincere thanks to all who contributed so generously to the recent Special Collection for Ukraine. Nationally, this collection has raised to date over €3.25 million. The war in Ukraine, and the terrible suffering which has resulted, has seen a tremendous outpouring of compassion and generosity from our parish communities. Your contributions will bring much-needed relief to those in the region whose lives and livelihoods have been devastated. The funds raised will be used by the international Catholic Church agency, Caritas Internationalis, which is currently operating on the ground in Ukraine and its surrounding areas.  We continue to keep the people of Ukraine in our thoughts, praying for peace and an end to this appalling humanitarian crisis.”


 The Third Age charity’s ‘Failte Isteach’ service is now available in most counties across the State in order to facilitate, in an informal setting, improved English language skills for refugees.  This service is free and run by local volunteers.  In order to locate the nearest English language class in your location, please see https://www.thirdageireland.ie/failte-isteach/locations


Thought for the week:  If we really believe we are children of God, should we not call home more often?
