U12 County Champions

What a day on Saturday 1st September 2018 for both our u12 teams, our Club and for Borrisoleigh. We couldn’t be prouder as a club of these great bunch of players. They gave it everything and they got the result they deserve. On behalf of the club we thank you for giving all of us a fantastic and enjoyable season of hurling to watch. To the mentors and management of both the teams, Philip, Mark, Jody, Anthony, Diarmuid, Corey, Jamie & Declan well done on a fantastic job and for all the time and effort you have all put in throughout the season. 

For our celebrations Saturday evening a few thank yous need to be given. To Trevor and Henry for providing our fantastic transport to parade our winning Trophies through Borrisoleigh, and to Borrisoleigh Bouncy Castles for graciously providing great entertainment for everyone to enjoy. For our BBQ we thank Joey O’Dwyer butchers for sponsoring the delicious food. For feeding us all and cooking all evening a huge thank you to Jamie and Corey. A great evening was had by all. 
So once again Congrats to all involved and to a day we will always remember. Borris Abú!

Track Attack

Inspirational Andrew’s Cycle Achievement

Track-Attack present Andrew with his medal and t-shirt after completing a 30km cycle in the Presidential Run. L-R PJ O’Toole (Andrew’s father), Betty Slattety (Track-Attack), Andrew O’Toole, Paul O’Toole (Andrew’s uncle)


Track-Attack’s Presidential Run was a huge success with outstanding individual and collective achievements rolled out in abundance. From swimming the river Barrow to 50km runs to 100km cycles, but one achievement stood head and shoulders above all others.

Over two years ago when living in his native New York, Andrew O’Toole suffered brain trauma following a sports injury which resulted in him lying in a coma for a month and was then further hospitalised for two years. He was told that he’d never walk again.

Along with his family, he came to live in Ireland and was introduced to the sport of cycling by his uncle Paul.

On the Saturday of the Presidential Run, Andrew became a true Track-Attack hero when he joined the cycling crew and cycled the 30km leg from Durrow to Clonmore.

Take a bow Andrew, you’re an inspiration to us all…
