Borris-Ileigh Camogie Club Notes

On Saturday next, we will be hosting the Linda O’Connor Memorial 7’s Tournament which is been kindly sponsored by Kelly’s of Fantane. 


Games will begin at 11am and with eight teams competing, it promises to be a cracking day of camogie.


The eight teams are broken into two groups of four with the top two teams in each group qualifying for the semi-finals. 


The groups are as follows:

Group 1 – Borris-Ileigh, Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams, St Brigids, Emeralds/St Annes 


Group 2 – Camross, Windgap, Newport/Ballinahinch, Naas


Hope to see all our underage players, parents and supporters attend on the day and support our team and the event.


Good Week for Under 12s:

It was a good week for our Under 12 teams with both recording double victories. Our White team defeated Boherlahan Dualla and Kilruane MacDonaghs while our Maroon team overcame the challenges of Templemore and Kilruane MacDonaghs.
