North Tipp Final Winners
Congratulations to the U12A team who won the North Final last Saturday 5th August against Toomevara in Puckaun. Borris-Ileigh had a strong first half and led all the the time with the score at half time 2-4 to 1-1. Toomevara came back stronger in the second half and the sides were level at one stage until Borris-Ileigh pulled ahead again to win the game by 2 points with a scoreline of 2-6 to 2-4. This is the first time in 44 years that Borris-Ileigh have won this title. The County semi final will be played on Saturday 19th August.
Hard luck to the U12D team who lost out narrowly in their North Tipp Final to Toomevara on the same day. Borris-Ileigh didn’t concede any scores in the first half and led at half time by 1-1 to 0-0. Toomevara got an early goal in the second half and won the game by one point in the end. The final scoreline was 1-2 to 1-1.

Borris-Ileigh GAA Club Notes
Commiserations to our Junior ‘A’ team who were beaten by 3 points by Nenagh Eire Og in Round 3 of the North Championship last Friday evening. After going in 3-14 to 1-07 in arrears at half time they produced an inspirational and gallant second half display reducing the deficit to just one point midway through the second half before eventually losing out on a score line of 3-22 to 4-16. Something which can give them great confidence going forward.
A huge congratulations to our U12 ‘A’ team who were crowned North Championship last Saturday afternoon in a thrilling encounter in Puckaun. They emerged victorious on a scoreline of 2-06 to 2-04 over Toomevara. A fantastic achievement by the great group of players, something they can cherish for years to come.
Also commiserations to our U12 ‘D’ team who were beaten in their final on a scoreline of 1-02 to 1-01 by Toomevara in the ‘D’ North Final. A hard defeat to take but they lost nothing in defeat and can be immensely proud of themselves and their achievement.
