Underage:  We hosted The Tomás Max tournament on Friday the 7th June in the park at 7.30 pm. This is a tournament for our under 10’s.  Visiting teams were Toomevara, St Cronan’s Roscrea and Moycarkey-Borris.  Referees on the evening were Gerry Treacy and Aisling Kiely.  In the first round Borris-Ileigh played Roscrea (last year’s champions) and Toomevara played Moycarkey-Borris.   Then Borris-Ileigh played Moycarkey-Borris while Roscrea played Toomevara.  Moycarkey –Borris were the champions on the evening.  Thanks to everyone who helped out on the evening to make the tournament such a success. All the girls who played received a medal.  A fine spread of food was provided for our visiting teams. Particular thanks to the Max family.  Tomás Max was chairperson of our club at the time of his premature death.  We hold this tournament in memory of his contribution to camogie in Borris-Ileigh; it was fitting to see the trophy go this year to his original club Moycarkey-Borris.

The under 16 panel won’t be playing again until after the junior cert.

Our minor panel continue to train; their first competitive matches won’t be until after the leaving cert.

Intermediate Team:  Training continues and it is hoped to have a challenge match at the weekend.  The club wishes Louise who picked up an injury last weekend a speedy recovery.

The Linda O’Connor memorial tournament went ahead on Saturday the 1st of June at 2.30pm. It was an ideal day for camogie with the weather staying dry and not too hot. The visiting teams were our next door neighbours Drom & Inch and St. Bridget’s from Westmeath, St. Bridget’s is a newly formed club with a Borrisoleigh connection namely Margaret Kirwin.  Unfortunately last year’s winners Harps were unable to attend this year.  The programme of events for the day was each team play each other with the top two teams playing in the final.  Results were first game Borris-Ileigh (3-06) Drom N’Inch (4-07), second game Borris-Ileigh (5-05) St. Bridget’s (0-01), third game Drom N’Inch (0-12) St. Bridget’s (0-00) This lead to a final play off between Borris-Ileigh and Drom N’Inch,  this was a hotly contested final with only a puck of a sliothar between either team throughout the game, with Drom emerging as the victors on the day with the score at full time being Borris-Ileigh (0-04) Drom N’Inch (1-05). John Walsh Chairperson of our club thanked all those involved in organising the tournament and our visiting teams, the O’Connor family and referees.  Vinny O’Connor, Linda’s father, presented the winning team with the shield and their trophies, the referees were also presented with trophies.  The referees on the day John Lillis and Philip Bergin chose the player of the tournament Miriam Champion (Drom N’Inch).   A fine spread of food was provided on the day by our team and committee.  Many of the St. Bridget’s team remained down for the night and a session was had in Stapleton’s Bar with finger food provided.  It was a fine afternoon of good camogie followed by some bonding with the visiting team from Westmeath.  Again thanks to all who helped to make this tournament a success.
