Our minor panel continue to train; their first competitive matches won’t be until after the leaving cert.
Intermediate Team: 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 N’Inch and St. Bridget’s from Westmeath.
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, with Drom being 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.
Vinny O’Conor Linda’s father presented the winning team with the shield and their trophies.
The referees on the day John Lillis and Philip Bergin chose the player of the tournament Miriam Champion.
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.
