Under 13 Hurling
Congratulations to Moycarkey Borris Under 13 team who overcame Gortnahoe Glengoole in the Under 13 Group 2 Shield Final on Saturday last.

Safetalk Workshop
The Club will run a safeTALK Workshop on Saturday, November 26th in Muintir na Tire Hall. This is a half day training programme that prepares participants to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. These specific skills are called suicide alertness and are taught with the expectation that the person learning them will use them to help reduce suicide risk in their communities. Anyone interested please contact either Michelle Donnelly 087 2422774 or Norah Maher 086 2473140.

Sean Barry RIP
It is with regret that we inform you of the passing of Sean Barry, Vice President of Moycarkey Borris GAA Club. Sean figured prominently with the club in both hurling and football and won a county junior hurling medal in the red and yellow singlet in 1954.

He also played senior with the club in subsequent years at a time when Thurles Sarsfields dominated the Mid Tipp scene. Having finished playing he became actively involved in the administration side of things and at different times served as secretary and treasurer of the club. When Moycarkey-Borris captured the Dan Breen Cup in 1982, Sean was a selector. Sean was again involved in the same role when they captured the title in 1984 and was the only mentor involved in both victories.

Sean’s service to the GAA was honoured in 2010 when he received a Laochra Sean Gael award.
May he rest in peace.
