Under 16 Hurling
Boherlahan Dualla was the venue for the Mid Tipperary Under 16 B Shield Final on Sunday last. In a very tight competitive game, Moycarkey Borris and Thurles Gaels could not be separated, Moycarkey Borris 2-3 Thurles Gaels 1-6. Both teams are no strangers to each other and have competed against each other since playing at Under 14 level providing close encounters each time.

Daniel Brown opened Moycarkey’s scoring when he pointed a free in the fifth minute. The game ebbed and flowed from end to end until the end of the first quarter when Ben O’Dwyer netted the ball for Moycarkey. Thurles Gaels had yet to find their rhythm but in the twentieth minute Cian Gleeson commenced their scoring with an excellently placed ball in the back of the net. From the resulting puck out, the ball was worked in to John Coffey and he raised Moycarkey’s second green flag. For the final ten minutes both sets of defenders safeguarded their goals and neither team added to their score line before the half time whistle, Moycarkey Borris 2-1 Thurles Gaels 1-0.

Thurles Gaels now had wind assistance for the second half and piled the pressure on to the Moycarkey-Borris defence. While the Gaels were struggling from play, the concession of numerous frees by the Moycarkey gave Chris Munroe of Thurles opportunities from placed balls. Munroe duly obliged, scoring five pointed frees and a ’65 to put his side in to a two point lead heading in to the last five minutes. In the fifty sixth minute, Moycarkey registered their first score of the second half which was a point from play for Shane Bourke. This was closely followed by a pointed free for Moycarkey’s, Daniel Brown to equalise the game. Time ran out for both teams to get the next score so the game finished level. Moycarkey Borris 2-3 Thurles Gaels 1-6.

Moycarkey Borris team – Liam McDonagh; Owen Sheridan, Paudie O’Gorman, Michael Maher; Daniel Brown, Dylan Shaw, Lewis Kearney; Brian O’Callaghan, Bill Hackett; Shane Bourke, Ciaran Kirwan, Ben O’Dwyer; Pat Hackett, John Coffey, Brendan Looby.
Subs used – Tom Maher for Brendan Looby (h/t), Jack Fitzgerald for Ciaran Kirwan (37th minute)

Safetalk Workshop
The Club will run a safeTALK Workshop in November. 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. This workshop is number dependent so please register your interest by contacting either Michelle Donnelly 087 2422774 or Norah Maher 086 2473140. If we do not have the numbers required the workshop cannot go ahead.

Camogie and Ladies Football Club
Liam Britton, Former Chairman RIP

It was with great sadness that we heard of the passing of Liam Britton. Liam was an esteemed member of Moycarkey-Borris Camogie and Ladies Football Club during the mid-70’s and 80’s. A former Chairman of the Club, Liam was also a selector for many teams throughout those years. He was a selector for the 1980 Ladies Football team who won the All Ireland 9-a-side tournament in Dublin. Moycarkey-Borris were the Tipperary representatives and they defeated Cavan in the Final to win the Poitín Still Trophy.

The following year Liam Britton was also a selector for the Moycarkey-Borris Junior team who defeated Cappawhite by thirteen points in the County Junior Camogie Final.

Liam Britton took great pride in supporting the club and its players at club and County level. He travelled far and wide supporting the club and always had a seat free if anyone wanted a lift.

The Club organised a guard of honour for Liam as he entered Moycarkey Church for the final time. Liam will be missed greatly by the club and his friends. Rest in peace.
