Senior Championship

Bets of luck to all concerned.

The Minor team exited the Championship on Friday last when they were well beaten by an Aughawillan/Drumreilly amalgamation. Missing several key players, it was still a very successful year at this grade as the Bors captured the league title earlier in the year.
