The Bors got their senior championship campaign underway with victory over St Mary’s in Cloone on Saturday. A first half goal from Mark Mc Closkey proved to be the defining score of the game and with the defence on top of their game in the second half, Bornacoola closed out the game for a 1-9 to 0-9 victory.

The U-14 team have been performing steadily over the past couple of weeks and began their campaign on last Monday week with victory over Aughnasheelin by 4-9 to 1-8. On Friday they played Fenagh and despite missing three regulars, put in a good spirited display before losing on a scoreline of 6-9 to 2-8.
The panel for these games included: Shane Sullivan, Barry Reid, Tony Shanley, Kieran Campbell, Roy Keenan, Mark Muldowney, Kevin Shanley, Anthony Mulligan, John Hackett, Conor Mc Weeney, Conor Hackett, Liam Mulligan, Daniel Farrell and Ian Mulligan.
Our congratulations to former player Joe Devine who was married on Friday last. Joe played for Bornacoola for many years and was a solid performer in defence, spending a few memorable years at full back in particular. Former ladies player Eilish Shanley was also married at the weekend. We wish Joe, Eilish and their respective spouses all the best in their future lives together.
