We made the long trip to Melvin Gaels on Saturday night last. Minus a number of regulars, an early injury which forced the withdrawal of Michael Duignan left the Bors with an uphill struggle. Trailing by 9 points at half time, Bornacoola made a brave attempt to get back into the game but despite creating a number of goal chances, were unable to raise the green flag that might have turned the game in their favour. Two goals for the Gaels in the closing minutes ensured what was ultimately a deserved victory for the Kinlough club. Our thanks to Melvin Gaels for their hospitality after the game.

The Junior A team were in action in Dromod on Sunday morning last when they met a very strong Ballinaglera outfit. Enjoying an exceptional first half, the Bors went to the dressing room two points to the good. However, with nine of the team having played in Kinlough in very warm conditions the previous evening, the Bors visibly tired in the second half as Glera began to find their accuracy and a string of well taken scores ensured a comfortable 0-14 to 0-6 victory for the visitors.
Bornacoola team was: Feargal Mc Gill, Sean Ryan, Seamus Mallon, Brendan Duignan, Damian Mc Guinness, Shane Conroy, Mervyn Howard, Feargal Howard, Damian Moran, Jonathan Duffy, Declan Shanley, Aidan Reilly, Ollie Vaughan, Brian Conroy and Brian Reilly. Subs used: John Bohan, Alan Croghan.
The U-14 team suffered defeat against Gortletteragh last week. However, it was a most encouraging performance and the very positive onfield attitude of the players was most notable. The panel on duty included Shane Sullivan Ciaran Campbell, Dillon Hackett, Fergal Hackett, Robert O’Beirne, Kevin Shanley, Liam Mulligan, Karl Mallon, Gearoid Mulligan, Ronan Mulligan, Brian Duffy, Liam Jones, Patrick Kozack, Kevin Mulligan
I’m told that tickets for the Club’s upcoming fundraising draw are beginning to sell like hot cakes. They are available from all members of the club and of course the finance generated will ensure the upkeep of our facilities in Dromod for the benefit of all in the parish. Priced at €20 each, there are a range of excellent prizes on offer including: 1st €3000, 2nd €1500 voucher sponsored by Sean and Deidre Farrell “Flair”, 3rd Two All Ireland Football tickets, 4th Two All Ireland Hurling tickets, 5th Dinner for 4 in Flynn’s Shannon Key West hotel, 6th Dinner for four in the Copper still, Dromod plus five more prizes of €100 each. We would ask every club member to put in a special effort to make this venture a success.
The Ladies were due to play Ballinamore last weekend, but that game was cancelled. On Bank Holiday Monday they played a very mobile Dromahaire team in Dromod and it was the North Leitrim girls who emerged victorious. The girls will more than likely be in action this weekend – check fixtures sections of the local papers for information.
All Ireland Success
We were delighted to be the first to extend a congratulatory Céad Míle Fáilte to the Sean O Heslins Novelty Act that won the Scór All Ireland title in Killarney at the weekend. The victorious troupe were welcomed at Cloonturk by a large contingent of Bors and well wishers from across Leitrim. Comhghairdeas ó chroí ó gach duine i mBarr na Cúille.
Our third team play Dromahaire in Division 4 this weekend. Please check with management for time and venue details.
