Masonite Senior Championship
Unfortunately County champions Glencar/Manorhamilton proved too strong for Bornacoola in the replay of the County semi-final on Saturday evening last. Despite a strong opening half hour, the Bors found themselves a point down at half time as the North Leitrim men scored a goal with the last action of the half. A Sean Mc Keon goal offered hope midway through the second half but despite a valiant effort, it was Manorhamilton who finished the stronger and held on for a 1-10 to 1-7 victory. Bornacoola team and scorers: Feargal Mc Gill, Damian Mc Guinness, Morgan Shanley, Jason Conroy, John Mc Guinness, Conor Mc Cauley (0-2), Niall O Connor, Michael Duignan (0-1), Colm Farrell, Sean Mc Keon (1-0), David O Connor (0-1), Mark Mc Closkey (0-3), Brian Conroy, Damian Moran, Philip Howard. Subs used Jonathan Duffy, Feargal Howard, and Trevor Howard
Ladies Junior Final
The Ladies team took on Dromahaire in the County Junior final on Sunday afternoon in Leitrim village. It was their second appearance in a final this year but unfortunately the North Leitrim girls proved too strong and ultimately recorded a comfortable victory. However, it has been a season of progress for the girls under their new management of Vinny Canning and Sean Mc Cauley and they will feel they can have a real cut at Championship glory in 2010.
The team on Sunday was: Michelle Reilly, Sara Duffy, Niamh Reynolds, Cora Mc Cauley, Lisa Geelan, Rachel Duignan, Meave Duffy, Jillian Duignan, Charlotte Faughnan, Leonie Duffy, Joanne Mc Gushin, Alison Mc Keon, Fiona Reilly, Kelly Howard, Nadine Hackett. Subs: Orla Bohan, Michelle O Beirne, Emma Moffatt, Shannon Boyle, Jessica Mc Keon, Lisa Mc Gowan, Orla Mc Weeney, Susan Shanley, Coleen Bohan, Laura Jones, Maria Comiskey, Crona Shanley, Zoe Cosgrove, Tara Hackett, Ciara Hackett.

Junior C Championship
The Junior C team got their championship campaign underway with an excellent 0-13 to 1-9 victory over Eslin in Annaduff on Sunday last. In a game played in beautiful sunshine, an Eslin goal in the second half of a tight game really tested the Bornacoola resolve but a late point from Gerry Gearty was enough to secure a great victory.

We’d like to extend the sympathies of the club to the Canning family (Rinnagowna) on the recent passing of Ambie. Also to the O Gorman family in Carrick on Shannon on the tragic passing of Martin. Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamnacha.
The U-12 team were beaten by Allen Gaels in the Championship on Monday week last.
The lads rounded off their 2009 campaign with a defeat to a stronger Annaduff team in the championship with the highlight of the derby game from a Bornacoola perspective being a fine goal from Daniel Farrell.
