Borrisokane bridged a gap of twenty years when they claimed their eight North Intermediate Football title when overcoming Kildangan in the North Final last Friday night. Borrisokane’s win puts them on top of the role of honour with eight titles, one ahead of Newport and two ahead of Kildangan. With the North silverware safely tucked away Borrisokane will now return to the county championship as they have a semi final contest to negotiate in the coming weeks. Best of luck.
