Fun Run – St Stephen’s Day

Larry Stapleton, Marie Slattery, Serena Moloney, Ciara Cummins, Paddy Dolan, Paula Stapleton, John Vahey, John Ahearne, Austin Ryan, John Walsh, kneeling Tom Delaney


St Stephens day has come and gone but memories have been made this year and history was created with a new winner in the men’s race with John Vahey taking the honours to huge cheers. On a bright and cheerful day over 400 turned out for the walk, run and cycle with plenty of pram pushers on view. The overall event was what community sport and spirit is all about, with a great turn out from the senior hurlers, camogie girls, cycle club and track attack. The walkers and mothers with small children completed the occasion. The cyclists started at 10am led by PJ Delaney, who is our cycle organiser every year. The walk started at 11am with all roads leading to Rathmoy and back. The run was next at 11.05am, with a stampede up Pallas St and into the park for 3 laps and back to the centre.

The ladies race was won by Ciara Cummins (Athnid,Thurles), whose family support the event every year, she was followed in by Serena Molony and Marie Slattery another 2 great supporters of the run. The men’s title this year was up for grabs, with our unbeaten Michael Kiely out with the flu. Who would take this year’s title? Well after 17 minutes and 37 seconds we had our answer, with John Vahey (Zenga) striding down the hill, with the opposition in his wake. What a race we will have next year with John Vahey and Michael Kiely going head to head. Larry Stapleton and John Ahearne came in second and third. A special mention must be made of our juvenile track attack runner, Tom Delaney who came in fifth. With Toms energy and stamina will he put it up the senior runners next year.


Over the years there have been some great battles between John Cummins and Conor Stakelum. Conor took the honours this year and gave John a wakeup call for next year. Sarah Cowan, home from England put in a great run and Mossy(Tom Ryan Farmer) shook Pallas Street as he came down the hill. Other prize winners were track attackers Paula Stapleton and Austin Ryan. With all the races over, everybody enjoyed refreshments and tea in the Community Centre under the watchful eye of our P.P FR. Hennessy.  A special thanks to everyone who helped on the day and to race director Paddy Dolan, who wishes he was 30 years younger and challenging for honours.


On behalf of the Community Centre, thanks to every one who turned up on the day and looking forward to seeing you all again on the 26/12/2019

Borrisoleigh Festival

St Joseph’s College Notes

School Camogie Title for St Joseph’s

St. Josephs College Borrisoleigh had an emphatic win over Pres. Mitchelstown in the picturesque setting of Kildorrery in the Munster Intermediate camogie final. Borrisoleigh were first out of the traps with a well taken point from Katie Fitzgerald, followed by one each from Caoimhe Carey and Dannielle Ryan. Mitchelstown eventually settled and scored three points without reply. At this stage, fifteen minutes into the game it looked like it was going to be a very tight encounter but Borrisoleigh were dogged in their tackling with Miriam Murphy to the fore in defence, ably assisted by Anna Stapleton and Grainne McLoughlin particularly prominent. Mitchelstown faded dramatically in the last ten minutes of the half after goals from Caoimhe Carey and Miriam Murphy . Aoife Dwyer scored some fabulous points, bringing the half time score  2.8 to -3.  The second half was very drawn out due to numerous injuries on the Mitchelsown team, they were beginning to miss their captain who had fractured her collar bone playing football the previous evening and morale was beginning to dip. Borrisoleigh remained composed and brought the first munster title to the school since the All Ireland Junior success ten years ago.

Team: Laura Young ,  Anna Stapleton, Hazel Reynolds, Grainne Mc Loughlin , Emma Galvin, Miriam Murphy(1-0), Sarah Seymour, Aisling Dywer, Ciara Maher(capt), Katie Fitzgerald(0-1), Aoife Dwyer(0-4), Danielle Ryan(0-2) , Aoife Ryan, Caoimhe Carey(2-3) , Ciara Doolan, Cliona O Connell , Mairead Maher ,Emma Doolan, Anna Grace, Cora Kenny, Jane Delaney, Maria Moroney, Louise McGrath Dunne

Match Report: FBD Insurance County Senior Football Championship – Group 1 Round 3


Moyne Templetuohy     0-14

Arravale Rovers                 2-13

By Mark Dunne PRO

Round 3 of the County Senior Football Championship took place in Clonoulty on Sunday last and pitted us against Arravale Rovers in a winner takes all game to see who advances to this years County Senior Football Quarter Finals.

The game opened at a frantic pace and Moyne Templetuohy found themselves a point to the good thanks to a superb point from Tom Meade of his right. Arravale didn’t take long to settle and found themselves a point up shortly afterwards with a free from James Hogan followed by a fine score from Stephen Spillane. 0-02 to 0-01, when disaster struck for Moyne Templetuohy; a short kick out from Martin Kelly went astray and found its way to the Arravale full forward who made no mistake. 1-02 to 0-01 after 7mins. Game most certainly on. Moyne Templetuohy responded will with a score from Pierce Meade, followed by an Arravale point, 1-03 to 0-02. John Hassett was next to add to the scoreboard with two frees. Then came a crucial play, Jason Bergin won the ball on the Arravale 45, he took on his markers to go one on one with the Arravale goalie only for Thomas Gleeson to pull off a fine save. Moyne Templetuohy were now at the pace of the game and Tom Meade struck a wonder score from his left. Arravale matched this with a score of their own. John Hassett added another to his ticket with a good score from a difficult angle. Arravale finished the half strongest however with three unanswered scores to go in 1-07 to 0-06 up at the break.

Moyne returned to the field knowing that they must up their game if they were to emerge winners. County U20 stars Conor Bowe and Gearoid O’Connor got the first two scores of the half to reduce the gap to two. Arravale responded with three of their own (two from play and one from a free). Moyne Templetuohy pressed hard and were rewarded with a free which John Hassett duly dispatched. Then another goal opportunity for Moyne; a short kick out from the Arravale Rovers goalie found Jason Bergin who was fouled just before he pulled the trigger. John Hassett converted the resulting free. 0-11 to 1-10, two points between the sides. Arravales game plan in the second half saw them work the lines which resulted in the next two scores coming from fisted points. Four between the teams again. John Hassett added the next two to bring the game to two points again, a margin we just couldn’t seem to reduce. Then came the killer blow, Arravale centre forward James Hogan took on the Moyne defence who tried desperately to intercept him, but Hogan had goal on the mind and goal he got. 2-12 to 0-13. Both teams traded scores in the remaining minutes but at the full time whistle it was Moyne Templetuohy 0-14 Arravale Rovers 2-13.

Moyne Templetuohy will be disappointed. This was a game we could have won, and we came close only for a few unforced errors which were duly punished by the Tipp town side. Thossie Hamill, Tom Meade, Tommy Hassett and Jason Bergin all worked hard for the Mid Tipperary side. As a result of today’s loss we now enter a secondary competition with the format as follows: The bottom two teams of each group go into a secondary competition. The losers of the four games (quarter final) here play a game with the losers playing a final game for relegation.

For the moment attention turns back to the small ball with the divisional Semi Final against Drom/Inch on the cards next Sunday at 12noon in Holycross.

Team and scorers: Martin Kelly, Shane Lowe, Pierce Meade (0-01), Chris Lawlor, Louis Everard, Thossie Hamill, Mark Ryan, Jason Bergin, Tomás Hassett (Captain), Tom Meade (0-03), Donnacha Dunne, Gearoid O’Connor (0-01), Diarmuid Fogarty, John Hassett (0-07 frees), Jack Taylor. Subs used: Conor Bowe (0-02) for Jack Taylor, Niall Russell for Donnacha Dunne, David Lowe for Chris Lawlor.

Referee: Derek O’Mahoney (Ardfinnan)
