Borris – Ileigh Intermediate Camogie team win their first ever County Final

Borris – Ileigh Intermediates made history on Saturday last, and won their first ever County Final at this grade.

The first half commenced with point for point scoring from both teams, but from 20 minutes into the first half, Borris had settled to leave Drom behind, and lead by 4 points at half time.
In the second half, an initial point from free, and a further fantastic goal from Nicole Walsh, saw the team continuing to lead. Drom scored 3 points, but Borris retaliated by scoring four more. A goal from Drom left a 6 point lead for Borris, but a great goal from Deirdre Corcoran, sealed the cup and a County Final win for Borris by 9 points.

Scores from: N Walsh 1-07 (1-04 frees), M Bradshaw 0-01, M Maher 0-03, D Corcoran 1-01, S Kinane 0-01.
