Kildangan – Borrisoleigh Match Prediction | 30-09-2019 09:00

Thanks to our registration team who had a very busy night catering for the large numbers but did so in their usual professional fashion. Thanks to Christina ODwyer who was our First-Aid officer on the night and thanks to each member of the Track-Attack committee who worked tirelessly to ensure the smooth running of the event in recent weeks and everyone who contributed in any way. They were helped by Tom Mason and his team of stewards who again deserve great credit for their efforts and continued support for Track-Attack events. A huge thanks to Sergeant Colm OBrien and his team for their work on the night to ensure the safety of all participants.

The 4 remaining losing teams will play off with the two winners making up the last 2 quarter finalists. They will take on Burgess in Round 1 this Friday evening the 4th of May in The Park at 7pm. The format for this years championship is as follows, after all the first round games have been played the 5 winners go through to North Quarter Finals along with 1 of the losers who get a bye to the quarters. Our U21 hurlers will begin their 2018 campaign in the North B Championship. We would like to wish both management and players the best of luck for the year ahead, Lets hope we can have a right crack at retaining the title we previous won in 2015.

It was a tense, physical affair early on with both teams trading blows and scores. Best of luck to Kildangan going forward in the rest of the North Senior Championship. A couple of late scores sealed the win for Kildangan on a score line 3-12 to 1-16. Commiserations to our Senior hurlers as their Hibernian Inn North Senior Hurling Championship campaign came to an end at the hands of Kildangan in Dolla this evening.The game was anenthralling encounter from start to finish with momentum swinging both ways throughout between the beaten county finalists of the last 2 years. A tough loss to take in a game which neither team really deserved to lose, but a loss this group of players will learn from as the year goes on.

The Paddy Dolan Cup heads to the banks of the Shannon for the next 12 months thanks to the efforts of Limerick AC athlete Susan Murnane who cut 5 seconds off the previous course record to record an impressive victory in a time of 5:27. Tom Hennessy followed in Liam Hartys footsteps to get his name etched on the Gerard Ryan Perpetual Cup.

A huge congratulations to Kevin Walsh who is the Last Man Standing having successfully navigated his way through over 130 Premier League results to be crowned a worthy Champion. He takes home the fantastic 300 prize money and more importantly all the bragging rights as well. It all came down to the final game of Round 13, with the 5 other contestants all eliminated from the earlier weekend fixtures it all rested on last nights clash at Goodison Park between Everton and high flying Newcastle United who were looking for their 5th consecutive win after a late season surge from Rafa Benitezs men. After 13 Rounds, some very close calls and a few dodgy predictions we have finally crowned our Borris-Ileigh GAA Premier League Last Man Standing Champion. We would like to thank everyone who took part in our Last Man Standing Competition, we raised some vital funds which went a long way towards financing our wonderful new hurling wall. A home win would see Kevin Walsh take the crown where as a win for the Georgies would see Ciaran Hackett crowned champion. Thanks to Theo Walcotts goal midway through the second half it was a case of so close yet so far for Ciaran Hackett once again after being within a single goal of scooping the prize 3 Rounds previous as Everton ran out 1-0 winners on the night. Without your continued support we would not have the wonderful facilities we have in the Park today. Thank You.
