Borrisokane Community College School Notes

Senior Hurling

Our Senior Hurling team had a fantastic win on Monday last in the round of 16 knockout game of the Munster Championship. Borrisokane Commmunity College took on Glanmire CC in Lattin GAA in a well fought and entertaining encounter with both sides giving everything on the day. Borrisokane started well with some great scores through Eoin Carroll, Sean McGrath and Joshua Chadwick and along with a strong defensive line led by the captain Ross Austin and Liam O Regan at centre back.  Borrisokane took a commanding lead at half time of 2-10 to 4 points. However, Glanmire came out from half time and struck the first number of scores, making a real game of it although the Borrisokane boys swiftly recovered and fought their way to the end, winning on a score of 5-15 to 2-15. Well done to all involved and onwards and upwards to the Munster Quarter Final.

Tour of Gurteen College

Our TY students travelled to Gurteen College this week and were given an extensive tour of the dairy, beef and sheep rearing facilities by Richard Hamilton.  It was a great opportunity to see what the college has to offer and the work involved in running a farm. Thanks to teachers for traveling with the students.
