Laochra Ghael Award
Congratulations to Frank Gooney, Moycarkey Borris on receiving a Laochra Gael award. There is no doubt but Frank is a deserving recipient having given a lifetime of service in a variety of roles to the GAA at all levels. He was a committee member of both the Moycarkey Borris GAA Club and the Moycarkey A.C. for many years and he is currently President of the juvenile club. It was in the underage section that Frank made a big impact. He trained many juvenile teams to Mid and County successes. All young boys under his care will have memories of his dedication and the refreshments provided at the conclusion of games. He also made a huge contribution in preparing minor teams in the club. Frank was also a wonderful community man and his family were never found wanting when the good of the parish was at stake. Frank has travelled far and near over the years following our Gaelic Games for many of them in the company of his friend the late Dan Shaw. This wonderful Gael and loyal supporter of Scór is indeed a worthy recipient of the Laochra Gael award.

Under 21 Hurling
On a crisp autumnal Sunday morning Moycarkey Borris took on Holycross Ballycahill in the Donal and Rose Younge Mid Tipperary Under 21 A Hurling Semi Final in Boherlahan. It was an Anthony McKelvey point from a free that opened the scoring and it was soon followed by a Holycross point. After five minutes it was 0-3 to 0-2 in favour of Moycarkey and it looked like Moycarkey could kick on and keep the lead. After an eleven minute scoring drought for the Moycarkey Borris team, Mattie Ryan scored a point from play and left the score line with Moycarkey still leading by a point. Moycarkey continued to keep on top of play but multiple miss-hit balls into the forward line meant the score board read Moycarkey Borris 0-6 Holycross Ballycahill 0-7 at the break.

Coming out at half time it was important that Moycarkey got the opening scores and kept the pressure on the Holycross team in order to stay in the game. Anthony McKelvey opened the scoring again in the second half after three Moycarkey wides in three minutes. Seven minutes into the half and Anthony McKelvey took on the goalkeeper and struck for a great goal which gave Moycarkey a three point lead. Holycross responded appropriately by scoring the next four points and kept the scoreboard ticking over while it took the Moycarkey team eleven minutes to get their next score. Going into the final quarter the sides were level but Holycross were definitely the more dominant side. Ìn the last fifteen minutes, Moycarkey scored two points to Holycross Ballycahill’s 1-10 and Holycross's last minute goal was a long time coming and sealed the win for them.

Moycarkey’s scoring droughts and missed placed balls made the game very difficult for them to win. While Niall Heffernan was a loss the Holycross Ballycahill team responded to Anthony McKelvey’s goal and built momentum which secured their win.

Moycarkey Borris team – David Ryan; Mikey Bergin, Aidan Maher, Patrick Whelan; Eric Fanning (0-1), Chris McCullagh, Kevin O’Regan; Eoghan Hayes, Tom Hayes; Kieran Cummins (0-1), Joe Doran, Mattie Ryan (0-1); JJ Darmody, Rory O’Regan, Anthony McKelvey (1-7, 0-5 frees).

Under 21 Hurling
Moycarkey Borris Under 21 team secured their place in the Donal and Rose Younge Mid Tipperary Under 21 A Hurling Semi Final following a comprehensive victory over Upperchurch Drombane on a score line Moycarkey Borris 5-9 Upperchurch Drombane 1-10.

Upperchurch Drombane opened the scoring with a pointed free by Loughlin Ryan in the second minute. This was quickly followed by a point from Paul Shanahan in the third and another pointed free from Loughlin Ryan in the eighth minute. Upperchurch Drombane were dominating the game for the first twelve minutes but a pointed free by Anthony McKelvey woke Moycarkey up. As the game entered the start of the second quarter Moycarkey’s Anthony McKelvey netted the ball, courtesy of a penalty received. Moycarkey now led by a point and battled hard to add to it. Points from Anthony McKelvey in the twenty first and twenty second minute cushioned this. In the following minutes points were traded by Mattie Ryan and Robert Murphy and blood substitute Joey Doran put his name on the score sheet with a point in the twenty sixth minute. In the twenty eighth Loughlin Ryan raised the flag for Upperchurch and reduced the margin to a single point. JJ Darmody registered the last score of the first half when he goaled for Moycarkey in the last minute to allow Moycarkey in at half time, Moycarkey Borris 2-5 Upperchurch Drombane 1-4.

It was all to play for in the second half and again Upperchurch’s Loughlin Ryan opened the scoring with a point from a sideline ball. Anthony McKelvey nullified this when he pointed a free in the thirty seventh minute. Ronan Gleeson added a point to Upperchurch’s scoreline. In the next ten minutes Kieran Cummins and Rory O’Regan traded points with Loughlin Ryan and Niall Grant. As the game entered the final ten minutes the three point margin remained until in the fiftieth minute Eric Fanning’s sideline ball was directed straight to JJ Darmody who successfully placed it in the back of the net for Moycarkey’s third goal. From the puck out Moycarkey worked the ball back to Rory O’Regan who passed the ball to a free Anthony McKelvey. Anthony hit the ball and it looked as if it was going to drop short but there was enough in it to go over the head of Eanna Ryan and land in the back of the net. The margin was now stretched to nine points. Upperchurch added a further two points to their score line but Moycarkey managed a point from Rory O’Regan and Anthony McKelvey’s final addition to the score line was a goal just the final whistle. Moycarkey Borris 5-9 Upperchurch Drombane 1-10
