Borrisokane Community College put their Munster Schools Cup final loss earlier in the year behind them by retaining the North Munster Schools Cup title last Thursday. 

A goal in either half from Neil Connolly and Mark Carey along with an inspired display from Eoghan Tinkler between the sticks was enough for Borrisokane to claim the win against their Limerick opponents. 

St Clement's put in a stubborn performance it must be said, and despite having to play with ten men for the whole second half, with Alex Kiely making way for a second bookable offence just before half time, they asked a lot of questions of the Tipp school and only for some excellent defending and goalkeeping from Eoghan Tinkler, the result could have been different.

But Borrisokane won’t care about that now as they produced another spirited display and undoubtedly applied a lot of the lessons learned in the Munster final loss against Carrigaline back in March, building their game on defensive solidity and good set pieces, with both goals coming from long balls.
