Borris-Ileigh created history on Saturday by becoming the first club to claim both senior and junior All-Ireland Hurling Sevens titles in the same year.

At Kilmacud, the Tipperary club captured One Direct All-Ireland Senior honours for the sixth time, with a hard earned 10-7 to 5-12 win over county rivals Loughmore-Castleiney.

Also in South Dublin, the Tipp club captured the Volkswagen St Judes All-Ireland Junior Sevens title, with a 3-06 to 2-05 win over Galway’s Abbeyknockmoy.

In the senior Borris-Ileigh led by 5-4 to 2-11 at half-time, thanks to goals from Tipperary Senior player Brendan Maher, who raised the green flag twice, Dan McCormack and former Kildare player Conor Kenny.

Kieran McGrath and Cian Hennessy were among those keeping Loughmore in touch, but Borris-Ileigh hit them hard on the restart.

Inside 90 seconds of the throw-in Kenny and Maher both smashed the ball to the net, to open up an eight point advantage.

Loughmore hit back, with Player of the Tournament Noel McGrath among those on target, but Borris-Ileigh hit three unanswered goals.

Kenny grabbed two of those, while Seamus Bourke was also on target, with Kenny bringing his goal tally to five by the full-time whistle, as his side claimed a 10-point victory.

After the game Borris-Ileigh captain Matt Stapleton received the cup from Martin Skelly of the GAA.

There was further Tipperary joy in St Judes, with Sean Treacy’s capturing All-Ireland Junior Shield honours.

Treacy’s were 3-07 to 1-02 winners over John Mitchels from Lancashire in the decider, having lead by just a goal at half-time. 

Meanwhile, also at Kilmacud Crokes, the host club won the All-Ireland Sevens Under-13 final, with a 4-8 to 0-0 win over Maynooth from Kildare.
