Borrisoleigh Drama Group
Borrisoleigh Drama Group welcomes you to their 4th production by the group. This year the play chosen is ” The Chastitute” by John B Keane.” The Chastitute” was a word invented by the author to mean ‘ a man without Holy Orders who has never lain down with a woman’. This play will bring tears of laughter but is tinged with sadness too.The principal character, John Bosco (Ollie Delaney) a fifty three year old bachelor living in rural Kerry recounts his lost opportunities to procure a wife, not through lack of effort on his part as he tells us but through forces over which he had no control.His run of failure continues throughout the play despite the efforts of his Aunt Jane (Cristina O’Dwyer), the matchmaker Mickey Molly (PaulBoyle) and the wily and silver tongued Sylvester (Micheal Tierney) along with the local Priest Fr. Kimberley ( Frank Cooney). In the end John Bosco seizes the moment. Sit back and watch the events unfold.
A huge amount of work has gone into this production with a lot of time donated by the large cast, producers and backstage crew. Borrisoleigh Drama Group looks forward to welcoming you on either of the nights, Fri. 15th or Sat. 16th. You are guaranteed a great night’s entertainment and your attendance is greatly appreciated!

Finally, plans are now in place for a number of very interesting lectures and events. On Monday night, April 25th at 8.00pm, John Reynolds will present to us on the Royal Irish Constabulary in Tipperary between 1919 and 1922, with special emphasis on policing in the Borrisoleigh area during that period.
John Reynolds is a serving Garda Sergeant based at the Garda College in Templemore, and founded the Garda College Museum in 2002. John hold a PhD in history from the University of Limerick, and his new book ’46 men dead – the Royal Irish Constabulary in Tipperary, 1919-1922′ will be published by Collins Press in April 2016.
Then on Monday night, May 9th at 8.30pm, we welcome back local man, John Connors, who will present for us his lecture; ‘’Revenge for Dwyer and The Ragg,– related events and the wider story’’.
As April the 24th is the actual anniversary of the Easter Rising, we are going to mark the occasion by a simple tree planting ceremony and the unveiling of a commemorative stone. This will take place after 11.00am Mass at the rear of the church. To this, and to all our events, everyone is welcome.
Thanks to the many people for their generous offers of help regarding our mortuary cards project. Over the coming weeks and months we will be setting about copying as many of these cards as we possibly can and compiling a database of them.

Borrisoleigh Active Social Club
Another successful talk was held by the club last Wed night in the Community Centre. Emer O’Connell from Health and Harmony Thurles came and gave us advice and tips on foods in our diet. She brought samples so we could get a better idea of/identity the food stuffs she was talking about. It’s up to us now to implement the tips.
Emer also brought a lovely hamper which was raffled on the night. Another raffle was done and the prize was to have an allergy test inside at Health and Harmony Thurles. Well done to our prize winners Biddy & Lily.
Thank you very much Emer for your co-operation.
Our next monthly meeting takes place on Wed May 4 and new members are always welcome.
