 WE REALLY NEED VOLUNTEERS 
Thanks to everyone who have volunteered a few hours of their time to keep our community tearooms open. Your support is really appreciated. Thanks also to everyone who pops in for cuppa and something to eat. Without you we couldn't stay open.
However, we still need a few more volunteers. Wouldn't it be great if our tearoom was open everyday for people to call in or to meet up with friends.............
Give Fiona a call on 0872169150 if you've a few hours to spare every week or every other week. Thanks

Borris-Ileigh GAA Club Notes

Borris-Ileigh GAA crest
Senior: Our senior hurling game against the Silvermines has now been moved forward. We will now open our North Championship campaign on Saturday evening 28th of May at 7.30pm in Nenagh. If we win this we will be in a quater final. A loss will see us end our interest in the competition. We hope to see you there
Tipp Draw: Names are now being taken for this year's Tipperary Draw. This is a fantastic competition with a massive prize fund. It costs just ten euro per month and is a vital fundraiser for both club and county. Names can be given to TF Stapleton, Joe Kennedy or any committee member
 
Golf Classic: A big thank you to all those who took part in our Golf Classic at the weekend. A lot of work has gone into the weekend and great credit must be given to Martin Fahy and his committee for undertaking this valuable fundraiser. It is now in its 4th year and we look forward to another great year in 2017. Congratulations to Teddy Kennedy and his team who won the competition.
