Halloween Celebrations in Fantane National School
A sample of photos from the Halloween Capers in Scoil Bhríde, Fantane
On Friday last 26th October, the Parent’s Association of St. Theresa’s National School held their Annual Halloween Disco in the Marian Hall for the primary school children of the parish.In excess of 120 children attended on the night and it was obvious a lot of effort had been put into their costumes and make up!! The outfits just get better year on year. Well done kids!!
Pictured here is Paddy Dolan of Mount George with his long-lost sister Kathleen whom he has not seen since he was a boy. Both were separated as children and were never able to resume contact during the intervening years.
Happily, with the help of Barnardos and a lot or research, brother and sister were reunited at Manchester Airport on Friday 24th September last. Paddy and Kathleen are now in regular phone contact and are planning that Kathleen will soon visit Borrisoleigh after her long absence. Good luck to both of them.

Unveiling of the Restored Village Pump
The pump was originally located on Lower Main Street and was removed to prevent further damage from traffic turning onto Main Street from the difficult Templemore Road junction. Some readers may remember gathering at the pump in protest during the late 1970s.
The unveiling of the new look and working pump will take place during day light hours Saturday 27th November [time to be announced], the same day as the Fair of Borrisoleigh commemoration. So why not come plastic bucket in hand to relive those years when the pump was at the centre of village life.
Mizen to Malin
Trevor, Christy and John at Malin Head after completing their epic journey.
On the 9th of Sept 2010 Trevor Groome, John Slattery and Christy Reid set off from Mizen Head on their great tour of Ireland! Their mission, to cycle the length of Ireland in 4 days!! Starting off in Mizen Head Co. Cork, the three cyclists covered thirteen counties, 385 miles at an average speed of 15.6 mph. The trio rolled into Banba’s Crown, Ireland’s most northerly point outside Malin Head, on Sun the 12th of Sept. Weary legs and saddle sore – mission accomplished! Next year ….. the tour de France maybe!!!
The past few weeks have seen a recovery in form for Borrisoleigh AFC. After a bad spell of games where we failed to pick up any points and formed an unfortunate habit ofthrowing away easy points, the last two weekends have seen us pick up six points fromsix heading to the halfway stage of the season.
Sunday 24th of October saw us pick up a win at home to Rearcross. It was a vital match-what pundits would call a six pointer. Played in balmy conditions in Borrisoleigh, it wasn’t long before Borris took the lead with Jimmy Shanahan knocking in from close range to set Borris on their way. Goals followed at either end before Tom Grodski put the home side 3-1 up. However things were about to go somewhat pear shaped. Gaping holes started to appear at the back and it wasn’t long before Rearcross clawed one back. With not much time on the clock, Rearcross pushed for an equaliser and were rewarded when a long range effort found the back of the net. It seemed as if Borris were after throwing away more valuable points-but the story was not to finish as so. A looping pass back from Noel Kent fell kindly in the path of right back John Fogarty. What followed would put Zinedine Zindane’s goal in the 2002 Champions League final to shame. A beautifully struck volley from 30 yards floated over a packer box and dipped into the top corner. No doubt it will be the main contender for goal of the season but will go as one of the finest goals ever scored in the history of the club. What made it all the sweeter, was that on the resumption of play at the tip off the final whistle blew to see a run of four defeats come to an end.
Next up, we face bottom of the table team Thurles Town in the Greyhound Stadium at two o clock on Sunday 7th.
We would also like to express out most sincere thanks to all those who contributed to our church gate collection recently. Your generous support has helped ease the strain of running the club. Again many thanks.
Finally a FIFA tournament will take place in the new community centre on Friday 26th of November. More details will follow in the coming weeks.

Due to the extremely poor turnout for the youth club A.G.M.,the committee have stood down and it is with sincere regret that due to the lack of interest in the youth club it has been disbanded.
T’ai Chi is a way of life that has been practiced by the Chinese for hundreds of years. The slow and fluid movements of Tai Chi require concentration, control, co-ordination and balance. Body posture is central to tai chi practice and the benefits are improved spinal alignment and stress reduction. The practice of shifting your weight, extending your joints, allow for the natural lubricants to flow freely around the joints and strengthen the muscles, tendons and ligaments. This in turn keeps joints healthy and more flexible. The regular practice of tai chi forms is indeed rewarding and can be practiced anywhere without equipment.
Classes commencing in the new community centre in Borrisoleigh on the 4th of November at 7.30p.m. Please contact Mary at 086 8199185 for more information.
