Borrisoleigh Historical Society
The newly formed Borrisoleigh Historical Society would like to thank all who supported our Historical Walk of Borrisoleigh during the "Gathering"..It was a very enjoyable occasion. We then welcomed Mr. John Flannery, Ormond Historical Society Nenagh who delivered the inaugural lecture of the Society on Corporal Lewis Ryan who was born in Coarsepark, Borrisoleigh in 1892. Our second lecture was delivered by Mr. Sean Hogan, Author of "Black & Tans in North Tipperary". Both lectures were outstanding and we sincerely thank both gentlemen. We also thank everyone who supported the lectures and who helped us in any way since we commenced. Looking forward to more exciting lectures and field trips in 2014. New members are always welcome. Very happy Christmas to all.

The Family Giving Tree is now a well-established feature in our Parish in the lead up to Christmas. It offers people the opportunity of giving with a difference. Families or individuals can purchase a Trócaire life changing gift which will benefit the poor of the developing world. We live in recessionary times, of that there is no doubt, but our Family Giving Tree is just an option that you might like to consider in the run up to Christmas.
the gift of chicks to a family in Kenya (€7);
the gift of a birth cert to children in Somalia (€15);
the gift of school support to a child in Guatemala/Honduras (€30);
the gift of goats to help a family rebuild their lives in DRC (€50);
the gift of legal aid in Guatemala (€65);
the gift of help for grandparents in Kenya/Ethiopia (€85);
the gift of safe motherhood in Somalia and Guatemala (€100);
the gift of water worldwide (€150);
