Charity Walk for Suir Haven Centre
Borrisoleigh Community Games
Borrisoleigh Track-Attack Club NotesGeraldine & Matilda Climb To Summit With just a single round of the Track-Attack Snakes & Ladders Series remaining, it’s impossible to predict as to where both the team and individual honours will eventually end up. In the individual women’s grade, both Geraldine Walsh and Matilda Hayes had lady luck running their way as thanks to them both hitting square 56, the ladder that was dwelling there elevated them both to the lofty placing of square 83. They are been chased down by Jacqueline Minogue who sits on square 64 while the trio of Kathleen Ryan, Aoife O’Meara and Yvonne Hodgins are ready for one final lunge forward as they sit nicely on square 60.

Jim Costigan in action in round 4In the men’s grade, we have a new leader in the form of Ger Ryan who now also sit on square 83 and one more good performance in the final round could well see him kick for home. Kevin Murphy is his closest challenger on square 67. Kevin Delargy has doctored his way to square 60 where he shares digs with Seamus Devaney and Denis O’Connell. We also have new leaders in the underage boy’s grade. Square 83 is pretty congested at present as following some superb performances from the hugely talented duo of Eamon Groome and Tom Delaney, they also have taken out lodgings there for the week as they wait to see where the final performance will decide their final dwelling will be. Patrick Groome has shown fantastic levels of improvement in recent weeks and as a result he has worked his way into third spot overall on square 52, Daniel Hogg sit on 40 while Sean Og Hayes is a further one behind in 39.

Snakes & Ladders Series Leader - Ger RyanTherese Groome has been one of the stars of the entire Series and her impressive showings have seen her hold down the top position in the girl’s grade for another week. Avoiding the snakes in the final week will be her biggest task!! She is 68 squares to the good but hoping to close that gap are Emma Maher and Laura Kennedy who both occupy square 44. Niamh Ryan is next in command on square 35 while both Gabrielle Hodgins and Ella Ryan are placed on square 32. In the team event, both Team Fir and Team Hazel are the joint leaders thanks to a string of impressive performances from their respective team members. Team captain Denis O’Connell and Patrick Groome were the star performers for Team Fir in round 4 while for Team Hazel, Miriam Murphy and Evelyn Groome were their top scorers.

Marie's mother, a founder of Cuman na mBhan in Carlow, was actually on O'Connell St on April 24th and witnessed Patrick Pearse read the proclamation outside the GPO. She also often spoke about seeing Sean MacDiarmada appealing to the looters to disperse and go home.

The future of the Bothy is up to you - we really need volunteersThanks 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 087-2169150 if you've a few hours to spare every week or every other week. Thanks
