Borrisoleigh Historical Society.
Our new season of lectures gets under way on Monday night, November 14th at 8.00pm in the Community Centre. We welcome back John Reynolds who will present to us on what has become commonly known as; ''The Templemore miracles''.
In August 1920 a series of extraordinary events took place in Templemore when the phenomenon of the ‘Templemore miracles’ or ‘bleeding statues’ took place. The war of independence effectively ceased as thousands of pilgrims visited the area each day. Cures and miracles were claimed and for several weeks it seemed that Templemore would become another Knock or Lourdes. The church and the IRA investigated the miracles, which stopped as quickly as they had begun, and the war resumed with a greater ferocity than before. This lecture will tell the true and extraordinary story of the ‘Templemore miracles’.
John Reynolds is a serving Garda sergeant based at the Garda College in Templemore, where he set up the College museum in 2002. He has a PhD in history from the University of Limerick and is the author of ’46 men dead, the Royal Irish Constabulary in Tipperary, 1919-21, published by Collins Press.

Christmas Shoebox AppealIts that time of year again when we start thinking about what will bring huge smiles to our children's faces on Christmas morning. But what if we couldn't fulfill their dreams on Christmas morning. This is the case for many parents in poor countries. SO, why not help them out. All you have to do is find a shoe box, wrap it in colourful paper & fill it with gifts. I've attached a list of suggestions for you. PLEASE help put a smile on children's little faces this Christmas. Leaflets can be got from & boxes dropped to Fiona at Fifi's Tots Preschool, Ileigh Road or call 087-2169150.
