Change in Mass times

Saturday 7pm in Borrisoleigh
Sunday 11am in Illeigh.
The Priests of our group of parishes will rotate on the third weekend of every month beginning in March.. So for example on March 18th/19th Fr. Hennessy will celebrate the weekend Masses in Drom/Inch parish and Fr. Hayes P.P. Templemore will celebrate the weekend Masses here in this parish.

On Friday the 24th of February, the Scór na bPaistí North Final took place in Portroe. It was great to see Scór back in full swing after covid. Borrisoleigh were represented in seven categories. We performed extremely well in all and we were thrilled to come first in 4 of the categories. These 4 are: figure dancing, solo song, novelty act and set dancing. We came 2nd out of 8 teams in the quiz and were unlucky not to progress to the finals in that. Our Ballad group and Instrumental group were pitch perfect in categories of a very high standard. 

We are delighted to be well represented in The County Final which will take place on March 12th in Cashel.
