Track Attack

Record Numbers in Borrisoleigh

The new Track-Attack Alphabet Series is attracting record numbers to the track in Borrisoleigh on Monday nights where the sight of all generations integrated as one is a joy to behold. In round 2 of the Series, proceedings started at 8pm on the button and then 270 participants ran, jogged or walked around their distance of choice with ones of 3km, 4km and 6km available.

In group A, Bobby Gilmartin leads the way with his brother Jack in a very close second.

The first photograph taken anywhere in the world was  in France in 1826. 25 years later Alfred Capel-Cure was stationed at Richmond Barracks, Templemore with the 55th Foot Regiment and had a keen interest in photography. He took many photos of Richmond Barracks and thanks to the research of John Reynolds we can now view these as part of a lecture given by John in the Garda College, Templemore on Friday October 19th at 8pm. All are welcome. Admission is free.

Craft Class/Community Project

The Craft class in Borrisoleigh will be commencing their community project in the park in the coming weeks. 

This will be a mural that will be painted on a sheet of mdf and secured to a section of the wall dividing the park and the parochial property.

It is hoped that it would be a mural of houses, local attractions and maybe some business premises. If any businesses would be interested in making a contribution/ supporting this project it would be greatly appreciated. Materials such as paint and mdf will need to be purchased. Any businesses that support this community project will have their premises represented on the mural.

This is a project being done by the craft class. Anyone that would like to get involved is more than welcome to join us. It is a great opportunity to continue to enhance the great work that is being done by all in the park. 
Any enquiries please phone 0876166225. 
Being done by the community for the community
