TG4 Research
The following e-mail was received recently. If anyone can offer any information please e-mail Ronan at ronyg@live.com or contact a member of the website committee.

"My name is Ronan Gallagher and I am currently researching a documentary for TG4 on the Irish involvement in the American Civil War. I was wondering if you would have any information on John Hassett Gleason. He came from Borrisoleigh and was a General during the American Civil War.
Any help or advice you could offer would be of great help. I would be particularly interested in anything that would be in Irish. Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.

Annual Charity Cycle

The annual charity cycle takes place next Saturday September 6th. This year’s cycle is in aid of the Renal Support Centre of the Irish Kidney Association – a very worthy cause. Cyclists should gather in the Square at 2pm. The cycle will proceed to Thurles, onto Templemore and home to Borrisoleigh. If you haven’t got your sponsorship card yet or for further information please contact Ruairí O’Connell or PJ Delaney. All are welcome to take part.
