Borrisoleigh Main Street – €400,000

Deputy Michael Lowry has announced that he has secured a once off allocation of €400,000 to resurface the Main Street of Borrisoleigh. The stretch of road involved is from Ileigh crossroad to the Park. The work will involve reshaping, levelling, drainage, new tarmacadam surface and safety markings. Also included is a new footpath at St. Brigid’s Villas and the repair of other footpaths. The work will commence immediately and will take approximately 9 weeks to complete. Deputy Lowry has requested council officals to liase with the local community and in particular the business community to minimise disruption and inconvenience.

Camogie Club Presentation Night

Our Camogie Club outside Sheehan’s Restaurant

Presentation to Paul

Caroline O’Connor makes a presentation to Paul Sheehan of Sheehan’s Restaurant – Official Sponsor of the Borrisoleigh Camogie Club Kit


A presentation evening took place in Sheehan’s Restaurant on Friday 19 Sept. last. This was to mark the generosity of the proprietor Paul Sheehan in sponsoring our fledgling club with a full compliment of Jerseys for the Junior Camogie Panel. Also on the night presentations were made to the selectors, Carmel O’Brien, Jimmy Slattery, Philly Bourke and Pat Kavanagh.

This occasion also marked the end of this season for the Club and was the perfect excuse for a good night out and was also the platform for much needed social bonding. All in sundry then adjourned to Bourke’s Bar after the meal was over and enjoyed music by Tommy Foley and the ‘Back-Liners’! Edel graced us with ‘Grace’ and Paul, in appreciation for the presentation made to him earlier, sang a few songs to the enjoyment of all. The social bonding project worked!!!

The Borrisoleigh under 16 B team took on Lorrha in the North final in Cloughjordan last Saturday. The Lorrha team started strongly with four unanswered points on the board before Borrisoleigh registered their first. A number of vital tactical changes were made in good time and as soon as the Borris men started scoring they kept in touch with Lorrha, heading in at half time only two points down. With all to play for the Borris team came out for the second half and through sheer skill, determination and teamwork emerged victorious with a three point winning margin. Borrisoleigh 1-16; Lorrha 1-13 the final score. Congratulations to the panel and their mentors on this fine victory. Borrisoleigh have some silverware to polish at last! The team is out again on Sunday, 5th October in Templemore at 5p.m. Your support would be appreciated.

Borrisoleigh U12 will take on Burgess in the U12 Hurling Plate on Friday October 3rd at 6pm in Kilcolman. Your support would be appreciated.
