Jimmy and Bridie Slattery of Pallas Street were seen out and about for a little stroll recently. Reports are coming in that the happy couple hold hands while pacing the lanes around Pallas Street but these are, as yet, unconfirmed!!!

Happy Birthday Tom!
A surprise 50th birthday party for Tom Mason of Mount George took place last Saturday night at Stapleton’s Bar on Main Street. This was a ‘secret’ that was very well kept, even more so, because Tom and Phil’s son Paul who has been in Perth Australia for the last few years made a surprise appearance at the party much to the excitement of the Mason family. Phil orchestrated the return of the ‘prodigal son’ for the occasion and never even hinted that it was going to happen.
Tom was surrounded by family and friends for the celebration of his big FIVE-O! But after the shock of the surprise party and Paul’s return he nearly looks ready for the next big one – the big SIX-O!!!

Several swimming pools open-up on the Ileigh Road! Looking into the situation!
Pictured recently on Ileigh road were Jim O’Sullivan, Councilor Pauline Coonan, Austin Kelly, Fiona Max and County Council engineer Peter Fee viewing the state of the road and potholes with depth of up to 6 inches. Mr. Fee said they were some of the worst potholes he had ever seen and that a plan to rectify the problem would have to be put in place. This has been welcomed by local residents and Councilor Coonan.

Tis a fairly big one right enough!
Borris-Ileigh Juvenile GAA Club
Our Juvenile Hurlers captained by Liam Ryan
Last week, at all age groups, was a busy week for matches. Our U8s hosted both Kilruane and Upperchurch while our U10s took part in the County Board organised Blitz in Toomevara. These U10 blitz games are continuing over the next two Saturdays. With the U12 and U14 hurling championship fast approaching, the U12s continued their preparation with challenge games last week against Templetuohy and Toomevara. Our thanks to all Clubs for hosting those games. With the commencement of the hurling championship coming closer, it is very important that all players attend training and challenge matches. Reminders of training and games generally issue by text. However, if in doubt contact the manager of the team who will have the correct details.
Our juvenile hurlers took part in the Martin Cunningham Tournament in Roscrea last Sunday morning where we played Roscrea and Kilruane. Despite a good display against Roscrea where we played some good hurling we lost that game. However, this meant that we qualified for the Plate Final against Kilruane where we came out on top by 1-4 to 0-2. The shield trophy was presented to Liam Ryan Captain of the team. Well done to the manager, selectors and players.
