 Fun Day 2009

Borrisoleigh Family Fun Day 2009 in aid of the Borrisoleigh Community Complex

Sunday July 5th saw the young and the old of Borrisoleigh come out for the Borrisoleigh Family Fun Day. This year’s cause was the Borrisoleigh Community Complex. A vintage tractor run got proceedings off to a start at 12 o clock with the bulk of events commencing at two o clock. Such events varied from tractor ballancing to five-a-side soccer to tug-of-war competitions. Somewhat unpredicable weather conditions did little to dampen the spirts of the gathered people with the stand providing ample shelter during one or two of the showers.

A huge thank you must go to all those who donated time, money and effort without whom the day could never have been a success. A special thanks to Keiran Keane who MC’d on the day, to local businesses who sponsored prizes and produce especially Tipperary Spring Water, Ryan Chilling, Hurleys Gala, O’Dwyer and Fitzgeralds Butchers. A big thank you to all those who volunteered on the day and to those who came and supported the event.
