Leaving Cert Smiles!
Mossy, Cathal, Lorcan, Niall, John, Rody and Maria celebrating their leaving cert results this morning. Congratulations to all who received such outstanding results and best wishes for the future ahead.
Greetings from Down Under!!!
Paul Treacy, originally from Kilfithmone pictured here on a recent visit to Daylesford, Victoria, Australia. Tipp Srring Water here before the Borris version!
Paul tells us that a fella called John Egan from Borrisoleigh was the first man to discover gold in this area and obviously became quite wealthy. He settled here and donated a plot of land for a church and graveyard to the local community. Paul has promised us more photos of the church and graveyard which are located in a townsland called Eganstown. Interestingly enough the following was received last week from Austin Ryan.
"Someone mentioned to me that a John Egan of Borrisoleigh had struck gold in Australia in the 19th Century and there was a small hamlet in Victoria named after him. I found the following which may be of interest to you."
