 Scór na bPáistí North Final

The hot shots with all the answers!

Borrisoleigh were well represented in the North final held in Portroe on Friday the 19th of March. A very high standard was on stage on the night and each Borrisoleigh group performed up to that standard. Well done to all who took part on the night in recitiation, ballad group, question time, novelty act, and set. Every good wish to Orla Ryan in the Recitiation and to Declan O’Connell, Orla Ryan and Eoin Stapleton in the Question time in the County Final which takes place in Halla na Féile in Cashel on Sunday next the 28th of March at 7.00p.m. Why not come along and support our local youngsters in the county final. Go n-éirí an t-adh libh.

Pictured above is Enda Ryan of Coohaun accepting a cheque for €1850 from representatives of the Two-Mile Borris Crib Committee towards his trip to Haiti with the Haven Foundation. On 27th February the Committee ran a Table Quiz in Corcoran’s Pub, Two-Mile Borris to raise money for Haiti. They heard about Enda’s plan to go to Haiti in April with the Haven House Building Project and decided to donate the proceeds to this worthy cause. Enda met with members of the Committee on 23rd March to accept the donation.

The other members of the Committee along with Seamus Maher and Donnacha Commins (pictured above) are Sean & Bridie Hayes, Jim & Josephine Martin, Eddie & Anne Spillane, John Cantwell and Gerry Carroll. Enda would like to thank them and the people of Two-Mile Borris for their generous donation.
