 Setting off!
Walkers heading off from Templederry on a lovely sunny day on June 6th last

This year’s Mission Walk in aid of Fr. Matt Ryan’s mission in Brazil took place on Sunday last, June 6th. It was a most enjoyable and successful walk in glorious sunshine and up to 200 people took part. To date almost €6,000 has been collected. Fr. Matt is absolutely delighted and grateful to everyone who walked, who supported it financially and who helped out in any way. He said he will see to it that the money raised will be used in the best possible way out there. If anyone would still like to make a donation they can do so by contacting Marian Harrington, Templederry Tel. 0504-52020 – the fund will remain open until the 30th June. Again a sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone for their generosity.

Borrisoleigh AFC

The AGM of Borrisoleigh AFC recently took place recently in the Pavillion.  A healthy crowd arrived to hear the progress of the last 12 months and to hear of the plans for the coming year.  Top of the agenda was the team performance over the course of the season and what areas could be improved.  It was also decided to embark on a player recruitment drive as a number of our players have been forced to emigrate.  Anyone wishing to play for the club should contact one of the committee members.

Also after a number of years without a youth team the club has decided to enter a team for the coming season in the North Tipp Youths League.  The Youths team is under 18 and a half so anyone who is interested in joining is again asked to contact one of the committee members.

The following were elected as officers to the club:

David Butler, Mount George – Chairman
Gerry Treacy, Knockbrack – Secretary
Barry Walsh, Pallas Street – Treasurer
Martin Ryan, Glebe House – PRO

Finally the club intends to hold a fundraising night on Saturday 24th of July in The Clodagh Bar – more details in the coming weeks.
