 Computer Course in Community Centre 

Pictured above are Nora Gubbins (Information Officer North Tipp VEC Adult Guidance Information Service) and Mary Finn (Community Education & Adult Literacy Officer) at The Community Centre on Thursday 11 Nov last.

Registration took place for the beginners course in computer skills. There was a very positive uptake for this course, so much so that an extra class per week had to be put in place to cope with the numbers. 
North Tipp VEC hope to broaden the availability of their courses to the Community Centre in Borrisoleigh. Further information can be had by contacting Nora Gubbins at 067 – 46022.

 National Science Week Table Quiz 

A table quiz for teams from 4th-6th classes from primary schools was held in Thurles Library last week in conjunction with National Science Week. St. Patrick’s BNS was represented by Aaron, John, Aaron and Oisin  for the event. In keeping with the theme of the week at least half of the questions were science-based with the remainder testing the pupils’ general knowledge. Following a keen contest the boys from St. Patrick’s were delighted to emerge in second place, a mere two points behind the eventual winners. Well done boys!

Before making the presentation Ruairi outlined the history of the cycle which is now in its seventh year.

To date over €70,000 has been raised by the people of Borrisoleigh for various deserving causes and the event has gone from strength to strength with this years event being extented to include a 50 mile route. Maria McGrath who is secretary of North Tipperary Hospice said she was delighted that the Hospice had been selected as this years charity and accepting the large sum of money raised assured all that it would be put to very good use. Maria outlined the many services that the Hospice movement provides to all those families that are affected by illness and it was clear to the large crowd present that this years chosen beneficiary was indeed a deserving cause. She also thanked everyone who was involved in anyway through organising or participating in the Cycle. The presentation was followed by music and refreshments and a very enjoyable night was had by all. The organisers would like to thank Brid Cowan and family and staff of Stapleton’s Bar for their hospitality on the night. The organisers would once again like to thank everybody who contributed in any way to this years event ensuring that it was a tremendous success once again.
