Shave or Dye

Borrisoleigh AFC will hold a “Shave or Dye” charity fundraiser on Saturday 19th of March in the Clodagh Bar in aid of the Irish cancer society. Names are being finalised at the moment but expect many heads to take a different shape or colour on the 19th.
Confirmed to be turned into skinheads in aid of the cause include our flame haired keeper Gerry Treacy. The somewhat balding Barry Walsh is also giving up his much valued hair along with Martin Ryan. The fate of Brendan Maher’s hair has gone to a public consultation while our club chairman David Butler has volunteered to a chest wax. Also in line for a leg waxing are David Walsh and Wayne O Mahoney. More names shall be added before the night itself.

We would be very grateful if you come along on the night and support this very worthy cause. Sponsorship cards shall also be doing the rounds for the next two weeks so if you see one try and give a few euro.
