After School Study

An After School Study Programme, in the Community Centre, will begin in the next number of weeks.  It will begin on Monday September 19th and it is aimed specifically at secondary students.  It is envisaged that this programme will have many benefits for those students that take part.

  • An ideal work environment, in close proximity to the school and the town square. Students will benefit from the ideal school atmosphere but will be removed from the physical school space thus making their study session feel like a ‘fresh start’ after school.
  • It will be an ideal opportunity to complete homework or to study for exams in a quiet, studious and disruption-free atmosphere.  In such an atmosphere, a student can feel more confident in reaching their full potential.
  • Regular contact with parents will always be available as will study tips and extra help with various subject areas.
  • While the co-ordinator will maintain a relaxed atmosphere where students can work at their own pace and with their own methods, discipline will be strictly monitored for the greater good of all.

This programme will be available to students from Borrisoleigh and all local areas.
The fee will be €25 per week or €7 per day.  This will allow students to be more flexible in how often they use the service.  Alternative rates may be available from the co-ordinator.

The service will take place weekly, from Monday to Thursday.
To book a place or for further information, contact Jody @ 086-3976552.

The Fit4Life group meets every Tuesday night at 8pm in Templemore Athletic Track.  All levels of fitness are catered for from walkers to serious runners.  New members welcome.

Borris-Ileigh Juvenile GAA Club

U13 Plate: We lost to Borrisokane last week and play Kildangan this Wednesday in Puckane.

U14 North C/ship semi final:  A workmanlike display saw us beat off the challenge of Shannon Rovers in Dolla on Tuesday 30th of August to qualify for the North Final.  A very good first half effort from the team laid the foundations for a good win against a team who had beaten us in the early rounds of the championship.  We now play Borrisokane in the Final next Tuesday 6th of September in Cloughjordan at 6.15pm.  Please come and support the team as they try to retain the U14 North title won last year

Well done to Eoin Stapleton and Danny Ryan who played for Tipperary U14s and U15s respectively in last weekend’s intercounty tournaments in Waterford.and Cork

Best wishes to Paddy Stapleton and Brendan Maher and the Tipperary seniors in their bid for 2 in a row against Kilkenny next Sunday in Croke Park



On Friday 26th last the home of John and Mary Ryan, Currabaha was broken into.  Thieves entered via the front door.  Their home is situated on the right of the road from Currabaha Cross to Templederry Village.  The burglary occurred between midday and 1:10pm.  It would be deeply appreciated if anybody travelling that road around that time and in the earlier hours of Friday morning could think back on their journey.  Perhaps somebody saw something earlier in the day that did not seem significant then, but could be of huge assistance now.  Gardai are investigating and would appreciate any assistance from people who may have been on that road on the morning of Friday 26th.
