Due to the large volume of requests for local Commercial/Business Advertising on the website, we have decided to open a new section entitled Advertising/Diary of Events. All advertising and upcoming events will be included in this section, with a link each week from the Current News page. It will be updated every Wednesday and all items for inclusion should be emailed to info@borrisoleigh.ie by 8pm on Tuesday. We will continue to include advertising for charitable/non-profit making events in the Current News page.

 Hunting Club 

A new hunting club has been set up by a number of local people with an interest in hunting with hounds on foot each Sunday from September through to March. The club is registered and fully insured with the Irish Foot Harriers Association.

The club has enjoyed a number of days of good hunting over the past few months, and is gaining in popularity and support as the season progresses.

Anyone with an interest in hunting, or just likes to be out and about in the surrounding countryside is more than welcome to join at any time.

The above photographs were taken recently while Hunting at Borrisoleigh.
