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.
