 Borrisoleigh Community Development Association 

We will produce another Annual for 2012 and are getting organised a bit earlier this year. We are seeking interesting articles that relate to Borrisoleigh. They can be present day or relate to the past. It would be great if some photographs accompanied the articles, but we will accept articles without photos. We would also like to hear from people who have left the area, of their memories about Borrisoleigh, or from people who have moved into the area of their experiences in the locality. We would also welcome suggestions that may help us to improve the Annual. Again we would like to ask all the local clubs, organisations, schools etc. to keep us in mind and we will be in contact with you for an article on your activities from 2012 later in the year.

Importantly we would like to thank all those who submitted articles for the Annual at such short notice last year and all the local businesses who have kindly agreed to sell the annuals for us. Without your help the publication would not have been a success.

We look forward to producing our next annual and hope people both at home and away will enjoy it.

Please e-mail articles to borrisoleighannual@gmail.com

The junior team had their first league game of the season on Sunday in the camogie field The Ragg against Fethard. They put on a fine display in all parts of the pitch. It took us two games to defeat Fethard in the championship last year but we managed it in one on Sunday. All of our ladies played well, frustrating the Fethard team from their forwards through to their goalie. Nicole Walsh opened the scoring with a point from a free, followed by a goal and a point from play. Mary Bradshaw then scored a goal from play. Fethard then got two points one from play the other a free. Nicole Walsh then got another point from play leaving the score at half time 2-3 to 0-2. The second half commenced with a goal from Nicole Walsh followed by a goal and two points from Fethard. Nicole Walsh then got another point from play followed by a point from play by Joanne Cowan who came on as a sub, Nicole Walsh finished up the scoring for Borrisoleigh with a point from a free. Fethard finished their scoring with a point from play which left the result at full time 3-6 to 1-5. Well done girls a great start to the competitive season. The next game of the league will see us play away to Drom on Monday the 9th April at 4 pm.

It was a beautiful Spring afternoon on Thursday last when St. Cualans set out on their annual trip to St. Joseph’s Monastery, Roscrea. This is an annual event where the group have the opportunity to receive the sacrament of Penance. We then returned to the Templemore Arms where we were served to a very tasty afternoon tea. Everyone was in great form and were quite willing to participate in the sing song. Our good friend P. J. Ryan was celebrating his birthday and was delighted to blow out the candles on his birthday cake. As you can see from our photos it was a very enjoyable day.
