Greetings from Fr. Matt

Olá to all of you in the Borrisoleigh Website team and Easter Greetings from a very warm Brasil !

Hope you are all well. I was transferred to a different parish at the end of January last, and this time they talked me into being Parish Priest again. I had escaped from that job for the past ten or fifteen years ! And now they caught me again.
Am just back after a fabulous Holy Week in the interior of the Parish. I was out on the island of the Canárias with a group of local lay missionaries visiting the homes and celebrating with the people. Its a very sandy island so I had to travel a bit by foot to get to the communities, a good bit by boat and I even got back to ride the horse a few times also…. and finally I even got back to using the Mule and car to get from one place to another…reminding me of the time when I used to take the Milk down to Currabaha and Templederry Creamery.
Had great Holy Week Liturgies with the local people who found it all very interesting that the new PP would leave the parish church on Holy Week to be with them on their Island. It was all a very enjoyable experience. The younger Brasilian confreres who live with me, visited other communities and looked after the parish church..
Look up Ilha das Canárias, Maranhao, Brasil in your computer and you´ll see one of the most beautiful places in the whole of Brasil which is only about two hours by boat frm my present Parish House of Araioses.

All the best to you all from Matt

Our under 12’s had their third blitz of the season on Saturday the 7th April. It was held in the Camogie Grounds the Ragg. The other teams who played were Thurles, Arravale Rovers, St. Mary’s and Gortnahoe. Again they played all the teams and got on very well. Well done to the girls and their coaches.
The second league match of the season was held in the park on Tuesday 10th April at 6.30 pm. Drom was our opposition. It was a very tough game and unfortunately things didn’t go our way three of our players had to be taken off injured. Our total of six points were the result of frees in the first half. There was only three points in the difference at half time but Drom pulled away from us in the second half. The final score was 0-6 to 3-9. We wish our injured players a speedy recovery.
The junior team will be travelling to London this weekend to compete in the London 7’s senior competition at Tir Chonaill Park, Greenford. All the London senior teams will be competing along with LiverpoolUni,Ballinderreen of Galway, St Cronans and ourselves.

Hello from Germany to Borrisoleigh

We hope you will like it.
Best wishes from sunny Germany
