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.

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 photos accompanied the articles but we will accept articles without photos. Plus we would like to get articles 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
