Thanks to Brid Cowan for hosting us and also to the Maher Family band for providing music on the night. Tickets are now readily available. We ask people to get their tickets early as demand is very high at the moment.

Lotto- We continue to see a rise in ticket sales week on week. We thank all those who have signed up for tickets and hope to see more. Tickets can be got from players, committee members and other various sellers. Many are signing up for €10 or €20 which would have them in for the draw for five and ten weeks respectively. You can also sign up to play the lotto on the Borrisoleigh website.

Training- has resumed in the park for our senior hurlers in the past week. There is a challenge match planned for Sunday morning, time yet to be confirmed. All support would be most welcome.
