Borris-Ileigh GAA Notes

Development: As some may have seen, machinery has moved into the park in recent days. This is the start of the development of our new field and will be ongoing over the coming weeks. The first sod was officially turned today and pictures below show some of the work being carried out. The initial phase will see the removal of both ditches in the new field, grading of the bank and development of the field. This is an exciting new phase for the club and we hope everybody gets behind it and helps support it when called upon. This will be a project that will benefit everybody in the community and will stand for generations. We also ask that parents be vigilant of children in the park over the coming weeks as there will be an amount of heavy machinery operating in the vicinity.

Lotto: Our club lotto continues to grow and now stands at €12000. Tickets can be purchased locally and online and cost just €2. It is a vital time for club finances as major development is taking place and we encourage people to play as often as possible and to try and get new people to play evey week.
Online: Hits continue to rise for our new website www.borris-ileighgaa.com Check it out every Tuesday night for all the new news and match reports. You can also follow us on twitter at @Borris_GAA or find us on Facebook
