 Borris-Ileigh GAA Notes 

Senior Hurling: Well done to our senior hurlers who had a hard fought win over Carrick Swans on Saturday afternoon. A full report can be found in the reports section of this website. This win now puts us into a county quarter final where we will play Anacarthy. This game will take place in The Ragg on Sunday at 3pm. We hope to see you there.

A note from the Chairman: With the business end of the championship coming about I would appeal to all those within the parish to come out and support our senior team this Sunday in The Ragg. The effort and commitment being shown by the players and management has been fantastic and it would be only right that they have the full support of the parish. Though there have been disappointing times over the last number of years this group of players never stopped believing and we want you to show your support by getting behind this team as much as possible. I hope to see you all and to hear you shout on your support for our hurlers.

The Quack in The Trap: With just two weeks to go, ducks are selling fast for our novel fundraiser for the new waling track in the park. Ducks can be bought for just €5 and can be purchased off of players and committee members.

Borrisoleigh Gathering Festival updates

The festival team would like to thank everybody who donated paint at the recent paint collection and everybody who has helped out in giving the town a makeover. There is some fantastic painting going on around the town. It is great to see the whole community getting behind the festival and helping out in whatever way they can. Well done to all! Ní neart go cur le chéile

We want the town to have a real festival atmosphere over the course of the weekend. To help us with that we are seeking buntings, flags etc. to hang up around town. If you have any bunting lying around in a shed somewhere we would love if you could dig it out and pass on to any of the festival team.

You can keep up with what’s happening with the festival by joining us on Facebook, Twitter and through the website.
