It is that time of the year again and this year the Borrisoleigh Community Development Association plan to produce another annual. We would be very grateful if the clubs/organisations/schools of the community could once again forward us an article and pictures of the activity of your clubs/organisations/schools during the year of 2013. We are also 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.
We aim to launch the annual on the Fair of Borris weekend. To enable us to do this we will need all articles and photos by Friday the 25th October 2013. Can all articles be sent in word if possible with photos as separate attachments to this email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Once again your assistance in the production of the 2013 annual will be appreciated.

The presentation of the total sponsorship raised for Pieta House Roscrea will take place on Saturday week the 19th of October in Stapletons Bar at 9.30pm. We are currently gathering all the sponsorship cards and money and have lodged almost €5000 to date. Please ensure that you bring any outstanding cards and sponsorship to PJ Delaney or Ruairi O’ Connell by this weekend as all money has to be lodged before we finalise the draft payable to Pieta House. If you have any cheques please pass on before this Friday 11th October to ensure that they are cleared by the bank in time for the presentation. Please note that everyone is welcome to attend the presentation night.
Borris-Ileigh GAA Club Notes
U21 Hurling: Training continues for our U21 team who are in a north quarter final. No date has been set for it as of yet but it is thought it won’t be for at least 2-3 weeks.
Quack in The Trap: Unfortunately this fundraiser has had to be put back by a few weeks. We had hoped to have it this weekend put problems with the ordering has meant we had to postpone it. All money given still stands and notification will be given when a new date is set.
Strictly Come Dancing: Anticipation continues to build for our big event in The Ragg on Sunday 27th of October. Training is ongoing for our dancers and preparations are well underway for what will be a great night. Tickets are now on sale and cost just €20.
Camogie: Hard luck to our girls who lost narrowly in the intermediate camogie county final last Sunday. As always they did the parish proud and fought to the very end.
The Gathering: Well done to all those who were involved in The Gathering Festival in the parish this past weekend. It was a great success and much credit is due to its organisers. A special mention to the u15 team of 1963 who were honoured for the 50th anniversary of their win on Sunday afternoon.
Borris-Ileigh Camogie Club
Intermediate Team: Well done to the ladies and their mentors, who gave it their all in the County Championship Final on Sunday unfortunately it was just not meant to be their day. They’ve won every game in the league and championship this year up to this one. We’ve had strong support on the sideline cheering on the team all year, the ladies and club appreciate this. Best of luck to Eire Og Annacarthy in the Munster Championship. Our ladies and mentors can now take a well earned break and look forward now to next year, where I know they will again put heart and soul into every game.
Administration: The club will be holding another clothing collection again on Saturday the 12th October please bear us in mind if doing a clear out. Hard luck to the senior hurling team who lost out to Loughmore after a valiant battle. Camogie club merchandise now available Hoodies, tracksuits, t-shirts, jerseys and raincoats available. See Advertising Section of www.borrisoleigh.ie for pictures. If interested please contact Caroline at 086 1522716. You can also follow us on Facebook.
