Borris-Ileigh GAA Notes

Quack in The Trap: Unfortunately our fundraiser planned for New Years Day has had to be cancelled due to a fallen tree across the river. We hope to run it again in the coming weeks.

2013: We would like to take this time to offer our sincere thanks to everybody who helped make 2013 a great year both on and off the field. There has been much progress made and it would not have been possible only for the countless people who serve the club with such passion and devotion. We hope it continues into 2014 and that it will be a great year for all the people in the community
