Borrisoleigh Tidy Towns

Borrisoleigh Tidy Towns will hold work evenings each Monday evening from 7pm – 9pm. Due to a poor turnout and bad weather conditions last Monday we will again focus on the Ballyroan area and the large flower bed outside the Creamery this Monday May 26th. Could volunteers gather at these areas with gloves, tools etc.
Keep an eye on the website for weekly updates on the different areas we will be tackling.
We are currently getting ready to enter Borrisoleigh in the Tidy Towns / Villages competition for the first time in a number of years so help is needed from everyone to ensure our own areas are in top condition. If everyone does a bit of weeding, cutting grass and painting outside their own homes we should do well in the competition.

Borris-Ileigh GAA News

Over the past 18 months there has been huge developments taking place within Borris-Ileigh GAA Club. This has been part of a long term development we have put in place that will see Borris-Ileigh having the best facilities within the county. We have worked tirelessly over the last year and a half and with your continued help and assistance we will finish out the job that we started.
This development has not come cheap. The purchase of the 8.3 acre field cost €142,000 while the upgrading of the field to a state of the art hurling pitch and building of a floodlit 800 metre walking track has cost another €64,000. This has only been phase 1 of our development. Over the next few years we intend to build a third field on the site of the old soccer field along with the parcel of land behind the boys school, running parallel to the present soccer field. We also intend to almost double the size of the walking track which will run around the perimeter of the entire park leaving us with a floodlit track approximately 1 mile long. Along with this we intend to build a state of the art multi-purpose Sports Complex that will cater for all sports, clubs and anyone within our community that wishes to use it. A new soccer field will also be built on the land directly behind the new stand.
We are not in the business of asking people for handouts or for no return on any money that they can give us. For any money that people contribute they will be receiving something in return. Over the coming week we shall be calling to people’s houses to deliver a Borrisoleigh Town Park Development booklet outlining our plans for the future. We have set out 3 different options from which we hope people will choose one. They include:

Option A) Club Membership: €30
Option B) Club Membership and yearly Club Lottery: €120 (annual saving of €14)
Option C) Club Membership, Club Lottery and Tipperary Draw: €200 (annual saving of €34)

All 3 options are a huge source of vital income to our club. The latter two options also give members a great chance of winning some fantastic prizes. Any fundraisers that we have held so far have always had the emphasis of value for money and we feel this is no different. We are asking all people in the Borrisoleigh area to help us make our community a better place for everyone and to give our children one of the finest places around in which to spend their youth. However it is only with your financial backing that we can turn all of these great plans into reality.

A team of 4 costs just €120.

Tipperary Draw: The Tipperary Draw will be recommencing for 2014 in the coming weeks. If you have not been approached to renew your subscription, please contact TF Stapleton or any committee member.
