Halloween Disco

Bat Workshop

On Wednesday October 23rd Albert Nolan will be providing free biodiversity training on bats starting at 7pm. This will be held in Borrisoleigh Community Centre. Training will involve a short indoor presentation on bats in the community, training on how to use bat detectors followed by a bat walk to record any species present in the village using the bat detectors. This is a fun and educational walk and helps raise awareness around these misunderstood creatures. This event is being facilitated by the Borrisoleigh Community Development Association.


AXA Community Bike Ride

Huge thanks to all the cyclists who turned out on Sunday for both cycles. We had the sun shining on us again and great chat all the way to Loughmore Tea Rooms. Thanks again for the hospitality. We headed home as some were heading to Semple Stadium. Congrats to the hurlers and good luck in the final.

Next weekend we have the challenging cycle on Saturday at 10 o’ clock and the easy going cycle on Sunday at 10 o’ clock. Check the AXA Community Bike Ride website. Click here and make sure you register for the cycle of your choice.

Thought for the Week

Thanks-a word that brings us alive, for what once was can always give life.

Thanks-a word that keeps us humble, for we know that we depend on others.

Thanks-a word that keeps us joyful, for we know that in every day

there are meetings and the memories, the help and the support given and received,

which are the seeds of life and of growth.

May we be people who are truly grateful, to others and to God

for what makes life worthwhile.


Remember this day

Remember last week,

Remember all times,

And be grateful! –Donal Neary SJ
