Parish News



October is Safeguarding month in the Archdiocese. The Parish and Diocesan Safeguarding Teams work hard all year to ensure our churches are a safe space for children. We welcome all children and young people to participate fully in the life of the parish, whether it be attendance at Mass and the Sacraments, as Altar Servers, Choir, Children’s Liturgy, Pray and Play, Youth Ministry etc. Feel free to contact the parish office for details. We look forward to seeing you.


The Archdiocese is fully committed to creating and maintaining safe environments within our churches, parishes, and ministry. We have a number of policies and guidance in place to ensure that best practice is maintained through our Ministry with children and vulnerable adults such as Child Safeguarding, Adult Safeguarding, Garda Vetting, Pilgrimage Polices etc. We also have lots of guidance for ministry within the parishes, as well as general advice around Safe Use of Social Media etc. These policies and more can be found on the safeguarding page on the Diocesan website –

Greyhound History

Thurles Greyhound stadium will be hosting their 75th anniversary celebration on Saturday 27th October 2023. This got me thinking about all the wonderful greyhound people and great greyhounds that came from Borrisoleigh over the years.There are so many funny stories and famous victories and lifelong friendships that were built through owning greyhounds and I would love to hear from anyone who has a photo, a story or a memory to share.
I’m interested in all stories and old photos  connected to greyhounds not just the champions.
Hopefully I’ll find out some interesting information put something together to be published on this Borrisoleigh website in a few weeks time.
Thanks very much.
