Borrisoleigh Active and Social Club notes


On Sunday 16th October a group of 39 travelled to Mayo for a 3-night break, stopping on route at the Galway Plaza for refreshments. We arrived at our destination, the Breaffy House & Spa Resort, in Castlebar, a renowned 4 Star Hotel set on 100 acres of beautifully manicured grounds & woodlands in the early afternoon, allowing our party time to enjoy the facilities before regrouping for a beautiful 3 course dinner followed by a very enjoyable ‘sing-song’. On Monday after a delicious breakfast, we headed for Achill Island where we were blessed with beautiful sunshine, good company & amazing scenery, it was a wonderful experience & thoroughly enjoyed. Again, we regrouped for dinner & entertainment in the bar. On Tuesday morning we visited Turlough House & the National Museum of Ireland, which was extremely interesting, it housed many rare archives, photography & films that explored Irelands rural past which many of us could relate to from our childhood days. We proceeded into the bustling town of Westport for a very enjoyable afternoon of shopping & sight-seeing, again we retired to Breaffy House for dinner & a great nights entertainment where we enjoyed more fun & games! (enough said!!) On Wednesday morning we sadly departed Breaffy House & headed for the beautiful village of Knock where we spent a few glorious hours in the peaceful village where Our Lady appeared.  In the afternoon we proceeded down south with a welcome stop at Bunratty on route. This trip was an excellent opportunity for our members to get together & make new friends, it was a very enjoyable few days & we were blessed with the weather. There has been excellent feedback & we are looking forward to the next trip already. We thank Borrisoleigh Bottling Ltd for providing bottles of water for the journey, it was very much appreciated.

Reminder: our next meeting will take place on Wednesday 2nd November at 7pm in the parish centre where we will be planning our Christmas shopping trip, a show at Bru Boru & the Christmas Panto at Limerick University Concert Hall.  


New members are always welcome!

Culture of Enterprise continues at St. Joseph’s College Borrisoleigh.

Preparations are well underway for 1st, 2nd and TY Business Students in St. Joseph’s College for participation in the Annual Student Enterprise Programme. This national competition gives students an opportunity to plan and develop a Business from initial stages of Idea generation and concept development right through to full scale launch. The Annual Christmas Market which is scheduled for 16th of December provides students with an opportunity to sell their produce, make a profit and hopefully be selected to represent the school at County Final level of the competition.  Judges from Industry, Mr. Colm Banaghan, Banaghan & Co. Nenagh and the Services sector, Mr. Alan Darcy from Darcy Cleary Insurance along with Tina Mulhearne Student Enterprise Officer for Tipperary  and John Walsh, Chairperson, Board of Management will be in attendance on the day and will have the difficult task of  judging what Businesses will go forward to the County Final. The success rate of students from St. Joseph’s at County Final level has been commendable over the years and we are hoping that 2022 2023 will be no different.
