World Champion!

Congratulations to Keelan Chute who has won the Irish Dancing World Championship for a second year in a row! A fantastic achievement and a testament to all his hard work and dedication.


To mark the occasion of our local postmistress Mary Costello’s retirement after many years of stellar service to the community, a presentation was made to Mary in recognition of her contribution to the locality. The event was held after a Mass of thanksgiving in Sacred Heart Church on Saturday 23rd March followed by a reception in the Community Centre.

Borris-Ileigh GAA History Book

Hi all,

I’ve been tasked with compiling and writing a history of GAA activity in the primary schools, e.g. North Finals/ County Finals, Primary Game, INTO mini sevens etc.

The more recent history is fairly well documented, however older records are sparse. I don’t want to leave anyone out!

If you are aware of any noteworthy GAA related facts from 1987 to present in relation to Fantane NS, St Theresa’s GNS, St Patrick BNS or Scoil Naomh Cualán please get in contact with me at scoilnaomhcualan@gmail.com. Or you can drop photos, newspaper cuttings etc. into the school and I’ll photocopy or scan what’s needed.  

I’m looking for photos of teams, photos of Primary Game representatives, write ups from finals, coaches that were involved over the years, pupils who went on to represent Tipperary in the various codes, GAA quiz winners etc.

Many thanks for your help,

Michael Small
