Thought for the week

Reader Query

A reader has contacted us with an unusual question and we’re hoping that one of you can help.

This person was passing by Kilfithmone recently and at the crossroads there is a stone, apparently on a plinth (see attached photo). They are wondering if anyone would know anything about this stone, if it might be an old lifting stone, like the one at the cross in Ballingarry, or if it is just decorative.

If you can enlighten us on this question please let us know on info@borrisoleigh.ie 

Borrisoleigh Active Social Club  

Borrisoleigh Active Social Club will be holding a 45 Drive on Sat April 6th at 8pm in the Community Centre Borrisoleigh.  The prize fund is €1000 and entry fee €10. There will also be a draw for prizes for people who buy tickets and can’t go. Tickets are available from members of the club.  Proceeds are going towards the purchase of another few pieces of outdoor exercise equipment which we installed during last year in the Gaa grounds.  

Our monthly meeting for March takes place on Wed 6th  March at 7pm in the Community Centre Borrisoleigh.  

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
