Planting Trees

An invitation for Saturday evening next at 8.00 pm. At the reclaimed piece of ground on the Thurles Road, near the beginning of the Golden Mile, —-a little tree planting ceremony. Ssophiia Mandrusiak will plant a fruit tree to mark the link between her native Ukraine and Borrisoleigh. This is an opportunity to welcome Ssophiia and her parents to our locality and we hope that by the time that the tree bears fruit, peace will once more reign in their beloved Ukraine. A cup of tea afterwards and hopefully a little music to make the evening memorable for our guests.

Thought for the week: Simple rule in Life; if you wouldn’t like it done to you, don’t do it to others.


Photography Exhibition

Templemore Library will host a photography exhibition during the months of June and July 2022 entitled “The Wonderful World of Nature Photography”. The exhibition will run from the middle of June to the end of July and will be available to view during the library opening hours. It’s free of charge and well worth a visit. You might be surprised at what you see.

This exhibition is a collection of photographs from the lens of John F Kennedy.  John F is not a photographer, but he is a lover of nature with a camera. He is a former army sergeant and is an outdoors enthusiast, spending a lot of his spare time on our hills and mountains either walking or cycling and his camera is never far away. Closer to home, one of his favourite places is Templemore Town Park and the Park is featured heavily in this exhibition.

This exhibition is a vision of the natural world all around us as seen through his lens.

The goal of this exhibition is to showcase the wide and wonderful world of nature on our doorstep.

This is only a glimpse into the natural world and not a definitive catalogue of all local wildlife but rather a collection of images that can be added to.
