Bush & Briar Ramblers Trip


Forty two Bush and Briar Ramblers travelled to Ballina/ Killaloe last Saturday morning where we boarded a cruise across Lough Derg. We then walked 12km back to Killaloe taking in the Ballycuggaran Loop on way.  To finish off our day we enjoyed a meal in Gooser’s Restaurant.

U10 & U8’s will return indoors to the Sports Hall in St. Joseph’s College in October for three Wednesday nights for a fun indoor camogie tournament. Many thanks to St. Joseph’s for accommodating us.

Craft Class/Community Project

The Craft class in Borrisoleigh will be commencing their community project in the park in the coming weeks. 

This will be a mural that will be painted on a sheet of mdf and secured to a section of the wall dividing the park and the parochial property.

It is hoped that it would be a mural of houses, local attractions and maybe some business premises. If any businesses would be interested in making a contribution/ supporting this project it would be greatly appreciated. Materials such as paint and mdf will need to be purchased. Any businesses that support this community project will have their premises represented on the mural.

This is a project being done by the craft class. Anyone that would like to get involved is more than welcome to join us. It is a great opportunity to continue to enhance the great work that is being done by all in the park. 
Any enquiries please phone 0876166225.
