Community Bike Ride
Last Sunday we cycled to The Ragg and into Templemore and returned to the Bush and Briar coffee shop for refreshments in beautiful sunshine and great company. Thanks to all cyclists and to the Bush and Briar for their hospitality and service.
Borrisoleigh Historical Society
Monday 22nd May saw a fine turnout in the Community Centre for a talk on famine times in Borrisoleigh and on the mass evictions at Cullohill in 1850. Following the talk, Sofiia Mandrusiak from Kolomyiia spoke about the historical connections between the history Ukraine and Ireland and also on the current state of affairs in her country. The text of her speech is available here.
Borrisoleigh Active Social Club
A group from our club headed off to Kildare last Friday. First stop was The National Stud and Japanese Gardens. It was a beautiful day and the tour around the fabulous horses was so interesting. Later in the day we headed onto Newbridge Silverware. There we saw style of some of the icons including 3 dresses belonging to Princess Diana.
