Borrisoleigh Community Development Association AGM

The postponed Borrisoleigh Community Development Association AGM will be held on Tuesday 15th March at 8pm in Finn’s Bar, Borrisoleigh. All are welcome to attend.

AXA Community Cycle

Last Sunday we had a very enjoyable cycle from Horse and Jockey to Cashel. We stopped in the new Cashel Palace hotel for our photo and had refreshments in Grogans coffee shop under blue skies and lovely sunshine. 
We have an extra cycle on Thursday morning this week for Women in Sport week and there are some free spaces available.

Borris-Ileigh Camogie Club Notes

A Mile with a Smile:
Over the extended St. Patrick’s Weekend, our club will host our annual fundraiser which this year is entitled “A Mile with a Smile “.
We will be looking for all our players,  parents and supporters alike to run, jog or walk a mile, send a photo to 0876380649 and make a donation of your choice to our event Gofundme page. All the details will be on our Facebook page.  
Dust off the cobwebs from the runners and help support our club. 
Under 14 and 16s in action:
Both our Under 14 and 16 teams were in action last week in the form of challenge matches. 
Our Under 16s had a useful workout against Silvermines on Wednesday night last while our Under 14s travelled to UL on Sunday evening to play against Newmarket on Fergus under lights.
Defeat was our lot in both fixtures but both were well worthwhile exercises as our teams prepare to commence their respective championships. 
Follow Club Matters:
With the new season about to kick into full flow, keep right up-to-date with all club activities, fixtures and results etc by following our Facebook page and our other social media outlets.

Scoil Naomh Cualán

Helping the people of Ukraine

The families of Scoil Naomh Cualán donated nappies, toothbrushes, plasters, money etc to the people of Ukraine.  Karina Ryan had a friend who was bringing a container of goods to help the people of Ukraine.  We could not believe  the generous response that we got from the families of Scoil Naomh Cualán.  Corey Ryan brought the goods to Clonmel to meet the container.  Corey had to make two trips due to the large amount of goods we received.

World Book Day
We had world book day on the 3rd March.  The children had the opportunity to dress up as a favourite character from a book.  Also we did some buddy reading.  This is where children from the senior school came over and read with the children from the junior school.  There was great excitement as it was over two years since the children had this experience.
