By Ger Ryan

We had another lovely cycle Sunday morning in the beautiful countryside with the sun shining down on us as we chatted our way through the Ragg and across to Drom village with gorgeous views of the devils bit in front of us.  Anyone interested check out the cycling Ireland website and register for next Sunday.  Thanks to all cyclists who turned up last Sunday really enjoyed it.

Introduction to Ceramics

Borrisoleigh Active Social Club

Borrisoleigh Active Social Club held their September meeting last Wednesday night.  After the summer break there was alot of ideas being discussed for the coming season.

Pilates class for our members returns on Tues Sept 17th at 6.45pm.

Among the ideas are our annual Christmas shopping trip which this year will be to Cork on Dec 10. Panto in Limerick which is Aladdin on Dec 28.

It is hoped to have a Halloween party on Oct 25. We are also aiming to have a First Aid Course and a weekly exercise class. Day trips and music concerts. More details to follow on all the above.
We have a group of our members heading off to Galway next Sunday. They are being joined by a group from the Drom/Inch club. They will be having a cruise on Lough Corrib and also heading to Kylemore Abbey.  No doubt there will be time for a bit of retail therapy.  Hopefully everybody will enjoy the trip.
If anyone is interested in going to any of the above please contact Lucia on 0863961211
