Borrisoleigh Community Development Association (BCDA) would like to invite you to ‘The Big Hello’ on Saturday May 4th at 4pm in the Community Centre.
The Big Hello!, Ireland’s National Community Weekend, is going to be a weekend of community celebration. The event is a celebration of the great spirit of community that exists across the country, and is an effort to help people who share communities to come together, get to know each other, and deepen the sense of community in their area.
BCDA are hosting this free event in Borrisoleigh and all are welcome to attend. In particular we would like to see representatives from committees and volunteers of the various clubs and organisations in the Parish attend. So much work is done by committee members and volunteers throughout the year who volunteer their time and we would like to reward your efforts with a chance to enjoy some refreshments and meet your friends and neighbours in a relaxed and friendly environment. Keep an eye on this website for further details.
Rathmoy Golden Mile Tree Trail
Preceeding the event in the Community Centre, Rathmoy Residents Association in association with BCDA are officially launching the Rathmoy Golden Mile Tree Trail. This event starts at 2pm. In conjunction with CM Signs of Thurles, signs have been erected along the Golden Mile with information and history of trees along the walk.
Dr. Aine Lynch of the National Parks and Wildlife Service
and Tom Gallagher from Cabragh Wetlands, will be in attendance and will speak a little about the biodiversity of trees etc. as the walkers move along. There will also be a Seanchaí and historian to guide us through some of the very interesting stories of Rathmoy. Tales such as ‘Moll the Shilling’, ‘The White Witch’ and plenty more will entertain and inform all who attend. Attendees are asked to park in the Town Park and take the 3 minute walk down towards Rathmoy to take part.
At the end of the walk approximately 3.30pm there will be quick quiz to test your knowledge of what you have learned! Afterwards everyone is invited back to join in with ‘The Big Hello’ event in the Community Centre.
So put it in your diaries, Saturday 4th May, and make sure to attend ‘The Big Hello’ and join us in celebrating the wonderful community spirit that is alive and well in Borrisoleigh. You can attend either of the events or both, the choice, like the community, is yours!
