New Website: Borris-Ileigh GAA club are happy to announce they have launched their brand new website. It was launched last Friday night in Stapleotn’s Bar amid much wonderment by those watching the proceedings. A huge thank you must go to Niall Cowan who has built this state of the art website for us. Anyone visiting it will testify to its quality, ease to use and general aesthetic good looks. The website can be visited at www.borris-ileighgaa.com We hope to keep it updated on a weekly basis in the next few weeks. Anyone wishing to submit articles can send them toThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Also if you have any old photos that you think people would like to see please send them in. We encourage people to look around the website and get back to us with any recommendations. There are also facilities on the website to play the club lotto and to become a member of the club. The online lotto facility has become very popular, especially for those overseas and far away, and is of huge boost to the club finances. We would also hope that more people would sign up as members. There are many benefits to this such as an up to date text service, in depth match reports and greater access to inter county tickets.

Club Merchandise: We are happy to announce that for this Saturday only there shall be a 20% discount on all club merchandise which is available at Cathal Bourke’s workshop. This is a great offer and a great opportunity to get gear at a great price-you’ll be well dressed for the new season!!!

Ticket Deal: The County Board have recently announced a fantastic ticket package for supporters for the coming year. The Premier Gold Club Plus package offers patrons entrance to all adult club games in the county and entrance to all Tipperary senior hurling matches for the very reasonable sum of €200. This is a great offer, especially to those who attend a large volume of matches throughout the season.
