It’s a big occasion for Borris-in-Ossory GAA Club this Sunday, December 30, as they officially turn on their new floodlights for the first time.
O’Keefe Park in Borris-in-Ossory has a proud history as a venue and has hosted many big games over the years.
In recent years, the Borris-in-Ossory and Kilcotton clubs have come together and enjoyed a famous day in 2016 when they won the Laois SHC title for the first time.
The new club still use the facilities of the two original clubs and field separate football teams to keep the identity alive.
Borris-in-Ossory recently purchased land behind where they have played for generations and developed a second playing pitch and they have now also added floodlights, further improving their already good facilites.
They will turn on those lights this Sunday and there will be an exhibition match provided by the Borris-Kilcotton juveniles.
Refreshments will be provided for all afterwards.
The action gets underway at 6pm and it promises to be great occasion.
