Borris Mourns Another Hurling Great

Sadness again  spread throughout the village of Borris In Ossory on Friday last (5th of April) with the news of the sad passing of Brendan Dollard R.I.P.

Brendan or “Shelly” as he was also known was born on the 31st of April 1947. Brendan played with Laois Minors in 1965 and also with the Intermediate and  Senior county teams. Brendan won many titles with Borris In Ossory including his captaincy of 1972 senior winning team that beat Ballyfin, playing at Centre Back, (their first Senior title in 11 years), an intermediate title in 1988, a Brady cup in 1973, junior title in 1970 and an Under-21 title in 1968.

Brendan was also a trustee of Borris In Ossory G.A.A. club. from 1981 up until his passing. Brendan was appointed Hononary Life Member of the Club in 2006. He also trained and was a selector with Borris-In-Ossory Senior team for many years and also trained Kilcotton to an Intermediate title in 1992. Brendan also had spells with Camross, Castletown and the Pike of Rushall at underage level.We extend our deepest sympathies to Brendan’s family at this sad time. Ar dheis dé go raibh a ainm
