  • Borris (Irish: An Bhuiríos, formerly Buirgheas Ó nDróna) is a small town on the River Barrow, in County Carlow, Ireland. It lies on the R702 regional road. Borris commands panoramic views of the neighbouring countryside with Mount Leinster and the Blackstairs Mountains to the east, and the Barrow Valley to the west. It is the home to Borris House, the ancestral home of the MacMurrough Kavanaghs. The town has one of the oldest golf courses in Ireland as well as a 16-arch limestone viaduct (the 16 Bridges) built in 1860 and designed by William le Fanu. It has a mixed national school and vocational school (colloquially known as "The Tech" or "BVS"), a Roman Catholic church, seven public houses, three take-aways, and three convenience stores (Cosgraves/Costcutters, O'Sheas/Centra and Borris Service Stn.). The Old School closed in 1980 and has been used by different community groups including Scouting Ireland, which has a branch of Scouts, Cubs and Beavers there. It also houses CRISP (Carlow Rural Information Services Project). Recently a branch of Carlow County Library has opened in the Old School. Between the Library and CRISP, there is a Tourism Information Point. Borris House caters for weddings and other functions such as poetry readings (Seamus Heaney) and concerts (Mary Coughlan, Mundy) and held "Christmas at the Castle" in December 2011. It played host to the National Country Fair in 2012 and will do so again in 2013. (en)
