Borris in Ossory GAA is a Gaelic Athletic Association hurling club in the small town of Borris-in-Ossory, County Laois, Ireland.

The club colours are red and white and the club grounds are called O'Keefe Park.

Borris-in-Ossory competes in the senior grade after their 2009 Laois Intermediate Hurling Championship win and amalgamates at underage level with its neighbouring club, Kilcotton.

The club won five Laois Senior Hurling Championships, the last of which came in 1972. The Laois and Leinster star Christy O'Brien played in all five wins and was captain for the first four wins between 1956 and 1961.
