Coffee Morning for Deel Animal Rescue: On behalf of Deel Animal Rescue can we say we were just blown away by people’s generosity at our Coffee morning last Sunday.  Our final count was €2,640.  We are just so grateful to each and everyone that donated and we can assure ye that every cent will go to this wonderful charity.

Praying the Rosary: Most parishioners are aware that the Rosary is recited approx. half an hour, on most days before the Masses. In her messages, especially at Fatima, Medjugorje, and many other places, Our Lady has urged the faithful to pray the Rosary daily. St. Padre Pio has referred to it as the “Weapon of our Times”, so it would please the Blessed Virgin very much, if more people, especially children, took up her invitation, and joined the small Parish group in praying the Rosary. It is prayed for the conversion of Russia, Ireland, and the whole world, for the end of wars, protection from natural disasters, and that the promised, and, long-for reign of peace would soon be ushered in.
