May They Rest in Peace
Those who died in our parish during the past twelve months
A special Mass was celebrated in the Sacred Heart Church on Friday evening last to remember those who died in our parish during the past year. November is a special time for remembering our dead and praying for the eternal repose of their souls. Those listed above and all on our Altar List of the Dead were prayed for during this Mass. Family members then carried a special candle to the Altar in remembrance of their loved one who died during the year. The Rosary has also been prayed in the various cemeteries in the Parish during the Sundays of November.

Eileen Ryan with Mick Fahy and Mick Hyland (Timber Contractors) and Ruff who had his own ‘bark’ about the trees
The line above is the first line from the famous poem ‘Cill Cais’ and it translates as ‘what will we do in future without timber’. This heading came to the mind of the writer as his attention was drawn to vast heaps of timber piled by the wayside awaiting collection for transport to various destinations.
