Children preparing for their First Holy Communion pay a visit to our Adoration Chapel to adore Jesus
This year we have twelve children from our three primary schools who will receive their First Holy Communion next Sunday May 26th. They have been preparing for this big day for a long time and great credit is to be given to their teachers Ms Harrison, Ms Lanigan and Mrs Slattery who do an excellent job with them. We wish all concerned the very best of luck for next Sunday.

The Minister says: "Following a very wet summer and an extended winter, conditions for farmers are very challenging. My department has been working on this over the winter and continues to monitor the situation very closely on a daily basis. I am acutely aware of the challenging conditions farmers have been working under for the past months. The bad weather has been unprecedented, and we now find ourselves having to import fodder from the UK, a situation that has not occurred before. The strong sense of neighbour helping neighbour, which rural communities are known for throughout the country, has been evident in recent weeks and the farming community is to be commended for pulling together to get through this fodder crisis."

Our under 12’s had their semi-final against Shannon Rovers on Monday the 20th in the Camogie Grounds The Ragg, unfortunately they were defeated by Shannon Rovers. Final score was 2-4 to 1-0, however they played very well. This is our first underage team to reach a semi-final this year, well done on getting this far and better luck next time.
Our U14 footballers recorded a win over Burgess last week in the North quarter final. We progressed to play Ballina in the semi final on Friday night last however after putting in a big performance we were beaten by a couple of second half goals on a scoreline 4-06 to 1-06.
It was great to see such a big turnout from the club at the Foundation level coaching course last Thursday night. The foundation course will continue in St Josephs secondary school on this Thursday evening.
The groups for the u12, U14 and U16 hurling competitions will be sorted at a North Board meeting later this week. Fixtures will commence shortly thereafter more details next week.
