First Holy Communion Day was celebrated in Borrisoleigh on Sunday June 14th. Twenty-six pupils from our three primary schools, St. Theresa’s N.S., St. Patrick’s N.S. and Scoil Bhríde, Fantane celebrated their First Holy Communion on the day. Fr. Nicholas Irwin was the main celebrant at the Mass during which he complimented all concerned for their efforts in preparing the young boys and girls for this important day in their lives. He especially thanked teachers for their invaluable work and example with the children throughout the year.
