Fr. Matt rang on Sunday night and was amazed to hear that so many people had contributed so generously. He asked that we extend his deep gratitude to everyone and said all will be remembered in his prayers and the prayers of the many people who will benefit from your generosity St. Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians during the week was so appropriate – "God loves a cheerful give… you will be enriched in every way for great generosity…"
At present we have collected more than €10,000 – if anyone would still like to contribute – the fiend will remain open for another 2 weeks. Further details from Marian Harrington. Tel. 0504-52020 / 087-6765133

Clodagh Macra Ice-Cream Fun Day
Some of the hard-working Macra Members who helped to organise and run the fun day
Despite the weather, a great crowd turned out for what was a very enjoyable day for all. There was plenty of activity for all, with bouncing castles, welly throwing, hurling targets, and many more games. The tug of war competition was very popular with 6 teams entering and the team representing "The Shop", in Glastrigan beat the Clodagh team in the final. There was of course ice-cream and refreshments for all.
A huge thanks must go to all of our memebers who helped to organise and run the event and turned up to support us on the day. As all the money has not been collected yet, we do not have an official figure as to what was raised, but it all goes to a great cause.
Saturday evening saw us compete in the Annual South Tipp raft race. Success eluded us as our raft capsised on a number of occasions, but it was very entertaining nevertheless!
Best of luck also to our farm skills team who are competing this Sunday in Dunmanway for a place in the National Final.
Supporting the ice-cream fun day – Gemma, Paddy and Becky taking a break!
