Fund-raiser for Parish Centre
This is a fund-raiser in aid of the Parish Centre.
They would be delighted to welcome anyone who would like to join them in this venture and in singing at Mass during the Christmas season.
Anybody who is interested is asked to come along to the Boys’ N.S. on this Wed. Dec.2nd. between 7.30p.m. and 8.30p.m. or to contact any choir member.
The competitors in the question time, Jack, Seamus and Philip, were narrowly beaten into 3rd place. As a certain radio DJ might say “They didn’t suit ye”! The Novelty Act group were victorious in their competition after raising many laughs in the hall. Within the space of ten minutes they managed to revive hurling and Scór in an undisclosed parish! The set dancers put their best foot forward and tapped their way into the next round.
Well done to all the competitors and best of luck to those heading to the County Final which will take place in Halla na Féile in Cashel on the Friday the 11th of December. A great night’s entertainment is guaranteed and your support would be appreciated.
Smiles from Tom, Dean, Jack, Paudie, Ashling, Danny, Clodagh and Sarah after collecting their trophies.

Quartz the cat has been missing since the 29th of October and he hasn’t been found on any of the roads, which gives the owner some hope.
Quartz is a 5 year old tabby tom cat, unfortunately he is missing his collar. If anyone knows anything please contact Ryan’s Garage at 0504 51334.
Troops in Afghanastian
Please keep in your thoughts/prayers. MSGT Russ White, United States Air force, stationed at DMAFB in Tucson, Arizona. Currently deployed to Afghanastian. His wife Christina O’ Dwyer is from Currabaha, Borrisoleigh.
With a view to assisting in the successful provision of our yearly festive lights the Association will be holding a church gate collection at all masses in the Parish this weekend 5th and 6th December. All business concerns are being appealed to, to support the venture and all donations from every corner of the community will be most welcome as the provision and maintenance involves considerable expenditure.
A special mass in the local Sacred Heart Church will be celebrated at 1:30p.m thereby commencing the evening’s celebration. It is hoped that when our partygoers leave the church they will be greeted by the sight of our Christmas lights, which hopefully will help to dispel the darkness and gloom existing in so many parts of the community.
