First Holy Communion Day in Borrisoleigh

First Holy Communion Day was celebrated in Borrisoleigh on Sunday June 6th last. Nineteen pupils from our three primary schools, St. Theresa’s N.S., St. Patrick’s N.S. and Scoil Bhríde, Fantane received their First Holy Communion on the day. Fr. Michael Barry CC 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 Mrs Maeve Slattery, Mrs Mary Butler and Ms Deirdre Harrison for their invaluable work and example with the children throughout the year.
