Our Annual Remembrance Mass of the Dead took place in The Sacred Heart Church on Friday night (9th November). A candle was lit and placed on the Altar in memory of all those who died in our parish over the last 12 months and for those who died away from our parish but who have roots in Borrisoleigh and Ileigh. May they all rest in peace.
