Covid 19 Restrictions: Because of Covid 19 Restrictions on outdoor gatherings there will be no prayers said at any of the Cemeteries this year. Instead prayers and rosary will be recited for all who are buried in Borrisoleigh, Ileigh and Glenkeen Cemeteries after the 11am on line Mass on next Sunday November 8th.

Our Annual Mass for all who have died in our parish over the past 12 months will be celebrated on-line on Friday November 13th @ 7pm. Please join us on line @ twitch.tv/borrisoleighandileigh

Thought for the week: Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see further.”- Thomas Carlyle.
