Cemetery masses for the parish will conclude this week with the annual cemetery mass in Ballyouskill this Friday, August 3 at 8pm where a large crowd is expected. Many have been tidying graves, placing flowers etc. over the past few weeks and it is hoped the weather will hold up for this annual event.


The season of Ladywell is also drawing near and the committee have been very busy maintaining the area and making safety improvements around the well. The pilgrimage will commence with mass on Wednesday, August 15. The usual novena will take place from August 31 to September 8, details of which will be announced at a later stage.


There was a very good turnout of participants for last Friday evening’s sponsored walk. All those who participated were treated to a great evening’s entertainment with music from a host of local musicians. The organisers would like to thank all those who helped at the event and supported it in any way.
