A church gate collection is on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 July in aid of Clonaslee Tidy Towns. Your support is much appreciated as the committee are low on funds. It costs a lot for paint, spray, refuse, flowers and hanging baskets around the village. Sadly there were flowers damaged last Thursday when planters were turned over on Chapel Street and a tree broken. The village is looking well and most appreciated is the great work being done by all involved.


Whist every Sunday night starting at 9 pm sharp in the Parochial hall. All welcome.
