Rosenallis Tidy Towns

Thanks to everyone who donated and collected at the recent church gate collection which raised €440.10. This money goes towards petrol for grass cutting, weedkiller, flowers and other items required by the CE team working in the village.

We would like to thank them for their hard work, the graveyard looks well and is a credit to them and the Graveyard committee.


Deepest sympathy is offered to the family of Mary Foynes nee Maher Brocca, Clonaslee and formerly Rosenallis. Mrs Foynes passed peacefully on June 3.

Deepest Sympathy to the Egan family on the death of Mattie Egan, Deepark, Ballyfin who died peacefully at home on June 24 surrounded by his loving family.

Deepest sympathy also to the family of Mary Dunne nee Kirwan, The Catholes Clonurk, Ballyfin who was a retired staff member from St Vincent’s Hospital, Mountmellick.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.
