Choir Practice There will be a choir practice for Confirmation in Granlahan church on Monday next, 16th Feb at 8.30pm. For the few weeks that this choir practice is taking place, Adoration will finish at 8.30pm. My apologies for any inconvenience, but this is the only evening that suits. I would ask any choir members who can from Granlahan & Ballinlough areas, join this choir as we prepare for Confirmation.
