Message from Father Tom :
”Nine years ago, the road of life took me to Cloonfad and Granlahan. It was the start of a memorable journey and a lovely time spent in these great communities in the parish of Kiltullagh. It was my privilege to serve as your priest during that time.
Now as I leave to take up my new appointment in Kilkerrin, I want to express my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all of you for the wonderful kindness and hospitality that you bestowed on me during those years. I always felt very much at home here in this rural area and will carry only the best of memories from it as I travel on.
To all associated with the recent farewell socials, I want to express my deepest appreciation.
I will miss the people of this region and will always treasure the times I shared among ye all. Cloonfad and Granlahan will ever command a treasured place in my heart. God bless you now and always.” - Fr Tom.
