I want to thank all the people who attended the cemetery masses in Ballinlough and Teamhair to pray for the repose of the souls of our loved ones. Granlahan on Monday at 8.30pm. There was a huge crowd. Many thanks to those who helped organise the mass and prepare the altar and took part in the liturgy. May the Lord reward you for your goodness.

Care of the Churches :

Ballinlough - Sincere thanks to the people of Cloonlough and Rabbitboro who looked after the church during July. Would the people of Clooncrim and Carrick West care for it during the month of August.
Granlahan: - Our thanks to Group B who cared for Granlahan church during the month of July. Would Grup C look after it during the month of August. ( Mary Gormley, Molly Griffin, Christina Neenan)
