Just a thought: True friendship is like sound health. The value of it is seldom known until it is lost!!

The Month of May is dedicated especially to Our Lady. People like to do something extra during this month to honour her and remind themselves that she is always there to help us. Try to have a May Alter in your home. It would help you pray. We hope to have the Rosary recited every evening during the month of May in the Granlahan and Ballinlough churches at 8pm. Please support this rosary.

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Annie Duffey Nee Gordon late of Cooltinney, who was buried during the week.

Retreat in the Pastoral Centre Achill. From 1st-7th June Sr. Marie Carr and Sr. Cathleen Calvey of Loreto Sisters, Saggart, Dublin, and daughters of Mary & Joseph, Tallagh, are offering the opportunity of a directed retreat in the Pastoral Centre in Achill. The retreat is open to Laity, Religious and Priests. There will be time for prayer, reflection and each person will have the opportunity to reflect and talk to one of the directors each day. There will be time to relax and time to enjoy the beauty of the area. We wish to thank Archbishop Michael Neary who has given his permission for the retreat and also Fr. Brendan McGuinness, P.P. of Achill for his kindness and co-operation.
