We are now gratefully accepting all donations from the community of bric-a-brac, books, toys (no soft toys please) and pledges of baked goods.

RCAG: The Kenagh-Foigha Branch of the Royal Canal Amenity Group (RCAG) will hold an important meeting in the enterprise centre (old school) on Friday March 2nd at 8pm. With the completion of the main line of the canal to Clondra, our focus will now be concerned with arranging canal related events and other activities. A full attendance of members is expected and new members will be welcome. Note: change of venue.
ASH WEDNESDAY: Lent begins this Wednesday February 22. Always a great Irish tradition to wear the blessed ashes on the forehead on the day as a gentle reminder of where we are going. Ashes will be distributed after 7.30 Mass in St. Dominic’s Church on Wednesday. No doubt the following seven weeks will be much easier than what went before now when we had to endure a strict regime of fast and abstinence until Easter Sunday.
MILL HILL MISSIONARIES: Fr. Christopher Fox who has spent 20 years in Uganda will be with us during the weekend of February 25 / 26. He will speak at Mass on the work of the missionary church and is requesting new subscribers to their Missionary Magazine ‘St Joseph’s Advocate’. Those who do not wish to subscribe for the magazine are invited to give a donation for the missions and this would be greatly appreciated.
