Renovations to St Brigid’s Church

There was a well-attended public information session at St Brigid’s Church on 27 May during which the majority of those who spoke expressed their opposition to the current proposals for re-ordering the sanctuary and other areas of the church. The meeting was a welcome opportunity to air opinion, and the discussion was animated and constructive. Feedback was invited and those who want to put their comments on record or who didn’t speak at the meeting but would still like their views to be considered, are encouraged to write to Fr Pat and the Parish Pastoral Council at the earliest opportunity. It is not clear what the next stage will be but it is hoped that if there is to be a revised plan, it will similarly be brought to the community for discussion before a decision is taken on submitting it for planning approval.
