First Holy Communion

First Holy Communion

On Saturday last, 24th May, fifteen children received the Sacrament of First Holy Communion in St. Patrick’s Church, Killashee. The beautiful ceremony was performed by Fr Nigel Charles. Many months of work went into making the day so special, work by the children and their parents, teachers and Fr. Nigel. The children who received their First Holy Communion from Cloontagh National School were Aisling O’Dowd, Lucy Lane, Laura Kavanagh, Shauna Donlon, Cian Cosgrove and Aaron Farrell. The children from Killashee National School were Francis Brady, Brian Farrell, Alex Forde, Ruadhán Killian and Mikie Stokes. The children from Clondra National School were Rebekah Donohue, Johnny Doyle, Kian McArdle and Daniel O’Brian. Congratulations to all the children involved and wish them all well in the future.
