Personal enhancement programme

Personal enhancement programme

A personal enhancement programme will be taking place in the Canon Donohoe Hall Mohill starting this September. The programme will run on one morning per week from 10am – 1pm. (Day to be agreed by participants).For twelve weeks our aim is to give our participants some time to reflect on their lives. We would like to help them develop their lives, not only on the personal level but financially and socially as well. We will also be aiming to support each participant who decide to go on to further education or to look for employment. If you are interested in taking part either on your own or with a friend, please contact our coordinator Tina on 071 9631253 0863842408.

The late Gerry McCrann ‘an appreciation’.

The parish of Mohill was plunged into deep sadness with news of the untimely death of Gerry McCrann O’Carolan Court, Mohill last weekend. In his youth Gerry was a very gifted and talented footballer accumulating a glittering array of trophies and medals playing for his beloved Mohill GAA Club and Marian college Mohill. Possessing great skill strength speed stamina and starring in the half back line , Gerry was the rock on which many an opening attack floundered. Gerry won county championships at under 12 and under 14. He was a member of the club under 16 team which won a record breaking four in a row championships 1981 to 1984. He was also a member of the club minor team which won championships and four in a row league titles 1983 to 1986. Gerry also played on the first Marian college team to win Connacht championship and Com Breiffne finals. Thanks Gerry for the many sporting memories . To his wife Angela , children Joanne, Mark Peter Gerald, Jenny mother Peggy, sisters Anne Mary and Marie, brothers John and Martin and their extended families you have our deepest sympathy. May he rest in peace.
