Ardagh & Clonmacnoise annual Knock Diocesan Pilgrimage with Bishop Francis Duffy, Sunday, September, 7th. Bus tickets available after Mass in the Sacristy or from Fr. McGrath, Mgr. Earley or Fr. Bannon.


To Mrs. Margaret Kelly, Russagh, who recently won the Brown Bread Baking competition and went on to compete in An Grinan I.C.A. competition in Termonfeckin, County Louth which she also won and is now nominated to bake in the All-Ireland competition to take place during the National Ploughing Competitions. Margaret is married to Michael Kelly and is also a sister of Johnny, (the hurler), Keary in this parish. We all wish her further success and no doubt she will enjoy the event.
