Items taken from Carrickedmond Church

It is very regrettable that this week we have to report that a number of church items were taken from Carrickedmond church some time on Friday afternoon last. People in the parish are reminded to be on the lookout for any suspicious movements or cars around the area. If anybody has any information regarding any suspicious movements around Carrickedmond church on Friday afternoon last please contact Ballymahon Gardai.

Clothes Collection

There will be a used clothes collection from outside St Sinneachs national school Colehill on Friday the 24th January, at 9.30 am. Please leave bags of old used clothing, shoes etc, at the school wall before collection time. Thanking you for your support.

Used Stamps

Please collect used stamps and place them in the box located and marked “Used Stamps” at the rear of the Carrickedmond church and Abbeyshrule church. These stamps will be collected and used by missionary groups who make a small amount of money by selling them to stamp dealers.

Christmas Parish Newsletter

There are still copies of the Carrickedmond/Abbeyshrule Christmas newsletter available and can be had by contacting Fr Tiernan PP. This year’s issue is full of very interesting reading about various groups in the parish and lovely articles of times past including old photographs. This news letter would be of interest to people from the parish now living away.
