First Holy Communion

This Sunday, 11th of May is First Holy Communnion Day. Six children will receive the Blessed Eucharist for the first time. The Mass at 12 noon replaces the scheduled Sunday Mass.

Community Games

Hard luck to both our U11 and U14 Tag rugby teams in the County semi-finals recently. The U11s fought bravely but came up against a very strong Ardagh/Moydow/glen team. U14s ran a strong Clonguish team to the final whistle only to lose by two pints in the end. A big thank you to Tag rugby mentors Peter O’Boyle, Donna Bermingham and Anne Kelly for giving up so much of their time to coach and prepare the teams for competition games. Also to all the children and parents involved. County are looking for some volunteers for Bag packing the 30/31st May in Dunnes, Longford. 10am-8pm both days. Anyone interested please forward name to anyone on the committee.


We extend congratulations to both Helen Mulvihill and Tommie Hassett, who were married on Friday, 25th April last.


The underage football training sessions, will not take place this Sunday morning due to the Sacrament of First Holy Communnion taking place in Cashel at 12 noon.
