Community Centre

Community Centre

The AGM which was held on Friday 27th September had to be called off due to the non election of a chairperson. The meeting is now rescheduled for this Thursday 3rd October at 8.00pm. It would be very much appreciated if all groups or organisations using the community centre would please nominate one person to be elected as a committee member. If we are unsuccessful in electing a new committee, the community centre may have to close.


Lucy and Jackie at Rathmhuire & Dolmen Services would like to thank the Mullinalaghta parishioners for their generosity at the recent church gate collection. The money will be carefully spent providing services for the older people in our community.
