Many of the groups presented a symbol as Mass commenced and Siobhan Casey supplied the beautiful music. Children from Cloontagh, Killashee and Clondra did prayers of the faithful. After Mass everyone enjoyed a cup of tea and a chat. Thank you to all who worked so hard to ensure the success of this lovely community gathering.
