Congratulations and best wishes for a happy future to John Dalton, Glenagragra who got married to Evelyn Casey last weekend in Glin Church.  

Get well wishes to Mary Brouder, Knocknaclugga who, I hope, will be back to full health very soon.

The children of Clann Lir Montessori School, Ballyhahill, had a lovely day out at O’Halloran’s Pet Farm last week. It is great to have all these amenities at our doorstep – both the school and the pet farm!

Arrangements are full speed ahead for Killeaney AFC members as they prepare for their 40th anniversary on July 4th in Knockdown. A marquee is once again being erected on the grounds and buffet food, drink and conversation will flow all evening and night. Tickets are available from all committee members and must be bought beforehand to ensure that there will be food for each person. Don’t delay. €25 each.

Thanks to those parishioners who filled up the recent Diocesan Synod questionnaire forms; they have been forwarded to the Diocesan Office to be analysed and codified. In the autumn there will be more meetings with delegates to prepare them for the actual Synod in April 2016.
