I hope that nothing prevented you from enjoying the wonderful Bank Holiday weekend. The whole world seemed to have been on the move, with everybody out in the great out of doors, soaking up the sunshine and the atmostphere. The number of people from other countries visiting, was very obvious and how great it was for once that we had some lovely weather for them to enjoy.
As always we welcome any visitors who are here at the moment and hope they have a nice time.

A special ceremony was held in our Church last week for all those involved in the weekly Eucharistic Adoration in Cullen and Millstreet as well as the general public. The Community Singers attended. Following the Mass and one hour expositition of the Blessed Sacrament, refreshments were served at the Parish Centre.
In his sermon Canon John, commended all those who continue to keep the Eucharistic Adoration going in the parish. And stressed the need for prayer in the World of to-day.
As time goes by it is inevitable that numbers can drop due to death or illness, and more people are invited to keep the numbers up.
For details of how to become a regular Adorer please contact the Parish Office 02970043.
This week we wish all our students who will be engaged in the Inter and Leaving Cert Exams ,every success. The annual Mass is said for their intentions at Tubrid well on Tuesday June 7th.
