Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a Cairde and welcome to my weekly report.
I hope you’re making the most of this spell of beautiful warm sunny weather.
Our annual Corpus Christi Parade was blessed with sunshine on Sunday last after the 11.30 Mass and a large crowd took part.
And on Monday night Fr. Paddy O Byrne celebrated Mass at Tubrid Well and again a large crowd attended.
The good news here at the moment is that we no longer have to boil our water supply which comes from our holy Tubrid Well. The new filter system has been installed in record time, and we are free to use the precious liquid direct from the tap. Visitors to the Well will find that they will no longer have to bend down to get a cup of water. A nice tap has been put in place plus with a supply of cups. People continue to flock to this Holy place where they will find peace and tranquillity at any time of day or night.
