Since the announcement that our Pastoral Area has been reduced from five priests to four, much work has been undertaken by our Area Pastoral Council to arrange a new schedule for weekend Masses, allowing parishioners in the Pastoral Area to have the option of 5 Vigil Masses and 7 morning Masses.

This new schedule will see the Vigil Mass here in Millstreet Parish changing to 6.15p.m. and Ballydaly and Cullen time will change to 9.30a.m. and these 2 Masses will rotate on a weekly basis. The schedule is as follows: 


Shrone at 6.00p.m. Millstreet at 6.15p.m.

Knocknagree at 7.30p.m. Derrinagree at 7.30p.m.

Kiskeam/Boherbue at 7.30p.m.


Ballydaly/Cullen at 9.30a.m. (Weekly rotation)

Gneeveguilla at 9.30a.m. Dromagh at 10.00a.m.

Boherbue/Kiskeam at 11.00a.m. Ballydesmond at 11.00a.m.

Millstreet at 11.30a.m. Rathmore at 11.30a.m.

The new schedule will commence on Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th September. During the coming week our Parish Office will be in contact with families regarding Masses booked in Ballydaly and Cullen.

This is a period of change for both Priests and congregations and I want to thank you for your continued support and understanding.         Fr. Fitzgerald
