St. Johns Well Mass 2006

The annual mass at St Johns well was held on Friday the 23rd of June. There was a fine crowd in attendance on what was a lovely summers evening. There were five priests celebrating mass this year. Cannon Manning and Fr Joe Tarrant from Millstreet, Fr James McSweeney from Ballyvolane, Fr Joe Poole from Namibia, and Fr Manning from Carriganima. There were glorious hymns from the Millstreet Choir and the Millstreet Pipe Band Played for the ceramony as is traditional. Recently trimmed trees and a light breeze thankfully helped to minimize the problem of the midges. The well of course was looking splendid as usual. Many thanks to everyone that attended and to everyone that helped in any way on the evening. The Mass is normally on the night of the 24th of June but was rescheduled this year because it clashed with the regular Saturday night mass.
