Entente Florale Europe

Clonmel will welcome the International Entente Florale Jury on this Friday, 3rd August, when they arrive in town to assess it as part of this European wide competition initiative. The emphasis is on partnership between the Local Authority and the local community working together to achieve goals and objectives, such as beautifying their towns, increased environmental awareness in education and communication as well as in heritage and other aspects of the competition.

To put the importance of this visit into context, it is worthy to note that Judges from Belgium, Croatia, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Italy, Hungary, Czech Republic, Germany, Slovenia and Austria will adjudicate our town.

Work is continuing to ensure that the town will perform well in the competition and the steering committee is calling on all the town’s people to play a role to ensure that “Rare Clonmel” is presented to the highest possible standard.

Holy Year Cross

The Annual Mass at the Holy Year Cross will be celebrated Bank Holiday Monday, August 6th at 11 am. There will be no Mass in the Ss. Peter & Paul’s Church or the Church of the Resurrection on that day.

The Eucharist

“Get the Eucharist at the centre of your personal life and community life; love the Eucharist, adore the Eucharist and celebrate it, especially on Sundays, the Lord’s day. Live the Eucharist by testifying to God’s love for every person. (John Paul II)
