ANNUAL COLLECTION FOR CANCER RESEARCH
The Annual Collection for Cancer Research will be held at the church gates of St. Mary’s, this Saturday night 19th February at the 7.30pm mass. Collections will also be held at the Nire Church and Fourmilewater Church on Sunday 20th February, supporting the Aid Cancer Treatment Care and Cure and we hope people will support this worthy cause.
We express sincere sympathy to sisters Joan and Kathleen, brother Michael and the extended family and many friends of the late Bob Keane (R.I.P). Bob was President of the Sliabh gCua/St. Mary’s GAA Club and along with his sister Joan, had been actively involved with the Club for many decades. Bob’s commitment to the Club was reflected by the 24 team members who carried Bob’s remains from his residence to his final resting place with all members and the guard of honour proudly wearing their team colours as a mark of respect. May he rest in peace.
The Badminton Club will hold a Quiz in Hanrahan’s Pub, Ballinamult, on Friday 25th February. Teams will consist of 4 players, with tables costing €20 per team. The Badminton Club has been active in the Parish for many, many years and has coached many of the young and old to enjoy not only the game but, the importance of exercise in our daily lives. So come along and enjoy a good night out. All are welcome.
