Powerstown Lisronagh



There will be rosary at the grotto in Rathronan every Monday evening at 7.30pm during the month of May.


We extend our sympathy to Ita Roberts, Meadowlands, on the death of her mother Annie Browne, Charleville, Cork.


The annual sacristans collection will take place on Sunday, May 27. Our Sacristans play a vital role in looking after our churches, being available for all the ceremonies and insuring the church is prepared for all the ceremonies. The sacristans are not paid and the annual collection is our way of showing our appreciation and thanks.

Envelopes for the collection are being distributed by the envelope distributors during the coming week.


Congratulations to the 31 boys and girls from Powerstown School who received their First Holy Communion on Saturday last. It was a beautiful ceremony, especially impressive being the dramatisation of the Gospel story of Jairus’s daughter.

Great credit must go to their teacher Aileen Nugent for all the work and effort she put into preparing them for their special day. Thanks to Michelle Everard and Jenna Mclean for all their help in the preparation.

Our thanks also to the Powerstown School Choir who sang beautifully for the mass and enriched it greatly. Great credit must go to Fergus Flynn for preparing and conducting the choir. We thank Maura Forristal for again making herself available to play for the ceremony.

To all involved, children, teachers and parents we say ‘well done’
