Harvest Service

The Harvest at Cahir Presbyterian Church, was well attended; the church grounds and vestibule were beautifully decorated with candles and the fruit of the harvest; the sermon by The Revd Sam Millar was thought provoking; the singing was most enthusiastic and a delicious supper was served after the service.

Cahir Presbyterian congregation would like to thank all who came to support the service.

The Tuesday evening 8pm Bible Study and Wednesday Coffee Morning Prayer at 11am have now recommenced at the church; these are non-denominational gatherings and open to all.

Major carpark development begins

The good news that work has commenced on the site next to Supervalu has brought cheer to the residents of Cahir. Locals will be glad to see the former silo site transformed from the eyesore that it was into a beautiful car park that will be of great value to the town. There are 110 car parking spaces planned and the area will be totally landscaped. Work will be completed in two/three weeks. Well done to John, Carmel and Brian Dolan for taking this positive step forward that will enhance the appearance of the town.
