The first masses at the refurbished and re-roofed St Molleran's Church in Carrickbeg were celebrated at the weekend. 

Carickbeg & Windgap parishoners flocked to their revamped parish church at the top of Friary Hill on Saturday night and Sunday morning. 

 Bishop of Waterford & Lismore Most Rev. Alphonsus Cullinan will visit the church this Thursday, April 6 to perform the sacrement of Confirmation for students of Crehana National School. 

The eight-month long renovation project that included the replacement of the roof and redecoration of the church's interior, was completed last Saturday morning.
