Kilsheelan Kilcash



The Junior hurlers continue their preparations for their County Semi Final and their Inter County show down with Limerick champions on November 11.

In the Score Prediction competition Ally Ryan is still in the lead but the chasing pack are closing in, there are only three points between the top four and it is now all down to the last event which is the County Football Final.

The U14 footballers have been playing a lovely brand of football in recent weeks in the Rathgormack tournament. They had to give second best last Sunday evening, despite some excellent football played.


Bring and Buy Sale will take place on Sunday, November 18, Senior Citizens Christmas party on December 9, and the Children’s Christmas party on December 21.

Childrens dancing classes continue on Friday evenings at 4.30pm. New children are always welcome.


Do This in Memory - We wish to compliment all the parishioners who prepared these special Masses for First Communicants and all who participated in them - wonderful examples of congregational participation.

Harvest Masses - Our Harvest Thanksgiving Masses were also very joyful and telling expressions of thanksgiving to God for the bounty of nature and human endeavour. Well done.

Rosary - The October Rosary is celebrated about fifteen minutes before public masses.

Missions - The collection for the missionary work of the church may be handed in during the month of the missions. Please use special envelope from pack.

Bulletin - Items for November Bulletin to be handed in please by this Thursday (25th).

Bishop’s Pastoral Letters - The Bishop’s pastoral letters on the theme “Choosing Life” and “Year of Faith” are both available in our churches.


We compliment our Fas/Fas workers for their overall care of them and of course all the families with relations who rest in them for their respectful attention to them. However, once again we must kindly ask some of those who care for the graves and the monumental sculptors who work at them not to put household rubbish, plastic, discarded wreaths, clay, cement etc in the skips or bins provided. Obviously this would involve increased expense for the parish and also we must remember that European Law explicitly forbids the mixing of refuse in collection bins.

Volunteers especially welcome to assist with the running of the activities, the all-weather facility is also available during the session.

Deepest sympathy is extended to the relatives of the late Mossy Brunnock, Ballydine, who died last week following a very short illness. Mossy worked most of his life on the railway keeping up a tradition of a local employee maintaining the railway line in this area. A diligent and hard worker, always an early riser and punctual, Mossy, a very neat and tidy operator, loved nothing better than a few pints in the local after a day’s toil. 
We extend sympathy to the family of the late Paddy Walsh, Graigue, Ballypatrick who passed away suddenly last weekend. Paddy, living in the area for over a quarter of a century, original from Piltown, not only had a great love of all things associated with horses but was quite a horse trainer himself. A great eye for spotting a possible future champion, Paddy would love to spend a relaxing evening following the fortunes or otherwise of his favourite horses on any racecourse.

Sympathy also to the Quinlan family of Kilsheelan and formerly Manganstown, as Nellie sadly passed away last weekend. A wonderful neighbour, a gentle soul who worked hard in rearing her family was always a pleasure to meet. Never able to utter a bad word about anyone, she could only see the best in everyone and as a neighbour in Railway Close, Kilsheelan village, she will be missed.
