A gentle and final reminder to return your Tax Relief form. Happily, it will cost you nothing but will be of considerable financial benefit to the parish.


Our sincerest thanks to all who contributed to the Summer collection for the Priests of the parish and Diocese and for using special envelope provided.


Next draw on July 8 in Kilcash, after 10am Mass. FIRST FRIDAY:

July 6 - Masses Kilsheelan 9.30am and Kilcash 7.30pm. The sick or housebound or those who care for them should contact the priest if they wish to have Holy Communion or a blessing.


Our compliments once more to all who prepared the “stations” for the feast day of Corpus Christi. Also to all who maintain the shrines of the parish. In this context we might appeal again to young people and their parents and guardians to respect the grotto and its environs in Kilsheelan Village. This is maintained beautifully for the parish by the Tidy Towns volunteers. It is a focal point of the village and one of its most eye catching sites. It can also be dangerous for climbing or playing on.


The Minor Hurlers got off to a good start with a 2-12 to 1-8 victory over Skeheenarinky. The Junior Hurling team will take on Ballylooby-Castlegrace on Saturday evening in Newcastle. Congrats to Bill Maher, who captained the Tipperary Minor hurlers, in their comprehensive victory over Waterford last week. Best wishes to Manager, David Power and the Kilsheelan players involved in the Munster Minor Football Final next Sunday.
