Weekly News 28th September 2014

Mary Fogarty and Maeve O’Hair attended the recent meeting in Ballinderry and gave a very informative talk. The next step will be to compile a Survey, which will be distributed in the area, to find out if people would like to see a meeting place established in Ballinderry as a venue for people to meet and exchange ideas, to socialise and meet new people and with a view to opening a co-op shop for crafts and home produced products. The survey will give you an opportunity to voice your ideas and needs.

Our congratulations are extended to Michael Hourigan and Claire Larkin, who were recently married, we wish them a long and happy life together.

We welcome into our parish Thomas Cormican, who was recently baptised.
