Ceremonies: The Easter Religious Ceremonies were very well attended, the Dawn Mass in the village park on Easter Sunday morning attracted a very large congregation. The Mass was celebrated by Frito Breen PP in the very cold weather conditions, nevertheless the many people that attended were very happy on this solemn occasion.
The contribution to the Lenten Trocaire collection was a little below average due to these austere financial times.The first of the weekly collections for the repair of the Church was taken up at the Masses over the weekend.
