DAWN MASS SUCCESS: Following a very first St. Patrick’s Day parade it was another first for the parish of Herbertstown with the celebration of a Dawn Mass last Easter Sunday in Ballinard cemetery. A huge crowd attended Fr. Jimmy Donnelly’s Mass, far in excess of the numbers expected. After the Mass all were invited to a breakfast of brown bread, black and white pudding and toasted sandwiches in the village hall, it is estimated that 100 people enjoyed the breakfast. The parade and Mass in the last two weeks have been a major uplift for the parish with community spirit at a new high. Well done to all concerned.
