Our Area Gatherings – 22 of them so far begin on May Eve.
If your Area, your townland, your housing estate would like to be included during the months May – August please contact the Parish Office for consideration by Parish Council.
These have been enormously suc-cessful for bringing people together, for getting to know one an-other, for building community.
How often have we heard “if it weren’t for these we might never have met”.
Its important we all play our part in nourishing community.

In spite of the weather on Thursday a big crowd gathered in Begley’s Field for our 2nd Area Gathering this year. The rain stayed away until the end of Mass. However even then as the rain came down people stayed having the cup of tea and sandwich and bun and above all having the chat. It was a massive community experience. This was
such a great occasion with so many interesting instruments and to-ries from the past that we will include a bigger piece in next weeks newsletter.
The 2nd Area Gathering of 2012 will take place at 8.00pm 21st June in Begley’s Field.
