PARISH MEETING:

Reminder for Tuesday 21st May at 8.00pm, in the Community Centre, regarding the future of the Parochial House. Everyone has an opinion on the pros and cons of selling, buying or leasing this property and the committee wants to hear these views, both positive and negative.

The questions to be answered on the night are as follows:-

(1) Should we give the diocese the go-ahead to sell the property on the open market.?

(2) Should the parish purchase the property outright from the diocese and look at ways to develop the house and grounds to benefit present and future generations.?

3) Should we ask Limerick County Council to purchase the property and lease it back to Granagh Parish.?

Your parish, your decision. If it is to be sold, so be it - when it's Gone it's Gone.
