Happy 70th John:

John, the Brothers & Marian.


Congratulations to John Griffin, Graigacurra, who celebrated his 70th at the weekend, may he enjoy many more celebrations.


At Mass last weekend, Joan Brosnan's parents, Ned & Mary Duggan, were remembered, as well as her uncle Ned Madden. Also remembered, the anniversaries of Sadie & David Bennett.

At Mass on the 14th, Peggy Tierney's fourth anniversary was remembered. Also, her brother John Barrett, who sadly passed away last week, after a battle with blood cancer. The 66-year-old renowned Irish celebrity hairstylist operated his salon at Bergdorf Goodman and recently at his JB 57 Studio, in Manhattan, for over twenty years. He is predeceased by his parents John and Philomena, brothers Christopher, Jimmy and sister Peggy. He will be forever cherished by brothers Pat, Mike, Eddie, Joe, Gerry and sister Kathleen, their families, and a large circle of loyal friends in New York. May he Rest in Peace.


Coming up in September, our choir director Roisin is making some changes and would like to set up a Folk Choir (guitar accompaniment). She hopes that the choir can sing once a month at mass as well as special occasions, with rehearsals once a month. It will be open to all and especially from secondary school upwards. Please spread the word and encourage any younger people, both male & female, to join.
