Congratulations to Lisa & Danny Baker, Graigacurra on the arrival of their first baby. Killian Billy Baker arrived safely on 25th Mar, weighing in at 7lb 10ozs. Belated congratulations to Maureen & JJ Enright, Kilmore, on the arrival of their second little girl, Aishling, who is five months old now. These days we are lucky to hear any news at all.! Great to welcome new arrivals to the parish.
KEEP GRANAGH GREEN:
As there is no communal clean-up for TLC6 this year, it's up to everyone to do their bit. Parts of Kilmore, Doorluss Liskennett and Graigacurra are already done. Over the Easter break, try and get out, there's plenty rubbish out there. Involve the children too.
Sending good wishes to Gerry Mulcahy, Kingsland and any parishioners who are in hospital or recovering at home. It is a difficult time for people as no visitors are allowed call.
