Thank You

Thank you to all who prepared and participated in the Triduum in honour of Our Lady of Fatima. Thanks to Fr. Ailbe and Fr. Des from the Fatima Apostolate for their visit and for bringing the Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima. Well done to one and all for the wonderful 3 days for the Parish.


The family of the late Eileen Price would like to thank, most sincerely, all those who sympathised with them in their recent bereavement. The kind reflective words and thoughtful gestures were most appreciated. We will always be grateful to the following people who contributed in no small way to mum’s quality of life in recent years: the wonderful carer’s from Fingal Homecare, our local HSE nurses, Haven Pharmacy, the nurse and doctors in the Mater Private Hospital, Dr Ava Egyed and last but not least, the St. Francis Hospice Team for their invaluable support and care. Mass will be offered for your intentions.
