Eddie Pierce writes ‘ I wish to thank everyone who made such a big effort to make our recent parish fete such a great success. From those who helped set up and down, to the stall holders, to those who contributed quality goods and prizes, who sold raffle tickets, who spread the word, who came and bought! Over €6500 was raised which will go towards parish funds. The Select Vestry has set the date for next year for 23rd May 2020 so put it in your diaries!!
