TODDLERS PLUS ONE Group will continue during the summer but it still remains a group for toddlers only.   Unfortunately school going children can’t come along as there as too many little ones in the group.

MONDAY CLUB still continues during the summer. All are welcome to drop into the Parish Hall from 3pm to 5pm on Mondays. Jonathan Fleury will be the ‘key holder’ when the rector is away in August.

PARISH BBQ– Rev Elaine and the members of the Select Vestry are hosting a Barbecue in the Rectory Garden at 8pm on Friday 5th September. During the year in the Parish, we tend to organise lots of things whichinclude our young people so this time we felt that perhaps we should have an adults only event. A donation of 5 euro from each adult to cover the costs of buying the meat and the wine would be much appreciated.  It would also be great if everyone could bring either a salad or a dessert.

Please RSVP to the Parish Office by Tuesday 2nd September so we have an idea of how much meat to purchase. And do indicate whether you will be bringing a salad or dessert.

St Mary’s Indoor Bowls club re-opens on Tuesday 2nd September at 745pm in St Mary’s School Hall. New members welcome. For enquiries contact Denis McLoughlin at 087-6100717 or Henry Forbes 087-2035000.
