CLONPRIEST OPEN-AIR MASS 2016
What a beautiful evening for an Open-Air Mass earlier this evening- we were very privileged to have 3 local clergy with us to say the Mass, Canon David Herlihy, Canon Tom Browne and Father Cockery who were joined by our local Gortroe Choir who sang some beautiful hymns. Well over 200 attended the annual mass and then afterwards we went to the local hall for refreshments and the chat.Many many thanks to everybody who helped out in any way, the friendship and camaraderie over the last few weeks was mighty.
The graveyard survey was funded by a grant from the Local Diaspora Fund 2015 (Dept of Taoiseach).
