CLONPRIEST OPEN-AIR MASS 2019
Our 2019 Open-Air Annual Mass will take place on Friday June 7th here at the cemetery [weather permitting] at 7.30pm. We will be joined by our local Clergy along with our Gortroe Choir. This is an open invitation to come along on the night and afterwards we will have the usual cuppa and the chat in our local Gortroe Hall.
We are blessed with having a very active committee who keep the cemetery in a lovely condition all year around and its a great comfort to visit loved ones in such a lovely setting -
The birds chirping overhead
Sheep Baaing in the fields nearby
And the cemetery is overlooking the Womanagh River with its lush wildlife.
One can sit on the seating provided and take time out to pray while listening to a varied array of sounds.
The graveyard survey was funded by a grant from the Local Diaspora Fund 2015 (Dept of Taoiseach).
