CLONPRIEST OPEN-AIR MASS 2018
Our 2018 Open-Air Annual Mass will take place on Friday June 1st 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 had a beautiful Mass concelebrated with both Canon David Herlihy and Canon Tom Browne along with our local Choir. Approx 200 locals attended and we then went to the local Hall for the cuppa and the chat. Many thanks to everybody who helped in any way to make the Mass a special occasion.
The graveyard survey was funded by a grant from the Local Diaspora Fund 2015 (Dept of Taoiseach).
