Invitation to Mission

We warmly invite you, your family, friends and neighbours  to come to our Parish Mission in St. Kevin’s Church, Tinahely Monday 25th – Friday 29th April next.  All of us lead busy lives, and a parish Mission is an opportunity for  us to slow down, to set aside one week to renew our faith and reconnect our lives with God.  

This mission is  for everybody and  people of every age from near and far.

This Mission will be conducted by St. Patrick’s Community,  a group of  laypeople based in Carrick on Shannon, Co. Leitrim, who have given over 200 Missions in Ireland and across the UK during the past 15 years, with a great response to their work. 

The Mission team will bring the faith alive by sharing their own personal stories of how their struggles in life brought them closer to God. Their message appeals to all ages. 

The Mission will have Mass and talks at 9.30 a.m. Monday to Thursday, and the evening mission will be at 7.30 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and  will conclude on Friday evening with Mass and music at 7.30 p.m.

Each evening has a different  reflection theme with talks, prayers and  music.

Members of Parishes in the surrounding areas are welcome to join us during these special days. All are most welcome!


Carnew Emmets Presentation Night.

Carnew Emmets U14 and U16 got together on Friday night the 8th of April in Kenny’s Lounge to celebrate their achievements in the 2015 season. U16s were presented with their A Championship Final medals while U14s were presented with the medals they won in the B Final against St. Pat’s.

A large attendance was present to hear M.C. for the night Brian Doran welcome Casey O’Brien who was on hand to present the medals. Casey had a few words of congratulations and some good advice for the young lads to keep training and at every opportunity to pick up the hurl and practice and, no doubt, they would be the seniors of the future.

Brendan Lawrence of the Wicklow People was present to take photos and music on the night was provided by local entertainer Jimmy Reid. Brian Doran thanked mentors and trainers who had put in a great effort towards the lads’ success. Mick Kenny and staff were thanked for the use of the premises and for the refreshments which were provided to the players. An enjoyable night of music, hot food and crack was had by all who attended.

This year’s season has kicked off on a positive note for all age groups and we hope to have even more to celebrate after the 2016 season.
