Annacurra notes week July 26th


Parish Journal
After the year we’ve had, and indeed are still having, it is a good time to create a new parish journal. There are events that we want to commemorate and to remember.

I  think the best way to think of a parish journal is to imagine someone reading it in thirty, fifty, or a hundred years.  What would you like them to see and read about?  We owe it to the next generations to record.
Due to GDPR and Data Protection, it will be a different journal than previous ones, but it can still be one that we can be proud of.
I would encourage any clubs, societies, and organisations in the parish/village to get involved and write a report on their events and activities.

All contributions are welcome – the more the merrier.  Articles are welcome. Please get in touch if  you need any clarification.  Help will be given if anyone needs it for typing and editing.

I want to thank Kathleen McAllister, Marguerite Shannon, and Padraig Healy for being willing to be involved in the project.

Closing date for submissions will be August 10th and we will hopefully have it ready for the end of the year.
