Congratulations to the Junior A football team who had a good win over Shillelagh/Coolboy on Saturday November 13th. The club would like to extend their sympathies to the Moules family on the recent passing of Eamonn Moules. We also extend sympathy to the O’Neill family on the recent passing of Richie and to the Burton family on their recent bereavement. 

Active Retirement

We are approaching the new season of Active Retirement.  Due to the covid situation we have decided to postpone the Christmas Lunch until sometime in the New Year.

In the meantime we are meeting up each Wednesday morning from next week for a leisurely walk, meeting at the Pavilion after the 10.30am mass.

All are welcome to come along.  Also the Pottery Classes are starting up again soon. Time and Dates are to be decided depending on the numbers. 

Christmas Cards

Christmas cards are available for sale at the Church after all Masses each weekend, they will also be available from Philip Doyle, Camilla Sheridan and Hugh Doyle.  The cards cost €2 each and three for €5.  Mass cards, Mass bouquets and Get Well cards are also available.

Aughrim Community Group

The Aughrim Community Works Group, Volunteers and the CE scheme workers have been cleaning the leaves from the pavements and doing maintenance work in the Park. 

We are continuing to cooperate with Irish Water to resolve the sewage problem at the park and the pumping station on the Rednagh road.  We will be purchasing new Life Buoys for the Lake. We hope to have the replacements completed within the next month.
