Askamore Remembers Our Loved Ones.

A folder with plastic pockets in it will be placed at the back of the church in Askamore.

Each family can insert a page in the folder to remember their deceased family member.

You can put in whatever you like, for example, a photo, memory card, date of death, place of interment etc. It will be laid out in alphabetical order,  so place your insert under your family initials, i.e. B for Byrne, D for Doyle etc. Feel free to put in for people who may have no family left in the area.

The page could be opened on the day of your loved ones anniversary if you wish to do so. This will not only let people remember but will also be a great help to future generations.
