The Boherlahan-Dualla website has already become a significant archive of local news and events, photographs, Parish Newsletters and more, since it began in 2015. Sincere thanks to everyone who has helped the project to date. We need to ask for others to support us by telling their friends at home and abroad about the site, by joining the website team, or by sending in material to the firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are now integrated with Facebook. New articles will also be automatically posted to our Facebook page. We invite you to follow us at www.facebook.com/boherlahandualla where you can share and like your favourite articles.
Our “News” panel has been expanded. There is also a new panel “Promoting Local Initiative” which we encourage local businesses, clubs, other groups and individuals to make good use of. Further improvements to the website are underway.
The picture galleries are a great place to be reminded of parish happenings during the year gone by. As well as enjoying them yourself, why not bring them to the attention of friends and relations at home and abroad?
The email@example.com asks all parish organizations to use the website to announce their upcoming events. Reports and photos afterwards are also very welcome. Thanks to everyone who sends in the material which sustains the website.
The website carries notices of forthcoming events, photo galleries of community life, an archive of Parish Newsletters, and much more besides.
Every week events are happening which are of interest to local people and to those far from home. We depend on you to send in material and, over time, to form a record of community life. For example, old prints come up very well when scanned. There must be many old photos in drawers around the parish which can be lent to Liam Ó Duibhir, who will return them safely and promptly. We welcome any contribution, long or short on whatever topic you choose, from people of every age. Parishioners, at home and abroad, are only a click away from this link to home. Please remind your friends about us.
Local businesses are invited to avail of the free advertising service. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
