A number of matters were discussed at the last Parish Council meeting –
(1) Election of New Parish Council. It was decided that Paddy O’Dwyer would print off forms and they would be handed out by present Parish Committee members to people who would be interested in sitting on the future Parish Council.
(2) The Finances of the Hall. The Parochial Hall is run on a very tight budget. Paddy O’Dwyer is in charge of the upkeep and the day-to-day running of the Hall. It is a constant job of keeping the heating, electrical work and fire protection equipment in order. It is a wonderful facility to have in our parish where many a good social occasion is held.
(3) Church Gate Collection. This will be held outside the Church on November 25th and 26th to assist in the running of our Parish Christmas Party which is held on the first Sunday in December. Every Christmas approximately 100 people attend this Christmas Party. Mass, a very good hot meal, bingo, storytelling and dancing takes place on this Sunday, and any volunteers to assist in running the event will be greatly appreciated .
