The 20th issue of the journal will be launched by Maura O’Brien in the Parochial Hall, Boherlahan, on Friday 27 October at 8.30 pm.

Come along for a wonderful night of chat, friendship and recalling memories. We congratulate the committee on another contribution to the recording of the history, events, places and people of this historic parish. The Journal is an ideal present to send to members of the family or the parish who now live in foreign lands.
