The launch night for the Journal is a major community event in the annual parish calendar. The 2019 Journal will be launched on Friday 25 October by Brendan Ryan in the Parochial Hall, Boherlahan, at 8.30pm.

Come along and enjoy the friendship, hospitality and significance of the occasion.

The cost of the Journal is €10; don’t be without one in the family home.
