Pat and Mary Donnelly retired during the summer from their ministry as Boherlahan Church Sacristans.

They have given sterling service over many years. Their courtesy, kindness and friendship have been a blessing for us all. They have been so faithful, committed and generous with their time over all those years.

From the bottom of our hearts we say thanks for the many gifts they shared with us. They made a wonderful contribution to life around the church and their warm friendship and positive presence will be missed.

We wish them both well for the future and we assure them of our continued friendship and appreciation.

At a special ceremony after Mass on 17th September 2017, they were honoured, and given presentations from the parish.

We are delighted to mark the occasion with this set of photographs taken by Tom Ryan.
