Summer Fair raises €21,558

An extraordinary effort by the Summer Fair organisers, stall holders and their large team of helpers for the annual event last Saturday, May 24th, raised €21,558 for parish funds. That is only marginally down on last year’s total of €22,065 when the weather was much better. Thank you to everybody who supported the event in any way.

Countdown to Summer Fair, May 24th

Stallholders are trawling for stock to sell at our Summer Fair on Saturday, May 24th, 10.30am-2.30pm, in the Parish Centre , church and church grounds. Everything, from books and bottles to cakes and clothes (worn only once!) are needed, so start searching your attic and prepare to bake!

Alzheimer’s Tea Day

The Alzheimer’s Tea Day  in St Paul’s Parish Centre takes place this Friday, May 9th, 10.30am-12.30pm.  Your support for this very worthy, annual fund-raising event for the Alzheimer Society of Ireland would be much appreciated.  Donations of home baking and raffle prizes would also be most welcome.
