Sincere Sympathy: We extend our sincere sympathy to the McGrath family, Lower Ballingarry on the untimely death of their son & brother William.  Rosary was held in the family home on Tuesday evening & removal took place from the family home on Wednesday morning to The Church of the Assumption for funeral mass.  A large crowd gathered on both occasions.  William is survived by his parents Billy & Nora, his brothers, sisters, relations, neighbours & friends.  Ar dheis de go raibh sé.


Holy Water

We have purchased a new Holy Water Barrel. It has a tap to make it easy to fill your water bottles.  It is placed in the side porch (Church  Lane Side).  You can get to it from the main body of the Church anytime the Church is open.  Please bring your own bottle. Holy Water renews the grace of our Baptism.
