St. Patrick’s Church

Statues in St. Patrick’s Church have been removed and will be fully refurbished and restored like new!

 

We will also commence work on storm-glazing the Stained-glass windows in the Church.

 

Six windows will be storm glazed and four will have their current storm glazing amended.

This work will protect the wonderful Stained glass and preserve it for many years to come.

 

We have been advised that the cost for this work will be approximately € 9,600 (€1,100 per window for the six and €750 each for the four to be amended).  With this in mind, we would welcome individuals, families or businesses who would like to sponsor/donate towards part or all of this work.

 

If you would like to sponsor/donate to this project, envelopes are available beside the Newsletters. If you prefer you can donate by bank transfer using the Bank details on the left.  If you chose to donate by Bank Transfer, please put ‘Stained Glass windows’ in the reference.

 

 

St. Mary’s Church

Following inspection on Wednesday, we are waiting to hear from Roofer and Joiner regarding work on the Roof and Skylights in St. Marys Church.   Depending on their Report, we are hoping to work on the Roof in May.

 

As advised, to facilitate this work, it will be necessary to close St. Mary’s church for two or three weeks.

 

While the work is taking place, all Masses, funerals, weddings will take place in St. Patrick’s Church.

 

We will have more information closer to the time.

 

Thank you sincerely for your continued support which enables us to continue Renovating our parish churches.
