The local G.A.A. Club will hold its weekly lotto draw in Toonagh on that night.   There will also be a raffle for some festive prizes which have been donated by people in support of the Hall on the night.

The Diocese Of Killaloe is made up of 58 parishes grouped into 12 clusters. It stretches from Loop Head in Co Clare to the foothills of the Sliabh Bloom Mountains in Co Laois. The parish is the fundamental unit of our Church’s structure and is the place where most people have their first experience of the Church. All parishes in the Killaloe Diocese are defined by geographical boundaries. 

Most of our parishes have a long and ancient history. The youngest parish in the Diocese is St Senan’s Parish in Shannon which was established in the late 1960’s as the new town grew up around the Airport and Industrial Estate. The place where a person resides and the faith community with which they most identify is generally their parish. Many of life’s key moments are celebrated in the context of the local parish.

In recent years the decline in numbers of clergy has highlighted the need for parishes to work more closely together in order to provide the best pastoral services for the people. Under the leadership of Bishop Willie Walsh the process of clustering began. A cluster is a group of neighbouring parishes who work more closely together to ensure that the people of a particular area have access to the pastoral care that they need. Initially this began with increased co-operation of the clergy but it has developed in recent years to include greater collaboration between Parish Pastoral Councils.

Diocese Of Killaloe Listening Process: The Diocese of Killaloe has been engaged in a process of Listening throughout the diocese over the past year. The listening has taken place at Cluster Level with Pastoral Councils and other groups and the co-ordinating group has collated the results. This group would now like all interested people to have a say in the way they would like to see things happening in the future in our diocese. If you would like to offer an opinion you can do so by logging on to the diocesan website and complete the online survey or by post to Ms Marie O’Connell-Quinn, Administrator, Pastoral Planning Office, 45 Garden View, Garraun na Hille, Clarecastle Co Clare. There are leaflets available after Masses outlining the Listening and Reflecting Process. Please take one and have your say!
