Trócaire wish to thank you for your continuing generosity and support of our annual fundraising campaign during Lent. Your support is bringing new hope to the lives of women, men and children facing injustice and poverty. Thanks to your generous support, communities in many countries now have the opportunity to install water pumps and irrigation systems. The provision of water for drinking, cooking, cleaning and farming is providing families with the means to work their way out of poverty and to lead lives with dignity and potential.  Without your ongoing support the work that we do simply could not happen. For this we are truly grateful.

Irish Cancer Society: Thank you for your support of our recent church gate collection where €173.65 was collected.  Our heartfelt thanks to all who contributed.
