Thought for the Week:

‘The door of faith is always open for us.    To enter through that door

is to set out on a journey that lasts a lifetime’       (Pope Benedict XVI)

Mission for the Imeall Bóirne Parishes will be held from the 1st November to the 7th November. It will be based in Corofin.

Ruan Gymkhana   The annual gymkhana will take place this Sun. June 8th and it will host seven qualifiers for National Championships in showjumping on the day.   In conjunction with the Gymkhana a Family Fun Day will take place at the same venue as a fundraiser for repairs to Toonagh Hall.   Among the activities on offer will be a cake sale at 12 noon, "guess the weight of the bull", face and nail painting, wellie throwing, children's fancy dress competition and more fun and games.  The organisers will spare no efforts to make this a fun-filled afternoon, and it is hoped the community will support the event.

Tidy Towns: Adjudication in the Tidy Towns Competition is on-going at present. We would urge everyone in the Community to maintain all areas of the village and approaching roads and to be vigilant regarding tidiness, weed and litter control.

Irish Heart Church Gate Collection:  €199.00 Collected. Thanks to all who contributed.

Clarecare Annual Church gate Collection will take place next weekend 14th and 15th June. Clarecare’s family and childcare activities throughout the County depend on the support and generosity of the community. Your help and support is very much appreciated.
