Thought for the week

 A little child wrote in her diary in a Nazi death camp -

From tomorrow on, I shall be sad

From tomorrow on - Not today - Today I will be glad.

And every day, no matter how bitter it may be,

I shall say, from tomorrow on, I shall be sad - Not today.



All of us share the serious responsibility and privilege of trying to ensure that children grow up in an environment where they are treasured, respected and loved and are free from danger of any form of abuse. The Diocese of Killaloe values and promotes the involvement of its young people and children in the life of the community. We want our young people to be respected and, included and have a voice. We aim to create an environment where children are confident they are safe. The Diocese is committed to working with the statutory authorities in the task of safeguarding children.For more information visit the Killaloe Diocese website at

“Children are amongst God’s greatest gifts. They are to be loved and nurtured by parents and by each and everyone of us. We have a most solemn and sacred duty to keep our children safe from harm and to cherish their well being.”   (NBSCCC training manual)

VILLAGE SPRING CLEAN: We had a good turn out on the two nights for the recent litter pick in the village and environs.  Thank you to all who participated.  We collected upwards of 60 bags of rubbish.  Refreshments were served in Morty’s bar and it was a nice treat after all the hard work. We would ask people to continue the good work and pick litter as they see it.  Also, we would ask householders to do any painting and planting early so that we will be well ready for the Tidy Towns judging.
