Community Mass.
    A great crowd gathered in Toonagh Hall on Sun. night last to celebrate the reopening of the facility, following storm repairs over the past year. It was an opportunity for people of the parish to see the works done and a time to meet and catch up with friends.  Fr. Pat O'Neill celebrated a mass of thanksgiving, and this was followed by tea and goodies, provided by the community and laid on by the Hall Committee.  
The night ended with a sing-song and all agreed it was a lovely end to the Christmas season.

Toonagh Walk for Seeking Vision.
    The annual "Toonagh Walk" takes place this Sunday 11th Jan., 2015 at 12.30p.m.  This walk, which has been held for the past twelve years,  has now become traditional, with many people looking forward to meeting up with people they may have met on the previous walk, especially as they enjoy the tea and home baking afterwards in Toonagh hall where the walk starts and ends.  There are three routes, 10.5k, 5k and 3k and is suitable for all ages and all levels of fitness, indeed, many families have built it into their Christmas seasonal activities.
