We were unable to mark this Special Day in the usual way on Sunday 1st November 2020. Consequently, Canon MacEntee & Fr Dolan blessed the graves in both St Davog’s & St Dympna’s cemetery on a very wet Sunday 22nd November 2020.        

Please take the time to recite the rosary with Canon MacEntee as he dedicates each decade of the rosary to a specific parish cause.
