Knock Pilgrimage

In a letter to all the parishes Bishop Dennis Brennan invites parishioners to join him on the annual Ferns Diocesan Pilgrimage to Knock Shrine which will take place on Sunday, July 7 2013. He writes “Each pilgrimage centre has its own character – Knock holds a special place in the hearts of all Irish people, as and ongoing moment of encounter between ourselves and the Divine.”

Tidy Towns

As the Tidy Towns Adjudicators will be in the area shortly, the Group would encourage everyone to make an effort to keep their area clean and tidy. Now is the time to paint that wall and to tidy up the garden. Please don’t forget the bit outside of your property that we just couldn’t get to this year. Every little help is appreciated.

Wexford Day

To celebrate Wexford Day on the 23 June at 2.30, ‘The Village Park’ (incorporating Kirwan’s Garden, Peter’s Garden and the Landfill Area), members of the Group will be available to show people around the Park and to discuss future developments. It is hoped that the first of the wheelchair accessible looped walks will be completed by then. Entrance will be via the Memorial Park.
