Church News, Community Centre and Ballyduff GAA

Church News
We are all delighted to return to our weekend masses. There will be two masses each Saturday at 10am and 7.30pm and on Sunday morning at 9.30am. There are still some dates available during the month of December if you want to book an anniversary mass for a loved one. You can do so by contacting myself on 087 9838392.


Birthday Boy
Congratulations and best wishes to John Mackey Ross Kilmeaden who recently celebrated his 65th birthday. We hope that he had a wonderful day and I’m sure his loving wife Maria made sure he was spoiled on his special day along with their children and beloved grandchildren. Of course John and Maria’s marriage is a very successful Waterford and Limerick Union so I hope there won’t be too much disharmony on the 13th.

Community Centre
Our local community centre committee are delighted to announce that they have recently renovated the ladies toilets in the old hall. The area has been completely tiled and fitted with new cubicles including one which is wheelchair accessible. This work was funded mainly by a grant administered by the HSE from National Lottery funding. They are also very grateful to our major sponsor Donal Hickson, Centra Kilmeaden and also for sponsorship received from Ballyduff Youth Drama and Deirdre Giani. They have also been fortunate enough to also receive a grant from Waterford City and County Council under the Community Enhancement Programme to allow us to renovate the old gents toilets. This work is currently underway and will be to the same standard as the ladies. This work would not be possible without the generosity of the sponsors and the committee really appreciate it.
The committee now look forward to the return of all the activities in the community hall when COVID 19 restrictions are lifted.


Ballyduff GAA
Everybody in Ballyduff GAA and indeed everyone in the community are so excited and full of hope for the fast approaching All Ireland Final. We are all so proud of local lad Calum Lyons who has given us so many brilliant displays of hurling and put his heart and soul into each game. This team has given us all a lift in a year when we needed a lift. Our support and encouragement is right behind you Calum and your teammates. We wish you the very best of luck and enjoy every minute of this very special occasion for you and your very proud family.
