Beautiful Baby Boy

We send our warm congratulations to Clare and Henry Power who recently welcomed their new baby son Dylan into the world. Dylan is very lucky to have big brother David ready to show him the ropes and having recently starting playschool himself he will have lots to teach his little baby brother. We wish this lovely little family the very best for the future.

Recent Death

We extend our deepest sympathy to Gabrielle Power of Countrylife, Kilmeaden on the recent death of her father. Martin Power was a resident of Ballingarry, Kill and was a hardworking, family man. We offer our thoughts and prayers to Gabrielle, her mother Joan and all the family and we pray that Martin now rests in peace.

Church News

With masses cancelled and everything feeling strange our parish now has a new parish Facebook page “parish of Portlaw/Ballyduff” . I must say that is a really wonderful idea. Inspirational thoughts etc are posted but Fr. Richard also live streams daily mass at 10am from Portlaw and alternates between Ballyduff and Portlaw at the weekend. This is a very comforting and reassuring service to have and I congratulate all who were involved in setting it up. Join up and get involved on the page and keep our community connected.
