Preserving our heritage sites
The Co. Council have been contacted on the need to preserve our heritage sites especially in the light of the new road coming through the parish. Two cases have been highlighted; the ring fort at Knockbrack and the Browne Burial Vault at Rehins. The Council is to discuss the preservation of St. Brigid's Church ruins in Kilbree and the provision of a plaque at the Ambush Monument in Cloggernaugh which will translate the Irish inscription on the Celtic Cross there. For more information, contact the Heritage and Environment community group.

And Our Work is Done
May God support us,
All the day long.
'Til the shadows lengthen,
And the evening comes.
And the busy world is hushed,
And the fever of life is over,
And our work is done.
Then, in His mercy, May He grant us,
A safe lodging,
A Holy rest,
And peace at last.
