 Message from Bishop Francis. (1 of 2)

The Eight Amendment to the Constitution is a guarantee that our laws will protect mothers and unborn babies. Without ‘the Eighth’ some babies in the womb will be regarded as less valuable than other human lives. A society that treats some human lives as less valuable than others is putting the most vulnerable and dependant at risk. ‘The Eighth’ is about letting live, let’s keep it.
HOLY HOUR FOR THE PROTECTION OF LIFE - In the light of the upcoming Referendum there will be a Holy Hour in Shannonbridge Church on Friday 18th May at 8pm. A quiet time of prayer together. All are welcome.
CLONMACNOIS PRAYER VIGIL in Cluain Chiaráin Prayer Centre -On Frida y 18th of May and every third Friday. Mass at 9pm. Adoration and prayers follow until 2.10am. All welcome. Enquiries to Dave 085-7746763.

With Leah Mannion, Kate Ryan, Daisy Marriot, Roisin Daly, Cathal Daly, Charlie Gibson, Lauren Claffey, Rachael Carty, Darragh Mannion, Darragh Hynes, Eimear Curley, Kelan Claffey, Christina Fallon, Samuel Slevin, Paddy Ryan, Fionn Claffey, Niamh Flannery, Ellen Kennedy, Abigail Kelly, Tadhg Trainor.  Our thanks to all who made is such a special day, preparing grounds & Church, decorations, Music, art, refreshments. A special thank you to all.
OUR LADY OF CLONFERT, I come to you, as one of your children, who will never forget the importance of a woman like you. I come because I believe in you. I come to say thanks for the past and the present and ask you to bless me in the future. You know me, you know how I live and you know my needs. Please help me especially when I need you most. I have problems, worries and anxieties the same as everyone else - help me to cope. So often I would just love to give up when life hurts me and people betray me, but give me the courage never to lose heart. Bless my family, my life and my friends. Help me, no matter what happens to me in life, to believe, to trust and to hope. Our Lady of Clonfert, pray for us.

RACE NIGHT Exciting times ahead for the future of Shannonbridge Gaa Club..  We will hold a fundraising Race night on Saturday 2nd June 2018 in Lukers as we continue our push to raise funds for the development at our sports ground. As you may now know, we have lodged a planning application for development of a multi-purpose fitness studio, a walking track and a state of the art floodlighting system.  Over the coming days and weeks we will be selling cards for people to buy horses and jockeys for the races. We will be presenting our plans and vision for the future to the public on the night in the form of 3D modelling and artistic imagery.  There will be plenty of spot prizes too, in what promises to be a brilliant night.
