Election of Pastoral Council.
Parishioners are asked to return the nomination paper which they recently received, where they may nominate themselves or someone from their own area to serve on the Pastoral Council of the parish.
This may be done by putting it with the weekly collection envelope or posting or dropping it in to Fr. Pat O'Neill, Ruan. 

Recent Death.
There was a sense of shock and disbelief in the parish last week at the sudden death of Ralph Cullinan, Ballybrody, Fountain, at his home.   Ralph worked for many years as a bus driver with C.I.E., later Bus Eireann. until his retirement six years ago.  He and his wife, Pauline, farmed their lands in Ballybrody and reared their family of two boys and a girl there. 
Large crowds turned out to pay their respects and support the family over the days of the funeral, with removal taking place from  Daly's Funeral Home to St. Tola's Church, Dysart, and, following requiem mass, burial in Drumcliffe Graveyard.
Ralph is survived by his wife, Pauline, sons Ralph and Caimin, daughter Karol, son in law, Dermot Frawley, two grandchildren, brothers P.J., Michael and Tony, sisters in law, extended family and friends.
