We extend our sincere sympathy to the family, relatives and friends of Joseph McGrath, Knockmore, Mark Dempsey, Croom, Colman Danaher, Killacolla, and Mary Geary, Kilmallock, who died recently.


Plans are in train to provide defibrillators in the parish. The drive to raise funds for the defibrillators starts with a church gate collection at Rockhill and Bruree on this coming weekend, August 7th/8th. Locally based defibrillators with a network of people in the area trained in their effective use have been proved to be lifesavers. In the case of a heart attack, early intervention is vital and defibrillators based in Rockhill and Bruree makes this possible. Your generous support would be greatly appreciated. It may save a life and that life could be yours!

The wooden water pump in Garrouse has long been a local landmark and an intrinsic part of the heritage of the area. The pump has been kept in good condition by the care and attention lavished on it by Frank Finn. Well done Frank.
