BRUREE NOTES 29/10/2012


The vigil mass for All Saints will take place in Rockhill Church at 6.00 pm. The All Saint’s Day Mass will take place in Bruree at 11.30 am. There will be confession before each mass. On All Soul’s Day, November 2nd, there will be masses at Bruree Church at 9.30 am, at Beech Lodge Care Facility at 3.00 pm and at Rockhill Church at 6.00 pm.

Stepping Stones Playschool hopes to be in its new location next week and we wish them the best of luck in their brand new facility. The community playschool will be situated near Bruree National School and Bruree Sportsfield and the committee have been working very hard to have everything in readiness for the new term.  However, they are badly in need of some extra storage for our outdoor equipment (tricycles etc). If anyone can help us out they would greatly appreciate it. As a community playschool, funding is very tight so maybe someone has an old shed or similar which they would be willing to donate. Give 087-1649755 if you can help.


Bruree Juvenile GAA Annual General Meeting will be held in the School on this Friday, November 2nd, at 9.00 pm. All are welcome. We would particularly welcome new members/parents on the night or anyone new to the parish.


A “Pink Party” in aid of Breast Cancer Research will be held on this Saturday, November 3rd at the Central Bar, Bruree. All funds raised on the night through donations and a raffle will go to The Irish Cancer Society. There will be a D.J. to provide the music and finger food as well as great raffle prizes. Wear something pink to show your support!!


Liam Lawton will perform in concert at Ballyagran Church on Friday, December 7th. This is a fundraiser for Ballyagran Camogie Club and tickets are available from club members.
