Rosary for Lent – The rosary is recited each Wednesday evening at 6:50pm and each Sunday morning at 10:20am before Mass in Corduff & Raferagh. Consider making that extra effort for Lent to pray together with and for our local community; especially remembering our loved ones gone before us who belonged to a generation of people who valued their faith, with prayer nourished in the Mass & Rosary.

The Mighty Tess O’Connor has expressed a heartfelt THANK YOU to all her loyal supporters, helpers, shops and to all who made such generous donations.  You were all part of yet another very successful fundraiser.  This year’s St. Brigid’s Crosses project generated a grand total of €3270 for Carrick Cancer.  Well done to Tess and all who assisted her. Tess was hard at work, weeks in advance to make sure everyone who wanted a cross was not disappointed.


Bowls – The Oriel Zone team will return to Corduff Raferagh Community Centre on Saturday 2nd March to take place in the All Ireland Semi Final.  Best wishes to all involved.

Construction work has commenced on the structure which will hold the new lift shaft at the Centre.  Over the next few weeks there will be some disruption to the carpark and to the availability of rooms etc.  We ask for your patience and cooperation as we try our best to facilitate all users with as little disruption as possible.  We ask that all users of the carpark use extreme caution when using the car park.  During normal working hours, the entry to the Handball Alley may on occasions be temporarily blocked (e.g. when moving equipment or plant and machinery), on such occasions, for your safety please consult with the Site Manager before proceeding into the facilities.
