The Club cannot emphasise enough the importance of our members promoting the Club Lotto among family, friends and work colleagues. The Covid-19 restrictions have seriously hampered our fundraising and income. The Lotto is now the critical and only source of funds for the Club. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.


As we are in another extended period of lockdown and restrictions, people are understandably incredibly anxious, worried, and finding it more difficult to cope. This is particularly true for the more vulnerable in society – among them, cancer patients, their families, and carers.
At Recovery Haven Kerry, we want to reassure you that we are still here for you. While taking every precaution advised, we are here to offer emotional support and practical help to those affected by cancer, their families, or carers.  While much of our group and therapy work is currently on hold due to Covid 19, we are still offering phone support, counselling, and a range of online classes (Stretch and balance, pilates, stress management, look good feel better programme, men’s support group and Cancer Thrive and Survive 6 -week self-management programme) throughout Level 5.
So, if you or someone you know needs support, email: or phone 066 7192122

Guidelines regarding Funerals from the bishops of the dioceses of the Cashel Province (Cashel, Cloyne, Cork, Kerry, Killaloe, Limerick & Waterford)
1. Public health guidelines are: attendance at funerals is to be restricted to 10.
2. As recommended in our statement last March, there should be no removal to the church the evening before.
3. People not attending the funeral liturgy should avoid congregating outside the church building or around the hearse.  For the sake of the great majority trying to keep to the public health guidelines, we ask people, difficult as it is, not to approach the bereaved in the church grounds or cemetery to sympathize.
4. As per the public health guidelines regarding social and family gatherings, there should be no wakes or large gatherings for prayers in the house of the deceased nor gatherings in cemeteries.
5. Support for the bereaved can be expressed through social media as an alternative to attending the funeral. Often it is possible to link to a local church for a funeral ceremony via a webcam/Facebook Live.
We invite people to pray for the deceased and family of the deceased, in their own homes at the time of the funeral Mass.
May our deceased loved one’s rest in peace and may the bereaved be comforted.
Trust in Christ’s love and care and his victory over death for us all. Our Lady health of the sick, pray for us.
First Communion and Confirmation
Parents and their children, as well as teachers, are wishing to know when these celebrations will take place this year.  That question cannot be answered at the present time because of the uncertainty linked with the Covid 19 crisis.  (Fr. Denis O’Mahony)
Multiple Intentions at weekend Masses
I like to remind parishioners, now and then, that when there is more than one Mass intention in the Mass (as on this Sunday) the priest who celebrates the Mass keeps one Mass offering (stipend) and the offering given for another intention (or more than one) is/are forwarded to the Diocesan Office to be put in the Diocesan Fund for Sick and Retired Priests. (D. O’M.)
