Supporting your Parish
I think  most parishioners will know that, all over Ireland, Church income(especially income for running the parish– the money coming from parish envelopes and the cash that, up to the coming of Covid 19, was collected in the Offertory Collection) has fallen.  Because people may come to a weekday Mass, who do not come at the weekend, the basket that is left in the church at weekends (envelope or cash offering put in, when entering for, or leaving after, Mass) will also be on a table at weekday Masses.  Naturally, those who contribute at weekend Mass,need not feel obliged to contribute at the weekday Mass.(Fr. Denis O’Mahony)

The Crotta U14 hurlers captured the County League Div 2 title on Sunday afternoon 27th October with a 3-12 to 1-11 win over a gallant Kilmoyley side played in beautiful sunshine at Ballyduff. A very sporting and entertaining game was served up by both teams. Congratulations to all players who were fantastic once again and represented the Green & Red with distension. Thanks to Ballyduff GAA for the use of the facilities and John Ross for officiating. On behalf of the club we would like to thanks most sincerely all the players, parents and coaches who have gone above and beyond this year particularly with the strange and confusing times we live in currently. Crotta U14 coaches would like to thank Marie Beirne (Crotta Covid Officer) for her diligence and hard work in ensuring that the players and coaches had a safe environment in which to train and play all year. Results like this make all the up’s & down’s of coaching underage teams well worthwhile. Enjoy the wins lads.
