Saint Oliver Plunkett
1 July

Oliver Plunkett came from an Irish noble family in Co. Meath. He studied for the priesthood and was ordained in Rome in 1654. From then until 1669, when he was appointed Archbishop of Armagh, he was Professor of theology.

Soon after his appointment to the See of Armagh, he was suspected of treason because of secretly practising as priest. He was tried in Dundalk in 1679, and moved to Newgate prison in London, where he was convicted and found guilty of treason against the state by ‘promoting the Catholic faith’.

He was condemned to a most cruel and public execution at Tyburn. He was the last Catholic to die for the faith at Tyburn and the first of the Irish martyrs to be beatified.

Each of us is capable of doing some healing, because we have eyes that can see, ears that can hear, tongues that can speak,

hands that can touch, and above all a heart that can love.

Lord, make us instruments of your healing power.

Where there is hatred,

let us sow love.

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

and where there is sadness, joy. Amen.

Fr. Flor McCarthy SDB

I will visit the Sick & Housebound on Thursday & Friday of the coming week at the usual times.

Fr. Mulligan

Prayers are requested for the repose of Tommy Cummons, Carracastle & Ballina who died suddenly. Also for John McAndrew, Curradrish, who died suddenly on Friday last. May they rest in peace. We offer our deepest sympathy to the bereaved.


With the closing of the school for the summer holidays we bade farewell to two of the staff, Ms Mairead Kelly & Ms Olivia Hegarty. Best wishes to both teachers for the future.

In September we will welcome to the school a newly qualified teacher, Ms Michelle Tolan, Curradrish, who is a past pupil. She will serve on the staff for about six months, while Ms Emer Loftus is on maternity leave. We will also be welcoming back Ms Nuala O’Brien, who has been on maternity leave.
