  www.homeless.ie :   Coffee Evening/ Morning and Cake Sale in the Parish Centre  on  Sat. and Sun,  16th and 17th November   2013:   A message from Una to all Marlay Guild Members:

“Many thanks to you for your wonderful work over the weekend . The event was a huge success due to the your generosity, effort and enthusiasm. While its main purpose was to raise a decent sum for Br. Kevin we also succeeded in generating a great feeling of goodwill in the parish and a strong spirit of cooperation in the guild.  Joan’s seanfhocail of last Thursday was very apt – “Ni neart go cur le ceile”  

Best wishes,  Una”

Una Connaughton,

Our President
