Parish Link Team

The Parish Link is published every weekend. It includes news item relating to the parish and the community, and details of upcoming events and Liturgies.
Items can be emailed to or dropped into the Parish Office by 5pm on the Thursday of the week of publication. Every item must have contact details.
The Parish Link newsletter was first published in 1993 following an initiative from the Dublin Diocese called ‘Parish Development and Renewal.’ A very committed team of parishioners worked with limited resources to publish it every week and this commitment has continued through the years. We are very proud of all the many hours the team has given to this useful task.
The present team consists of  Trish Close, Niamh O’Neill, Sheila Hallahan and Ann Byrne
