Barntown Patron to be followed by a barbecue
The annual Patron is to take place at Barntown on Sunday, August 6, with mass at 2 p.m. in the graveyard.
Barntown curate Fr John Carroll said that as a gesture of gratitude for the immense support that the parish received this year in the mayoral contest, a free barbecue for parishioners will take place on the newly-constructed pitch at the school.
A child-friendly event, there will be free burgers, sausages, ice cream and juice for all who attend. Following refreshments, the pitch and the astro turf pitch will be blessed before being officially opened by Barntown Mayor Tom Dempsey in a short ceremony on the pitch.
