MARY'S MEALS CAVAN WANTS YOUR COPPERS. If you have any 1c, 2c, or 5c at home that are piling up, we want them. We will also take any old coins, foreign coins, sterling coins that are no longer needed or useful to you. Mary's Meals provides a daily meal to the world's most vulnerable children in their place of education at a cost of just 9c per meal. Thus, the donation of any coppers or other unwanted coins is potentially life changing for an individual child. We have recently become involved in a school feeding programme in Yemen, providing meals to over 4,000 children - your coppers matter. Please contact Caoimhe at 0863745756 if you wish to donate and collection will be arranged. Further information on the charity can be found at

Holy Water is available in the Cathedral. Ask Maura, the Sacristan.

Volunteers needed for Daffodil Day Friday March 25th

We are delighted to say that Daffodil Day will be back on the streets this year.

A large number of volunteers are needed so that the whole day is covered (from 9am - 7pm approx) throughout the town. If you could give 2 hrs of your time for such a worthy cause it would be greatly appreciated. Cancer is something that has touched most of us one way or another. With GDPR regulations, perhaps you can contact me directly this year to volunteer even if you have been a regular collector in the past. I will do my best to accommodate your preferred time slot, but a little flexibility would be appreciated.

Kind Regards Martina Lee Boyle Daffodil Day Co-Ordinator 086 378 2928
