We are asking people NOT TO PARK their cars on the avenues around the Cathedral while attending Mass or other Church ceremonies.

The emergency services need to have access to the Cathedral at all times. One never knows when the services of an Ambulance or Fire Brigade are required and access routes should not be blocked at any time.

Consideration for others is all we ask and leaving the avenues and all yellow boxes free at all times is essential.

We remember in our prayers JOAN DILLON, Cavan, Dublin & Kerry EDWARD JERMYN, Highfield Rd

BELINDA McDONAGH WALSH, Drumgola Woods SEAN CURTIN, Carrickane SR CHRISTINE REILLY, Presentation Convent, Pakistan sister of Phyllis Reilly, Creighan MARY CONNOLLY-HOULIHAN, Castlemanor Village PAT McKEOWN, London brother of Mary McKeown, Harmony Heights & all who died recently.
