Results of the Diocesan and Parish Listening Process

Yes, you will recall taking part in the Research Project in the Murroe/ Boher Parish under Fr. Martin Hayes late 2017 and throughout 2018 in the remainder of the diocese. The future of the church at parish and diocesan levels was the subject of the study. The results are published and ready for discussion in our parish. However, due to the advent of exams and the holiday season, the first meeting to do this will take place on Monday 9th September in Muintir Na Tíre Hall, Murroe at 7.30 p.m. This is the preliminary announcement. Further reminders will follow throughout the month of August. We are now witnessing an era of rapid change concerning matters of faith and pastoral administration taking place during a period of unprecedented societal change at home and abroad. Your interest in and attention to this ground-breaking research will be much appreciated. Please feel free to talk to Fr. Loughlin Brennan P.P. for any further information you need. Your parish needs your participation.

Boher Community Development Association: The upgrade work of our Community Centre was completed with the assistance of EU “Leader Funding” through Ballyhoura Development CLG. Along with the grant aid, the Community Development Association used its own funds to pay the remaining 25% of the project cost so the upgrade was completed debt-free without the need to obtain any external funding.

In order to replenish the Community Development Association funds to enable us to continue to run our community centre and in order to facilitate future enhancements to be made to our community hub, our Finance Project Team has decided to run a 5-month confined draw from July to November 2019 with a contribution of €20 per month (making a total contribution of €100 per draw participant). There will be generous cash prizes each month with a bonus draw at the end for all participants who have paid the total contribution of €100.  Members of the Community Development Association will call with a leaflet to every house in the area seeking your inclusion in the draw. We would greatly appreciate your assistance in supporting this fund raising venture.

Boher Community Development Annual Charity Cycle was a great success raising €3,900 which will be presented to Cliona’s Foundation at a later date.

Sincere thank you to all who participated in the cycle, the Marshals, Stewards, Irish Red Cross Ambulance Service, John Kennedy, Dunnes Stores and the ladies committee for providing refreshments after the event.

Boher Community Development Association will hold its annual Parish Fun Day Sunday 23 June from 1.30pm at the GAA pitch, Boher

Murroe Boher Camogie: Well done to our U12 team who lined out against Kilmallock on Thursday in the fourth round of their non-competitive league. Next Thursday the girls will travel to St. Ailbes for their fifth game in the series. It’s great to see so many games being played by our young members. Best of luck to our U8s who travel to Bruff to play in the first of their blitz series for the year. The girls will play against teams from Bruff, Cappamore and Galbally. Best of luck to all our players and management teams in their upcoming games
