Pictured here were the congregation at Knockgraffon Mass last Sunday with Fr Michael Kennedy who is leaving the parish of New Inn after 12 years of dedicated service.
A very warm welcome to Fr Bobby Fletcher who will become Parish priest of New Inn/Knockgraffon.
A native of Borris-in-Ossory, County Laois, before this he was Parish Priest in Ballinahinch. He has also worked in Thurles, New port and Ballina.
Among other things Fr Bobby is known far and wide for his contribution to the field of athletics.
Fr Michael Kennedy has been appointed PP of Lattin Cullen.
It has been a busy but happy 12 years for Fr Michael and we bid him farewell to pastures new.
To mark this special farewell, it is envisaged to have a special celebratory mass on Friday, September 20 in New Inn parish church at 7.30pm and afterwards in New Inn Convent hall for light refreshments and chat.
More details nearer the time.
These clerical changes will come into effect this weekend 17/18 August.
