The community council thank Ballyporeen church choir and the Tipperary gospel choir, also Niamh O’Reilly and Katie Brown for the wonderful music and song in the recent concert in the Church of the Assumption. E1,420 was raised. We very much appreciate your support.


Deepest sympathies to the Crotty family, Skeheenarinky, on the loss of Eugene. Eugene sadly passed away in Leeds last week after an illness he bore so bravely. Funeral mass on Saturday, April 27, 3pm in Ballyporeen. Burial of his ashes will take place afterwards in St. Mary’s cemetery. May he rest in peace.


Congrats to Mark and Sarah McLoughlan on the birth of their son Noah, a brother for Isabella and Isaac, also to Johnny and Amanda O’Brien on the birth of baby Ellie May, a sister for Lorcan. Best wishes to the 43 children who will receive the sacrament of confirmation this Thursday in Ballyporeen at 11am.
