Award For Holycross Book

The safe return of the sacred relics of the True Cross has brought great relief and satisfaction to the parishioners of Holycross and Ballycahill, as well as to everyone who esteems the abbey.

The safe return of the sacred relics of the True Cross has brought great relief and satisfaction to the parishioners of Holycross and Ballycahill, as well as to everyone who esteems the abbey.

An additional source of satisfaction is the news that Willie Hayes’s book, Holycross, The Awakening of the Abbey, has been chosen as the Tipperary Book of the Year 2011 by the organisers of the annual Tipperariana Book Fair that is held on the second Sunday of February in Fethard.

As the first printing of the book last November quickly sold out, a second printing was needed.

Soft cover copies are now available again in Holycross Gift Shop, in Bookworm Bookshop, Liberty Square, and in Easons in Dunne’s Stores Shopping Centre
