St Mary of the Rosary Church has closed from this Monday, June 29, until the end of August to allow work on Phase I of the restoration project.
During this time, the 8am Mass each weekday will be in Nenagh Pastoral Centre; the 10am Mass each weekday will switch to St John the Baptist in Tyone; all weekend Masses will be in Tyone, as will all funerals and baptisms.
Phase I includes rewiring, painting, draft exclusion and an upgrade of the lighting system and the heating system.
Meanwhile, one of Nenagh’s best loved priests, Fr Dan, celebrated his 99th birthday on June 28 in the St Columban Retirement Home in Navan. Fr Dan served in Nenagh for over 20 years.
