One Swallow - Never made the Summer the old saying goes but we are glad to report that the one swallow has arrived which we are delighted to welcome since they have made the long journey back to us bringing high hopes of Summer weather.
Reports tell us that the reason they are late this year is that the arctic weather delayed them in their flight and in their intelligence they waited for the better day, which we hope has also arrived.
Our Lady’s Sodality - The annual May Procession which occurs each year after the First Holy Communion in Knockavilla Donaskeigh will take place on Sunday, 12th May.
