A current popular idea in many towns is a pre-Christmas ‘sit-out’, organised by the local clergy of different denominations for charity.
Such an event can also be seen as a positive, visible venture.
For the first time, this venture will be held in Roscrea on Saturday afternoon, December 7th from 12 noon until 3.30pm, when Fr Tom Corbett PP Rev Brian Griffin, Methodist Minister and Adrian Hewson, representing the Church of Ireland, will sit-out in aid of Pieta House, close to the entrance to ‘The Taste of Roscrea’ at the Castle grounds in Castle Street on what will probably be a cold day.
