On the morning and afternoon of Tuesday 2 June 2020, the priests of the parish made a pilgrimage of prayer from St Mary’s Cemetery and on to Dunmoe, Donaghmore, St Finian’s, the famine burial ground at Our Lady’s Hospital, Cannistown, Old Athlumney and concluding at the Crypt at St Mary’s Church.

We prayed for all who are buried in the Cemeteries of the Parish and blessed
all the graves.

We are grateful to all who maintain our cemeteries 
and we wish to thank all who tend the graves with loving care.

Go mbeirimid beo ar an am seo arís!
May we all be alive at the same time next year!

As our gatherings at family graves in early July will not be possible this year, we invite you to share this link with relations and friends who normally travel home for Cemetery Devotions every year.
