Irish Augustinians Mid-Chapter

Last week the Irish Augustinians held their Mid-Chapter at the Emmaus Centre, Swords.

The Mid-Chapter is an opportunity for the Irish Province to take stock of our present situation in Ireland and to plan and build for the future.  A future that most certainly will include all our wonderful and loyal patrons and parishoners.

Apart from the obvious presentations and meetings, a large part of the gathering was to meet, socialise with other friars, and generally enjoy each others company in a relaxed and prayerful setting. There was even a sing-song too!


New GAA Referee in Our Ranks

Congratulations to Bro. Stephen on his successful completion of the GAA Referee course. 

Bro. Stephen, along with many others, were presented with their certificates by the the GAA Uachtaran, John Hogan, at Croke Park recently.

We wish them all the very best in their refereeing careers!!
