The Country Air Association is a Church of Ireland organisation that provides financial support to people who would otherwise not be in a position to afford a holiday. The association has been in existence for many years and has helped countless people/families to get away from it all for a few days. The Country Air Association continues to offer financial support to those people who may not necessarily be in a position to plan a short break away. The financial support given by the association can make all the difference to an individual or a family to enable them to plan a short vacation to the seaside or the country to enjoy fresh air and time together, away from the everyday worries that life can very often bring. If you feel you would benefit from such a grant or know of a parishioner who would benefit from such support, please contact the Rector in the strictest confidence and he will forward on a grant application form. To avail of the grant for this summer, completed applications must be with the Country Air Association before the 31st May 2023.
The Rector continues to make contact with parishioners who have been admitted to hospital, wherever possible. Please inform the Parish Office if you or another parishioner or family member is admitted to hospital. We are also happy to include those who so wish in our Parish Prayer List. In the event of a pastoral concern or emergency, the clergy are available on the Parish emergency phone (083 477 1673).
Parish Office opening hours: Monday – Friday 9.30am – 1.30pm.
