Bailieborough Shamrocks G.F.C.: “A Thank You to all our Donors”

As Bailieborough Shamrocks GAA Club are nearing completion of the upstairs of our Clubhouse, we as a club are forever indebted to the people who donated money from 2006 to get the Clubhouse started. Without this generosity we would never have been able to build, the wonderful Clubhouse we now have. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to each and every person for your amazing generosity.

From us all at Bailieborough Shamrocks GAA Club.

St. Annes: In the easing of restrictions, from Monday last, 25 people are now allowed to attend a Funeral. Hopefully restrictions will be eased soon, so that people may get back to what used to be the normal way of life.

The Bishop has granted permission for the resumption of Baptisms, with a limited attendance confined to parents and godparents.

Mass can be heard on the radio at 107.8FM in the Bailieborough area and 92FM in Shercock.
