Bailieborough News. June 21st 2021 . Matthew J. Cullen.

Church Re-Opening: St. Anne’s Church, Killann will re-open for Mass next Saturday evening at 8.30pm. The first stage of the work on the Church has now been completed: insulating the attic, boxing in pipes and remedial work on areas of dampness in the walls. The next stage is internal and external painting. For various reasons, that cannot happen immediately, so in the meantime, the Church will re-open. Hopefully the Church will be fully decorated by September.
