Bailieborough News. December 7th 2020. Matthew J. Cullen.

Castle Lake Forest Demense: It is great to see everybody back and enjoying their walks at the Castle Lake. The Cavan Road can be quite dangerous when trying to turn in from the town. So could we ask the area surrounding the entrance be kept free and clear to facilitate anyone who may be trying to get through the gates. If we just take an extra moment before we leave the car to ensure all users can access the area. Thankyou.

Bailieborough Creative Hub: CHRISTMAS SHOPPING… THE SEASON OF GOODWILL ….

Remember when you by local you are supporting your community.

For all your Christmas shopping needs why not check out what our wonderfully talented artists have on offer. With the loss of the Christmas Markets this year it is even more important to support #shoplocal. For more information, please visit the Bailieborough Creative Hub facebook page.

St Annes : Christmas Arrangements: The Bailieborough members of the Pastoral Council have agreed the following arrangements for Christmas at St. Anne’s Church:

Christmas Eve: Mass at 4.00pm: Reserved for Senior Citizens and those with underlying conditions only. No children allowed.

Mass at 8.00pm and Mass at Midnight (12pm).

Christmas Day: Masses at 10.00am and 11.30am.

It is difficult to anticipate how large attendances will be this Christmas. With the restrictions, St. Annes can accommodate no more than 100 families safely at each Mass. Rather than focusing exclusively on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, parishioners are strongly encouraged to consider making their Christmas observance on one of the other days of the Christmas season. In St. Annes there will be Mass on the evening of Saturday 26th December, Sunday, 27th December, Friday, January 1st, Saturday, January 2nd, Sunday, January 3rd, Tuesday, January 5th and Wednesday, January 6th—which all fall within the season of Christmas.

Christmas Confessions: It will not be possible to hold the traditional Christmas penitential service. Parishioners are encouraged to make a sincere Act of Contrition, with a resolve to attend Confessions –when it is possible to do so again.

Masses will be said at usual Bailieborough times and may be viewed on our webcam or heard on our radio system at 107.8FM.

Bailieborough Group of Parishes: Great news! From last Sunday, December 6th  we can meet in our church buildings again. Join us for Sunday Service this week, Mullagh and Shercock 9:30am, Bailieborough 10:45am, Knockbride 12noon. We will also continue online from 10:30am or on YouTube. All welcome. The Covid-19 etiquette will be as before including the use of FACE COVERINGS which highly recommended and encouraged as best practice at Sunday service.

 Easing of Covid Restrictions: With the easing of the Covid restrictions last week, it was great to see people out and about getting ready for the Festive season. Businnesses that had been closed during level 5 have re-opened—at least most of them have—and there is a ‘Buzz’ around the town, that has been missing for quite a while. Let’s hope that these are the first steps to going back to what we previously knew as normal life.

All welcome to join ‘Divine Office’: Evening Prayer on the Killann Parish Facebook page every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings at 7.00pm. Readings for each night will be available for collection in hardcopy form, from St. Anne’s Church, Bailieborough and also online beforehand.

SVP St. Anne’s Conference will be conducting their Giving Sunday collection on Sunday 13th December. Each year our Conference supports circa 200 families and people in need in this community through home visitation and monetary assistance. Currently home visitation is curtailed due to the pandemic and we rely on the telephone and postal services to communicate with parishioners in Bailieborough, Shercock, Knockbride and Tierworker.

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions we haven’t been in a position to have our normal weekly Church collections or avail of the ‘In -Shop’ Christmas collections at Supervalu and Tesco or benefit from the normal support of Vincent’s Shop.

You can donate directly towards the work of our Conference in the following ways:

  • Place your donation in an envelope marked SVP and drop into the Church Parish Office
  • Go to svp.ie/donate
  • Ring 0818 176 176 / 028 9075 0161.

All the funds raised are spent locally helping those who need it most with food, heating and education costs throughout the winter and beyond.

We rely almost entirely on the support of you, our generous parishioners.

We extend best wishes to all for Christmas and 2021.

Christmas Lights are on!!And just like that the town is lit up, beautiful for the Festive Season.

All in the community sincerely thank all the members of the Bailieborough Mid-Summer Festival and Town Events committee and their many helpers, for bringing this much needed ‘lift’ to the town. The committee would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Please support your local business.

Good Luck: The countdown to the big game on Saturday has well and truly begun, with all in the town and surrounding areas waiting in anticipation for this mammoth ‘David v Goliath’ battle! Good Luck and best wishes are extended to the Cavan Senior Football side who will playagainst Dublin in the 2020 All Ireland semifinal on this Saturday evening in Croke Park, December 5th at 5.30pm.  Good Luck to all involved.

The Joy Returns: Well done to Mickey Graham, all the Cavan players, the mentors, backroom staff, sponsors and anyone else who had a contribution to make to the glorious sight of a Cavan captain lifting the Anglo Celt Cup and bringing the trophy back to it’s spiritual home. In these very unusual times, this success has given the county a hell of a ‘lift’ and for the next couple of weeks—at least—the county will be buzzing with a feel-good feeling and people will be happier than they have been for quite a while. So well done to all the people involved, you have done your county proud and the county can now look forward to the semi-final against Dublin on Saturday, December 5th at 5.30pm.

Bailieborough Library: The current Level 5 lockdown unfortunately means that the Libraries in Cavan are closed for the next week, at least. Thanks to the Borrow Box app, that doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on good audio and E-books.

Here is how it works:

• Access the Borrow Box app via the Online Services tab on the Cavan Libraries Website: http://www.cavanlibrary.ie/Default.aspx?StructureID_str=126

• Scroll down and select Borrow Box (eBooks and eAudio Books) and click on ‘Access Borrow Box’.

• When prompted enter your library card number (the 14 digit number on the back of your card) and your 4 digit pin.

• Use the search function on Borrow Box to make your selection or request a title.

• Your book will appear on the device with which you select it and remain there for three weeks, after which it will automatically return to Borrow Box.

If you have trouble accessing Borrow Box or don’t know your pin, feel free to call your local branch or to contact us via our Facebook pages. Our doors may be closed but we are ready and happy to help you in any way we can.

Christmas Cheer: In these very unusual and trying times, it was great to see the members and friends of the Bailieborough Mid-Summer Festival and Town Events out and about last weekend getting the Christmas Lights and fixtures all ready for the Festive season. This year—more than any other year—the entire community will need a ‘lift’ to see us through the long dark days ahead and it will be through the efforts of these local people that we will have something to look forward to and enjoy, so a big ‘Thank You’ to all the people who have put in the hard work to help our town. 

Bailieborough Swimming Pool and Leisure Centre: Update: We at Bailieborough Swimming and Leisure Centre CLG hope that everyone is safe and well at this time.

We are absolutely thrilled that we have recently been successful in getting approval for grant funding for €122,500. We will continue to work with Cavan County Council and Government agencies to draw down this funding as soon as we can. In light of this good news, we would like to express our sincere thanks to all our public representatives who worked with us to achieve this funding. We want to let the public know that the Board are now working on plans to reopen the centre as soon as possible in early 2021 so please keep posted on the centre’s website and on social media for further developments.

Our General Manager, Mary McConnell, who has worked at the Leisure Centre since its opening has decided to take some personal time away from the Leisure Centre. The Board will seek to find a replacement manager to fill this post. In the meantime, we send Mary our best wishes and we look forward to seeing her back at the Centre sometime in the future.

For your continued support and patience, we sincerely thank you.
