St. Anne’s Church: Renovations Update

The renovations to the Church and the Parish Centre have been progressing well over the past few weeks. The blockwork on the extension to the Sacristy has almost been completed and the chimney at the back of the Church which was causing dampness in the Sacristy and the Sanctuary area of the Church has been demolished. In the Parish Centre, the basement area has been stripped and new floors have been laid to accommodate a new meeting room, office and storage space. On the ground floor, the old sitting room is being converted into a meeting space and the kitchen and toilets are being re-arranged to accommodate public use. The chimneys which were allowing water to access the building have been demolished and new ones built.

Over the coming weeks work will begin on the flat roofs which are in a very poor state. At present, there is at least 2 to 3 inches of water trapped between the insulation and the concrete ceilings. Work will also begin shortly on the interior of the Sacristy and the Church.

Unfortunately, because of the nature of the works involved, and the poor condition of the interior, the Church Area Finance Committee have been advised that the Church will have to close during the summer for three to four weeks, from Monday, June 26th. This period will enable the pews to be removed and the painting, electrical and flooring works to proceed unhindered.

During this time, the Community School Board of Management have kindly given permission to use the Assembly Hall for Saturday evening and Sunday morning Masses. The Community Centre will be used for week-day Masses and in the event of Funerals, St. Anne’s Church, Killann, St. Patrick’s Church, Tierworker and St. Brigid’s Church, Tunnyduff, will be available.

Bailieborough Courthouse and Castle Lake Demense: Updates

The Bailieborough Development Association have secured €100,000 funding under Rural Economic Development Zone for the refurbishment of the offices in the Courthouse. This space will be available for shared work space to start-ups and small businesses.

We are in the tendering process for architectural services to draw up plans to engage a contractor. We hope to have works underway on the office space by June 2017. We have applied for funding under Peace to carry out works in the main Courtroom area. A decision on this application is awaited.

Castle Lake Project – A set of steps have been completed leading to the Brothers Graves. This work was completed by TÙS and CE workers and has been praised by all who have seen it for the excellent craftsmanship and quality of the work. Bailieborough Men’s Shed have been busy making additional seating to be placed around the forest and lake. This will make the forest more accessible to those who may have felt the walk too long in the past. March 9th and 10th saw the Community Planting of The Peace Forest. Coillte sponsored 2,000 Hardwood plants, prepared the area and allowed the Community access to the area to plant the forest. This was a wonderful 2 days with a visit by Minister Heather Humphreys who met with children from Bailieborough Community School Transition Year Programme and their course co-ordinator Ms Mary McMullen. Many thanks to all the volunteers over 200 people and special thanks to John Connolly – Forest Manager Coillte and Pat Sheridan Forest Technician Coillte.   Our next project is to improve the signage around the lake and forest, to provide directional and information signage for visitors to the forest. There will be 3 walkways outlined on the signage, with information on the history and heritage of the site. We have applied to the Heritage Council for grant aid to assist with this programme. We are continually examining future opportunities for the Castle Lake and are privileged to have a permit from Coillte to do so.

Peace Forest Planting at The Castle Lake Demesne

 

What a wonderful 2 days we had at Castle Lake planting our Hardwood Peace Forest.

Bailieborough you gave a great account of yourself, you should be very proud. We didn’t manage to get photo’s of all the volunteers,  There were so many groups and organisations that got us over the line, to start naming them would offend the ones we forget, you know who you are. We always knew there was a great community spirit in Bailieborough and March 9th and 10th 2017, proved that. Well done all.

Minister for Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs Heather Humphreys paid a visit and met with the students of Transition Year from Bailiieborough Community School and the CE and Tús workers who were very helpful during the event.

Bailieborough St. Patrick’s Day Parade

On Friday afternoon last, the 16th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade took place in the town. On a cold, wet and breezy afternoon, the crowds thronged Main Street to watch the Parade.  Although the Parade was smaller than other years, it proved to be an enjoyable event for young and old.  Mr. Phillip Fyfe—MC for the event—kept the attendance amused and informed about the various participants in the Parade. Two marching bands took part in the parade—the Corduff Pipe Band (who are celebrating their Centenary this year) and St. Mary’s Brass and Reed Band, Kingscourt. Local sporting clubs, organisations and charities were well represented with some organisations making a very welcome return to the parade. The R.T.E. cameras were present with a small segment of the Parade being shown on the six o’clock evening news.

The Prizewinners on the day (which were independently judged) were, Best Commercial Float, Blackwell Construction, Best Comedy Award went to ‘Knockbride Variety Show’, The Special Achievement Award went to Bailieborough Shamrocks G.F.C. and the Best Dressed Shop Window went to Black’s Butchers, Main Street.

A big THANK YOU to all the fantastic creative volunteers, entrepreneurs, voluntary and community groups, local businesses and famous faces who hit our streets to entertain and celebrate our National Patron Saint Patrick. A special word of thanks to RTE News and Sinead Hussey for covering the Bailieborough parade. A fusion of colour, razzmatazz and spectacular entertainment to all who gazed despite the weather. Here’s looking forward to next year’s Parade!

Damage to Car in St. Anne’s Church Carpark

Serious damage was done to a car in St. Anne’s Church Carpark on Sunday morning, March 12th –before or during the 10.00am Mass. The car in question was sideswiped by another car (probably red in colour) whose owner did not stop to report it. If the driver of the car wishes to accept responsibility or if there were any witnesses to the incident, they are asked to contact Fr. Michael Router at 087 4407990. Witness details will be kept confidential—if they so wish.

Parking at St. Annes: The above incident highlights the need for careful parking and driving around the Church. There is only space for four cars near the front doors of the Church and these are for people with disabled permits only. No other cars should be parked outside of the bays in the main carpark and certainly not in the avenues blocking entrances and exits. As an example of such thoughtlessness—a car was recently seen driving over the grass in order to park in the avenue, destroying a St. Vincent DePaul donation box in the process.
