When we started the draw we owed over £90,000 on the hall. We haven’t got our accounts complete but as of today we owe just over £5,000. It was hard work but well worth it and without your support we couldn’t have done it. A special thank you to all those who sold tickets and worked hard to collect money every month. Congratulations to those who were lucky enough to win and apologise to those who didn’t make it. We hope you will look at it from the point of view that The Marian Hall is now paid for and is there for you, the people of the parish.

Plebiscite: Over the next number of weeks, the people of the parish of Knockanure and parts of the parish of Moyvane will be receiving ballot papers through the past. When the name Newtownsandes was replaced by the name Moyvane in 1939 by the then parish priest Fr. O’Sullivan, this was not carried out legally, so legally the name Newtownsandes never changed. Should there be a change now from Newtownshandes to Moyvane, a change in name shall not affect any rights or obligations of any person or render defective any legal proceedings and any legal proceedings may be continued or commenced as if there were no change of name. It will not change the name of the local creamery.
