A warm Welcome and Cead Mile Failte to Fr Michael Collins who takes up his appointment as Co-PP Newmarket on Fergus on October 1st and we look forward very much to working with him in the Tradaree Pastoral Area in the future. Every blessing and a very fond farewell to Fr Tom Fitzpatrick who takes up appointment in Doora-Barefield and for his support down the years to us here in Shannon Parish. We will miss him greatly as will his many parishioners in Newmarket on Fergus who have shown great love and affection for him in the many years he has served them. God Bless Fr. Tom from us all here in Shannon and a sincere and heartfelt thank you!
