As a Pastoral Area we say thank you to Fr. Eamonn Clarke for his nearly 20 years of ministry in Kilquade Parish and the wider Pastoral Area.

Fr. Eamonn will be retiring from parish ministry on Sunday 26th November.

The 10.30am Mass in Kilcoole, the feast of Christ the King, will celebrate his great service to the community through those years.
