Lord Jesus Christ, deliver me from all my sins and from every evil. 
Make me ever keep Your commandments and 
Never allow me to be separated from You.   Amen.

Killina 200


Over the last weekend in September the Presentation Order at Killina, Rahan celebrated the bicentenary of the arrival of the first 2 Sisters in Killina. The committee prepared a full programme of events over 3 days including a reenactment of the arrival, by canal barge, of the first 2 Presentation Sisters. <Click Here> to view an excerpt from the pageant.

Recent market research and surveys locally have shown that Tullamore people would welcome a radio station dedicated specifically to matters of interest to the town and surrounding areas. Consequently a group of people have come together and are well on the way to setting up "Tullamore Community Radio" which will be available for a radius of 3 to 4 miles around the town. The station will broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Interviews, discussions and specialised programmes will be available at weekends while music will be transmitted on weekdays. The steering committee aims to begin broadcasting online within the next few weeks and on fm early in the new year. If you would like to hear more there will be an information meeting on Wed. next in St. Mary's Youth Centre at 7:30 p.m.
