Kevin Luke Timlin
Céad míle fáilte! Congratulations to his parents.

Drum Art Group
Will be recommencing on Monday 10th September at the usual time of 10.30am in Drum Parish Hall. New members most welcome.

Autumn Stations
Anyone who would like to host the stations in their home this autumn is asked to contact Drum Parish Office at 6437125 to arrange a date. This is a lovely tradition which has been passed down through generations in our parish but would seem to be in decline in recent times. Perhaps you would consider hosting the station mass for your area to ensure the tradition continues for another generation.

Guest speaker will be the Parkinson’s Disease Specialist Nurse for the West of Ireland, Patrick Browne. All are welcome or for more information contact Anita on 087-6239139.
