Bishop Fintan Gavin has made his first pastoral visit to Kilmichael Parish.

On the weekend of Sat 22 and Sun 23 of January, Bishop Fintan celebrated Mass at the three churches of the parish: Coolderrihy, Johnstown and Toames.

After Masses he greeted parishioners and was also given a tour of the parish by parish priest Fr Pat O’Donovan and parishioners who showed him the Grotto at Kilmichael, the plans to extend the cemetery at Terelton and the site of the famous Kilmichael Ambush.
