Lady's Well December 1996


The members of the Lady Well Group are happy to report another successful year. Thanks to them the grounds were kept in beautiful condition. Members worked tirelessly all through the Spring and Summer.

The highlight of the year was of course Lady Day, with concelebrated Mass at the Well. Thankfully the rain held off. The occasion was made even more memorable by the presence of some of the priests and other religious, from the parish who returned home, from all over the world, for the reunion. We wish them well whenever they may be.

The group purchased an adjoining piece of land, for an extension to the car park, to accommodate the ever increasing number of cars coming to the Well especially on the 15th of August. Thanks to the FÁS group, work on the boundary wall of this land is well ahead and hopefully by next Lady Day the site will be developed and ready for use.

Sincere good wishes to Paddy Mitchell for a full return to good health, also all the best to John Delaney, who has been indisposed, but thankfully is well again.
