This week Clare Co. Council announced their plans, in conjunction with the Lady’s Irish Open in Dromoland Golf Club, to host a Community Festival in Newmarket on Fergus on Saturday 2nd and Sunday the 3rd of September. This festival will take place on the Ballycar Road and on the “Green” or carpark in front of Our Lady of the Rosary Church. As a gesture of good will, and in an effort to facilitate this community event, the Saturday Evening Mass on Saturday the 2nd of September will moved to The Wells Church. While this may be a source of inconvenience we believe that hosting Mass in Our Lady of the Rosary Church with the planned traffic restrictions, the lack of a parking and envisaged music and events would be much more difficult for ourselves as a praying community and for the event organisers. Clare Co Council have assured us that we will be able to conduct Mass as normal on Sunday the 3rd. There will be more details to follow in the coming weeks. We thank you for your understanding and we hope that our cooperation will help towards the success of this community and family event.
