So why not get drawing, painting, cutting, sticking, pasting and generally having fun being creative about a local saint on a big A3 Page.  The deadline for the competition has been extended to Wednesday April 10th.


This year our neighbours in Kildare and Leighlin have had a massive entry as they are celebrating 1,500 years of St. Brigid.  However, we in Killaloe can’t let the Kildare crew win and beat us without a good battle.  Let’s make a mighty effort to be the best.  All saints of Killaloe, pray for us in all our efforts!!!
