appointment of a new bishop, will visit our parish on two
occasions in the next few months. On Saturday October
30 th 2021 he will visit Cullohill to celebrate the 7 pm Vigil
Mass. During the Mass, Bishop Nulty will formally install
Fr. Martin Delaney as Administrator of the parish. This
Mass is a celebration for the entire parish so we hope
there will be participation from both Durrow and Cullohill.
Refreshments will be served in the Community Hall where
the Bishop hopes to meet many parishioners.

The Harps Senior Hurling were involved in a relegation
play- 0ff with Abbeyleix last Thursday night. Whoever lost
this match was relegated back to Intermediate grade. The
Harps produced one of their best displays of the year and
defeated Abbeyleix by 3-18 to 1-14. This means that the
Harps Remain in the Senior Grade next year. Very well
done to all
