Golf classic and St Mary’s ‘Camino Walk’ part of roof restoration bid
THE St. Mary’s Parish Church Roof Refurbishment fundraising campaign is well under way with the next activity on the agenda - a Golf Classic - taking place on Friday 27th April at the classic links course of Laytown & Bettystown Golf Club.
The first tee-off time is 9am, with the last teeoff at 4pm, but there are only a few spaces left on the timesheet. Teams of four including green fees and dinner are €300. If you wish to sponsor a Tee-Box, there are some still available, great value for advertising your business at €100. There are a number of excellent prizes up for grabs on the day, and a sprinkling of surprises too! The event promises to be a really great day out, with Fr Phil insisting he will win the nearest-the-pin competition.
Please contact the Parish Office at 041-9834587 to register teams or for sponsorship of tee-boxes and prizes.
Look out for upcoming summer events in aid of the fund including a “Camino de St.Marys” , an evening walk on the history of the local ecclesiastical sites of St.Mary’s Parish in the company of the brilliant local historian, Mr. Brendan Matthews from the Millmount Centre.
Brendan plans to start the Camino walk n’talk tour of St. Mary`s Parish starting at the Church in James’ Street and then heading down to Scotch Hall, Marsh Road and into the Dale, with access under the old Dublin Road. They then stop off at the historically significant St. Mary`s Church at the top of Mary St., where there is still a remnant of the old Medieval Catholic Church. The tour could finish at the Old Hill/Pitcher Hill area across from Millmount. It’s anticipated the “Camino de St.Marys” would take about 80 minutes or so, depending on the weather and numbers who may come along.
