Welcome back! We hope that the wonderful weather we have enjoyed over the summer months has lifted all our spirits and will stand us in good stead for the challenges and opportunities of the coming months as we slowly slip back into the rhythm of school, work and meetings.  The coming weeks will see many parish and community activities spring back into action after a well-deserved break over the summer.  Almost 600 copies of our newsletter are printed and circulated through local Churches each weekend so we encourage local groups and organisations to take advantage of it to keep the community informed of any upcoming events or activities.

Details of any events can be forwarded to the Parish Office or emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 9.00 p.m. on Wednesday evening any week.

If anyone would like to pen a short article on any aspect of parish or community life or any contemporary issue we are always interested in new voices and fresh insights and will be happy to include them when we have space.  The newsletter is also available for download on our parish website www.harbourparishes.ie each week. We look forward to working together over the coming months to keep the community informed of local news as well as giving us pause for thought and reflection.
