Kilmihil Ladies Football Club – Annual Recycling Event

Kilmihil National School Grandparents Day 27th January 2021

Wednesday, 27th January 2021 was a Grandparents’ Day in Kilmihil like no other. 12 months ago Fr. O’ Loughlin celebrated a fabulous mass, where each grandparent was given a blessed St. Brigid’s Cross (or 2 or 3 or 4) by the boys and girls and many joined us in the school afterwards for a cup of tea and a chat. While this was not possible in 2021, we were determined to mark the day nonetheless. The boys and girls wrote poems and letters, drew and coloured favourite times spent with their grandparents and created slideshows/powerpoints with their most treasured photographs of their nanas and grandads.

The Grandparents’Day Display in St Michael’s Church

The love they have for their grandparents is so special and very obvious to see. In these difficult times, it is really important that grandparents realise this. They are sending their love and hugs ‘virtually’ this year.

A large selection of this beautiful work has been placed on display in the church and can be seen online at Sunday mass. Special thanks to Liz and Stephanie for creating the montage!

Online Tai Chi & Qigong Classes

We hope to welcome Kevin Copeland’s classes back to the Community Centre when this is all over. Kevin has now developed an online membership group where you can access online classes and more.
