Tullamore Parish Gathering Event
Gathering celebrations begin with a historical tour based on the canal bridges from Whitehall to the Clara Bridge looking at the wonderful history of that area of town.
16th August to 18th August 2013
The walk will begin at 7pm looking at the Canal Harbour, the buildings that once stood there, to Convent Road, the Kilbeggan Bridge, close to the site of the old work house, down Clontarf Road finishing up in the Heritage Centre.
On Saturday the Parish will welcome home visitors. Following 7.30pm Mass there will be a celebration in the Church grounds and also in the Parish Centre with food and live music.
Sunday will mark the culmination of the festival. The annual cemetery Mass takes place at 1pm. To mark the Gathering, following Mass in Clonminch, the Parish is going to take a “Community Photograph”, this will take place at 2.30pm in the grounds of Colaiste Choilm. This will be a historic event which will be remembered in years to come. Please come along with your family and friends. Even if you do not attend the Cemetery Sunday Mass it would be wonderful to have as many people as possible to be part of the photograph.
