During the month of August, the Parish Pastoral Council invited parishioners to contribute to a gift for Fr Niall. He was invited back for a presentation at the end of the 12.30pm Mass on Sunday Sept 13th. Many thanks to all who contributed so generously to the parish gift.


Bishop Ray Browne has announced a number of clerical changes. Fr Niall who has been in this parish for 3 years has been appointed to Fossa Parish as Parish Priest. We have been enriched by his ministry and we wish him well in his new appointment. Fr. Amos Ruto has been appointed as Curate in this Parish. We look forward to making him welcome. The changes took effect from last Wednesday August 5th.

Jack Charlton has been laid to rest, 

the memories they are mighty.

The victory over England at Stuttgart,

the euphoria of Italia ’90!


He lifted our people and country,

The likes we’ve never known.

“Olé, Olé” was all the go – and not,  

You’ll Never Walk Alone!

Due to the current restrictions, confessions for Easter will not take place. Catholic doctrine teaches that if a person cannot get to Confession, it is sufficient to confess one’s sins to God, seeking forgiveness and with the intention of going to confession when next possible. God forgives the sins and the person is renewed in heart and soul. When the opportunity then arises later to go to Confession, he or she should do so.

As part of the celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of the dedication of Our Lady & St Brendan’s Church this year, the parish hopes to hold an exhibition and produce a publication relating to the history of the Church over the past 50 years. We would be delighted to receive photographs and memorabilia. All items submitted will be returned to the owner as soon as they are scanned/copied. 


From Monday, Sept. 16th weekday opening times will be 9.00am-12.30pm and 1.00pm-4.30pm. (Monday-Friday).


We hope this year’s Festival is an outstanding success and a fitting reward for the dedication and enthusiasm of all involved. We extend a very warm welcome to all who have returned home, to all visitors to Tralee and our Parish for the Rose of Tralee Festival. We hope you experience warmth and hospitality during your stay.
We are pleased to announce once again some Roses will attend 10am Mass this Sunday (August 25th), followed by refreshments in the Pastoral Centre. This is your chance to have a chat/ photograph with some of the Roses.

All welcome.  Céad Míle Fáilte
