As part of the 2016 celebrations in Straide, Mass will be celebrated in the old Penal Church (the present Davitt Museum) at 3.00pm on August 7th. This will be the first time Mass is celebrated here in 100 years. The last occasion was on August 20th 1916 when the building ceased to function as a Church. The new Church was consecrated and opened by Bishop Patrick Morrisroe on the following Sunday. All are welcome to this historic occasion.
