On Friday, May 25th the recently refurbished Marian Shrine at Ballylahan was blessed and rededicated. The 55 year old shrine had fallen into disrepair but was lovingly restored in recent months. Thanks to those who built the shrine 55 years ago and those who have maintained it over the years. Many people were involved in looking after it during the last 50 + years. We owe them all a debt of gratitude.
The Shrine was refurbished by Michael Carney (Carney Monumental Sculptors, Frenchpark, Co. Roscommon) who did a very fine job. He was present on the evening. After the blessing all retired for refreshments provided in the Copper Beech.
