Glenisland National School - New Role!
Glenisland Community Council would like to inform residents of Glenisland of their intention to turn the disappointment of the closure of our local school into a positive by using the premises as a focal point for the community. The best way we see fit to do this is to distribute a survey to all houses in the area. Using this survey we intend to put in place the requests of the community as best we can. We would appreciate everyone's co-operation in getting this project up & running as soon as possible. It is of the utmost importance to get as much feedback as possible as our aim is to build a community spirit that we can all be proud of. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.

Thought for the Day!
'Not everything that is faced can be changed,

What was war ?'

Novena Prayer To Our Lady of Knock
Our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland, you gave hope to your people
in a time of distress, and comforted them in sorrow.
You have inspired countless pilgrims to pray with confidence
to your Divine Son, remembering His promise,
'Ask and you shall receive; seek and you shall find.'
Help me to remember that we are all Pilgrims on the road to Heaven.
Fill me with love & concern for my brothers & sisters in Christ,
especially those who live with me.
Teach me how to take part ever more reverently in the Holy Mass.
Comfort me when I am sick, lonely or depressed.
Pray for me now & at the hour of my death. Amen
