Carrig an Aifrinn Fermoy: For generations many of the faithful gather at the sacred Penal Days Mass rock at Carraig an Aifrinn in the townland of Knockananig, Fermoy on the Sunday after the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.   They gather for prayer and in remembrance of those who suffered in those terrible Penal Days. Our faith teaches us to forgive; so let us forgive with all our heart, but let us never forget.

The traditional devotions will take place this year on Sunday 21 August at 4.00 pm.  Bígí linn chun comóradh a dhéanamh ar ár muintir atá imithe romhainn agus  d’fhulaing go mór ar son an chredimh.

The committee wish to thank all who contributed so generously to our recent church gate collection.  Your contributions ensure that the site is publically accessible for the next year. Go raibh míle maith agaibh go léir.
