Glanmire Parish, County Cork, Ireland - part of the Catholic Diocese of Cork and Ross.

Parish Assembly meeting

January 18, 2019

The Parish Assembly is a group of parishioners who assist with the running and development of Glanmire parish. A new assembly is formed every 3 years. All parishioners are asked for nominations for the Parish Assembly; this nomination can be oneself or another parishioner. Nominees are invited to join the Parish Assembly.  The current assembly was formed in 2016. The chairman of the Parish Assembly is Peter Falvey, vice-chair is Tim Murphy with Claire Gibson as secretary. The full membership is Doris Murphy, Loughlin Ryan, Niamh Buckeridge, Linda Cashman, Carmel Cleary, Helen Harrington, Rachel Kelleher, Billy Meaney, Catherine McGovern, Catherine McPhillips, Maria O’Keeffe, Kathleen Twomey.  As priests of the parish, Fr. John Newman and Fr. Pat Nugent are automatically members of the Parish Assembly.

The Parish Assembly meets every month.


At the most recent meeting, there was a review of the  Christmas ceremonies.

There was some initial planning for St. Patrick’s Day and Easter which are the next busy times for the church.

The big event coming up is the nominations for the next (6th) Glanmire Parish Assembly. Nominations will be invited this February and the nomination can be oneself or another member of the parish. Anyone interested should contact one of the priests of the parish, a member of the current parish assembly or use the nomination forms.

There was further discussion on the implementation of the rationalisation of Mass times as recently agreed across our Pastoral Area.
