THE Annual Mass on the slopes of Mushera Mountain took place at St. John's Well last Monday evening celebrated by Canon Jackie Corkery and joined by Fr Frances Manning and Fr. James McSweeney.

Adding to the occasion were the presence of the Millstreet Choir and Millstreet Pipe Band.

Crowds from across Duhallow, Muskerry and further afield convened at the picturesque location that salutes the popular feast day of St John's Day and mid summer.

The annual staging has become tradition with patrons from the adjoining parishes from Kerry, North and Mid Cork in attendance.

Canon Corkery applauded the efforts of the St John's Well Committee for promoting a quite and peaceful location for prayer and reflection in addition to being a focal point for visitors thanks to its picturesque setting.
