Eucharistic Adoration is now in its 24th year at Mitchelstown Parish Church. Over the years many people have passed on to their Eternal Reward and a number of people have become old and infirm.
To ensure the smooth running of the Adoration that goes on 24 hours a day it is now necessary to recruit some new people to ensure that the Adoration will be able to continue without much difficulty to those involved.
Many people from outlying parishes have signed up for their weekly hour and it is not just the people of the parish that are currently keeping the rota going.
If you feel you have an hour to spare you should contact Nora Hogan 025-24149 or Catherine Hanley 087- 7727496. Adorers are now urgently required for the following hours - Thursday 8am to 9am 7pm to 8pm Friday 8am to 9am 10pm to 11pm.

Mitchelstown CBS Under 16 B Footballers had a very good win over Ballincollig Community College in the Cork Colleges opening round at Fermoy on Friday. CBS wind assisted did very well in the first half dominating at midfield and they took some very good scores. Goals by James Conway (2) and George Pendle helped the Mitchelstown side to lead at the break 3-10 to 1-1. Ballincollig did well on the changeover but they were unable to breach the Town defence relying mainly on pointed frees. CBS were held scoreless for the opening 20 minutes but four late points gave them an emphatic 3-14 to 1-8 win in the end. Lineout - Cathal O'Sullivan (Mitchelstown) Killian Roche (do) John Ryan (Ballyporeen) Jack Magner (Mitchelstown) Dylan Price (do) Philip English (Ballyporeen) Gavin Browne (Mitchelstown) James Conway 2-0, (Fr.
