Some beautiful images of Enniscorthy and surrounding areas are once again set to be hung on walls everywhere from Bree to Bangkok as the official St Senan's Parish Enniscorthy Calendar 2019 was officially launched by Bishop Denis Brennan last week.

The idea of local photographer Liz Wildes, the calendar was a great success last year and saw Liz's images of Enniscorthy sent all over the world as people posted them to relatives as a little reminder of home. It is hoped that this year's venture will be equally as successful and calendars are already flying out. Such was the demand last year that a second print run was required and everyone at St Senan's is hopeful that the general public will get behind the fundraiser just as much this year.

The money raised through the sale of calendars will go directly towards chipping away at the parish debt and those behind the finances at St Senan's Parish are saying that it is now starting to get down to very manageable levels and will hopefully be cleared by next year.

Bishop Brennan and Fr Paddy Banville both commented on the wonderful work contained within the calendar, with twelve wonderful scenic views of Enniscorthy contained in a glossy well produced booklet. They were told that last year the calendar made its way to at least 11 different countries and brought a little bit of home to Enniscorthy expatriates across the globe.

The calendar is now available to purchase from the St Senan's and St Aidan's Parish offices and after Mass at the cost of €10 each.
