where to post

Some people have been asking where to post the envelopes.

As there are currently no congregations at Mass, parishioners are asked to post envelopes through the letter box of the Parochial House next to Barryroe Parish Church.

What Envelopes?

If you have not received your letter from Father Dave O'Connell regarding the November Novena you are invited to take one from the Post Office in Lislevane.

November Novena

Father David O'Connell has begun the November Novena for the faithful departed from his home in Cork

Today is the Eve of All Hallowed Saints (aka Hallowe’en).

November Novena

Traditionally All Saints Day on the first day of November marks the beginning of a special time for us to remember our departed.

During the month of November Father Dave O’Connell, Parish Priest, will be praying the Novena privately from his home in Cork. Local people living in the Parish will be receiving a letter that includes an envelope to submit names to be remembered in the prayers.

As there are currently no congregations for Mass, envelopes can be posted through the letterbox of the Barryroe Presbytery. Donations to the priest’s stipend may be included.

If for some reason parishioners do not receive the letter here is a copy of it

Download the Letter

and feel free to drop in your own envelope to the Presbytery and/or submit your prayer request here…


A service to dedicate the month of November as a time of Prayer and Remembrance for those who have died and for the comfort of the bereaved will take place in the Cathedral of Saint Mary and Anne on Sunday 1st November at 3pm.

Bishop Fintan will preside at this ceremony. A similar service of dedication will take place in each Cathedral throughout the country at the same time.
