on Ash Wednesday (17th February 2021). Lent is a time of annual retreat and
renewal for all of us. It is
a time when we embrace the Lenten disciplines of Prayer, Fasting
is a time to foster and strengthen our relationship with Jesus,
our Faith, and a time to ponder and reflect on
through His sufferings. It is also a time to make our own personal
reflection and how we can better live our lives in the image
and likeness of God.
Prayer for my Lenten journey
As I place on my forehead the sign of your saving cross You
say to me, repent and believe in the Gospel. Walking into Lent
my heart is set on you. May my fasting fill me with hunger
for you, may my prayer draw me deeper into your presence, may
my acts of charity bring your love to my home and community.
Lord of life, grant that by turning back to you in these 40
days I will re-awaken the joy of my Easter faith; for you raise
me up from fear and despair and call me to hope and trust in
God who is with me always. With you, I will rise again. Amen.

Owners – Please
There has been an increase in dog fouling in the village
of Clonegal. Clonegal Tidy Village Association asks dog owners
to restrain their dogs and not allow them roam freely through
the village. Also, dog owners who walk their dogs in the village
are asked to pick up after their dogs. Unfortunately, dog fouling
has occurred on graves and wreaths in the Cemetery on the Tullow
Road. Everybody realizes that this is very upsetting for families
who have loved ones buried in the Cemetery. Please ensure dogs
do not enter the Graveyard. Dog litter is toxic and is very
dangerous particularly to children. In the interest of health
and safety, please keep Clonegal Village and the Cemetery free
of dog fouling.

Bottle Bank is for Recycling not Dumping
It is very disappointing that some people treat the bottle
bank as a dumping area. Volunteers keep the bottle bank
area neat and tidy and it is grossly unfair to dump in
that area and expect volunteers to clean it up. Those
who use the bottle bank are asked to bring their bottles/cans
home with them if the bins are full and return when the
bins have been emptied. Do not leave them on
the ground. We ask that if people are seen dumping
please take their car registration number which will
be passed on to the Environment Section of Carlow County
Council, send the registration number to: firstname.lastname@example.org
