The reduction in the number of priest’s in the parish has meant that both Fr. Pat O’Donnell P.P. and Fr. Kevin McNamara C.C.   Are on the road a lot more, and have a broader area to cover. As a consequence, it is very important that we put in  place a location where   parishioners  can  call  with  their  enquiries,  knowing  for  certain   that  there  will  be  somebody  there  to  greet  them. Furthermore with the ongoing changes in parish structures such a facility will be even more important in the years   ahead.  We are therefore happy to announce  that  OUR  NEW PARISH  OFFICE  is  open  to all  from  last  Monday   January  27      We  have  been  fortunate  here  in  our  Rathmore  Parish  to  have  had  the  services  of  two  outstanding    secretaries  in Janice O’  Sullivan and Maureen Cremin.  They will be joined on the staff by Kathleen Kelleher, whom   many of you already know through her work with Rathmore Social Action Group.  In the new arrangement Maureen and Kathleen   will run the Parish Office, Janice will continue as previously to work from her home office. I  would like to  express my  sincere thanks to  Janice: nobody has done  more to  facilitate this change; and  nobody has  sacrificed  more to  enable it to take place. We have been in a period of transition over the past few months. Since August the Church Newsletter has moved to the Presbytery Office: similarly the booking of masses has moved from Janice’s capable hands. In both cases you will have seen slight teething problems but I know from now we will   be back to full steam ahead.   Parish Office Where is it? One of the side units in Teach Iosagain just the back of Rathmore Church. Signs will direct you to the location Phone (064)7761669 Email:  rathmore@dioceseofkerry.ie Office Hours Monday 4.00p.m -   7.00p.m. Tuesday   9.45a.m - 12.45p.m. Wednesday 9.45a.m - 12.45p.m. Thursday   4.00p.m -  7.00p.m. Friday    11.00a.m -   2.00p.m. Contact the Parish Office for all matters, particularly to book Masses, Baptisms Weddings.  Also items for inclusion in the Church Bulletin. Community Newsletter Office (Janice) Contact No: 064 7758219 Email janice@rathmoreparish.ie please Note: Janice will continue to work from her existing office.

Rathmore Community Council Working Together as a Community.
Mr. Liam Flynn from Millstreet outlined a proposal which would very much enhance our village over the Christmasperiod. Unfortunately the proposal would involve significant expenditure in year one but not quite as costly in year two and subsequent years. Year one brackets would cost €50, trees are €15 and lights €22, putting up and taking down €40. Initial cost of €120. For those who already have brackets, trees and lights can be supplied for €70. He has agreed to leave prices as last year. While we feel that it is not easy for people to find money for everything in these times we feel that this is a project worth recommending but it is up to people themselves. If you are interested please contact any member of Rathmore Community Council or ring Liam on (087) 6380053 or (029) 70397.

All of the children were then provided with stickers and a goodie bag as they proceeded to take full advantage of our New Community Playground & an opportunity was afforded to all the adults present to see our New Playground.

While this was going on another group were busy catering, making sandwiches, home-baking, & preparing Teas and Coffees for the Adults. Yet another group prepared Goodie Bags for the Children.

They became Cumann Na mBunscoil East Kerry 6/8 teachers champions after defeating Fossa N.S,Currow N.S, and Faha N.S. They then went on to defeat Dromclough N.S. in the final of 6/8 teacher Cumann Na mBunscoil. This led them onto a place in the Div 1 Final where they met the Mon of Killarney, this was a great game of football, both sides fought hard till the end and the holy family Rathmore won on a score line of 0-9pts to 0-4pt. A great achievement, and well done to all the boys and teachers for all the hard work done this year.
