We must all be GREEN:  It’s our world, and we must not sit back and wait for our so-called leaders to finally see the light and take much needed political action.  We need to take action ourselves.   Next time think before you drive.  Can you get the bus, or the train, or even walk?   Look at your diet.  Can you cut out some of the meat and dairy?   What about your electronic devices?  Do you really need to leave the TV, VCR, computer and other appliances on when you’re not using them?  In particular, make sure that they are really off, and not just on stand-by.

Lough Derg – Traditional Three Day Pilgrimage follows a 1000 year old pattern. As soon as you arrive on the Island you take off your shoes and socks. You start the traditional series of Station prayers, walking around the penitential beds.  At 10 p.m. you begin a 24-hour vigil which ends when you go to bed on the second night.  You will experience a great sense of community as you celebrate Eucharist, the Sacrament of Reconciliation and take part in time- honoured rituals and prayers.  You leave the Island on the morning of the third day, although your fast continues until midnight.  Hundreds of thousands of pilgrims have managed to complete this pilgrimage, thought to be the toughest in all of Europe, perhaps even in the whole Christian world.   Pilgrims are allowed 1 Lough Derg meal on each day of their pilgrimage, consisting of Toast (without butter), Oatcakes and Tea/Coffee (without milk). On the third day of the pilgrimage, once pilgrims have departed from the Island they are permitted to take Soft Drinks. Still water is allowed at all times throughout the pilgrimage and drinking fountains are available, while bottled water is available to purchase in the souvenir shop. Please note pilgrims must be at least 15 years of age, and in good health.  Boat Times:    Boats will commence each day at 10:30 a.m. (31st May – 13th August). The full schedule of sailings is as follows:  10:30am, 11:00am, 11:30am, 12:00noon, 12:30pm, 1:00pm, 1:30pm, 2:00pm, 2:30pm and 3:15pm.   €70 includes Boat Fare.
