The funds are used to; Send people to Lourdes Run an annual Christmas Party. Bring people on an annual Pilgrimage to Knock. Run monthly Tea Parties in Clonmel Og. Attend the Blessing of the Sick in Holycross Bring people on outings.and other events as they arise. In 2010, the Emergency services ran a fundraising cycle and together with the National Lottery, the Society was able to purchase a specially adapted bus which we use to transport our members. The society holds an annual AGM to elect it's committee officers.
