11. Centenary of First World War


Fr Neeson and parishioners joined members of other Churches in the local area at a Solemn Service in Glastry Presbyterian Church on Monday 4th August 2014 to Commemorate the Centenary of the Outbreak of the First World War on 4th August 1914. The Service consisted of Readings, Hymns and anecdotal stories from the time and concluded with the extinguishing of a candle to coincide with the moment, 100 years ago, when war was declared in Europe.

“The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time.”
