Rathangan Parish Journal:

For those who missed out on getting a copy the first time around there are still a limited number of copies of ‘Rathangan – A Parish and its People is currently on sale in Rathangan Hall for €8.

‘Rathangan – A Parish and its People’ was originally launched in 2012 by the balladeer Paddy Berry. All of the articles in the Rathangan Parish Journal were written by local people and includes stories of local known characters who were important in historical or sporting circumstances.

The Parish Journal can also make a great gift for those abroad and who may be yearning for a taste of home. We can also provide information and help regarding posting the journal as a gift to people in other countries.

To inquire about getting a copy please call into the hall or ring us at 051-577046.
