We are delighted to have you here and please God it will add to the happy times you’ll spend in Fermanagh.

Feasts of the Week: Monday: St Declan: He was an early Irish bishop and abbot. Tuesday: St James the Apostle. He was the brother of St John. He was the first of the apostles to be martyred. Tradition has it that the relics of St James were brought to Spain sometime after his martyrdom and his shrine at Compostella in Spain grew in importance and has become the greatest pilgrimage centre in Western Europe. Wednesday: St Joachim & St Anne – the parents of Our Lady. Saturday: St Martha.


Reflection:Moses said he was ‘slow of speech’; Jeremiah said he was ‘too young’; Amos said, ‘I am no prophet’; Mary said, ‘How can this be?’ Peter said he was ‘too sinful’; the centurion said he was ‘not worthy’; Paul said, ‘I know that nothing good lives in me’. Today is your turn. God calls and doesn’t ask if we are suitable – only if we are available.

A Round Tuit: This is a Tuit. Guard it with your life as Tuits are hard to come by, especially the round ones. This is an indispensable item. It will help you become a more efficient worker. For years we have heard people say, “I’ll do it as soon as I get a Round Tuit.” Now that you have one, you can accomplish all those things you put aside until you got a Round Tuit!


Valuables in your Car: Please do not leave any valuables in your cars at any time at The Graan as it merely encourages criminals.
