The Church of the Immaculate Conception was packed to capacity this past weekend for the celebration of the Silver Jubilee of Ordination to the Priesthood of Kingscourt native Fr. Padraig McMahon. Fr. Padraig was joined by his Mother Lena, his family, and a large circle of friends from near and far, along with a large gathering of parishioners. Mass was concelebrated by fellow Kingscourt natives, Very Rev. Patrick A Mackin and Fr. Joseph O’Reilly and Fr. Gerry. A presentation was made by Cecil and Sadie O’Reilly. Following Mass, a reception took place at a specially erected marquee at The Parish House. Thanks to all who planned and prepared for the celebration.
