Derek Madigan, Sr. Dolores Madigan, Helen O’Brien, Veronica Long, Nuala Toomey & Fr. Pat O’Sullivan, all members of Our Lady Queen of Peace fundraising committee at the launch of the Split the Pot raffle.

This year, Our Lady Queen of Peace Church, Roxboro Road (Janesboro), is celebrating 75 years serving the community, since it was built in 1942. The Parish Council of Our Lady Queen of Peace has proposed that the church is painted, inside & outside, with a few renovations to make it a fitting place for worship and community celebrations.

“We are appealing for your financial support to achieve our target of an estimated €68,000 to complete the work required.” stated Susan Frawley, secretary parish fundraising committee.

“Our Lady Queen of Peace fundraising committee have put in progress a number of fundraising events  to help fund our church project.” 




Susan was speaking at the launch of the Split the Pot weekly raffle.  A €2 entry enclosed in an envelope (located beside entry boxes) with your name, can be entered into a number of boxes which are strategically placed in most businesses throughout the Our Lady Queen of Peace parish.  Every Saturday night, the envelopes will be counted and the total raised will be split, half for the winner & half for the church.  The first draw will be next Saturday night 13th May 2017.

“We intend to run many more events including a pub quiz, bag packing events, etc., to achieve our goal. The fundraising committee would also appreciate any financial contribution donated. This is our church which belongs to all of us, so fill your name in, enclose €2 into our envelopes, and we’ll split the pot with you!” said Susan.
