More properly called a friary, Creevelea in Dromahair was founded in 1508 by Owen O’Rourke, Lord of Breifne, and his wife Margaret O’Brian, daughter of the chieftain of Thomond. It was consecrated in 1511 and was the last Franciscan friary to be founded in Ireland before the closure of the monasteries by Cromwellian forces in the 17th century. The lecture is open to all. Society members have free admittance, all others €5/€3 concession.

We in Leitrim Gaels Community Field Committee would like to extend our sincere sympathy to the Mulvey Family, Kiltoghert on the sad passing of Cyril Mulvey. Cyril along with his sons and skilled staff built our Community Centre to a high standard which our community and generations to come and the Mulvey Family can be proud of. To his wife Marian, his daughter Paula, his sons Adrian, Anthony and Alan, and the extended Mulvey and McWeeney Families we extend our deepest sympathy. May he Rest In Peace.


Sympathy is extended to Michael Malone, Keadue Road on the death of his grandmother Elizabeth Malone, and to Imelda McManus on the death of her aunt Betty Reynolds last week. May they Rest In Peace.
