CHURCH bells will ring out all over the world on Sunday 19th March between 11.00 am and 12 noon in defiance of racism and xenophobia. St. Patrick’s weekend was chosen deliberately because it is when we remember the forced immigrant, the trafficked child who was Patrick and who changed Ireland forever with his gift of faith. It will also mark the arrival of Syrian refugees to Ballaghadereen. Our church bell will ring from 11.00 am until 11.15 on that Sunday morning.
