Mass

Mass will be celebrated in St Patricks Chapel Marlfield on Christmas Morning at 9.30am.. The seating is limited so please come in time and park sensibly to allow other car users access. The recent storm knocked or damaged many trees in the burial grounds with some grave stones and railings damaged. There is one spectacular big bough at the side of the belfry which has damaged the recently painted railings but missed the building.

Marlfield Village AGM

Marlfield Village Annual General Meeting takes place in Marlfield Clubhouse on Monday night the 29th January at 8pm. It is at this meeting an account of the business of the committee is discussed, issues raised and explanations given. Please come along and take part in the work of managing our fair village and have your say.

Village Name Plates

The maps used in the Griffiths Valuation process carried out in the 1840’s contain many records on what our lovely village was called. There were over 1123 persons resident in 1837 and the streets of Marlfield or Inis Leamhnachta were called, Main Street, Turnpike Road, Church /Chapel Avenue, Cork Road, More’s Road, Pondside. This is a project that will could be progressed in the coming year with name plates in Irish and English tastefully erected in the relevant locations.
