Loughmore Hold Harvest Festival

Loughmore Church

The Church of the Nativity of Our Lady, Loughmore which was built in 1977, is showing signs of having major roof problems, confirmed by leaks appearing during heavy rain showers. Repairs are now badly needed and to this end the Church Renovation Committee have embarked on a timely scheme to raise funds for these badly needed repairs.


To assist in raising the necessary funding for repairs you may purchase a slate in your own name or in the name of a family member or friend, either living or departed. The cost is €20 per slate purchased. There is no limit on the number of slates that you can buy. A certificate of payment will be issued to every participant. A record of all donors will be recorded in the Loughmore Parish records. Their website will be updated regularly to show the number of slates donated and patrons will be kept informed regarding progress with the Churches renovation. To donate payment can be made by cheque, postal order or bank draft to Loughmore Church Renovation Fund and can be posted to any of the following;

  • Fr. Padraig Corbett P.P., Loughmore,Templemore, Co.Tipperary.
  • Mary Fogarty (Treasurer), Tinvoher, Loughmore, Templemore, Co.Tipperary.
  • Mary Maher, Kilcoake, Castleiney, Templemore, Co. Tipperary.

In the past 3 months a total of 863 slates have been donated by local parishioners, friends and expatriates from abroad, raising a total of  €17,260.
