A Statement From Diocese of Cashel & Emly

The Diocese of Cashel and Emly have today made the following statement, due to the present Coronavirus [Covid 19] declared pandemic:

Archbishop Kieran O’Reilly, [Head of the Cashel and Emly diocese] has stated; “The public celebration of Mass in the Archdiocese of Cashel and Emly (with the exception of Funeral Mass and the Celebration of Marriage complying with the maximum attendance of 100) is suspended until and including Sunday March 29th, with immediate effect.

It is necessary to cancel both weekend and daily Masses, as it is not possible to comply with the public health authority’s requirement to have less than 100 people gathering indoors in both town and country churches across the Archdiocese.
I ask that all modern means of communication – radio, web-cam etc, be used to assist our communities to join spiritually in the celebration of Mass”.

Note: All of these arrangements remain under constant review. As the situation evolves you will be supplied with up to date information.
