We are blessed as six priests in the local family of six parishes are committed to supporting and helping one another
Summer time presents a particular challenge because the timetable of Masses we have at weekends is only sustainable if all six priests are all available. As well as time for holidays, along with weekend Masses, priests will also attend to other ministries including funerals, weddings, baptisms, care homes and daily Masses.
In recent weeks, meetings have been held with parishioners to gather comments and feedback. The priests have taken these on board to create a fair and sustainable timetable for the months of June, July and August.
From Saturday 3 June to Sunday 27 August inclusive, the weekend Mass times will be as follows:
Saturday Vigil Mass
- 6:30pm - Lisavaird
- 7:00pm - Clonakilty
- 7:30pm - Timoleague or Courtmacsherry (alternate weeks)
- 8:30am - Clonakilty
- 10:00am - Ardfield or Rathbarry (alternate weeks)
- 10:00am - Barryroe or Clogagh (alternate weeks)
- 10:00am - Darrara (alternate weeks)
- 11:00am - Rossmore or Bealad (alternate weeks)
- 11:30am - Clonakilty
- 11:30am - Rosscarbery
Fr. Ted Collins, Fr. Tom Hayes, Fr. John Kingston, Fr John McCarthy, Fr. Dave O’Connell, Fr. Fergus Tuohy

One permanent place to access Livestream Mass
The Family of Parishes website now has a new fixed link to access livestream Mass each weekend.
In the true spirit of sharing resources a countdown to either a Saturday evening Vigil Mass or Sunday Mass is now available on the website. This will be rotated around a different parish church each weekend. So for example this weekend the livestream will be the Vigil Mass on Saturday evening at 7:30pm from the Sacred Heart Church, Coutmacsherry.
How to access the livestream
This is a permanent link at onefaith.ie/livestream
When the countdown reaches zero the livestream will begin. If there is no countdown the previous Mass will be available.
There are several places on the Family of Parishes website where content from your Parish would be most welcome
Any announcements or newsworthy items relevant to all the parishes would be most welcome in this section. So for example any events in Timoleague that are open to all or Barryroe has a new musical setting of the Mass. Any photos of people you send will of course need to have addressed the appropriate permissions.
This section of the website is new and the idea is to gradually add stories or a historical fact about any of the six parishes. Try to keep each article short and about one particular topic.
This is a place for videos for meditation, contemplation, prayer, worship and recharging the spirit. Send the link to the video. (e.g. YouTube or Vimeo)
And if your content is published it will be emailed to the people who have subscribed
Please check the information for your parish and send any updates or corrections
