I welcome you to the Parish website for Powerstown and Lisronagh.
The Parish is situated on the outskirts of Clonmel and is growing and developing rapidly. The Parish is rich in history and can trace its Christian history back to St Patrick through the ruins of Donoughmore.
This website will hopefully give you a history of the Parish as well as keeping you informed of the many activities that are taking place within the Parish on an ongoing basis.
I hope that this website will help people from the Parish who are scattered throughout the world to keep in touch with what is happening in the Parish.Whether you are at home or away I hope you find visiting the website informative and enjoyable.
I am very pleased to launch the online parish Graveyard Project and invite you to search and view the graves in Powerstown cemetery. This project has taken many months to document the graves in Powerstown cemetery including headstone images and a mapping of the graveyard. The Graveyard Project team led by Pat O'Brien included members of the Pastoral Council: Chairperson Larry O'Gorman, Secretary Jenny Hayes, Treasurer Marie O'Sullivan, Pat O'Brien, Marie Hurley, Mary Cahill, Nuala Veale, Willie O'Donnell, Denis Holland, Eileen Boland, John O'Donovan, Ann-Marie Kehoe, Celia Ryan, Marie Tierney, Patricia Cronin and Julie Hannan. The online graveyard viewer was designed and developed by Michael Phelan. We hope to extend this project to other parish graveyards in the coming months.
Fr. Peter Ahearne
