Notice from Church Fundraising Group

To date we have raised  €154,315, which has all been spent on the church repajijrs and renovations. All the work was carried out by local tradespeople.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who contributed in any way to our fundraising efforts, this is a massive sum of money to be raised in a small community such as ours. We would also like to thank the local workers for their endeavours.
Unfortunately, we don't have enough money to cover our final bills. to make up the shortfall we hope to run another private members draw commencing late March.
Draw details:

  Costs €20 per month for 10 months
                    Half of the income will be given back in prizes.
                        Prize amounts depend on the number of entrants.

Anyone who wishes to enter or with queries please contact any member of the fundraising group.

Church Renovation

In May 2014  a fundraising Committee was set up in Valleymount to raise funds for the restoration of the of the roof in Valleymount Church and for the protection of the beautiful Harry Clarke stained Glass Windows.

The committee have worked hard at organising a variety of events each month to raise funds. These include, Dances, Supper Dance, Raffles, quiz's, Concerts,
Drama productions and a head shave.
The Hillbilly Tractor Run and Festival was a great success and this brought in a considerable contribution towards the fundraising cost. Private donations have come in from the
"Buy a slate appeal"
If you have any ideas for fundraising or would like to make a donation please contact Fr Teddy Downes @ 045.867151  or Marie @ 087. 975 5061 or email
Work on restoring the roof will begin in April 2016 and it is hoped that work will be completed by the summer of 2016.
