O’CONNOR Park, Tullamore has hosted many great games over the decades, but perhaps the most unusual event it has hosted will be an open air mass on Saturday June 9 at 7.30pm.

This mass is being organised with the co-operation of the local parishes, explained the chief celebrant Tullamore’s parish priest Monsignor Sean Heaney.

“It is an opportunity for a larger local church community to come together to mark the holding of the International Eucharistic Congress in Dublin,” he explained.
