New Book on Kilmessan Church– Mary Gannon has published a beautiful book to mark the bi-centenary of the Church of Our Lady’s Nativity. Mary is an accomplished local historian well acquainted with the story of Kilmessan and Dunsany. The book of just over 50 pages provides a detailed account of the building with beautiful pictures. It is printed by Excel Print, Navan and is available in the local shops. No doubt this will be a welcome resource for all who are interested in our parish and its history. It will be a welcome addition to existing books, each dealing with different aspects of life in Kilmessan /Dunsany.
