A Latin Mass in Annacurra
What has already been said of fair Annacurra can only be reiterated by those members and friends of St. Aidan's Catholic Heritage Association who had the grace to make a pilgrimage to the most northerly Parish of the Diocese of Ferns reaching northwards into County Wicklow, the Garden of Ireland. We followed in the footsteps of St. Patrick, St. Brigid and St. Mogue. St. Brigid, to whom the Parish Church is dedicated, also has two Holy Wells in her honour in the Parish. Several monuments to the men of 1798 are to be found in the Parish, including the graves of brothers Philip and Patrick Leacy in the old graveyard at Preban, which some of the pilgrims visited.
