Tullamore Parish
My holy Angel Guardian, ask the Lord to bless the journey which I undertake,
That it may profit the health of my soul and body; that I may reach its end,
And that, returning safe and sound, I may find my family in good health.
Do Thou guard, guide and preserve us.  Amen

If you are visiting Tullamore over that weekend you might like to visit the new Tourist Office which opened this year in O'Connor Square.
