Fr Michael Cusack blessing the new pitch at Oriel Park in February 2017
Dundalk priest Fr Michael Cusack has told the Democrat that he will be moving on from his role at St Joseph’s Redemptorist to Galway this Spring.
The priest who has become hugely popular in the Dundalk parish he served over the last two decades is currently planning a charity fundraiser in place of a leaving party and says he hopes many people will come out to support the good causes on Saturday, 13 April.
The fundraiser is 'Fr. Michael Cusack's Farewell Fundraiser' and is supporting the Dundalk Simon Community, The Birches Alzheimers Daycare Centre and the Maria Goretti Foundation.
It will be held in the Carrickdale Hotel on Saturday 13th April at 8.00pm and all proceeds go directly to the charities. Music by 'Us' and plenty of spotprizes, refreshments, dancing and craic on the night. Tickets cost €20 and are available from The Redemptorists, The Carrickdale, Lally's Electrical.
Fr Cusack said: "I'm looking forward to a great night."
The Redemptorist priest will also feature in The Dundalk Democrat's My Dundalk Life feature which will be in shops next Tuesday, March 19.
