On Monday 7th October the parish of Rahan turned out in style to say 'Thank You' and to bid farewell to Fr. Johnny McEvoy.
Fr. Johnny is returning to his Missionary Order, the Columbans in Navan.
The Committee which organised the event, presented Fr. Johnny with the fishermen in their boat, reflecting the image of being sent as a missionary, called 'to be fishers of men'.
