Adare’s Parish Priest, Monsignor Daniel Neenan, is moving heaven and earth to have weddings celebrated again in the wedding capital of Limerick. Monsignor Dan said he will marry couples on Sundays -a day not permitted in the Limerick Diocese as it’s a very busy day for priests. He also said that he would do two weddings in the one day to help ease the backlog. “We have three hotels in Adare and they employ at least 800 between them. Then you have the boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants and bars and they all draw from the weddings” said Monsignor. On average 80 or 90 weddings take place annually in the Holy Trinity Abbey Church. In the height of the season there can be three or four a week. To date 14 weddings have been put back during COVID-19.

Monsignor Neenan said that he wants to do everything he can to help the hotels and local businesses bounce back from the effects of COVID -19.
