Prayers were answered and the sun shone as 48 children from Ballon National School were confirmed by Monsignor Bremdan Byrne PP Tullow, supported by Fr. Howard and Fr. Whelan of Ballon.

Monsignor Byrne gave the Sacrament of Confirmation – Grace for Fullness of Faith and Life – to each child accompanied by their  Sponsor.



Fr. Howard presented each child with their Certificate of Confirmation.


These pictures can be downloaded for free to your computer.

If you are just viewing the pictures it’s best to do so using Firefox as when you are in the gallery you can easily paginate to the adjacent pictures by clicking at the top right or left arrows. But, sadely, you can’t download from the gallery.

If you use Explorer and click on a picture in the gallery it generally opens up in its own window and you can download it by right clicking. However its not so good at paginating to adjacent pictures.

If in doubt give me a shout 9159442.
