Midwest Radio to broadcast ‘special mass’ for good weather

As the fodder crisis continues to pose serious problems for the farming community, a local radio station in Co Mayo will today broadcast a special Mass, to pray for fine weather.

The Mass will be celebrated at 12 noon in St Patrick’s Church, Ballyhaunis by parish priest Fr Stephen Farragher, and will be broadcast live on Midwest Radio.

Station Manager Tommy Marren says this special Mass will focus on praying for fine weather, in the hope that farmers can see some light at the end of the tunnel.
