St Oliver’s Church in Ballyvolane - the last church to be opened in the Diocese of Cork and Ross - celebrated its 25th anniversary yesterday.

Bishop John Buckley was the chief celebrant on the day and the event was also attended by Lord Mayor Tony Fitzgerald and Ted Owens, chief executive Cork Education and Training Board (CETB).

Anne O’Donovan, chairperson of the Parish Assembly of Blackpool, The Glen, Ballyvolane, described what the church means to the local community.

“Twenty five years ago, with the help and guidance of Canon Michael Crowley, the people of the expanding areas of Ballyvolane and Dublin Hill campaigned and worked for the fulfilment of their dream to have their own church. We are as proud of that church now as we were 25 years ago.

“The church however is a building; it is the people who pass through its doors who give it life and purpose. We hope and pray that we continue to do justice in St Oliver’s to the example shown to us, and the legacy left to us, by our predecessors.”
