Roundwood & District News 29th of April 2020


We have cancelled our outing to Palmerstown on Sat. 9th of May. We’ll be in touch next month concerning our Coollattin outing in June. Hoping this lockdown eases so we can get back to golfing. Willie Kenna Captain.


William Bennett, who has been Rector of Newcastle, Newtownmountkennedy and Calary since 2000 retired from full time ministry with the Church of Ireland at the end of February 2020. A much loved and well known pastor, he will be sorely missed not only within the parish but also by all of those who he met. He was a strong supporter of ecumenism and had great relations with people of other religions. He has a great interest in horses and was presented by Calary parish with a beautiful picture of his favourite horse, which was painted by local artist and parishioner Gay Nuttall. However, William will not be moving far in his retirement as he will be living close by in Glen of the Downs.
