Confirmation Pledge 2009

Children from the Confirmation classes of Ardkeenan, Clonown & Cornafulla schools were invited to take the Pioneer Pledge and become members of the association. The ceremony, which was originally scheduled to be on Saturday evening, 16th May during the 8pm mass, was held on Tuesday, 26th May in St. Brigid's Church, Drum. Members of the local Pioneer Committee were available at the Church during the special ceremony to enable the children to register and the Pioneer Pins were blessed during the ceremony.

Young Pioneers promise to abstain from drink until they are at least 18 years of age and to keep off drugs for life. We welcome all those who joined us.
