St Lappan’s, Little Island, in the Cobh and Glanmire Union of Parishes in the United Dioceses of Cork, Cloyne and Ross, has been nominated for a LIBA Award.
The LIBA Awards are presented by the Little Island Business Association, and acknowledge the contribution of members of the business, civic, and residential community to the growth and development of Little Island.
St Lappan’s has been nominated in the category of ‘The Little Island Community Project of the Year, 2019’.
This is an acknowledgment of the refurbishment of St Lappan’s Church and the opening of the church to the business community as a place of reflection and peace.
The award ceremony will take place on Friday 14th June at 7pm, where well-known broadcaster Bibi Baskin will be the guest speaker.
The Rector of Cobh and Glanmire Union of Parishes, Revd Paul Arbuthnot, said:
It is an honour for this parish to have been nominated for a LIBA Award. This nomination is testament to the hard work of the Select Vestry and to the vision of the late Rev’d Adrian Moran who helped to drive this project forward. We are delighted to be an open, inclusive, Christian presence in the midst of this bustling and growing community.
