Excellent  Painting  Work

Johnstone Paints are major manufacturers of paints for the decorating industry in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Each year they examine the best painting jobs carried out in the previous year by companies using their products. Through several rounds of judging, the numbers are whittled down to a small number of finalists.


We are pleased to say that the work carried out on our parish church in 2017  made it through to the final round of this most prestigious international competition.  While we did not win a prize, it was an honour to be among the finalists. We congratulat  Tommy Flanagan Painting Company and staff on the excellence of their work at St. Ailbe’s Church.
