Website update and Facebook access

We are in the process of updating the website. The structural changes are more or less finished. Next is page content which will be added as soon as possible and in stages. Columcille’s Facebook is now viewable by an access button on the home page, even if you are not a Facebook member. Many thanks to Craig Bennet at Vertus Digital, for developing the site in 2013 and this second update – plus ongoing support.
