Well it’s once again a beautiful sunny evening as I e-mail my few lines to the newsletter and what another glorious week  it has been with temperatures  as high as Spain and other hotspots.  Everyone  is going around with such healthy  colours no, need for fake  tan these days.!!!!!

I’ve just watched a lovely Mass from St John’s Cathedral in Limerick with Bishop Brendan Leahy, Fr Chris O’Donnell,  who dressed up as a teacher and who I’m sure everyone  knows  especially  our youth who travel to Lourdes,  Aoife Walsh (youth ministry ) and Chris Culhane who is the leader of the Brancardier in Lourdes.It was a special  Mass for the Leaving Cert students who should have been  starting their  exams today and have gone through  so much in recent weeks, so we remember  all of them and wish  them  the  best for  the  future.
Best wishes  are extended to Bridie Ahern of Templeathea  who celebrated a very special birthday last weekend.  Hope you had a lovely day Bridie and many more to come.
Congrats to Lorraine and Gary O’Connor Templeathea on the birth of their new baby, a little boy they are calling Jack, a little  brother  for Emily.  We also congratulate the proud grandparents  Mary and Jim Herbert  of Coole West and Timmy  and Marie O’Connor in Brosna. Best wishes all around .
Stay safe and here’s  to phase 2 next week.
