Hoping all the grandparents and elderly  of the parish and beyond, enjoyed Grandparents World Day on Sunday last which was established by Pope Francis the Theme being – In Old Age They Will Still Bear Fruit-

Pope Francis says that Old Age is no time to Give Up and Lower the Sails, but a season of enduring fruitfulness, and bids us to look to the Future, so don’t worry about getting old you have a lot to give and a lot to live for.

The death took place last week of Patsy Brosnan, The Hill, Knocknagorna. Patsy had been unwell for a while and was a good friend to many over his years. Many came to offer their sympathy to his Wife and Son Paudie  and relatives at Kelly’s Funeral Parlour on Friday evening last. Requiem mass on Saturday was followed by burial to Holy Cross .May the light of heaven  be his.

One wonders what is happening our Climate these past few days. In Iran there are Flash floods with houses being washed away not to mention nearer home up North Houses and Shops getting flooded overnight. Then in California and Spain  and Portugal Forest Fires are destroying Homes and acres of  land and Forestry. One extreme to the other thankfully we are safe enough here on our island of Ireland with no extremes of temperature in Summer or Winter.

The All Ireland Hurling and Football are over much earlier this year, and isn’t it great that the 2 neighbouring counties of Limerick and Kerry have won their finals. Keep the Flags Flying.
