Weekly News 22nd September 2012

The death occurred on September 7th of Patrick Carmody, Carmey. Removal took place from Keller’s Funeral Home the following Monday, to Kilbarron Church and after Requiem Mass burial was in Lislaughtin Cemetery, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. Pat who was in his 83rd year was a native of Tarbet Co. Kerry, he had served as a Garda Detective in Dublin Castle and on his retirement came to reside on his farm in Carney.  He was a very friendly person with a great love of his horses, also a deeply religious man. Sympathy is extended to his family, Mary, daughters Mary and Elaine, son Patrick, brothers, sisters, relatives and friends.

Our congratulations are extended to Terryglass on winning a silver medal in this year’s awards and to Kilbarron on coming joint fourth in the category. These results highlight the enormous amount of work that goes on throughout the year, well done to all involved.

Birthday greeting are extended to Jimmy O’Meara, Kevinstown, who celebrated his 80th birthday with family and friends in Hannigan’s Bar, Kilbarron last Saturday. We wish Jimmy many more years of health and happiness,

We had another historical weekend gone by, when our new U/16 team took to the field in Nenagh against Nenagh Celtic last Saturday lost 5-0, hard luck and well done to all the players and coaches who got things of the ground with games and coaching, they can only improve. The junior team played Clodagh (b) in Ballinderry last Sunday in the league and came away with a 3-3 draw, after great goals from Darren Carroll, John Flannery and Barry Cahalan, but Clodagh somehow against the run of play drew level before the 90 minutes.
All teams will be notified by text of the games/training and players of all teams reg/membership to be paid asap.

An estimated 70 million people worldwide are of Irish decent and many claim ‘Irish’ as their primary heritage. They or their ancestors travelled abroad from parishes across Ireland and are now dispersed throughout the world, making a difference wherever they are- in their communities, through their social networks, or their businesses. Many retain their sense of ‘Irishness’ even though they may be many generations removed from Ireland. They have a contribution to make to our lives, as we have to theirs.
Ireland Reaching Out is a new programme which can support local efforts to invite their diaspora worldwide to connect and become involved in their place of origin. This is an idea which has potential for tourism and economic prospects in our parish.
To further this programme an information meeting will be held in St. Ruadhans Community Hall in Lorrha this Thursday night September 20th at 8pm. All are welcome. If we are going to survive as parish communities the onus is on ourselves.

The ‘Tip of the Week’- is to improve security when out and about. Keep wallets and purses out of sight, held or shoulder bags should be held close to the body and not dangling by the strap.
