Eily’s Report – 17th July

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my Report.

In a matter of weeks now His Holiness Pope Francis will be here with us in Ireland to celebrate the World Meeting of Families. The Family is the nerve centre of our society and it is a great honour that the World Leader of the Catholic church is coming to our little country for such a big event. By all accounts tickets for the various venues where he will attend are going well.

Booking of tickets for the final Mass in Phoenix Park on August 26 is now closed. But a few can still be had at our Parish Office 02970043.

The church is going through a challenging time at the moment and we hope and pray that the Pope’s visit will rekindle in us all a deep hope  for the future.

“Where the Road Take Me” at 7 This Evening on C103

This week on Where the road takes me, John Greene speaks to a Cork based Kerryman who reflects on an unusual childhood.

Gearoid Cheaist (Kesht) o’Cathain was reared on the Blasket Islands without priest, electricity, doctor church or school. National Geographic magazine referred to him as the loneliest boy in the world.

The home of Peig Sayers and Tomas o’Criomhain got it’s name from the Norse word ‘Brasker’, meaning dangerous place. Although it was such a place, it was still home to a closely knit community.

Gearoid is now the only surviving member of that community, and shares his story on Where the road takes me – this Sunday evening at 7 – on C103.

Update: The programme has been uploaded onto player.fm by C103, and can be listened to here.
