This week I’d like to convey our heartiest congratulations to my dear brother, Bro. Vincent Corkery, of the De La Salle order who has been working in Malaysia for over sixty years and in appreciation of him great work, the Sultan of Perak (head of state in Perak, Malaysia) of that country conferred him with the highest honour in the land, namely the DATO title. It would be the equivalent of knighthood in this part of the world. He loves Ireland and comes home every year, but his Heart is in his beloved Malaysia. In accepting this great honour he said he was taking it on behalf of all missionaries, who worked in that land including all the Sisters of the Dishane Order .

  1. Keep up the good work. Its a very convenient of staying in touch with Sraid. Would appreciate more info on photos, in particular people’s names.
    Thank again.

    1. Hi pat, you’re right that photos etc need as much info as possible, and we are for the more recent photos, as the systems are now in place for that (with some house cleaning to do). The older photos don’t really have much of a description attached to them. But you know, sometimes we get photos without any description (and we can’t describe it), but the attached article usually puts the photo into context.
      But thanks for the compliments and glad you’re looking in.
