Margaret O’Sullivan and John Casey got married last Saturday in Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Ballydaly. Photographer Ronan Pallister has put some lovely photos of the day on his blog, as did Fr James McSweeney who did the ceremony.
Update 5/June: Ronan has placed more photos of the day on his blog, this time photos from the reception in the Malton Hotel in Killarney.
In the Methodist Church June is always marked by the Annual National Conference of our Church. This Conference is the main governing body of our Church and is the final authority in any decisions that we make as a Church. It is carefully constituted of exactly half lay people and half ordained ministers. It is presided over by the President of the Church who is a minister and the Lay Leader who is (obviously!) a lay person. Every Methodist Church in Ireland is represented at the Conference and any Church or in fact even any individual member can bring a motion to the Conference.
