Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.
The November wind is howling outside but still the little birds come and feast on the peanuts that I hang out for them at if it was calm and pleasant. It’s a well known saying that we are all built to meet our task in life and the little birds are a sure proof of that. Talking of meeting our challenges, with the end of the lockdown another week away, patience is wearing thin in a lot of people. Tempers are fraying and like the long distance runner the finishing line was never so much sought after. But there is always light at the end of the tunnel and the hope of a successful vaccine is enough to make us all try a little harder and make sure that we don’t lose the trophy for the want of that final push. So keep on praying and keep on trying.
The death has occurred of Kathleen Murphy (née Leader), The Island, Clonbanin, Mallow, Cork. Peacefully in her 98th year, surrounded by her family, at Care Choice Nursing Home, Macroom. Beloved wife of the late Patrick, mother of the late Leonard, sister of the late Joan, Maureen and Leo. Deeply mourned by her sons Peter, Gerard and Don, her daughters Vaun and Helen, sister Sarah, brothers Donal and Sean, grandchildren, daughters-in-law, sister-in-law, nephews, nieces, relatives, neighbours and friends.
Due to current government guidelines, a private family funeral Mass will take place on Wednesday in The Church of The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Derrinagree, at 1pm. Burial afterwards in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Millstreet.
Family flowers only, please. Donations in lieu to St. Vincent de Paul. Messages of sympathy may be left on the RIP Condolence Page.
Colin O’ Riordan’s g-g-grandmother was born in Coomlogane, Millstreet, about 1853. She was Julia Corkery, sister of Big Jerh, and she marrried James Twohig of Banteer in 1884. Their daughter, Ellen Twohig married Thomas O’ Riordan of Farrendoyle in 1918. Ellen and Thomas O’ Riordan had 11 children, and are both buried in St. Patrick’s Cemetery, Millstreet.Colin’s gran-aunt, Julia, became a nun and was known as Sr. Agnes in Drishane Convent. Sr. Denise (Noreen) O’Riordan, was another gran-aunt of Colin O’ Riordan. Sr. Denise was a member of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word, Ohio, for 72 years and her passing earlier this year aged 87, marked the end of an era for that generation of the O’ Riordan family. Congratulations and continued success to Colin, his parents Michael and Imelda, and the extended O’ Riordan family in Farrendoyle and Tipperary.”
Colin’s wonderfully inspiring words following the historic win by Tipperary on Sunday, 22nd Nov. 2020:
“I can’t put it into words. It’s an emotional day for me. A few weeks ago I didn’t think I’d be here and just to be out there with the lads giving it your all for the sake of Tipperary, I can’t put it into words.
It’s the best feeling I’ve had in many years. It just fills me with pride so much, I get emotional even thinking about it. To me, it’s one of the best days of my life…
We’ve put in stepping stones with Tipp for a long time. Obviously I wasn’t there for the last few years, playing with Sydney or whatever. To come back to the stepping stones that these boys have out in for the last five years since I’ve been away.
This isn’t about me. It isn’t about Colin O’Riordan coming out to give interviews, it’s about the boys out here. To me, it means so much to be able to put on the Tipp jersey. It’s something I will never take for granted, it’s something I’ll respect to the day I die, that I had the opportunity to wear the jersey.
It’s a massive opportunity for me. I just want to say that I’m extremely thankful to Sydney for giving me the opportunity to play this game.
They were 100 per cent within their rights to say no to me and refuse me permission to play. They had no problem. John Longmire and all these lads over there with the Sydney Swans are an incredible organisation.”
We are most grateful to Seáno Murphy of Knocknagree and formerly of Mill Lane, Millstreet for sharing a very important memory and two historic images relevant to the recent Centenary Commemoration of the death of Captain Paddy McCarthy at Mill Lane on 22nd Nov. 1920. Seáno writes:
“Seán, in keeping with your report on Paddy McCarthy’s death I have to mention the story my mother Katty Dineen told me about the night he was shot by the side of Lena and Agnes Dennehy’s house. She (my mother) and her mother moved three doors down to Neily Hickey’s garage for safety. Paddy’s body was brought down and laid in front of mother’s window where he died the following morning. My mother had to wash away his blood from under the window. I am sending two photos to illustrate the exact location of that very window where he died and also of the back of Lena Dennehy’s house where he was shot.”

Thought for the week ahead
Christianity is not merely belief.
It is the practice of that belief by active charity. (Frank Duff)Saturday 21st November celebrates the feast day for the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and celebrates when Mary was asked to be the mother of the Jesus. Her response, “Let it be done to me,” was a great act of faith as she placed her whole self at the service of God.
This weekend we say a special prayer for mothers everywhere and ask the Blessed Virgin Mary to protect them and guide them in these challenging times.
As a mark of respect to the sisters of the Presentation Order a wreath was laid in the Presentation Cemetery by the Girls National School and the Community School in recognition of the service the sisters have given to our Parish. [read more …] “Millstreet Parish Newsletter 22nd November 2020”
