Eily’s Report – 8th November

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly Report.

The weather held it’s fury for the blessing of the graves here on Sunday. Following 11.30 Mass large crowds went along in temporary sunshine for this annual event. We all go at different times throughout the year to pay our respects to our loved ones but when our priests lead us in prayer in November it makes it all very special. People pay extra attention to their family resting places and it makes a great meeting place when prayers are over where friends meet and talk about many things but mainly about the loved ones that they have lost. During the month of November special indulgences can be gained by visiting any graveyard and players for the Holy Souls and special Masses said throughout the month also for the souls of our dear departed. Many thanks to all those who erected a lovely Garden of Remembrance in our church. The Keel in the Clara Road is also a popular place where people stop to pray for the  poor souls who lie there without any sort of identification. May they all Rest in Peace.

The monthly meeting of the Community Council will be held tonight at the Adult Learning Centre starting at 8.30 sharp.

Eily’s Report – 22nd February

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

Three hurricanes in one week was not an easy challenge but the Good Lord who calmed the seas brought us through them without too much disturbance. Goodness knows we had to batten down the hatches and take cover. But not everybody escapes un scathed some were without power while others got property damage. As a family we are most grateful that our members at Kilmeedy Castle escaped without injury when the mighty winds lifted the roof off one of the sheds and took it up on high landing it down with great force breaking their towing caravan which was parked in its path before taking a large bite out off their  back-kitchen roof. It happened at 7.30 am just as Jack was having a cup of coffee before going to work. Needless to say he got a great shock, the whole family did, but were grateful that he was still in situ to deal with the problem. Lucky for them that he had full access to the company building equipment and staff to do the necessary repairs. In a short length of time their cosy home was fixed again.

Eily’s Report – 15th February

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

A Fond St. Valentine greeting dear friends as I look out on a bright and sunny day, but with a little sting in the tail by way of an icy wind and cloudy horizons. I’ll start by thanking all the lovely people who took the trouble to contact  me both in person or on the web. To compliment me on last week’s report. It was great to learn that the account of my dad’s passing touched so many and brought back memories to others including members of the Pomeroy Family. It is so uplifting for me when I hear that you enjoy what I do, gives me the incentive to keep going and once again proving that nice feeling  that we are all one.
