Eily’s Report – 5th October

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

How great it is to see so many places and events opening up again. There is a definite air of confidence and relaxation about. It’s still the done thing to wear the mask in certain places and as long as we keep on wearing them the situation will allow us to take more liberties. Sadly our churches are the one place where we feel that restrictions could be eased more. I know that more people allowed in would mean a big increase in the amount of after care for the people who have to wipe every seat etc. when the crowds are gone but I’m sure more volunteers would come on board. It’s sad to see the First Holy Communions and Confirmations going ahead without full family back.  After the ceremony the chatter and comradery among many generations of family always made them days to remember. Precious pictures were taken,  and as the years rolled on were dearly cherished as part of the family tree. These gatherings are very important but in years to come I wonder will there be a gap in the pictorial history of the early 2020’s. But with the hunger that is in people to get back to normal, we hope it won’t be even noticeable.
