Wishing Anna Moynihan and Katie O’Sullivan from Cullen the very best in the All Ireland Fleadh

Wishing Anna Moynihan and Katie O’Sullivan from Cullen the very best in the All Ireland Fleadh in the U18 Solo singing. It is a fantastic achievement that the two girls representing Munster are from the same parish and have grown up together as great friends through the years. There is a long list of brilliant musicians and singers representing Duhallow, Cork and Munster in the All Ireland Fleadh from the area including Ava Thornton, Muireann and Oisin O’Connor and Zara Lehane as well as others. We have no doubt that they will make Duhallow, Cork and Munster very proud in Mullingar. Enjoy the Fleadh. Go n-éirí an t-ádh libh!! 🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶

Eily’s Report – 2nd August

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

The biggest crowd ever for the Rosary, exceptionally long queues for the removal and a full church for his requiem Mass, That was the tribute which was meted out to the humble Pat Lane, who passed away before the weekend and who was Pat Lane. Born 60 years ago to parents Connie and Peggy Lane in Caherdowney.  We take little notice of each other getting on with our daily lives, but it is only when someone dies that we are rocked into a sense of the reality, that they will be with us no more. Born in 1962, we all knew and loved Pat for different reasons. Mine started long before he was born, when I walked the Liscahane road with his lovely mother Peggy Butler going and coming to school every day for years. We were soul mates, like all of us going to school that time we knew one another in depth and that familiar gene seemed to be passed on to Pat for when I’d meet him,  his mom’s name came up every time and some story or memory to go with it. On the wider scale Pat was a friend to everyone and his needs were few. So long as Mary and the children were OK, everything else came second. Pat had no high class education, he worked hard to make a living, be it on a powerful track machine or using the shovel to clean the streets or the shlean to cut the turf, even plucking turkeys at Christmas. If we are wise, we will learn a lot from Pat. He had many talents, play music, sing, recite, converse, which he rarely used and without them by just being himself, he gained the respect and regard of all those who met him over the years. Even the Healy Raes and the  Brennan Brothers came. Many would be wise to take a page out of his book. The shortest sermon I ever heard a priest to give at a Mass was when he turned towards the congregation (They faced the alter that time for Mass) and said in slow profound words, ‘Remember you may be the only Bible that someone will ever read’. The biggest crowd for the Rosary the longest removal and the fullest church,  the lovely Ford sisters with their meaningful songs and music, lorded over by Canon John.

Pat got it right.

We offer our deepest sympathy to his grieving wife Mary and his children Maria, Con, Patrick and all his extended family. No doubt Pat will work hard for them in Heaven as he always did on earth. R.I.P.
