Magnificent Marian Grotto Beautifully Restored & Blessed

On Sunday afternoon, 2nd Oct. 2022, in the exquisite setting of St. Joseph’s Gardens, West End, Millstreet – formerly the location of Presentation Convent since 1840 – a truly historic occasion took place when Fr. Paddy O’Byrne blessed the magnificently restored Marian Grotto in the presence of a very impressed congregation.   Due to the inspirational dedication of an enthusiastic Group which included John Casey, Eugene Barrett, Hughie Dunne, Pauline Byrne and Tony McHugh – the hugely successful Project of the restoration of the original Grotto has been supremely realised with its new Statue of Our Lady (The original Statue was presented some years ago to the people of Sherkin Island in West Cork.), its marvellously creative landscaping with beautiful floral arrangements and its splendid Welcome Bench.  Sr. Kathleen Given representing the Presentation Sisters shares a central guiding role also (although prefers to be in the quiet background) and was most impressed as was Fr. Paddy O’Byrne when John and the inspiring Team of Volunteers first suggested the Project.   Tony also indicates that further development at the Marian Grotto is envisaged.   Sincere congratulations to All on such an amazing achievement.   In time to come a special “Nuns’ Walk” sign is to be put in place and it will then be indicated if public access is permitted.   Everyone present at Sunday’s event was very kindly presented with a delicious Ice Cream Cone!!   Here we share some 28 images from Sunday’s very special event at St. Joseph’s Gardens.  Tap on the pictures to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Exquisite autumn colours provided a glorious setting for the Blessing of the Marian Grotto by Fr. Paddy O’Byrne.

Fr. Paddy presents a beautiful Rosary Beads to John who places it on the Statue of Our Lady.

We recorded a special radio interview with members of the wonderfully dedicated Team. This will be featured on “Radio Treasures” in the not-too-distant future. We shall indicate in advance of the broadcast.
