Tom Meaney
Rathroe, Derrinagree, Mallow, Co. Cork.
Died 26th December 2022
Acknowledgement and First Anniversary

On the occasion of Tom’s first anniversary, his daughters Noreen and Siobhán, sons Con, John, Tomás and Donal, daughters in law Helen, Joanne, son in law Niall and his adored seven grandchildren would like to acknowledge the many gestures of kindness and sympathy shown to us
throughout Tom’s illness and funeral.
We are deeply indebted to our dedicated Community Health nurses, Dad’s committed carers, Marymount Hospice Support Team and The Irish Cancer Society Night Nurses for the remarkable kindness and care shown to him. We would like to extend our thanks to the entire staff at Dr. Leaders’s Surgery, Boherbue and all in Reens’s Pharmacy Millstreet. We wish to thank everyone who attended the funeral ceremonies and those who travelled long distances to be with us. Our sincere appreciation to Uachtarán na hÉireann Michael D Higgins for the attendance at the funeral mass of his Aide de Camp, Colonel Stephen Howard and to the Tánaiste Micheál Martin
acknowledging the contribution of our late father to the Irish state and his commitment and dedication to his constituents. Thank you to those who telephoned, sent mass cards, sympathy cards, novenas and letters, celebrated masses, placed messages of condolence on and those
who participated in the live streaming of Tom’s funeral mass. We remember with gratitude those who would have liked to attend but could not and remembered us in their thoughts and prayers.
A sincere word of thanks to Canon John Fitzgerald P.P. Millstreet, who celebrated Tom’s funeral mass and recited prayers at the graveside assisted by Fr. Bartie Doherty, Kiltegan Fathers, Fr Paddy Byrne, Millstreet and Fr Liam Kelleher, Cobh. Our gratitude to Seán Ó Sé, traditional singer, Margaret Healy, soloist accompanied by Leah Murphy on the organ for their beautiful singing and music. Thanks to Margaret Murphy, sacristan and to Garden of Eve flower shop.
We thank Davy, Cora, Martina and Declan of Tarrant’s Undertakers for their support, advice, empathy and professionalism, Peter O’ Callaghan for the excellent streaming of Tom’s mass. Our sincere thanks to the Gardaí of Millstreet Garda Station and to the stewards for the professional manner in which the organisation of traffic and parking was managed ensuring the safe flow of traffic during the funeral.
We will always cherish and remember with gratitude everyone who stood in respectful silence in the various Guards of Honour and the people who stood in respect along the roadside on the journey to St. Mary’s Cemetery. To those who helped in any way, your contribution made our loss more
bearable. It would be impossible to thank everyone individually, kindly accept this acknowledgement of our sincere appreciation.
Masses have been offered for your intentions.

Christmas Message to Millstreet Parish from Canon John Fitzgerald, P.P.

Dear Parishioners,

 We have completed our Advent journey and are ready to welcome

our Saviour into the world. When we reflect of the last twelve months,

we can see how so much, and so little has changed, both personally

and worldwide.

As we celebrated Christmas in 2022, families were rejoicing that

they could be together for this special time following long separations

due to Covid. We saw welcoming scenes at our airports of families

reuniting and we saw tears of joy; unfortunately, these joyous scenes

were once again overtaken by images on our TV screens of tears of

devastation, due to wars and families being torn apart. How sad it is for

all those who have had to leave their homelands and try to rebuild their

 lives, with very uncertain paths before them.

This Christmas we remember all these people who are part of our

community and just like Mary and Joseph did in that simple manger in Bethlehem, we extend our hand of friendship and pray that peace will

be restored to all the troubled parts of our world.

In Parish news our Parish Finance Council are delighted to announce that

our Parish debt is now €1,000,000. This is a great milestone to have reached and sincere thanks to our committed and loyal Parishioners, near and far,

past and present, who have contributed through our Envelope system and personal donations. Of course, as we repay our debt, we continue to carry

out necessary work to all Parish property.

I also take this opportunity to thank everyone who has assisted in our Parish during the year; Priests of the Pastoral Area, our numerous volunteers who

help prepare our Churches for liturgies during the year, Church choirs and organists, those preparing our children for First Holy Communion, our Parish Staff and our Parishioners who attend our daily and weekly Masses.  It is all of you who make our Parish vibrant and who will help to keep our faith alive.

I am always conscious that many families in the Parish are grieving the loss of a loved one and this time of year can be particularly hard. The Light of Faith, and the precious memories of each loved one we hold in our hearts, will sustain and help us.

 To all parishioners, at home or away, may true peace be with each and every one of you this Christmas Season.

 Today true peace has come down to us from heaven: Our Saviour has been born in the world.



As we celebrate your birth among us

May our hearts be filled

with the joy of your presence.

May our families be Blessed

from the abundance of your goodness.

May our world be filled

with the wonder of your peace.

May we rejoice and be glad

that you are not far away

From anyone of us this Christmas.


   Silent night, Holy night, All is calm, All is bright.
