Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
This week we welcome the repair work done by the County Council at the West End of the town. The crossing at the Church and car park have all been treated to a brand new surface . And what a difference it has made. So smooth and so safe now, we have to say a very sincere word of thanks to our County Council and to anybody who brought this welcome development to fruition.
The dark evenings have crept up on us with the change of time at the weekend. And the touch of frost put manners on our lovely begonias and dahlias, sending them back to bed until the Spring. I had waited with bated breath for my late flowering Crimson Dahlia to give me a blast of late season colour and it strutted its stuff but for one night only before Jack Frost applied his wily ways. Aaah.

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
The first frosts of winter were crisp on everything when we got up on Monday morning. The sudden drop in temperatures sent us reaching for our warm boots and scarves. But the noon sun came out and melted it all away.
On Sunday last which was Mission Sunday, some fruits of the earth were placed on the Alter for all Masses and the Priest thanked the Lord for the abundance food for both man and beast which the land produced over the past number of months and prayed for the hands that worked on them. The choir sang hymns appropriate for the occasion.”All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all”. Buíochas le Dia.
We thank Presenter, John Greene, for this week’s advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme. (S.R.)

Joe Murphy, a native of Lisnaboy, Cullen, was among other things, the editor of the Irish Echo & Irish Voice, County Cork Association President. He given many people their start in America, and widened the door for many others. He passed away last Saturday. Below is a quick note on his life, times and contributions, written by the County Cork Association of New York:
The Officers and Members of the County Cork BP&P Association mourn the passing of our esteemed Past President, Joe Murphy. Joe was called to his eternal reward on Saturday, October 5, 2019 surrounded by his loving family at his home in Whitestone, NY after a long illness. Community activist and scribe, Joe was one of the elder statesmen of the County Cork Association and, indeed, of the entire Irish American Community. A native of Cullen, Co. Cork, the youngest of ten siblings, Joe was educated in the local national school, the “North Mon” in Cork City, and St. Augustine’s College, in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford. He immigrated to the United States in 1956, first
to California and then to New York City. He continued his academic pursuits at Long Beach State College and at New York City’s Fordham University.
Joe first secured employment in the banking profession, working both for the Bank of America and the Bank of New York. In the 1970’s, he took a position as advertising director with the Irish Echo newspaper, in New York, for which he already wrote a popular weekly column. Joe broadened his journalistic experience as the New York correspondent for the, then, Cork Examiner, and also for RTE. In that capacity, he was proud to work as an analyst, with the late Michael O’Hehir, on the broadcasting of two National Football League finals from New York’s Gaelic Park.
