Eily’s Report 5th Sept. 2017

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly report.

Our annual September Horse Fair left a lot to be desired on Sunday. The weather was great for once but the crowds didn’t come. There were too many other fixtures within striking distance of Millstreet and our fair   fell victim to them all. The few people who did turn up were very disappointed at the poor attendance. I hope that this years poor show will not set a precedence for the future. We have two such shows in the year, one in March and one in September and people often come to meet other people whom they never see again until the next one. It is a pity to lose any event which brings people together like that.

September is well in and there is a vast amount of   activities available for people of all ages and capabilities to become part of . You can choose anything from the highly active and competitive to the   more laid-back type or many others in between. Maybe you need help or maybe someone needs you to help. It’s a well known fact that the best way to get happy is to make someone happy. [read more …] “Eily’s Report 5th Sept. 2017”

Death Notice: Rev. Thomas Dennehy

The Rev. Thomas Anthony Dennehy, a priest of the Archdiocese of Miami, was among the founders and builders of St. Brendan Catholic Church in Homestead (sic) and Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale.

“He was very much committed to education of youths,” said Msgr. Vincent Kelly, who worked with Dennehy at Cardinal Gibbons High for a few years.

Kelly, now supervising principal for St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, said Dennehy got personally involved.

“He helped in the physical construction itself,” Kelly said.

Dennehy died April 10 near his hometown in Glanmire, Ireland, of a heart attack. He was 65.

Born in Millstreet, County Cork, on April 11, 1934, Dennehy studied philosophy and theology at All Hallows College in Dublin. He was ordained a priest in 1958. From Ireland, he was assigned to the archdiocese in St. Augustine ; there was only one archdiocese at the time.

Dennehy’s first assignment was to teach at Christopher Columbus High in Miami. After that, he studied school administration at Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., where he received his master’s in education.

For 35 years, he served the archdiocese as a priest and educator. His first class at St. Brendan High started with approximately 400 students in 1975; by his retirement in 1993, the school had more than 1,100.

“He had tremendous conviction and influenced many young students, men and women who credit him for much of their success,” Kelly said.

Dennehy is survived by a brother, Denis, of Dublin, and a sister, Noreen Monaghan, of Melbourne, Australia.

John Greene Talks with Jake Carter on C103 from 7pm

We thank Presenter, John Greene, for the following advance information regarding this week’s “Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 from 7 this evening (S.R.):

He is regularly referred to as ‘Nathan Carter’s younger brother’, but Jake is a different model of the Carter family. While proud to be Nathan’s sibling, this young man is determined to be different – so you won’t see any waistcoats or accordions on stage, and you won’t hear ‘Wagon Wheel’ or the Wild Rover.

He cites the likes of ‘McFly’, ‘Busted’, ‘Rascal Flats’ and ‘Hunter Hayes’ as being heavy influences on his fledgling career so far. He is after all only eighteen years of age. [read more …] “John Greene Talks with Jake Carter on C103 from 7pm”
