Carriganima St. Patrick’s Parade on Monday 18th March at 3pm

Last year’s Carriganima Parade took place in snowy conditions as illustrated in our 2018 images.  It was Fr. Anthony Wickham who was Grand Marshal of the ever popular Parade.  Shane McCarthy of Carriganima very kindly assisted us in video recording the wonderful event.   This year’s Parade takes place on this Monday at 3pm.  Everyone is very welcome.  As always a mighty atmosphere at The Pub follows where many assemble.  Seán Murphy, Coordinator supereme, will as usual act as MC on the day during which his commentary of the Parade is always both witty, humorous and informative.  And Seán has just informed us that this year’s Grand Marshal will be the very same Fr. Anthony Wickham.   Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.) [read more …] “Carriganima St. Patrick’s Parade on Monday 18th March at 3pm”

Remembering the late Con O’Sullivan of Carriganima

During the recent Funeral Mass of the late Con O’Sullivan of Carriganima Village who was known far and wide as a true gentleman, a wonderfully dedicated Postman supreme and one who fulfilled many hugely impressive roles – a magnificent tribute was delivered by members of Con’s Family.   Here we share the beautiful feature which appeared in last week’s “Corkman” in the Clondrohid Notes.   We thank Con’s Daughter, Mary (who so superbly supported Con especially in his later years within a very welcoming home setting) for also sharing a number of images showing Con in his renowned Postman’s role and also his great love and care of pet dogs.   We extend our sincere sympathy to the entire O’Sullivan Family on the sad departure of Con to his Eternal Reward.  R.I.P..  Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.   Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
