On Sunday afternoon our 9 year old granddaughter had a serious accident whilst out riding. She was airlifted to Cork university hospital and then transferred to Crumlin children’s hospital. She has undergone scans and thankfully there is no spine or brain damage.
However she has severe facial injuries and is already under going surgery.
Rosie and I are returning from Spain immediately but we just wanted to update you and ask for your continuing prayerful support which is so appreciated and is already bringing healing. Please also hold her parents – Claire and Jude – in your prayers as they spend these hours at Lisa’s bedside
Pray also for the wonderful caring hands of those in Crumlin.

More than 30 TKA Candidates for Confirmation met on a very frosty Saturday morning in April at the foot of ‘The Reek’ for their annual gathering and retreat.
Cruach Phadraig, the Holy Mountain of our Patron Saint, was covered in snow as they met and greeted each other at the visitor centre at Murrisk close to Westport.
The plan was to climb the mountain on the Pilgrim’s Path to the oratory on the summit but, while the sun shone in the early morning, the day promised bad and conditions on the The Reek were hazardous, so it was decided to limit the climb to reach just beyond the lowest snowline. Some hardy folk went that far. Others less fit or more wary went only as far as the statue of The Saint. Lunch was provided in the Visitor Centre when all had ( safely ) regained sea level. The day concluded with a short Service of the Word and a talk by Bishop Patrick All in all it was a most enjoyable day, challenging on several levels, and, just as important, ‘none were lost’.

It is with sadness that we report the death of Ruth who died in the loving care of the staff of St Fatima’s Hospital Clifden on Thursday afternoon. Her daughter Lynn was also with her which was a real blessing.
It was Ruth’s profound wish that there would be no church service and there will be a private cremation in Dublin at the beginning of the week.
May she rest in peace.
