May I introduce myself ..
My name is Fr. Kevin McNamara a native of Cooraclare Village in West Clare. In fact those of you who use the Ferry Crossing over to Clare and you are going to the “Willie Clancy”or going up the Cliffs of Moher will pass my home in Cooraclare. I was ordained to priesthood in 1981 as a Missionary of the Sacred Heart and ministered for 25 years with that congregation; in Parish Work, Vocation Work, Parish Missions & Retreats both in Ireland, England and the United States. I joined the Kerry Diocese in 2001 and served as Curate in Kenmare, Killarney and for the last 3 years in the Parish of Rathmore which encompassed the Churches of Rathmore, Shrone, Gneeveguilla, and Knocknagree.
I thank all of you for your warm welcome and for so many kindnesses shown to me since my arrival on July 23rd. May the Lord be kind in blessing & guiding all of us at this time of new beginners. Fr. Kevin

PUTTING IT IN OR TAKING IT OUT
One day, when the inimitable Groucho Marx was getting off an elevator, he met a priest who immediately recognised the famous comedian. The excited priest extended his hand saying “ “I want to thank you for all the joy you’ve put into the world” Groucho replied “And I want to thank you, Father, for all the joy you’ve taken out of it”.
I often wonder are we too concerned with pulling out the weeds and, in the process, we lose sense of hope and joy. Do you experience deep joy because you are a disciple of Jesus?
