Irish Examiner 1841-current, Monday, April 11, 1881

 

LISTOWEL LAND LEAGUE.( Snippets from meeting)

 

 The Rev. Arthur Moynihan, Adm. Listowel League, presided.

 

Regret at change of Head Constable Bloomer, he was zealous and less liable to err.

 

The attack by magistrates, that drunkenness was on the increase is false.

 

The Rev M 0'Connor, P P, who was cordially received, proposed the first resolution—"That this meeting records its emphatic condemnation of the practice on certain estates of serving writs from the superior courts for the recovery of rent by which the tenants already over burdened are involved in heavy and to many of them ruinous costs. In addressing an assemblage of North Kerry men it is hardly necessary to refer to the difficulties and struggles which the farmers of the country, had to encounter for the past four years. Those trials were due in some degree to the visitation of Providence, but they were mainly the result of rack rent and insecurity of tenure as regards the land”. In Kerry as in other places many landlords, instead of sympathising with their tenants in their present crisis, only add to their burdens by involving them in expensive processes of law.

 

Mentioned were Fosberry county surveyor of the County of Limerick and Mr Gun Mahony, of Kilmorna. Who is so inaccessible to his tenants as the Man in the moon.

 

A respectable farmer who was worth £800 or £1,000 in hard cash, his rent raised and now unable to meet his ordinary demands.

 

Poor Jeremiah Mulvihill an occupant on this estate, his cattle sold, the bill of costs amounted to £30.

 

A resolution was passed urging farmers not to send cattle to graze on lands held by landlords, or purchase meadowing from them.

FROM FR KEVIN: LOST THE CASE………………..BUT WON THE WAR

 

As you are well aware by now I lost the case with regards my complaint about the Late Late Show, however, I am delighted that the BAI made the following observation about how the presenter handled the item.  A quote from the findings:  “It was the Committee’s view that the presenter misjudged the offence likely to have been caused by the use of the term ‘haunted bread’ and that his comments compounded the offence caused to the complainant.  While the Committee did not believe that the comments or the presenter’s contributions crossed a line such that undue offence was caused to the audience as a whole, the degree of offence may have been minimised if the presenter had demonstrated greater sensitivity to the potential for offence and RTÉ is advised to have regard to the Committee’s view in this regard”. I am delighted now that the case is closed and also I am looking forward to RTÉ and in particular its presenters to take on board what the BAI has suggested.   I feel as a result of this deliberation the Catholic faith and indeed all faiths will be more respected in RTÉ programmes from here on.

KILMORNA; Kerry Sentinel 1878-1916, Saturday, January 24, 1891; Page: 4

 

MR. PARNELL AT KILMORNA STATION.

 

(From a Correspondent.) At Kilmorna on Sunday evening, in addition to the splendid greeting at Listowel, an enthusiastic reception awaited Mr. Parnell at Kilmorna, headed by a torchlight procession. Mr Parnell seemed greatly pleased at the spontaneous expression of confidence, and promised to address them at greater length when he returns at the Easter Recess to be the guest of Mr. Pierce Mahony, when he will take the opportunity of penetrating further throughout the district. The accompanying address was presented to him on behalf of Kilmorna and its neighbourhood:— Kilmorna, January 18th, 1891.

 

TO CHARLES STEWART PARNELL.

 

SIR,—We, the undersigned, wish to convey, to you, on behalf of Kilmorna and our surrounding districts, our unswerving fidelity and continued confidence in you as leader of the Irish people. We rely on you and William O'Brien to help on the policy of reconciliation knowing that you are both devoted heart and soul to the true welfare of Ireland. In conclusion, we would thank Mr. Pierce  Mahony, M.P., for having so faithfully expressed our feelings and wishes in his speech of yesterday, and we trust that at no distant date we shall have an opportunity of again assembling  in our thousands to give you a right hearty welcome to North Kerry. (Signed),

KILMORNA HERD OF KERRIES

 

Mr. Pierce Mahony, of Kilmorna, North Kerry, is offering for sale by private treaty the whole of his famous herd of Kerry cattle, with the exception of some yearling heifers and calves, this affords a rare opportunity to any who may wish to form a herd or possess exceptionally  good specimens of our native breed;  for we. Are safe in saying that such a highly bred herd of Kerries is not to be found elsewhere, not only are all the animals now offered entered or eligible for entry, in the Kerry Herd Book, but many of them are descendants of cows that were highly esteemed for their characteristic shapes and good milking qualities, long before the herd book was thought of.

 

 The herd was founded in 1882, and the object kept steadily in view ever since have been purity of blood combined with true form and colour, and the development of milking properties. That these objects have been attained, the prizes awarded to representatives of the herd and the prices obtained for many of them fully testify. We  cannot in this notice afford space for enumeration of the prizes won since  1882, even in a condensed form, they fill three pages of the  catalogue ; suffice it to say that every year from 1883 to 1890, inclusive, numerous prizes (many of them "Firsts ") were gained at shows of the old Royal Agricultural  Society of Ireland and of the Royal Dublin Society, gold medals in London and in Paris in 1888 and 1889), and (a most remarkable  achievement ) a second prize in each of the three classes bulls, cows, and heifers at the jubilee show of the Royal Agricultural Society of England. In 1891-2-3 Mr Mahony did not exhibit; but at the last spring show at Ballsbridge he obtained several prizes and commendations for bulls and heifers.

 

The catalogue contains the pedigrees and prices of nine bulls, one and two years old, and of seventeen cows and heifers, varying in age from two to ten years, very few, however, being more than five or six years old.

THOUGHT: There were many times when truth spoke to me, but I did not listen. Often it called to me, but I did not hear it. I was too busy listening to lies. Unfortunately, if you listen to lies long enough, when truth speaks you cannot hear or bear it. --Lisa Bevere.

THE KNOCKANURE CHURCH

 

Interesting Religious Ceremony; On Thursday, the 17th inst., the parish  church of Knockanure was the scene of a magnificent  spectacle long to be remembered by those favoured as participators at the solemn ceremony of seeing blessed and erected for their benefit the Stations of the Cross. From an early hour the parishioners may be seen making their way from the different directions; all anxious to have a place secured at the appointed hour, the old and infirm longing for the youth and agility of manhood, to enable, them to move in pace with their mental anxiety, the youths of tender years of both sexes eager to witness the greatest sight of their young lives, the solemn act of consecrating to God the fruits of their generous donations. What pardonable joy wells up in their young hearts at the thought of duty nobly done, in response to the earnest appeal of their good pastor! Though the Church has been built 45 years, little could since be done in the way of improvements owing to the poverty of the people, but on their release from the shackles landlordism a new spirit was born among them, which enabled Fr. Garvey to give his flock a renovated church, where the religiously disposed can now commune in peace with God. As the eye of the good Shepherd is ever watchful for succulent  herbage to nourish his flock, so Fr. Garvey saw how barren was the inside of this little church; and how little the devotional instincts of the congregation were excited by their surroundings, he at once took steps to have this want supplied. Placing the matter before his parishioners who entered into the spirit of the project, he commended them to God's guidance. There is a guiding star whose secret influence acts as a talisman wherever good work needs a helper, and this most meritorious work had a quiet gently moving, but brilliant luminary in the person of Fr. Lyne, C.C. to mention his name in any laudatory manner is to incur his displeasure; but as I write incognito, I think it but just to say that the success of any undertaking is assured in which he is interested. Fr. Lyne. C.C. called a meeting of the ladies of the parish, and well the result proved the foresight of his arrangement, for the gold and silver stream that poured in guaranteed the erection of three stained glass windows over the High Altar—Jesus in the centre, Mary to His right, and Joseph to his left , recalling to the minds , of the penitent devotees, the pious ejaculation, "Jesus, Mary and Joseph, we give, you our hearts and our souls."

 

John Keane. who left his native parish when, a boy and spent 44 years beneath the Southern Cross, returned blessed with health, wealth and religious fervour, anxious to participate in the good work in thankfulness for God's providence in his undertakings, erected a stained-glass window at the eastern or Gospel side of the altar bearing the image of St. Patrick, whose faith he cherished in his darkest hour, and which was ever to him a beacon of hope.

 

The young men of the parish volunteered most generously to follow the example set them by their lady relatives, and erected a stained-glass window at the Epistle, side of the altar, bearing the image of St. Brigid —The Mary of Ireland. Two other stained-glass windows—plain, one on either side, have also been erected. The windows are beautiful specimens of artistic workmanship, executed and erected by an Irish firm, Messrs. Clarke and Co., Dublin, showing what can be done by Irish brains, fostered and encouraged by Irish patronage.  The inside of the walls has been newly painted, the shades of which blending with the reflection from the windows, produce a sombre light which helps to excite feelings of veneration unknown before.  Another generous donor hearing of the improvements to be effected in his native parish church, wished to testify his love for Gods- kindness to him, and affection for his deceased parents and brothers, by offering to erect- subject to Fr. Garvey's approval the Stations of the Cross. Needless to say, the offer was as freely accepted as it was generously made. To this gentleman. Mr. Wm Leahy, a thriving merchant in the town of Listowel; is due the credit of bringing to a worthy completion the anxious labours of Fr. Garvey, who has had the satisfaction  of giving to his flock a church worthy of him and a credit to themselves. To bless and indulgence these Stations of the Cross, Fr. Alphonsus, O.S.F., travelled specially from Killarney, arriving in the village at-1.30 amid a downpour of sleet which fell at intervals all the morning. Immediately he ascended the altar and selected as the subject of his discourse, "If you wish to have life everlasting in you. you must take up My Cross and follow Me." He eloquently pointed out what the Stations were —resting spots in our Lord's way to Calvary, all sanctified by the sacred blood of Our Lord, that they are indulgenced for the souls in Purgatory and placed before the congregation the necessity of being faithful to deceased friends—how the Stations can be made a source of grace, and impressed most forcibly devotions to them. He next proceeded to bless the Stations, after which Fr. Garvey and Fr. Lyne assisted in their erection. Fr. Alphonsus next returned thinks to the good pastors who assisted him after which the proceedings terminated with six Our Fathers and six Hail Marys.

OBSEQUIES OF THE LATE REV. P. GARVEY, P.P. Newtownsandes.

 

The obsequies of the late Rev. P Garvey, P.P., Newtownsandes, took place on Wednesday. There was a large attendance of priests and notwithstanding that the day was inclement, and that it was a fair day in Listowel, there was a big and representative attendance of the general public. Father Garvey's record, both as a zealous priest and a splendid Irishman, was widely known, and it is therefore, only natural that the expressions of regret at his demise should have been so sincere and so general. Office and High Mass commenced in the Newtownsandes Church at 11 o'clock a m., the Very Rev. A. Canon Murphy, P.P., V.F., Brosna, presiding. The choir consisted of the following clergymen—Very Rev. P. Marshall, President St. Brendan's Seminary, Killarney; Very Rev. P. Canon Hayes. P.P., V.F., Ballylongford ; Rev M. O'Flaherty, C.C., Brosna; Rev. T. O'Flaherty, C.C, Newtownsandes; Rev. M O'Brien, Rev. P. Breen, C.C, Tralee; Rev P. J. Breen , C.C, Kenmare; Rev. D. O'Sullivan, CC., Milltown. The celebrant of the High Mass was Rev James O'Sullivan, PP., Fossa; deacon, Rev.  M. D. Allman, P.P., _Ballyheigue: subdeacon. Rev. T. Lyne, C.C. Tralee: master of ceremonies, Rev. J. O'Carroll, C.C, Newtownsandes.

THOUGHT: How do we get rid of darkness? By rebuking it? By seeking to rid our environments of it? No. The answer to stopping darkness is to bring light into the situation. Darkness cannot stay if light comes. The question is not “How do we remove the darkness?” It is “How can I turn the light on in this situation? --Steve Backlund.

 

GOLDEN Jubilee of Moyvane Church; Homily by Fr. Pat Ahern, September 30th, 2006

 

I’m wondering how many of you here this evening were here on August 26th 1956, when this church was opened and blessed by the late Bishop Denis Moynihan. I suspect not all that many. Fifty years is a long time. Half a century. Many, many changes. Many people no longer with us.

 

I was still a student at the time – in Maynooth. A year later I said my first Mass here, said it in Latin with my back to the people; for that was the way Mass was said here during the first seven or eight years of the life of this Church.

 

I remember the opening day well. I remember coming to the village the evening before – came in for choir practice with the local choir. The whole village was alive with activity, last minute preparations. People painting, cleaning windows, people on ladders putting up bunting, hanging flags on telegraph poles. One sensed an air of great expectation and excitement.

 

I have a memory of the Mass next day, of the then P.P. Fr. Danny O’Sullivan, who was then in failing health. He was in a wheelchair seated here in the Sanctuary. And a proud man he was. His dream was now a reality.

 

Apparently he hadn’t seen the church until it was finished. When he was wheeled in here a few days before the opening, word is that he was dumbfounded – speechless. He had no idea the Church would be so high and so spacious. At a reception for guests after the opening Mass he made a speech, during which he said “Exegi monumentum aëre perennius” “I have raised up a monument more lasting than bronze” He liked to draw attention to certain features of the Church. One was the rose window at the back. That was a great curiosity; no one had ever seen a rose window in these parts before. Another feature was the spire – which people at the time were disappointed in, far too small, it was felt, out of proportion, considering the great height and bulk of the building. But of course it wasn’t a spire at all! – as Fr. Dan was at pains to point out. It was, he used to insist a fleche, FLÈCHE…French for an arrow. (so we mustn’t be calling it a spire!) Anyway the poor man didn’t enjoy his monument for very long, because he died just five weeks after the Church was opened. His Anniversary was last Thursday. We remember him fondly and pray for the repose of his soul. (Just a snippet of Fr Ahern’s talk)

 

 

 

Mothers Letter.

 

 

 

On your 40th Birthday 1999.

 

Dear Daughter.

 

 

 

In September 1953, with no portfolios of interviews but with God’s grace and blessing, Dad and I together procured the most rewarding prestigious profession, that of starting with the first step up of the fourteen step ladder of life, eight female and six male steps. There is a saying “Life is not a bed of roses” there were a few thorns but don’t we all need a little pinch sometimes to urge us on.

 

While climbing that ladder, there was always joy, merriment, happiness and love galore.

 

We found you on the 7th step with the same joy as the previous and following ones. Each finding was a miracle, to stay awake at night waiting and listening for every breath was like watching the stars.

 

On the 13th step God decide that that little one was not for this world and in his mercy took him back again, that was around my 40th birthday. In March 1975 we reached the top step.

 

At the summet now for quite a few years we feel like shouting to the world with jubilation. Every one of you have made us proud, if we had to relive our lives we would have fourteen more if they were all like you lot.

 

The pinch of the thorn in your case was the Dad and I took you by the little 4 year old hands; you dressed in a little check suit and hat to match and walked you into hospital, Dad and I having tuberculosis and you having contacted it too. That sting didn’t last long because on our first visit you were so full of fun, jumping on the bed, almost hitting the ceiling with your newfound first boyfriend, we knew you were cured already and so cured us.

 

When household chores were a must you always played your part. Your favourite chore was keeping a blazing welcoming fire, how you managed it back ways I still can’t figure out. Of course you had a fascination for heat, you managed to get the Renault radiator to boil at Moll’s Gap and got your siblings to draw the water with their shoes. On a boat trip to England you did some stoking too or so I’m told. We could write a library full of books in praise our family, but who would read them. Everybody knows we are cute movers when it comes to choosing partners too.

THOUGHT: One of the most difficult defilements of the spirit to deal with is the critical spirit. A critical spirit has its root in pride. Because of the 'plank' of pride in our own eye, we are not capable of dealing with the 'speck' of need in someone else. We are often like the Pharisee who, completely unconscious of his own need, prayed "God, I thank you that I am not like other men" (Luke 18:11). We are quick to see - and to speak of - the faults of others, but slow to see our own needs. How sweetly we relish the opportunity to speak critically of someone else - even when we are unsure of the facts. We forget that "A man who stirs up dissension among brothers" by criticising one to another is one of the "six things which the Lord hates" (Proverbs 6:16-19) --Jerry Bridges.

 

NOTE from Tom Aherne; A memorial plaque to commemorate the Sheehy brothers erected at the Broadford Community Enterprise Centre was unveiled on Sunday July 16 at 2pm. The unveiling  performed by their relative Dr. Micheline Sheehy Skeffington. This July is the 100th anniversary of the death of Fr. Eugene Sheehy, the Broadford born priest who became known the length and breadth of the country and further afield as the Land League Priest and Champion of the Tenant Farmer and Agriculture Labourers. Fr. Eugene served as Curate in Kilmallock from 1876 to 1884 and he was appointed Administrator and afterwards Parish Priest of Rockhill/Bruree from 1884 to 1909. David Sheehy who was married to Elizabeth (Bessie) McCoy of Curramore House Ballyhahill, was the Irish Parliamentary Party M.P. for South Galway from 1885 to 1900 and M.P. for South Meath from 1903 to 1918

STEVE JOBS: The last words of Steve Jobs -

 

I have come to the pinnacle of success in business.

 

In the eyes of others, my life has been the symbol of success.

 

However, apart from work, I have little joy. Finally, my wealth is simply a fact to which I am accustomed.

 

At this time, lying on the hospital bed and remembering all my life, I realize that all the accolades and riches of which I was once so proud, have become insignificant with my imminent death.

 

In the dark, when I look at green lights, of the equipment for artificial respiration and feel the buzz of their mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of my approaching death looming over me.

 

Only now do I understand that once you accumulate enough money for the rest of your life, you have to pursue objectives that are not related to wealth.

 

It should be something more important:

 

For example, stories of love, art, dreams of my childhood.

 

No, stop pursuing wealth, it can only make a person into a twisted being, just like me.

 

God has made us one way, we can feel the love in the heart of each of us, and not illusions built by fame or money, like I made in my life, I cannot take them with me.

 

I can only take with me the memories that were strengthened by love.

 

This is the true wealth that will follow you; will accompany you, he will give strength and light to go ahead.

 

Love can travel thousands of miles and so life has no limits. Move to where you want to go. Strive to reach the goals you want to achieve. Everything is in your heart and in your hands.

 

What is the world's most expensive bed? The hospital bed.

 

You, if you have money, you can hire someone to drive your car, but you cannot hire someone to take your illness that is killing you.

 

Material things lost can be found. But one thing you can never find when you lose: life.

 

Whatever stage of life where we are right now, at the end we will have to face the day when the curtain falls.

 

Please treasure your family love, love for your spouse, love for your friends...

 

Treat everyone well and stay friendly with your neighbours.

THOUGHT: The brave who focus on all things good and all things beautiful and all things true, even in the small, who give thanks for it and discover joy even in the here and now, they are the change agents who bring fullest Light to all the world. --Ann Voskamp.

 

Another view: Any time you find yourself worrying about anything, or upset because someone has dishonoured or betrayed you, it is only because you have placed your faith in something other than Jesus. As such, you have lost your faith in Him and instead put it in something or someone else. --Ted Dekker.

 

ROY BUCKLEY, many were wondering who Roy Buckley was at the Moyvane concert recently.

 

Roy Buckley is a singer, songwriter, musician, recording artist, Guinness World Record breaker and founder of The Song Collector Sessions from Cork City, Ireland. His music has been described as passionate and real by his peers, and he creates an indelible atmosphere with his audience through his unique voice and folk sound. The knowledge of folk songs that Roy possesses along with the stories that go with them, combined with the vast amount he has in his repertoire, have earned him affectionate nicknames such as "The Irish Song Book" among friends in the music business.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD, together with Minister with Responsibility for Defence Paul Kehoe TD, Honour the Courageous Actions of Irish Soldiers at the Battle of Jadotville in September 1961 with the Award of a Medal

 

 

 

The Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD, together with Minister with Responsibility for Defence, Paul Kehoe TD, have today decided to award a medal to the men of “A” Company, 35thInfantry Battalion and the next of kin of deceased members, to give full and due recognition in honour of their courageous actions at the Battle of Jadotville in September 1961.

 

 

 

Speaking of the decision, the Taoiseach said “I am very pleased to announce this decision to award medals to the men of “A” Company. This fully recognises their bravery and courage during the unique circumstances of the Siege of Jadotville. The UN peacekeeping operation in the Congo was the first time the UN deployed a significant military force and it was also one of Ireland’s earliest UN peacekeeping operations. I want to take the opportunity to also recall the contribution of all the members of the Defence Forces who served over the course of this Mission.”

 

 

 

Minister Kehoe said “The Siege of Jadotville is burned into the memory of so many Irish people who followed the events through the newspapers of the time. One of the first decisions which I made on my appointment to Office was to honour the men of “A” Company by presenting a Unit Citation in recognition of their collective actions at the Siege. The decision taken today to also honour these men with a medal is an exceptional step which builds upon last year’s ceremony and gives full recognition to their performance at the Siege.”

 

Minister Kehoe added “I would also like to commend the men and women of our Defence Forces who are currently deployed in many missions in the cause of peace. Their continued participation in United Nations missions illustrates the very positive difference that small countries, like Ireland, can make in the world’s trouble spots. Their dedication and the sacrifices which they are making, together with that of their families, is always to the forefront of my mind.”

 

The Department of Defence and the Military Authorities will work together to make the arrangements for the awarding of these medals. Given the process required, this will take some time.

Note for the Editors

 

The siege of Jadotville was an event that occurred during Ireland’s peacekeeping mission in the Congo in September 1961. ‘A’ Company of the 35th Infantry Battalion took responsibility for the UN post at Jadotville on the 3rd of September. On the 9th of September they were surrounded by a large force of Katangese Gendarmerie and early on the morning of the 13thSeptember the Company came under attack. Over the coming days until 17thSeptember they endured almost continuous attacks from ground and air.

 

Despite their courageous resistance and the sustained efforts of 35 Infantry Battalion HQ to provide assistance, ‘A’ Company was taken into captivityon 17thSeptember. By this time ‘A’ Company had no water and several men had been wounded. ‘A’ Company remained in captivity until finally released on 25th October 1961.

 

The United Nations Operation in Congo was the first peacekeeping mission in which significant numbers of Irish soldiers took part. A total of 6,000 Irish soldiers served in the Congo from 1960 until 1964.

LEFT: But recent months have spoiled the humour. Between the relentless efforts by Deep State actors to sabotage a presidency, and the rising frenzy of hatred that has burst forth from the left, one thing is clear. We’ve stumbled from farce to the blackest kind of satire, the kind that bleeds over sometimes into the tragic. We’re not living out Idiocracy. Instead we’re re-enacting Dostoevsky’s The Possessed.

TOILETS: New York City Has Taken 7.5 Years and $2 Million to Build a 400-Square-Foot Public Bathroom

 

 

 

In total, the project has taken seven and a half years so far, with each square foot costing around $5,000.

 

 

 

Crazy public bathroom prices aren’t uncommon in New York City.  In February 2014, the New York Daily News reported on a 1,225 square-foot bathroom at a playground in Sheepshead Bay that cost $2.6 million. (From News report)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LONGEST DAY: The following description is edited from a piece written in 1943 by an old schoolmaster who lived in West Limerick:

 

 

 

…old people of thirty years ago and more remembered how the fire used to be lit exactly at sunset and had to be watched and tended until long after midnight. Prayers use to be said to obtain God’s blessing on the crops, then at the peak-point of summer bloom.

STEPHEN STACK – P.R. FOR THE PHIL COULTER CONCERT: Stephen Stack volunteered to do P.R. for the Phil Coulter concert. He did an excellent job. Well done Stephen! He writes: Good people of Moyvane Parish you did yourself proud last night. It shows what a small North Kerry community can do when its joins forces and works together. I, as the PR person would like to thank a number of people. Our Parish Priest Fr. Kevin, Parish Secretary Jackie, PPC Chairperson Amanda and the Pastoral and Finance Council and the huge number of volunteers for their help and support. Thanks to the following journalists Donal Nolan, Michelle Crean, Marisa Reidy, Denis Walsh, Jerry O'Sullivan and Marian O'Flaherty who helped in the pre-concert promotion. A special word of thanks to Phil Coulter's PA Moira who made it possible for me to set up a pre-concert interview on local radio from Spain. To local photographers John Kelliher, Tom Fitzgerald and Liz Brosnan for their great work on the night.

 

To Moyvane as a whole it was an excellent night and a job well done, a pleasure to watch a craftsman that is Phil Coulter and Roy Buckley in our home village. -- Stephen Stack  P.R. Parish

 

DUAGH PARISH notes; A Special Celebration to reflect the life of Father Pat Moore on what would be his 60th birthday on Saturday 10th June @ 7.30pm in St Bridgid's Church , followed by refreshments and local entertainment in true Fr Pat Style.

 

Slán go fóill to our parish priest of 12 years, the Priest who helped so many, many people.  Duagh was given the Blessing that was Fr. Pat.  The resounding laughter – remember – The Pimple, The wart, The Magic Horses of Cill Stuithín and of course his final book “Weathering the Storm”.

 

The storyteller, who would always have a relevant Gospel message, but would turn comic to send us home with a good joke and a smile on our face.Fr Pat is the eternal optimist who was accessible to each and every one of us, evidenced by the doors he opened and the gates he didn’t close.

 

We will remember him with fondness, and continue to remember him in our Prayers

 

May he rest in peace.

DEATH AND FUNERAL OF SISTER REGIS KENNELLY, PRESENTATION CONVENT, LISTOWEL.

 

The death of Sister Regis Kennelly, of the Presentation Convent, Listowel, which occurred at a private Nursing Home in Dublin on Monday, in the 51st year of her life, and the 31st of her religious profession, has occasioned genuine regret throughout North Kerry district. Her death has left the Presentation Order bereft of a member who was kind, loving and obliging, for it may be safely said of Sister Regis that she was geniality personified. As a teacher she devoted her noble mind and brilliant talent to the teaching and upbringing of her pupils in the path of morality and learning, and left nothing undone to further their future prospects. During her whole time she endeared herself to parents and scholars alike, many of whom travelled many miles to be present at her funeral.

 

On Tuesday the remains were met outside the town by a large concourse o£ people, who conveyed them to the Convent Chapel. High Mass was celebrated for the repose of the soul of deceased. Very Rev. Canon White presided, the celebrant being Rev. J. Moynihan, S.T.L., President, St. Michael's College, Listowel; Rev. E. O'Riordan, C.C., deacon; Rev. J . McGrath, C.C.. sub-deacon; Rev. A. J. Molyneaux, C.C., Tralee, master of ceremonies

KERRY— Death of a Religious.

 

In the cemetery attached to the Presentation Convent, Listowel, on December 2, the remains of Sister Mary John, who had spent forty-six years in religion were laid to rest. Deceased lady was a daughter of the late Mr. John Grant, Listowel, and a grand-daughter of the late Mr. Maurice Dalton, who was one of the first Catholics appointed to the magistracy after the relaxation of the penal laws.

 

LYNCH: New Zealand Tablet, Volume XXI, Issue 49, 6 April 1894, Page 9

 

The following recently appeared in the Kerry Post.

 

A young man named Lynch, a native of Listowel, is reported to have very cleverly effected his escape from Cork gaol a few days ago. Lynch was arrested on a charge of desertion from the Munster Fusiliers, and was temporarily detained in the gaol pending the arrival of a military escort. While the warder was inspecting Lynch’s cell the latter slipped out, and almost got out to the corridor when the warder sprung upon him. Lynch, then getting the better of his gaoler, pushed him back into the cell, and having in the twinkling of an eye shut the door, quickly turned the key, and thus locked the warder securely in the cell. By the means of a pass key, Lynch gained the open air, free. He then made for Listowel, where, however, he was again apprehended and conveyed to Dublin under a military escort from his regiment.

DEATH OF REV. MOTHER TERESA KELLY PRESENTATION CONVENT, LISTOWEL. [Communicated)

 

NOT only the religious and Catholic laity of the diocese of Kerry, but the large circle, besides, by whom she was known and venerated, will feel with regret that the blank left in her community by the death of Reverend Mother Teresa Kelly on Wednesday last, will be long before it ceases to be suffered from. A long life of activity, intelligence and holiness, under trying circumstances, endeared her to all who know her personally or by report.

 

Upwards of fifty years ago Miss Kelly entered the Presentation Convent, Killarney, and soon after passing through an edifying novitiate was appointed superioress. In this important office she distinguished herself by bar prudence and zeal alike; her charity knew no limit, and yet she never involved her community in embarrassments. During her term of office in Killarney, the first of the monks of La Trappe, whose abbey is now so well known at Mount Melleray, near Cappoquin, came to this country from France. They were penniless, and depended for support on the charity of the people. The first of those who stretched out the hand to help them was Rev. Mother Teresa, her influence procured them a house to live in, and her pecuniary aid to their establishment in Ireland was important. Visitors to the Abbey of Mount Melleray may hear of a lady who is publicly prayed for by the monks as a great benefactress to their order, well-known to the older brothers, this lady is Mother Teresa. All, but a few old monks on crutches, have died, of the brothers who came over from France, and as silence is one of the chief disciplines of La Trappe, few of the present community know the name of the lady for whom the public prayers are offered.

 

Having filled with honour the office, of superioress at Killarney for several years, Mother Teresa, with a few sisters, left the community to found a convent at Milltown, a small town at the bend of Dingle Bay. Under her able government, this undertaking prospered, and the schools attached were filled with the children of the peasantry and townspeople. Here Mother Teresa remained until she had passed her fiftieth year. At this period of life few men or women undertake new and important works, but Mother Teresa, hearing of the great want of educational establishments in North Kerry, consented to break her attachments to the convent she had founded and made prosperous, and begin anew in Listowel. She founded the convent of Holy Cross in that town onwards of twenty years ago, with three assistant sisters. Of her acts of charity during the famine, years no praise could be too loud. She was the chief reliance of priests and people in that district during that dreary period. Her small community gradually gained accessions, and on the day of her death she had the happiness to see it one of the most prosperous and beloved of the Presentation Convents.

 

Many priests on the foreign and home missions owe the means which enabled them to prosecute, their studies to this holy woman, and would regret her loss were they not Euro that she has passed to a place where the virtues she practised and the peace she loved and taught here are eternal.

 

 

 

TROCAIRE Facts and figures:

 

   Global land deals in the last 10 years total 200 million hectares, equivalent to 25 times the size of the Ireland being sold or leased

 

    High consumption living globally increases the demand for land. Vast swathes of vital rainforest are cleared every day to make way for palm oil production.

 

    Palm oil prolongs shelf life of food – almost half of all products in supermarkets contain palm oil, including biscuits, ice cream, processed foods, cleaning products, cosmetics.

 

Most of the world’s poor share three traits:

 

   They live in rural areas – 75% of the world’s poor live in rural areas

 

    They rely on land, forests and agriculture to survive

 

    They do not have legal control over the land and natural resources on which they depend.

THE BRUFF SCHOOL.

 

ATTACK AGAINST THE "LIMERICK LEADER." Dublin, Thursday. To-day in the Nisi Prius Court No. 1. before Mr .Justice O'Brien and a special jury, the hearing was commenced of Thomas Bowman v. Jeremiah Buckley. The plaintiff was a school-master, qualified under the National Education Board, and he brought the action against the defendant as proprietor of the '"Limerick Leader" to recover damages laid at £500 for libels published in that paper. The defendant traversed the course of action generally, and pleaded fair comment. Counsel for the plaintiff –the  MacDermott Q. C; Mr Seymour Bushe. Q C. and M C P Doyle (instructed by Mr James Doyle. Counsel for the defendant- Mr F L O'Shaughnessy, Q C; Mr. J H Campbell, Q C, and Mr J Powell.

 

The MacDermott , Q C, stated the plaintiff's case. He said that he had been a teacher at Cappamore , and in the month of November 1897, the school of Bruff became  vacant It had up to the 23rd September, 1897, been taught by the Christian  Brothers, who then retired. The parish priest of Bruff was the Rev Dean Cussen, who was anxious to have good primary education for the poor children of his parish. He built the school , and he entered into an agreement with the Christian  Brothers that they should teach the children on certain terms. Those terms were that they Should always have at least two teachers there, they were to receive £60 a year, and in addition £30 a year for a lay brother as distinguished from a school brother. A controversy arose the merits or demerits of which

 

 of which in his judgment were wholly foreign to the controversy  which they had to try. Mr Bowman the plaintiff, had nothing whatever to do with that controversy between the ecclesiastical authorities of Limerick and the Christian Brothers. The Bruff school thus became vacant , and plaintiff was appointed from amongst a number of candidates. The Limerick Leader" then commenced a series of violent attacks on Mr Bowman. The first article was published on the 26th November, 1897, as follows—" If they (meaning the Christian Brothers) " be not recalled, this much may at all events , be taken for granted, that the strong men of Bruff , backed by this journal will make, as we have  already hinted, the lives of the grabbers of the evicted Brothers  schools a hell upon earth." The following article was published on the 1st December , 1897—" It was Father M’Namara's intention to open the evicted Schools on yesterday, a brand new teacher named Bowman or No-Man having been somehow or other secured to take the place of the pious Brothers, but the sterling men and women of brave and faithful Bruff trooped in their hundreds to the spot, and put—well, in homely Celtic parlance—they put the kibaush on the Very Rev gentleman's little plan and the school did not open.

Looking for information on O'Donnell ancestors

 

I am looking for information on John (Sean) O'Donnell.  I did have someone send me a message indicating that they had found baptism records for a John O'Donnell in July 1797 in your parish.  I have found information that his birthdate could be 1797 or 1799.  i am having trouble finding out much about him back in Ireland.  He married Margaret Carroll in Ireland & I believe two of their children, Thomas & Mary were both born in Ireland before emigrating to Canada.   Hope someone can help.

Mr Irwln—In consequence of what was said to you did you go to the house of Mr J Flavin?—I did, sir; he was In his shop, and I asked him what charge had he against me—did I do him any harm, or how did I deserve it; Mr Flavin then said to me to come to the League room to clear myself, I said I would; there was no more ; I left Flavin's house then. (Witness continuing) said I  remembered the 23rd April when he got a letter written to Flavin by his daughter; he remembered the following day Sunday the 24th; he attended at Listowel  on that day and went to the Federation room; he saw Mr Flavin there ; he asked him If he had received his letter and Mr Flavin said he had. Mr Flavin then read the letter for the meeting, and his case was brought before it; John Dillane was there; Mr Flavin did not take the chair on that occasion, nor did he see anyone else in it; James Cotter was present-with others; Dillane did not bring any charge against him for having taken the land; he said he (witness) was an emergency man, and witness said that if he was an emergency man Dillane was another ; Cotter did not say anything but, " Dooling it is better to settle and be good friends."

It was to cater for the children of the parishes of Loughill/Ballyhahill, Moyvane, Glin, Athea, Lenamore/Ballylongford and Tarbert itself.

 

When it opened its doors in September 1973 the school had an intake of 280 students with 18 teaching staff, 2 caretakers and one secretary. Since then numbers have continued to grow with a constant student enrollment of over 600.

THOUGHT: The circumstances and events that we see as setbacks are oftentimes the very things that launch us into periods of intense spiritual growth. Once we begin to understand this, and accept it as a spiritual fact of life, adversity becomes easier to bear. -Charles Stanley.

 

NATIONAL HOLY WELLS DAY June 18th

 

There are around 3,000 Holy Wells in Ireland. Since early Christian times these have been seen as places of prayer and healing. National Holy Wells Day invites you to become aware of how precious water is. Visit a local Holy Well and pray for the protection of water. Plan with others how you can protect the water in your area.

 

From Kerry Diocese site.

 

Gathering at St. Brigids Well in Derryra, Ballyduff, Co Kerry on the eve of St Brigid’s Day at 5pm Having met and parked near the nearby Cashen river we now approached the well slowly to the sound of a bodhrán. One of us had placed beautiful lanterns and candles around the well and a St. Brigid’s cross. Twelve of us had gathered, and just before we started to walk we were reminded

 

of the sacredness of the place we were about to enter...sacred for our ancestors who had also come here to pray and do the rounds. Then encircling the well, we listened to Gamhain Molta Bríde and

 

some of us joined in at times ,a haunting recording by Noirin Ni Riain.

 

Then we heard a little about Brigid herself, a woman of liminal time... on the boundaries,

 

between pagan and Christian, born at sunrise as her mother crossed the threshold, daughter of a slave and chief, a woman who reached out to those on the margins, building a monastery for both women and men, who loved creation and needed solitude and contemplation. Mary who had

 

written a book**about wells in North Kerry told us a little of this particular well, Tobar a’Leighis

 

,situated beside the roadside beside an existing rath, giving the townland its name ‘Doire Rá tha Beag’.Then we listened to the legend of Brigid’s cloak or brath, while someone cut strips for each of us to take home (to leave out overnight to take in the dew and then use during the year ...said to have healing properties).(See the green hessian cloth on the ground in the photo).

 

Then it was time for a little sacred movement or dance ‘The Pilgrim Walk’, which was a simple way

 

to come into the peace and tranquillity of the place on the roadside near the statue of Brigid, to

 

sense the strength of others as we moved.. to be carried and without any need for perfection or

 

competition. This included a lovely movement of gathering the water....and then we did just that

 

.One of us bent down near the well and carefully filled all our jars....something to take home and to

 

scatter north, south, east and west. Finally ,we thought about the bees....who sadly are in trouble...and recognising that Brigid was possibly a bee keeper, each person received a packet of  wildflower seeds collected in Kerry by Niamh Ni Dhúill, and a page about helping the bees in our gardens from the publication ‘Gardens’ part of the ‘All-Ireland Pollinator Plan’ (www.biodiversityireland.ie/pollinatorplan) It was time for our closing prayer: a Prayer to St

 

.Brigid and part of a ‘Prayer for our Earth’ from Laudato Si’.

 

And then a walk, for some, back to our cars in the light of the beautiful crescent moon and Venus.

 

Sylvia Thompson.

 

 

 

ST Brendan

 

Clonfert — the Irish version of the name means ‘field of miracles’ — is the site of a 6th century monastery of St. Brendan the Navigator. This is the most famous of the many monasteries founded by that great saint. He is more widely known for his extensive travels to spread the faith and accounts of his life are to be found in all the ancient libraries of Europe. Of the two journals attributed to him the “Navigatio” is perhaps the most widely read. This book recounts his journey from Kerry to the Faroes, to Iceland, Greenland and on to America.

 

After St. Brendan’s death Clonfert grew to become a city of learning with well over 3,000 students, many from Britain and Europe. Nothing now remains of the original holy city, but of the succeeding ecclesial buildings the 12th century Cathedral with its beautiful 13th century doorway continues to witness the Christian tradition and is in use for Church of Ireland worship. Tradition has it that St. Brendan is buried opposite the Cathedral door.

ARE YOU AWARE OF THE NCCA SURVEY ON RELIGIOUS EDUCATION IN OUR PRIMARY SCHOOLS?

 

Religious Education will no longer be a subject in the state recognised Primary Schools Curriculum, under the NCCA’s proposal, unless you let your views be known.  Is this a move to remove Religious Education from our schools?  This move devalues and challenges the place and status of Religious Education in our schools. Is this what you want for the future generations of children?  As a matter of urgency parents, teachers, Boards of Management and interested adults need to engage with the survey before closing date 26th May 2017. The NCCA survey is available online: http://www.ncca.ie/en/Curriculum_and_Assessment/Early_Childhood_and_Primary_Education/Primary-Education/Primary_Developments/Structure-and-Time-Allocation)

 

THOUGHT: I am always careful around people who constantly berate themselves because at my expense they might fulfil the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbour as yourself” (Matthew 22:39). If they criticise themselves, they will probably criticise me. --Bill Johnson.

NO CHILDREN

 

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | May 08, 2017

 

As Emmanuel Macron moved toward his landslide victory in the French presidential election, the fashionable media outlets noticed a stunning reality about Europe’s current political leaders:

 

 

 

    Macron, the newly elected French president, has no children.

 

    German chancellor Angel Merkel has no children.

 

    British prime minister Theresa May has no children.

 

    Italian prime minister Paolo Gentiloni has no children.

 

    Holland’s Mark Rutte, Sweden’s Stefan Löfven, Luxembour’s Xavier Bettel, Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon—all have no children.

 

    Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, has no children.

 ST. BRENDAN –BISHOP RAY WRITES

 

I encourage each parish to each year celebrate the Feast of St Brendan, either on the Feast Day

 

,May 16th or a Sunday near it. The Feast occurs at a positive and hopeful time of the year. Nature is full of new life again, our world is green again. New life is born among animals and birds. There can equally be new life to our faith. In honouring St Brendan let us honour all our local Christian heritage. Throughout the diocese there is a tradition of devotion, strong and deep.

 

Notice locally the shrines, halls, schools and churches bearing St Brendan’s name. Notice the stained glass windows and icons and pieces of sculpture or carving and the particular aspects of his life and mission each focuses on. Dates suggest St Brendan could have lived into his nineties, 578 is most often given as the date of his death. St Brendan travelled far, initially to deepen his faith, spending time in such monasteries as Clonard, Co Meath. Later he journeyed in Ireland to share his faith, founding monasteries such as Cloontuskert Co Roscommon, and, Clonfert and Annaghdown, both in Co Galway......Monasteries were places of learning and education for the locality, places of care for the sick and the poor, places of agricultural improvement, -all making present God’s love.

 

Through St Brendan what is God saying to us in our time?

 

As communities today are we challenged and missioned to deepen our faith and to live God’s love with in our communities? The crowds of pilgrims who gather continuously at Fatima remind us of how world-wide the faith gives meaning to people’s lives: how much trouble and distress there is in the world, -how much our world needs, love and care, gentleness and kindness. Can we do anything to share the Gospel of Christ’s love with other communities?

 

O God who helped St Brendan navigate the seas in his eagerness to spread the Gospel; grant us, at his intercession, on our journey through life to set our course according to your peace and bring us to the harbour we desire in heaven.
