DEATH OF CANON NEVILLE; The news broke at early Mass last Sunday that our beloved, retired PP Canon James Neville had died during the night.  Then the penny dropped that he was now with the Lord and who better to intercede for the Limerick Hurlers than himself and sure enough he worked his first miracle that afternoon and now we must all keep after him for the second. Canon Neville was appointed PP in Abbeyfeale in 1988 and retired to an active ministry in 2003 of saying Mass and helping out in the parish and as a comforting presence in many a sick room.  During his ministry he built the Blessed Sacrament Chapel – that powerhouse of prayer - to quote Fr. Tim Galvin who broke the news of his death at Mass. A very active Adoration Committee was established by the Canon 27 years ago when the chapel was opened and they plan to hold a special vigil while the Canon’s remains are waked in the chapel this Wednesday. A sheet will be available at the church for all those who wish to contribute an hour of their time.   The chapel is well-used with adoration all day Tuesday and Friday and evening adoration Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and 24 hour adoration during Lent.  It’s also used for small weddings as it seats up to 60 people comfortably and by families with small children who want to attend Sunday Mass, with prayer groups and reading groups based there too.  It’s an oasis of peace in a busy town where people can pop in for a moment of contemplation and peace and for all those years past the Canon could be found there on his knees praying at any hour.   Canon Neville was also the man behind the building of the Day Care Centre and 23 sheltered houses which opened in 1996.  I remember the first meeting he called to start working on this huge undertaking and the ideas being floated for raising the money needed.  The late Ted Mulcahy, a member of the parish pastoral council and a great friend of the Canon’s was invited to shave his fine head of hair for a fundraiser and agreed reluctantly( he was afraid that his hair would grow back grey!) provided the rest of us could raise at least 5,000 pounds for his locks!    Anyway a fund raising  committee was set up,  the enterprise went ahead (without Ted having to shave his head) and has provided a welcome to countless people who have been able to spend their retirement years there in comfort and safety.  The Day Care Centre too is a monument to his forethought and provides a social outlet for people from the area and hinterland two days every week with a bus picking up people and bringing them in for a hot meal. I leave it to others to tell the stories of the Canon’s prowess on the hurling pitch, of his passionate support for Limerick GAA, of his fondness for skiing and in later years his trips up the Hill when it snowed in order to ski downhill, but suffice to say Abbeyfeale has lost a man who leaves a legacy that will serve this community well for many years to come
