Templederry Mission Walk – A Great Success

Setting off on the Mission Walk for Fr. Matt in Brazil
A sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported the very successful Mission walk on Sunday last. Fr. Willie Teehan welcomed everyone for the walk, which he said was always a wonderful community occasion. He introduced Fr. Tadgh Herbert who has worked closely with Fr. Matt in Brazil for many years. Fr. Tadhg spoke about Fr. Matt’s work there and assured everyone that each cent collected would be of great benefit to the poor in this very remote area of Brazil. Fr. Tadhg will be going back to Brazil in a few weeks. To everyone who participated in the walk and to everyone who supported it financially – a very sincere Thank You. It was an outstanding success with about 250 people taking part.

Fr. Matt rang on Sunday night and was amazed to hear that so many people had contributed so generously. He asked that we extend his deep gratitude to everyone and said all will be remembered in his prayers and the prayers of the many people who will benefit from your generosity St. Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians during the week was so appropriate – "God loves a cheerful give… you will be enriched in every way for great generosity…"

At present we have collected more than €10,000 – if anyone would still like to contribute – the fiend will remain open for another 2 weeks. Further details from Marian Harrington. Tel. 0504-52020 / 087-6765133

St. Cualan’s Sponsored Walk

Young power walkers in the St. Cualan’s sponsored walk

St. Cualan’s Annual Sponsored walk took place on Saturday last 20th June. As usual there was a great turn out and we sincerely thank all those who participated or supported the walk in any way. As you can see from the photographs it was a very enjoyable event. Our walk is a method of raising finances that are required to provide social activities etc. for the senior citizens of our parish and in our eyes is a very worthy cause.

Clodagh Macra Ice-Cream Fun Day

Some of the hard-working Macra Members who helped to organise and run the fun day

It has been a very busy weekend for Clodagh Macra. We held our Ice-Cream Fun day, in Templederry on Sunday last. We organised it as a Macra Know Your Neighbour Weekend event, but decided that we would also make some money for a good cause. All the money raised will go to Down Syndrome Ireland.

Despite the weather, a great crowd turned out for what was a very enjoyable day for all. There was plenty of activity for all, with bouncing castles, welly throwing, hurling targets, and many more games. The tug of war competition was very popular with 6 teams entering and the team representing "The Shop", in Glastrigan beat the Clodagh team in the final. There was of course ice-cream and refreshments for all.

A huge thanks must go to all of our memebers who helped to organise and run the event and turned up to support us on the day. As all the money has not been collected yet, we do not have an official figure as to what was raised, but it all goes to a great cause.

Saturday evening saw us compete in the Annual South Tipp raft race. Success eluded us as our raft capsised on a number of occasions, but it was very entertaining nevertheless!
Best of luck also to our farm skills team who are competing this Sunday in Dunmanway for a place in the National Final.

Graduation Day For "First Steps" Montessori School

The Graduates of "First Steps" Montessori School

On Friday June 12th last the pupils of Margo’s Montessori School which operates from the Marian Hall graduated with honours and distinctions. The Children put on an early morning Concert for their parents and families. Each child was then presented with his/her certificate of graduation and then a party followed. There was even a bouncy slide erected to add to the fun and games of the occasion. Over €150 was collected on the day and goes towards a collection for the charity ‘Bóthar’. Well done to the graduates and many thanks to all who made the occasion such a success.

Thumbs up from the Graduates!
