Teresa Stapleton, Marie O’Connell, Mai Ryan and Biddy Ryan at the Prayer Garden in Kilcommon during the St. Cualan’s day trip recently
A "céad míle fáilte" awaited them when they arrived at the Abbey Court Hotel and here they received a "feast fit for a king". Phil Maher their muscian and friend entertained them in the residence lounge. Fr. Michael was their MC and as usual seranaded them with a few songs. The evening concluded with Fr. Nicholas their chairman thanking both committee members and supporters for their contribution in making their trip such a enjoyable occasion.

Ring of Kerry Cycle 2009
John Slattery, Ruairi O’Connell, Trevor Groome and PJ Delaney during their recent ‘pedal through the Kingdom’
The rain which had stopped by Killorglin reappeared again leaving Kenmare and made the last 20 miles to Killarney (including the climb up Moll’s Gap) a bit more difficult. However, all five completed the course safely and although stiff and sore enjoyed a few nice "cups of tea" in the teashops of Killarney that evening. The organisers of the cycle nominate a number of different Kerry charities as beneficiaries each year and this year’s charities included among others, charities supporting Alzheimers, Autism and Downs Syndrome. Thanks to all who supported these charities by sponsoring the lads. They hope to take part again next year so if anyone is interested make contact with any of the above (the more the merrier) and you can begin your training. It’s never too early.
