CHRISTMAS CANDLES: Our compliments to Father Tom for his display of candle light at mass last Saturday evening Jan 1st. The church was lit up with up to one hundred candles at various points around the Church.
It was a most uplifting display especially from a spiritual point of view. The congregation were most impressed by the display.
Congratulations and best wishes to Patricia Egan Glanmore Kenagh and Dr Afshin Nasoodi , Victoria Hospital Belfast who were married in Saint Dominic's Church Kenagh on December 28th. Celebrant of the marriage ceremony was Farther Tom Barden PP Kenagh. Bridesmaid was Norah Egan and best man was Ryan De Freitas. Flowergirls were Emer McMahon, Aisling McMahon and Annabel Flemming. Church music was rendered by the Castle String Quartet. The reception was held in Glasson Country Club which was attended by about one hundred guests and family. Their honey moon will be spent in Australia later in the year.
As we mentioned in last week's notes the weather is still foremost in people's minds after one of the most severe freeze ups since records began. Even though the weather has softened considerably since Christmas day there is a serious fallout from the hard frost. Shortage of water from leakages , frozen underground pipes, damaged systems in attics and burst pipes are very much in evidence since the thaw. As we stated there is a lot to be learned for future consideration such as heated attics, burying pipes deeper and insulation of exposed pipes and fittings.
