6th Sunday of Easter 1st May 2016


They say a problem shared is a problem halved. ‘Don’t worry’ is one of the most reassuring things that a friend can say.
Isn’t it a relief when someone assures us there is no need to fret or worry, that everything will be okay? If only for a
moment, we can breathe a sigh of relief, take the pressure off ourselves. Even if things are messy now, we dare to hope
that all will be well.

Lynally Mass and Gathering Oct. 2014

Since 2007 a small number of parishioner, mainly from Lynally gathers for Mass or Rosary at the ruins of the old monastic church in and around the end of Sept. (Sept 26th is thought to be the Feastday of St Colman). Bad weather often kept people away but this year we were blessed with one of the loveliest evenings. It was sheer mystical and the setting sun shone across the 40/50 people who turned up to honour those who were buried in this cemetery. Those present were in no hurry to go home but lingered and chatted to one another for a long time after Mass. Once again thanks to Mattie Mooney and the Mooney Family for facilitating us each year for this event. But it is disappointing that the Council is no longer cutting the grass in this graveyard and if OPW does not act soon the walls of the old Monastery will come toppling down with the weight of ivy. And what a shame that would be. Can anyone champion the cause of LYNALLY. Please.
