June July August 2019
FROM THE RECTOR We have had three school tours of the church and grounds in the last month from primary school students from Old Bawn, who enjoyed good weather and seemed to learn about our church and their own church in ‘compare and contrast’. We also had a visit from ‘An Cosán’ in Jobstown,  founded by Dr. Ann Louise Gilligan and Katherine Zappone TD., whose mission is to empower through education –  providing people of all ages with pathways to learning, leadership and enterprise.

We had our Summer Sale on Sat 11th May and we were blessed with a nice dry day. Thank you to our Sale co-ordinator Ronnie Scott for all his work in the weeks before and on the day. Many thanks to all who helped with the stalls, sale of raffle tickets, setting up the hall, on the day and with the clearing up, all your work is very much appreciated and contributed to the overall success of the day. We wish Ronnie a speedy recovery after he took a tumble off a step ladder while clearing up after the sale, we are glad to hear he is on the mend.

‘Ghost Hares’, a theatrical celebration of the people of South Dublin was playing in the Civic Theatre early in May and told the stories of the lives of people who have lived in the area since it was first developed without the facilities that we all enjoy in Tallaght today. The name of the show came after the writer of the show, Veronica Coburn, had a conversation with a long time resident who described watching hares jumping in the fields from the road before the time of the dual carriageway. Tallaght has come on significantly since those days, really now we are a satellite city of Dublin with a university, teaching hospital, stadium, shopping, hotels, etc …….   It was lovely to see parishioner Ken Cooper (who play the cajon in our Music Group) taking part in the production playing his cajon.

On 25th May I attended the book launch in Tallaght library of ‘From Sunrise To Sunset’ a coffee table book of a collection of images of the wildlife of the Maasai Mara which local man, Michael Finn, photographed in 2015. Many of the featured images have already won international acclaim and helped Michael become Irish Professional Wildlife Photographer of the year in 2017. Beautiful images of many endangered species.

May I take this opportunity to wish all those sitting second level state and third level exams the very best of luck and pray that all your work will pay off. I hope all the readers of the Newsletter have a safe and enjoyable summer.

God Bless                                                                                                                    William.
