World Mission Sunday! Today Sunday 21st October: Today we come together for a truly incredible celebration of solidarity and unity within our Church – World Mission Sunday! Today, every single parish worldwide – and YOU – share wheat you can so the life-transforming work of missionaries overseas can continue.

It is part of a worldwide network of over 120 charities. Many of the international offices go by the name of ‘Missio’. World Missions Ireland and their fellow charities ensure that today’s contributions are distributed justly to where the need is greatest within our Universal Church. Today, your prayers and generosity are helping spread the peace and love of Christ. If you have already given, we send our heartfelt thanks. If you have yet to give, please dig a little deeper and share what you can. To donate €4 you can text the word ‘Mission’ to 50300 (Texts cost €4. World Missions Ireland will receive a minimum of €3.60). Or call us Monday to Friday on 014972035 to donate over the phone.

Sunday 7th October: It’s Mission Month 2018: October is Mission Month! The most important day of this month is World Mission Sunday, which takes place on the 21st. This is the one Sunday in the year that Pope Francis asks you to pray a little stronger and dig a little deeper so that faith, hope and love can flourish. Contributions given on World Mission Sunday will support the fearless and selfless work of our missionaries, who live shoulder to shoulder with people in communities that are struggling and often war-torn. Mission Month and Mission Sunday is a time for you to full appreciate the dedication of these missionaries who are there before, during and after any crisis.
Proposed Pastoral Plan: There are 60 Parishes in Limerick Diocese but not enough priests to continue providing services as we have been up to now. During the recent Synod and in discussions ever since we have been forming a Pastoral Plan for the Diocese. Bishop Brendan Leahy and others are now working on a list of 16 Pastoral Areas across the Diocese. He is meeting with Priests at the moment to hear their views on the consequences of these changes and later he will meet with groups of Pastoral Councils to hear their concerns. Glin Parish is in the Knockpatrick Pastoral Area which includes Loughill/Ballyhahill, Shanagolden/Foynes/Roberstown, Coolcappa/Kilcolman and Ardagh/Carrickerry. Those 5 Parishes will be expected to work out new arrangements to best serve our mission in the near future. I hope you will reflect on this major development and prepare for this change which is imminent. In the next few weeks there will be a Pastoral Council Meeting in each Parish to prepare for a meeting with Bishop Leahy. Fr. T. Crawford.
Glin Development Association is delighted that they have received €96,000 under the Town & Village Renewal Scheme 2018 from the Department of Rural & Community Affairs to fund an Interpretative & Tourist Centre at Glin Library.
Tourist Office/Interpretative Centre: Cllr John Sheahan welcomes the allocation of €96,000 to convert the unused part of Glin Library to a Tourist Office/Interpretative Museum to tell the story of the history of Glin. The project was funded under the Town and Village Renewal fund from the department of Rural and Community Affairs. This project was initiated by Glin Development Association who worked with Limerick City and County Council in putting a proposal together for the Department. The hard work of Glin Development Association and Limerick City and County Council has to be acknowledged in bringing this funding to Glin. I was glad as the local councillor to assist in delivering this funding and looking forward in assisting Glin Development Association to bring it to fruition.
Coffee Morning: In aid of Milford Hospice and the Mid-Western Cancer Foundation on this Sunday 7th October in O’Shaughnessys Bar after 11am Mass.

Knockaranna Walk: Limerick County Council have closed a section of the footpath on the Knockaranna walk just beyond the Town Park Centenary Footbridge on Adams Garage side of the Glencorbry River. Due to high tides the path has been undermined and was deemed dangerous for walkers. Glin Development have been in contact with the Council for some time highlighting the problem. The Council have agreed to repair the path as soon as funding becomes available. As this section of the Glin Heritage Walking Trails is used by many walkers one hopes that Limerick County Council will repair the path as quickly as possible.

Cleanup of Coastal path!

A lot of hard work completed at different dates by Glin Tidy Towns members. At last the weeds are removed from the Coastal path kerbside. A lot of the drainage holes were blocked hence build up of rain water and this encouraged the weed buildup. Thanks to all who helped with this project (not everyone in photo). Hard work but satisfying!

Intermediate Quarter Final

Glin 0-8

Galbally 0-17

Our run in this year’s championship came to an end in Feenagh last Saturday afternoon.  We went toe to toe with Galbally for most of the first half with some fine teamwork and incisive passing which created many scores. We were fortunate also that Seán Lyons was in fine form, saving two goal bound shots in the opening 20 minutes. Paddy Fitzgerald was marshalling the backs well from his sweeper role, with midfield and forwards functioning well together, which culminated in points for Pádraig Scanlon, Paul and Darren Sheahan and James Wallace. Half time: Glin 0-7 Galbally 0-11. Unfortunately, we never got going in the second half. As the gap widened, our play and discipline became more ragged, with our sole score being a point by Scanlon. Galbally were the better team and deserve their place in the semi final.

Despite this defeat, our lads can take a lot of heart from this season. We won four championship games against Bruff, Athea, Mungret and Claughan, and reached the quarter finals for the first time since coming up intermediate in 2015. There is a crop of young minor and U21s who have experience of winning titles with Shannon Gaels, who made their mark on this year’s championship. There were some superb passages of play and outstanding score taking in all of this year’s matches. With the potential return of a few exiles next year, 2019 is a season that the Estuary men will look forward to with great interest. The club would like to thank all the players and the management team of Colm Hassett, Pádraig Hogan, Gaven O’Connor and James O’Donovan for their efforts this year.

Team: Seán Lyons, Jack Sheehan, Brian O’Donovan, Maurice Moore, Jamie Fitzgerald, Tadhg Culhane, John Wallace, Pádraig Costello, Paul Sheehan (0-2), Shane Culhane, Pádraig Scanlon (0-3), Gary Culhane, Darren Sheahan (0-2) , James Wallace (0-1), Paddy Fitzgerald. Subs used: Ger Lyons, Brendan Flanagan, Edmond Horan, Cian Culhane, Ronan Culhane, Pádraig Horan.

Online Club Shop

Don’t forget that Glin GAA club gear is available at: https://www.oneills.com/shop-by-team/gaa/ireland/glin-gaa-club.html. The latest addition to our range is a very stylish grey and black half zip top which comes in all sizes and would make the perfect gift.

Fixture

The County Minor semi final between Shannon Gaels and Knockainey takes place this Friday evening, October 5th at 6.30pm in Mick Neville Park, Rathkeale. All support welcome.

Congrats

Congratulations to Michael Stack and Shauna Kelly on the birth of their son Luke recently.

A Christian prayer in union with creation:
Father, we praise you with all your creatures. They came forth from your all-powerful hand;
they are yours, filled with your presence and your tender love. Praise be to you!
Son of God, Jesus, through you all things were made.
You were formed in the womb of Mary our Mother, you became part of this earth,
and you gazed upon this world with human eyes. Today you are alive in every creature
in your risen glory. Praise be to you! Holy Spirit, by your light
you guide this world towards the Father’s love and accompany creation as it groans in travail.
You also dwell in our hearts and you inspire us to do what is good. Praise be to you!
Triune Lord, wondrous community of infinite love, teach us to contemplate you
in the beauty of the universe, for all things speak of you. Awaken our praise and thankfulness
for every being that you have made.
Give us the grace to feel profoundly joined to everything that is.
God of love, show us our place in this world as channels of your love
for all the creatures of this earth, for not one of them is forgotten in your sight.
Enlighten those who possess power and money
that they may avoid the sin of indifference,
that they may love the common good, advance the weak,
and care for this world in which we live.
The poor and the earth are crying out.
O Lord, seize us with your power and light, help us to protect all life,
to prepare for a better future, for the coming of your Kingdom
of justice, peace, love and beauty.
Praise be to you! Amen

Intermediate QF Playoff

Glin 1-12

Athea 1-10

After suffering defeat to Mungret in the 1st playoff in Rathkeale last Tuesday night, it was winner-take-all, in Abbeyfeale last Sunday afternoon.

We started very slowly, with Athea causing most of the damage in the first 30 minutes, with the only bright sparks being a brace from Paul Sheahan and a fine left footed effort from Brendan Flanagan which capped off a incisive Glin move. At half time, the outlook was bleak, with our boys trailing 1-6 to 0-4. The second half was a great improvement with opening points from Pádraig Scanlon and Paul Sheahan, cutting the margin to a single goal. Athea pushed ahead with two points of their own, before Paul Sheahan cut through the defence and finished with aplomb to the back of the net. His brother Darren then got in on the action with two raised white flags, the second coming from nice intricate build up play from the Wallace brothers. Paul and Gary Culhane fired over two further points around the 50th minute but we couldn’t shake off Athea who had clawed their way back level 1-10 apiece as we entered into injury time.

The referee awarded us a free 40 yards out on the left hand side and Scanlon struck it sweetly over the bar to put us a point ahead. Our defence held tough in the closing minute and on the break, Jack Sheehan hit a wonderful cross field ball into Ger Lyons who laid it off to Darren Sheahan for the insurance score. Full time: Glin 1-12 Athea 1-10. This was a wonderful team performance from Glin, especially when the chips were down, with our young lads really stepping up and the experienced players coming off the bench to see out the game. It has been a rollercoaster week for the lads with 3 matches in 7 days but finally after four years in the intermediate grade, we’re into a quarter final against Galbally, this Saturday at 3pm in Feenagh.

Team: Seán Lyons, Jamie Fitzgerald, Brian O’Donovan, Maurice Moore, John Wallace, Pádraig Costello, Jack Sheehan, Ronan Culhane, Paul Sheehan (1-4), Shane Culhane, Darren Sheahan (0-3), Brendan Flanagan (0-1), Pádraig Scanlon (0-3), Gary Culhane (0-1), James Wallace, Subs used: Ger Lyons, Paddy Fitzgerald, Tadhg Culhane, Edmond Horan.

Online Club Shop

Don’t forget that Glin GAA club gear is available at: https://www.oneills.com/shop-by-team/gaa/ireland/glin-gaa-club.html. The latest addition to our range is a very stylish grey and black half zip top which comes in all sizes and would make the perfect gift.

Lotto

Lotto was held in Dunne’s last Sunday evening. Numbers drawn were 12, 18, 25 and 28. There was no winner on the night and the five €30 Lucky Dips drawn were Martin Henderson, Gerard Ryan, Fergus Healy, Kenneth Lyons and Tom Fogarty. Next week’s jackpot will be €3,800 and the draw takes place in Barrett’s Bar on Sunday evening at 8.30pm.  Don’t forget, you can play online at https://game.smartlotto.ie/game/play/532.
