A very old poem composed by John Mulvihill of Scart, Glin

THE GLIN FAIR

A fair is held in sweet Glin town

At the falling of each year

On the first of dark December,

When Christmas times are near,

Gay crowds of sporting people

To the town do gather in

To buy and sell, and drink as well

At the winter’s fair of Glin.

‘Tis there you’ll see the sporting boys,

The girls grand and gay

They gather in to sweet Glin Town

To have a sporting day.

Upstairs at Mary Regan’s tent

They will drink strong wine and gin,

And talk of future happiness

At the winter’s fair of Glin.

‘Tis there you’ll see the spendid cows,

Fine calves and breeding mares.

From the golden vein of Drumrisk

That land so rich and rare.

From Scart and Sandes’ mountain

Prize cattle do come in

And they all will wear their medals

At the winter’s fair of Glin.

‘Tis there you would see the sporting boys

Going out for exercise

With loaded butts and plants of ash

They break each other’s eyes

Cut heads and broken noses

The blood will freely swim

From Connell’s forge down to the quay

At the winter’s fair of Glin.

Those Drumrisk boys are men of science,

They have a record made;

I’m told by good authorities

They knocked out all the Fees

The Curlew with his gallant band

He then had to give in

And seek for police protection

At the winter’s fair of Glin.

They have a noble training school

In Drumrisk hill I’m sure,

For day and night in Drumrisk hill

The gloves they freely use,

They break wire lines knock down ash trees,

They damage bone and skin.

And no wonder they are boxers then

At the winter’s fair of Glin.

So now good bye to you old fair,

You’ve gone and passed away;

And as Christmas time is drawing near

I have one word to say

I wish a happy Christmas to all of you good men

And maidens fair beyond compare,

In that lovely town of Glin.

Composed about 15 years ago by-

John Mulvihill

Glin,

He remarked that we now can boast three castles in Glin, with the new castle structure in the playground echoing our existing iconic castles!
Fr. Tom Crawford blessed the playground and spoke some lovely words to the children about appreciating the facilities and looking after our earth.  West Limerick resources who part funded the project were represented by Elaine Dillon and Amee Grigg. Our local Councillor, John Sheahan, who spearheaded the project, also said some words as did the Chairman of Glin Development, John Anthony Culhane.  Glin Development would like to thank everyone who had a part in the project and those who helped to make the Opening the wonderful event that it was.

The Castle can be entered from great climbing net inside the structure or up the stairs. Once on elevated level different activities support children’s physical development. The huge thrilling tube slide develop children’s spatial awareness, their balance is stimulated when sliding down the banister bars and the fireman’s pole develop children’s bone density. On the ground level of the Castle a treasure box and the jail window stimulate children’s fine motor skills and teach them about cause and effect.

WHEELCHAIR CAROUSEL

Carousel with room for wheelchair:
WOW – this is play for everyone, no matter their abilities. The huge truly inclusive, universal design carousel attracts big groups of children and adults in for a spin. Due to its versatility, it appeals to children and adults again and again. The ground-level design makes the carousel accessible to everyone. The bench provides a comfortably seated spin. The handholds function from both sides. From the inside they offer good support, whilst from the outside they to get the carousel moving. Spinning on this carousel trains the vestibular system, the sense of balance and the spatial awareness. The benefits trained through play also encompass social skills, such as cooperation and empathy by assisting friends of all abilities to spin and helping others wanting to join or exit. It is play with a purpose for all.

Dave has offered to train any persons wishing to take up the position in the future.  The club would like to sincerely thank Dave for his long serving commitment to Glin Community Games which stems back to the 90’s.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank all former members of the club for the time they gave year in and year out which lead to great success and many fond memories for the parish.

Mission Prayer:

Heavenly Father, when your only begotten Son Jesus Christ rose from the dead, He commissioned His followers to ‘go and make disciples of all nations’ and you remind us that through our Baptism we are made sharers in the mission of the Church. Empower us by the gifts of the Holy Spirit to be courageous and zealous in bearing witness to the Gospel, so that the mission entrusted to the Church, which is still very far from completion, may find new and efficacious expressions that bring life and light to the world. Help us make it possible for all peoples to experience the saving love and mercy of Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen

Reflection:

Mission Sunday is a day for us to reflect on the contribution we, as Irish people, have made to this mission in the past and how we live it today. Mission was understood as going abroad, to countries where the Church was not yet strong or to places where people suffered from poverty or conflict. This is indeed still necessary and valid today and we pray people will continue to give their lives to mission in this way.

Mission was also seen as the task primarily of priests and religious, with some few lay missionaries, and their work was very much supported by the generosity of the Irish people. Pope Francis today is encouraging all the baptised to more actively assume their responsibility as ‘missionary disciples’. Many Catholics in Ireland, especially among our youth, see little relevance of the faith in their lives. Hence, a challenge for all of us as Catholics is to take the time to seriously reflect on our faith experience, seek to become more knowledgeable about the Scriptures and some of the teachings of the Church, ask ourselves questions about it and seek to articulate it meaningfully to ourselves and others, and then base our action on our experience of the faith. Mission is essentially faith in action, and to this we as baptised are all called to be committed.

There are many ways in which people live mission today, both in Ireland and overseas. These include being involved in action to prevent trafficking, various kinds of social and community work with the poor and marginalised, reaching out to refugees and migrants and action to care for the earth. Some of those people who are engaged in these activities may not profess a formal Christian faith, but it is evident that their activities are inspired by Gospel values and they are promoting the reign of God.

Newsletter: Please note that all notices for the newsletter are to be placed in the locked black box in Paddy Hogan’s shop or email:glencorbry.ias@eircom.net by 12.00 noon on Thursday with name and contact details.

Tree🌳Day🍁2019

Tetra Pak Tree Day 2019 takes place on Thursday, 3rd October this year.

The theme for this year’s campaign is Be Planet Positive! and it’s all about focussing on the things we can do in our everyday lives to help nature and our environment.

The top tip this year is to plant more trees! Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen and help reduce the risk of climate change. They also provide shelter and food for birds, animals and insects.

The Knights Walk has a variety of native and non-native trees and some are identified showing their name in irish, english and ogham.

Message from Fr. Crawford:

During the summer I celebrated my Golden Jubilee as a priest in the Diocese of Limerick.  I spent two days with my class mates in Maynooth in early June.  There we exchanged stories of our experience over the seven years of formation in college and fifty years as priests in various Dioceses of the country.  We were joined by a good number who started with us in September 1962 but left at different times to pursue a different vocation and were not ordained.  We were delighted to hear their interesting stories and meet some of their wives.

Then a week later I jointed my family for a large gathering of extended family – all 56 of us – and we had a great party.  A week later there was a Parish celebration organised by the Glin Pastoral Council.  This was a wonderful celebration for me and many of my family who were invited and attended.  We were amazed at the large congregation and level of detail in the liturgy of the Mass and also the wonderful food and entertainment we shared at Ceol Corbraí until last evening.  On behalf of the Crawford Clan I thank you.  We do appreciate your kindness.

I wish to thank you all for your good wishes, your cards of congratulations, your generous gifts and Prayers.  It was a wonderful Parish event and a Day to Remember and cherish for life.  A Big Thank You to all.

Then in July when I quietly reflected on my age I wrote to Bishop Brendan offering my resignation as Parish Priest of Glin Parish.  All Parish Priests (and Bishops too) are requested to offer their resignation at the age of 75 (Canon Law no. 538).  Then I waited for his reply.  In the meantime I discussed with him my options and plans for the future.  I conveyed my willingness to continue to minister and help out where needed.  I was not ready however to leave the Parish and people of Glin where I have enjoyed your hospitality, friendship and support since I was appointed in August 2005.

In due course Bishop Brendan replied accepting my formal offer to resign but he asked me to continue for the time being and in view of our conversations he proposed that I continue as Co-PP in the Pastoral Unit for the year ahead.

So the position is clarified.  I will continue to work with your and for you in the year ahead until next summer when he will review the team in this Pastoral Unit of Parishes, i.e. Glin, Loughill/Ballyhahill, Shanagolden/Foynes/Roberstown and Coolcappa/Kilcolman.  Míle Buíochas. T. Crawford.

Last⚽️Man💰Standing – week 2

Selections for the Glin Rovers Last Man Standing, Week 2, are in. It looks like people believe lightning won’t strike twice as 114 punters (from the 191 remaining) have gone for Man City to beat Watford. After last week’s slip up, Man City will surely come out with all guns blazing this week, right?

Arsenal (33) and Everton (34) have a few riding on them as well.

Check out the selections at https://drive.google.com/open?id=1sHr7IQ0sHGJOPz3sK9GvG8i76kP067n4

Peg’s Poem – An Cailín Bán 👩

The Cailin Bán – September 2019
In memory of Ellen Hanley who was murdered in 1819

It started with a rumour
That John Anthony had a dream
To bring the Cailin Bán to life
Down by the Shannon stream.
And to make it even grander
And ensure it was the best
He had the inspiration
To include Dominic West.

And so the rumour blossomed
And soon grew big and strong
When Vicar Joe and Eleanor
Brought a script along.
The next task was not so easy
To find people for each role
But they trusted in the talent found
From Loughill to Listowel.

And so the summer bore some fruit
As each one learned their part
And delivered lines with passion
Getting serious from the start.
Meanwhile some eager ladies
Were making strides backstage
Sourcing props and costumes
Not expecting any wage.

So when September came around
And the opening night in sight
Many people had bought tickets
So as not to miss this night.
And they were not disappointed
As this outstanding crew
Through singing, dancing, acting
Made John A’s dream came true.

Credit due to all the locals
And Glin Development committee
For making this a memorable event
Which will go down in history.
We look forward to the time when
Tourist will flock to see
The Knight of Glin Interpretative Centre
At the back of the Library.
