Launch of new viewing point at Glin Pier.

Fáilte Ireland has unveiled 11 new viewing points along the Shannon Estuary Way – the first of a series of Wild Atlantic Way looped drives created to encourage visitors to explore other parts of the region and stay longer.

Developed with an investment of €225,000, the Shannon Estuary Way takes visitors on a drive through an area of remarkable unspoilt beauty, across the Shannon Estuary on Shannon Ferries, encouraging them to explore the many delightful towns, villages and world famous shore fishing sites within the area.

Minister of State Patrick O’Donovan with Chairperson of Glin Development, John Anthony Culhane, Catriona Scully of West Limerick Resources and Councillor John Sheahan Glin, and members of Glin Development.

The new viewing points on the looped drive across Limerick and Clare (Ringmoylan Pier,

Ballysteen Pier, Boland’s Meadow, Kilteery Pier, Glin Pier, Knock Pier, Labasheeda Quay, Killadysert Pier, Covraghan Pier, Clarecastle Pier and Tullyglass Point) will compel visitors to stop, enjoy the view and engage with the stories of each local area.

Launching the viewing points were Cllr Michael Collins, Caitriona Scully (West Limerick Resources), Minister of State Patrick O’Donovan and Siobhan King of Failte Ireland |PICTURE: Diarmuid Green

Margaret Mulcahy – legend

Margaret is finishing up on her CE Scheme this coming Friday the 8th March. Glin Development and Tidy Towns would like to thank Margaret for her dedication and hard work during her year on the scheme. She was dedicated, observant and she takes a great pride in her duty in keeping the whole town of Glin litter free. It is hoped she will get back on another scheme very soon. Thank you Margaret from everyone in Glin and thanks to West Limerick Resources who facilitate the scheme.  As spring and summer are approaching we would ask everyone to be mindful of litter and pick up same when possible. Also if you own a dog, please be responsible and do the right thing if your dog fouls the streets. This was a bugbear of Margaret’s, and no doubt she will still be on the lookout for offenders! 

Best of luck Margaret!

Reflection: Springs of Living Water

GB Rovers – HELP WANTED:  The numbers of children now involved is on the increase and we hope to run a few extra teams this year. If you would like to get involved please contact a coach or any member of Glin Rovers. 

Lord, your love is everlasting,

Never running dry, never exhausted,

More so than any earthly spring.

You love us all utterly,

To the limits of our understanding,

And beyond, without ever faltering.

There is no-one in this world,

Nowhere on earth,

Who is not loved by you.

Lord, may I never spurn

The love you lavish upon me.

May I never give up

On receiving from the living waters

You provide for us.

For as the waters of the earth

Flow and nourish and give growth,

So the living water

Flowing from your heart of love

Gives us life, sustains us,

Until you can find You,

The source of all good,

In the waters that well up to eternal life.

Lord, give us this water always.

Amen

Willie Wall – an Inspiration

Willie Wall going about his daily cleanup in Glin.
Glin Development and Tidy Towns would like to thank Willie Wall for his tireless contribution to keeping the square and the streets of Glin spotless. Willie is out in all weathers with his brush and shovel, brushing and cleaning and picking up other peoples litter. Willie has specifically asked that dog owners do the needful after their canine friends. It really is unacceptable that dogs are allowed to foul the streets of Glin without a thought for those who have to clean it up, or indeed for those who unfortunately might step on it! Doggie bags are available free from Peg at the Library.
Thank you Willie Wall, you are one in a million.

Reflection: Like a Watered Garden

There is such satisfaction

In seeing a garden thrive and flourish,

Well watered and nourished

Each flower a wondrous design,

And all together a symphony of colours

And a harmony of fragrances,

A blending of beauty, a joyous splendour.

Yet how more, Lord, do we give you joy

When we thrive and flourish

In harmony with you!

For like a well-watered garden,

Whose waters never fail,

So we are nourished by your love,

A love that never fails.

Lord, pour gifts of your love upon me

As you pour down rain on the earth!

Shine your goodness and warmth into my heart,

As the sun shines down to give life!

Reflection:  Whose Job is it?

This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. 

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it.

Everybody was sure Somebody would do it.  Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.  Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job.  Everybody thought Anybody could do it but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.  It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

Geoff Hunt 🦆Birdwatching🦅 on the Shannon

Thanks to Birdwatch Ireland Limerick Branch.

Huge thanks to Geoff Hunt for leading over 20 people at our outing today. Starting at Tarbert near the ferry we spotted a Mediterranean Gull in a flock of Black-headed Gulls. Then on to the hide outside Tarbert where there was plenty of Shelduck, Widgon, Teal, Curlew, Redshank and 4 Snipe flying along the shoreline to mention but a few. We stopped in Glin next where some of the luckier people saw a Dipper and Kingfisher on the river but they were gone in a flash!! On our way to Robertstown Creek we stopped off at Loghill where a large flock of Lapwing, Dunlin a few Curlew were on the mudflats. After a short time we moved on to Robertstown Creek itself and sitting on it’s plucking post was a Kestral having lunch…a mouse!! In the creek the was a large flock of Golden Plover, some Lapwing, Curlew, Godwit and 4 Little Egrets who flew into a tree, we also got a glimpse of another Little Egret at the opposite side. Great day out and the weather was kind to us. 🙂

Christmas Greeting from Fr. Crawford

It is my privilege to send a Christmas Greeting and a New Year Blessing to all the Homes and people of the Parish, as we celebrate the birth of Christ and look forward with hope and confidence to the year ahead. I congratulate the families who celebrated Baptisms, and the young couples who got married. I offer my sympathy to those families who suffered bereavement in the past year. I have enjoyed sharing in your joyful family events , Celebrating Mass for your various intentions, and at your service in all your spiritual needs. I sincerely thank you for your generous support to me personally and to the Church in 2018 . To all who are involved in the various ministries of Word & Sacrament, to all involved in the administration of the Parish and all who help create a friendly and caring community,I say a big thank you . I congratulate our two Schools, their Teachers and all Staff members, The Boards of Management , the Parents and Children. There were some great school events during the past year and lovely moments to celebrate and remember. I would like to congratulate, bless, and encourage the work of all the Organizations in the Parish. You have organized many enjoyable events and welcomed lots of visitors to Glin . Ni neart go cur le cheile (our strength lies in unity)
The Diocesan website( http://www.limerickdiocese.org) also the Glin .info page will help you to keep up with developments and news.
I offer you the “Gospel Tree” for your reflection.
The Christmas Tree is a fitting image to prepare for the year ahead . You are the branches and the lights to help us face the many challenges . The Priests and people of our new Pastoral Unit will be working together to map out an uncertain future .Team Ministry and active involvement of Parishioners are key to the success of this new Pastoral Plan. The box of envelopes, delivered to your home is an invitation to continue your support for the work and upkeep of your local Church. You have been very generous and I thank you for your continued financial support. The envelopes allow me to record your contributions , be fully accountable for your donations and to claim back tax where possible.

I wish you every Blessing in the coming year.
