FUNdraiser….

No April showers planned for this fun-filled FUNdraiser…

-St. Fergus NS Glin Parents Council is delighted to announce that it will be organising a sponsored walk and coffee morning on April 9th to raise funds to support school activities.-

The event takes place on Saturday April 9th with a sponsored walk starting at the Knights Walk, Glin at 11am. Everyone, both young and old, is encouraged to walk on the day and ask their friends and family to sponsor them. For anyone that can’t do the walk you can still lend your support by calling in to Ceol Corbrai where the Parents Council will be running a coffee morning, full of tasty treats. Kick-off there is at 11am also.

Joint Secretaries, Lisa Henderson and Siobhan Kelleher, St. Fergus NS Parents Council, Glin, are excited to be able to call on the community to support the event.

“We are delighted to be in a position to run the sponsored walk and coffee morning. So many of the parents have gotten involved and I’m sure the hall will look like the Great Glin Bake Off! We are encouraging everyone in the village and surrounding parishes to call in for a cuppa and some cake. It’s a social event but it will help us to raise funds to support the school. The Parents Council normally supports art activities and transport costs for various trips, so now that the children have opportunities available to them again we are only too happy to give support where we can.”

There’s an amazing raffle running too with a family hotel break in Galway and a 4 ball with lunch or dinner on offer for the lucky winners. So, if you are in Glin on Saturday, April 9th, walk the Knights walk and meet your friends for a coffee and treat. What a lovely way to spend an April morning. Please support this fun-filled FUNdraiser.

If you can’t make it on the 9th but still want to contribute you can donate securely online through the Go Fund Me

Collection for Ukraine: Bishops have asked that a Special Collection for Ukraine be taken up in parishes on the weekend of 26 and 27 March.  

Responding to the great concern expressed by many people in the parishes and Dioceses of Ireland, the Bishops decided to offer people another opportunity to support financially the families and children of the Ukraine who have had to flee their homeland in advance of the Russian invasion. 

Bishops said, “Already millions of people have been forced to flee their homes as refugees.  It is a source of inspiration that people all over Ireland are responding with customary generosity to support humanitarian efforts in this crisis.  Many parish communities have already established links with charitable projects to support refugees and those remaining in Ukraine. Recognising these urgent needs, the bishops are asking that a special collection be taken up at all Masses on the weekend of Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 March.

The proceeds of this Special Collection will be directed to Caritas Internationalis which is the helping hand of the Church on the ground in the Ukraine and surrounding areas. Caritas is the international equivalent of Trócaire, our own Irish Church development agency.

All donations can be put in the box at the back of the Church, the proceeds of which will be returned as quickly as possible to the diocesan office.

It’s a home game Sat 18th March for manager Gavin O’Connors U13 crew as we take on Abbeyfeale in Glin Rovers pitch. Kick off is at 11.30, with players to arrive at 11am for warm ups. If your not busy tomorrow, make sure to swing by, the kids would love to see support at the side line and encouragement is always welcomed. ⚽⚫🟡⚫🟡⚫🟡⚽

Another great win today for GB! Our U11s made the short spin to Athea and came away with a win under their belts. This U11 team are really starting to find their feet and work so well together. They’re a strong team and development wise; they have progressed so much in a short space of time. It’s great to see such progression from each of the players. They are a great credit to the club – keep up the excellent work 💪⚽

The U12 team headed off nice and early Friday to take on AK United for a 10am Division 2 league match. They had an excellent win, with top notch performances from all the GB players today. Every player battled hard against a very good and strong AK United side. At the whistle the final score was: AK United 1 -GB Rovers 2. Goals from: Harry Wallace ⚽ Dan Healy ⚽ Our U12 crew will take on Broadford on Saturday 26th in the Semi Final of the Cup 😬💪

Dolores McNamara RIP

Dolores is being laid to rest today.

Glin Development and Tidy Towns would like to offer their sincere sympathy to Dolores’ sister and brothers, Dolores’ extended family and many friends, and to her wonderful staff at McNamaras Shop. Dolores was a generous and thoughtful person always, she loved Glin and she had a great pride of place. Dolores donated generously always, over the years, to the work and projects run by Glin Development and Tidy Towns. She took a keen interest in all the developments in the town and always had the positive word. She will be sadly missed. Rest in Peace Dolores.

Our thanks to Rachel Mulvihill, Glin Community News Facebook Page: After many many months of ‘not being sure’, I have finally decided to close down the Glin Community News Facebook page. I have been running the page now independently for over 10 years and I cannot dedicate the time needed to run it anymore. Thank you to everyone that helped the page gain 3000+ followers, all regularly updated with the goings on, in and around Glin. The pages’ news was always warmly received and I can honestly say (bar 2/3 negative comments over the 10 years) that all comments on the page were positive and friendly. Thank you to everyone that helped make the page what it was.

I will touch base over the coming months with updates from the Go Fund Me page and the progress being made down at the Town Park. It was lovely to finish the closing of the page on a positive with so many contributions from wonderful local people. The fund raised just a little over €10k and I will work closely with Glin Development on the park project. Many thanks to all, Rachel Mulvihill

Go Fund Me Page set up to help the O’Shaughnessy Family.

https://gofund.me/bd9653e4

On February 20th 2022 at approximately 3.30pm Margaret (Naughton) and Tony O’ Shaughnessy Ballyhahill, Co.Limerick, discovered a fire in the attic of their family home.

Within minutes the attic and roof were engulfed in flames and their home was completely destroyed. The family left with only the clothes on their back and watched their home and all their personal belongings go up in flames.

Tony was in the cast of The Colleen Bawn Play in Glin Castle in 2019. (He played the magistrate in the courtroom scene).

The link to the Gofundme page which has been set up to help the OShaughnessy family is attached. All donations are greatly appreciated and will be used to rebuild their home.

February 11th is World Day of the Sick, an observation started by Pope John Paul II as a way for believers to offer prayers for those suffering from illnesses. The day coincides with the commemoration of Our Lady of Lourdes. The theme this year is ‘Come to me all who labour and are oppressed and I will give you rest. (Mt 11;28)

People around the world take the time to pray for the sick and for those who work very hard to alleviate the sufferings of the sick on this day. Faith organisations mark this day especially to provide the sick with medicines, food, and spiritual guidance. Pope John Paul II initiated the day in 1992 to encourage people to pray for those who suffer from illness and for their caregivers.

Go Fund Me… put the ‘Light’ back into Glin Town Park.

https://gofund.me/29f4741b

This page has been set up by Glin Community News as a result of the outcry from local parishioners and people further afield, that were shocked and horrified by the recent criminal damage that happened in the Glin Town Park. This GoFundMe page will run for one month and all monies raised, no matter how small, will go directly to Glin Development to support them towards the cost of CCTV cameras, replacement of bollard lighting and electrical repairs to the Corbry Tree. This fundraiser is to show support and solidarity with Glin Development.
On the night of the 1st January 2022, barely 24 hours from when we rang in the New Year, vandals struck and caused thousands of euros worth of damage to a large portion of the lighting structures that surround the park. These bollards/lamps were callously thrown into the river Shannon along with signage and bulbs. The Corby Christmas Tree, a recent project funded by Glin Development in 2020, was unfortunately also targeted. The door entry was kicked in and the wiring boxes ripped out. The Corbry Tree is a wonderful uplifting symbol of light and hope in our town park, and is sadly missed by all.Presently the town park is in darkness!
There is a large amount of damage, but, with your help we can ensure that the park returns to its former glory. It is envisioned that CCTV cameras will be installed, to prevent this type of criminal damage in the future. With your contribution, the lighting bollards will be replaced and the Corbry Tree will be repaired. We can, once again, ensure that our park is a safe place for people to walk of an evening, will be a beacon of light to passing ships in the night and to passing cars on the N 69.
TOGETHER WE CAN CONTRIBUTE TO PUT THE ‘LIGHT’ BACK INTO GLIN TOWN PARK!

Collection boxes are located in shops and pubs in Glin.

“To all the wonderful people that have donated so generously to the GoFundMe page to put the ‘Light’ back into Glin Town Park THANK YOU SO MUCH. In less than 20 hours we have managed to hit the target of €1,500 and some more!!! With everyone being so big hearted when times are tough for many, it really means so much to see such generosity. I have raised the bar a little higher to a goal of €5,500 and I just feel we will break this goal too! Please continue to share and thank you so so much.” Glin Community News.

Criminal Damage at Glin Town Park 2/1/22

It’s with a heavy heart, that at this start of the New Year, Glin Development have to report criminal damage that took place last night in Glin Town Park. Lighting bollards were ripped out, wiring and cabling pulled out and thrown into the river Shannon. The Corbry Christmas Tree that stands proud in the centre of the park has had all its cabling pulled out and damaged. Unfortunately the tree will not light for the rest of the Christmas period. What kind of people are out there in our midst, that would be so evil, cowardly and destructive, to go to Glin Town Park in the cover of darkness and carryout this kind of criminal damage. It is an insult to the people of Glin and further a field who have given donations and very generous contributions, that have allowed all this work to be undertaken. We have no words to express our disgust and disappointment! If anyone has information or know who were the perpetrators of this criminality, please contact Garda Billy McElligott at 068 34100 or Newcastlewest Garda station at 069 20650. There is indeed an element of evil in our midst!

Fourth Sunday of Advent Reflection.

Jesus is of the line of David. He is the Lord’s son and his sovereignty is established for all eternity. He is the King of kings. He is the all-powerful ever- living God. We are secure in his security. On us is bestowed a royal dignity because we share his humanity, the humanity he deigned to take onto himself as true God and true man when he was conceived in Mary’s womb when she said: I am the handmaid of the Lord, let what you have said be done to me. We are restored to the dignity intended by God at the beginning. Jesus has wrought our salvation by becoming one of us.

History and Meaning of the Advent Wreath

The lights of the candles on the Advent Wreath break through the darkness, reminding us of the Light of Christ that we anticipate during this holy season of Advent. Like many of our Church traditions, the use of the Advent Wreath with its evergreens and its lighted candles finds its origins in pagan tradition and ritual. “Pre-Germanic peoples used wreaths with lit candles during the dark and cold of winter as signs of hope in the future warmth and lengthening sunlit days of spring. Similarly, Scandinavians lit candles which were placed around a wheel, and prayers were offered to the god of light to turn the wheel of the earth back toward the sun to lengthen the days and restore warmth.” In the middle ages, Germanic peoples began incorporating a lighted wreath into the Christian season of Advent. It didn’t gain widespread popularity until the 1800s.

The Advent Wreath is symbolic. The evergreens used for the wreath itself are reminders of life. Shaping them into a circle reinforces that meaning. The circle is also a sign of everlasting life as well as the eternity of God.

The four candles used, three purple and one rose, mark the Sundays of Advent before Christmas. The purple candles are reminders that this should be a time of prayer and sacrifice to prepare us for the second coming of Christ. On the third Sunday, the rose candle is lit to announce Gaudete Sunday, (Gaudete means rejoice) a Sunday of rejoicing for Christ’s coming is near. With the lighting of that third candle, brightness is growing and the darkness is being overcome.

A fifth and larger white candle in the centre represents Christ. It is lit on Christmas Eve as a declaration that Christ has come into the world and the darkness is vanquished utterly.

The Advent Wreath serves as a powerful visual reminder of the holiness of the season. The light of the candles invites us to quiet ourselves during this busy time and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. It provides an invitation to wait and pray in hopeful anticipation for the coming of Christ. We are called to welcome the light of Christ into our lives.

Covid restrictions have lifted, however, we would ask everyone to continue with mask wearing and also sanitising hands on entering the church. Let’s stay safe together.

St. Fergus National School: Enrolment Forms for the school year 2022/2023 are now available from the school office.  Please telephone 068-34344.  Places available also in our ASD Class.

Thank you: The church grounds received a great power hosing Saturday morning last! Thank you to the Mulvihill brothers, John, Eddie and Thomas and nephew Pakie.  What a difference it made.  Their sister, Bride O’Connor, of Brides Boutique Church Street, had her months mind mass at 7 pm at Glin church on Saturday. 

Glin Development: were disappointed recently to have to postpone the unveiling of the Ring Fort Native Tree Planting event at the Knights Walk.  It was to have been a day of educational fun for the children of Glin and Ballyguiltenane National Schools.  Some native Irish Oaks were to be planted at the site of what remains of an old Ring Fort located at the loop section of the walk.  Catherine Fitzgerald of Glin Castle was to plant the first tree and tell the school children about the organisation, Bugs Bees and Native Trees. This organisation is dedicated to the importance of the protection of our environment, biodiversity and climate change through tree planting and other community initiatives. An Interpretative Board was to be placed at the entrance to the site, giving historical information about Ring Forts and the importance of preserving our history.   Glin Development had also asked local man, Pat McSweeney, to create a Fairy House out of the stump of an old tree adjacent to the site.  Pat has been working over the past few months, to create what is now a superb specimen of a Fairy House.  It has magical qualities and you could indeed believe that the fairies have already taken up residence.  

We were all disappointed the project did not go ahead as planned, but we look forward to rescheduling the event with the children of Glin and Ballyguiltenane National Schools in the coming months.  We would encourage parents to take their children up to see the Fairy House, at the top of Lissy Highe (beginning of the loop) at the Knights Walk.  We would also like to sincerely thank Pat McSweeny for creating a wonderful imaginative fairy house, and thank him for his time and excellent craftsmanship.

Glin Tidy Towns: Congratulations to all those involved in the Tidy Towns Committee, especially the volunteers who turned up for the weekly clean-ups.  Up 7 points this year. A special mention to Marie Fitzgerald who is the driving force behind Glin Tidy Towns.  Full report can be read on the tidy towns website www.tidytowns.ie

After an impressive week with Paul Osams U16 team, the following Monday he flew to Coventry with the U17 Cork FC team to take part in a tournament against Coventry City, AFC Bournemouth and Oxford United. Cillian’s winning penalty sealed the deal and Cork City claimed the ‘Sky Blue Cup’ title in Coventry.

Glin Tennis Club Renovations

❌❌❌EXCITING NEWS❌❌❌

The day has arrived 😁…Thanks to the Sport Capital Programme, Glin Tennis Club were approved funding to start the renovation process of Glin tennis court! The renovation started last month and fantastic work has been completed. A huge thanks to Denis Lucey of Courtcare and his hardworking team, Brian and Eoin. They have transformed the tennis court as can be seen from the range of photos, from the very beginning to the finished product. Who could believe the end result !!! The fencing will be replaced when the next tranche of funding comes on line. It looks spectacular and we love the red and green colours. There will be an Open Day organised so keep an eye on the Glin Tennis FB PAGE.

Bride O’Connor: It was a very sad day in Glin when we heard of the passing of Bride O’Connor (née Mulvihill) Bride’s Boutique & Hair Studio. Bride was a pillar of our community and a woman known by so many up and down the country.  Bride could be found in her hair studio and boutique with a hair brush in one hand and an outfit in the other.  Her love of hair and fashion was like no other – she really was a style icon!   Always glamorous and always there to greet you with a warm welcoming smile as you walked through the door.  The parishioners of Glin will miss you and your warm loving character.  Church Street will not be the same without you.  Condolences to her husband Eddie, children Seamus, Maura and Stephanie, grandchildren and extended family and friends.
