Presentation of Christmas Hamper to Willie Wall ๐ŸŽ

THANK YOU WILLIE WALLโ€ฆ.
Willie loves his home town of Glin. His pride of place is evident from the many hours Willie spends brushing and tending to the streets and especially the square in Glin. You will see Willie from early in the morning to late in the evenings most days busily going about his selfless volunteer work. He is outstanding. Willie has had some health issues of late and he has to take care of himself and not overdo it. We wish Willie a safe and healthy Christmas and thank you from everybody in Glin who really appreciated all you do.

The Corbry Tree

The weather held up at 7 o clock this evening when The Corbry Tree was lit up for the first time in Glin Town Park. The tree was christened by the children from St Fergus National School. A socially distanced gathering was held. Mulled wine was provided by the Conway family and everyone had a little tipple. Fr. Crawford blessed the tree and the countdown began by the assembled children! The tree lit up and you could hear the cheers in Clare! Well done to everyone and especially to the talented and skilled group who put the plan from inception to the wonderful finished Corbry Tree. It is a shining beacon in these strange times we are all experiencing. Shine on and shine bright Corbry Tree ๐ŸŽ„โญ๏ธ ๐ŸŽ„

Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far to the Glin Community Go Fund me. Every contribution no matter how small is greatly appreciated. We know we are competing with lots of great deserving causes out there. The walks and trails in Glin provide much needed nourishment for the mind and body, especially with the restrictions of lockdown during Covid times. The playground, town park and pier are a blissful haven for children and families alike. So many enjoyed the wonderful amenities during the summer months. We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful place. All our fundraising activities are on hold for present and hopefully 2021 will see an easing of restrictions. Thank you again and just a reminder also that there are collection boxes in all the local shops in Glin. Have a happy and healthy Christmas and stay safe.

Christmas Mass rota beginning 21st December ๐ŸŽ„

Celebration of Masses over the Christmas holiday.

It is good that our churches are open for public Masses and liturgies.  Government guidelines and HSE restrictions are still in place and itโ€™s always important to be mindful of them for oneโ€™s own safety and the safety of others.

Keeping in mind the current Covid 19restrictions, we the clergy of Unit 13 have decided to put in place a schedule of Masses to help people celebrate Christmas in a real, meaningful and safe way.  

Starting on Monday 21st December, we are encouraging people to come to Mass either on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.  In doing so we hope to reduce overcrowding on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  

The schedule of Masses is published on parish websites, facebook pages and isavailable in churches for everyoneโ€™s benefit.  

Hope you all have a merry Christmas and a very happy and safe New Year. 

Canon Anthony Oโ€™Keeffe. Fr. Austin Mc Namara. Fr. Tim Curtin.

Glin Homes & Daycare Centre has been providing Meals on Wheels to the local community for the past five years.
Since its inception the service has grown considerably, and healthy and nutritious meals are delivered to the elderly of Glin and surrounding parishes of Loghill, Ballyhahill, Athea, Moyvane and Tarbert.
The Covid 19 pandemic meant that the number of vulnerable people living alone or in isolated areas and who were reliant on others increased significantly. Inundated with requests for more meal delivery, Una and Karen coped admirably with the extra office work and under the professional guidance of super chef Rachel Duff, the kitchen staff worked tirelessly to deliver hot and tasty meals to the elderly in the surrounding catchment area.
Working in teams and under very strict Covid restrictions, Carol, Marie, Bridget, Ruth, Margaret, Mary, Eamonn, Teresa, Denis and Sr. Mary were preparing and serving up to 90 meals consisting of a main course and a dessert, on a daily basis.
The human connection is also a very important element of the service, not only are Jimmy and Eamon delivering the meals to the door but they are ensuring that everyone benefits mentally and emotionally from a friendly smile, a wee chat and a check up on their general wellbeing.
Glin Homes and Daycare Centre is a wonderful example of management and staff working together to create a successful and vital service to the community. The management would like to acknowledge the huge contribution that the staff have made to the vulnerable in our community. Look no further than the staff of Glin Homes for your Frontline Heroes. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Glin Heritage Walking Trails…

The Rules for Glin Heritage Trails

  1. Enjoy Enjoy Enjoy!๐Ÿ˜Š
  2. PLEASE all dog owners clean up after your canine friends
  3. Keep your dog on a leash
  4. Leave no trace
  5. Respect the biodiversity
  6. Wear suitable gear
  7. Respect social distancing

The start of the Knights Walk has become a particular area of concern with regards to dog fouling. Just at the beginning of the Race Field is like a dog toilet area. This is really unacceptable! Dog poop is a health hazard for humans and other animals. Families use these walks, and lots of children enjoy the walks. Because the dogs poop in the verges, you might think this is ok, it is not. Children can walk on these grass verges and destroy their shoes. The RSS men regularly strim these verges, and they too are unprepared when they get covered in the spray off! You are allowed to leave the doggy bag at the site and retrieve on way back from walk. This problem will be monitored and any offenders will be approached to address the situation.
The TARBERT path is also another problem area for dog fouling. Doggy bags are inexpensive and widely available. Please respect the walks and your dog. Donโ€™t give your pet a bad name ๐Ÿถ, itโ€™s not their fault!
Please also take any empty water bottles etc home with you. The walks are important areas of nature conservation and full of Biodiversity to be enjoyed by young and old. Please leave no trace and bring home nothing but good memories.

Vandalism in Glin..

On Wednesday evening last the lights in The Town Park were smashed. Bollards lights and post lights were vandalised and park signage thrown into the river. Glin Development had plans to carry out some improvements in the Town Park over the coming weeks and we need to identify and apprehend these vandals who continue to destroy our public amenities. This is the third major incidence of vandalism in our town over the past few months. During the summer the viewing point on the Knights Walk was completely destroyed and it will cost thousands of euros to repair the damage.Some months back the Fairy Trail at St. Paul’s was vandalised and the Fairy Trail Committee spent a lot of time and money repairing the damage. Why anyone would vandalise a Fairy Garden that gives so much pleasure to our young children is very hard to fathom.We need to do more to apprehend these culprits. It will cost Glin Development thousands of euros to replace and repair all the properties that have been destroyed in the past few months. These amenity areas are there for the enjoyment of the general public. If we were more vigilant could these people be caught in the act and brought to task for this needless and costly destruction. Are these people local or coming from neighbouring parishes. If you have any information could you contact the local Garda Station at 068 34100

Glin GAA Club Notes

Mungret 4-11Glin 1-11Caherdavin was the venue for the County Intermediate Quarter Final last Friday evening. We had a very difficult start with three early goals for Mungret putting us on the back foot from the off and though we battled gallantly throughout the whole game, the gap was always there between the sides. There were periods where we put together some fine passages of play, scoring many fine points and there were many commendable individual performances all over the pitch. Over the past two years we have seen a host of new lads from our U21 County winning sides break into this team.Our senior players too have played their part, providing experience and guidance to the younger guys. There is no doubt that the talent is there to challenge for honours at this grade and the task now is to redouble our efforts and take our game to the next level in 2021.Team: Seรกn Lyons, Aiden Mulvihill, Jamie Fitzgerald, Tim Scanlon, Jack Sheehan (0-1), Philip Moloney, Conor Shine, Edmond Horan, Kevin Sweeney (0-1), Brian O’Donovan, Pรกdraig Scanlon (0-3), Oliver Wallace, Maurice Moore, Sheagh O’Connor (1-4), Brendan Flanagan (0-1)Subs Seรกn Horan for Philip Moloney, Ronan Culhane for Maurice Moore, Shane O’Sullivan for Seรกn Lyons, Tomรกs Woulfe for Tim Scanlon, Cian Culhane (0-1) for Oliver Wallace, Cormac Healy, John Wallace, Fionn Henderson, Kevin Moore, Stephen Barrett, Jack O’Neill.
Underage TeamsU21 training is starting this coming Saturday morning at 10am.Our U12s next match is against Feenagh-Kilmeedy.Our U14s are awaiting their county shield semi final, no fixture arranged yet.Our U10s had a worthwhile game against Tarbert last Sunday evening and gave a gave account of themselves.

Glin GAA – CLUB NOTES

Intermediate County QFGlin take on Mungret this Friday evening in Mick Neville Park, Rathkeale at 6.45 in the County Intermediate quarter final. Since we were promoted from Junior in 2014, we unfortunately not made a significant impact at this grade, and only reaching the knock out stages twice. Our opponents beat both Monaleen and Kildimo-Pallaskenry to top their group so they come into this game in good form. Our own path to this stage began with an opening round defeat to St. Senan’s before beating Bruff by five points 3 weeks ago. As the current restrictions continue to mean supporters are not allowed attend the game, we will be bringing you updates on Twitter throughout the match to ensure you are kept informed of key events in the game. Check out www.twitter.com/glingaa or follow us through the Twitter app. Best of luck to the lads!
U14 C’shipWell done to our U14s who had great win last week against Monagea! The team played brilliantly and we won on a score line of 7-7 to 2-14. Full forward Tom Healy was our top scorer with 6 goals and 3 points to his credit. The team lined out as follows:Darragh Woulfe, Conor Fitzgerald, Thabo Munpunda, S. Dillane, F. McNamara, Colm McNamara, Darragh Mullane, Aidan Healy, Adam Bennett, Gavin Thompson, Charlie McDonagh, D. Daly, J. Adams, Tom Healy, Sean McIntyre, G. McDonagh, Luke Buckley, Mark Hanagan, Killeen Lonergan, Fergal Leahy, R. McIntyre, Daniel Regan, Harry Fitzgerald.
MinorsHard luck to Shannon Gaels minors who lost to a very strong Ahane outfit in the County Minor B Football championship last Friday evening in New Garden. The final score was Ahane 5-9 Shannon Gaels 2-3.
CongratulationsWell done to all our players who received their Leaving Certificate results last week. We wish them all well with their next stage in life.

Intermediate C’ship .

Glin 2-10 Bruff 2-5
Though the new restrictions meant that no more than the proverbial two men and a dog were watching, the lack of spectators didn’t take from the exciting contest on the field at Feenagh last Saturday evening.We made a decent start with Brian O’Donovan bursting up the field before laying a fine pass of to Ronan Culhane who kicked over the first score of the day. Shortly afterwards, Jack Sheehan dodged passed two backs before being hauled to the ground. Kevin Moore kicked over the resulting free. We took the foot off the pedal then and Bruff came back into it with 2 points of their own.Point three came from good interplay between Tim Scanlon and Oliver Wallace in the middle of the field, Moore latched onto the kick inside and landed his second of the game. Two key moments came in the next five minutes. Ronan Culhane who had been doing well came off injured and Bruff converted a penalty. Fortunately for us, the response was immediate with Sheagh O’Connor’s fist deflecting a long Moore free into the back of the net. After the water break, Kevin Sweeney followed up from where he left off last week, with a fantastic left footed score from distance. Wallace turned provider once more with O’Connor knocking over his second score of the game. Bruff got a point back and were in for a goal but for a timely inception by goalkeeper Seรกn Lyons who cleared to safety.At half time the score was Glin 1-5 Bruff 1-3.We came like a greyhound out of the traps in the second half. It was barely a minute old when Philip Moloney’s accurate long pass was grasped by Moore about 30 yards out. He released the ball to the onrushing Sheagh O’Connor who left his man for dead before coolly slotted the ball into the corner of the net. Ollie Wallace then got on the scoresheet with a well taken point of his own which was followed by another monsterous 45 yard score from Kevin Sweeney. With ten minutes gone in the second half, we now led by 6 points, 2-7 to 1-4. Edmond and Seรกn Horan were really coming into their own in the middle of the field, winning kick outs and setting up attacks. Our defence was also holding firm with Tim Scanlon, Jamie Fitzgerald and Brian O’Donovan doing a great job keeping their men quiet whilst driving forward at every opportunity.At the 40th minute mark, Brendan Flanagan entered the fray and made an immediate impact, with two pointed free and lovely curling right footed effort during the next ten minutes. The score was now 2-10 to 1-5. Bruff came back into it towards the end and brought the deficit back to just 5 points with a goal but that was as close as it came with the final score 2-10 to 2-5. It was a well deserved victory that gets us back on track. We await the outcome of the final group match between St. Senan’s and Bruff to see what way this group pans out. Best for Glin on the day were Oliver Wallace, Jack Sheehan, Tim Scanlon, Edmond Horan, Kevin Sweeney and Sheagh O’Connor.Team:Seรกn Lyons, Aidan Mulvihill, Jamie Fitzgerald, Tim Scanlon, Brian O’Donovan, Philip Moloney, Conor Shine, Edmond Horan, Ronan Culhane, Jack Sheehan, Oliver Wallace, Kevin Sweeney, Sheagh O’Connor, Kevin Moore, Maurice Moore. Subs used: Seรกn Horan, John Wallace, Brendan Flanagan, James Wallace, Cian Culhane.

Glin and Ballyguiltenane Confirmation …๐Ÿ™

Glin will be celebrating the sacrament of Confirmation on this coming Thursday (Glin) and Friday (Ballyguiltenane). Fr. Tom Crawford will be officiating at the ceremony. It will be a lovely family occasion and we wish all the children receiving their Confirmation a wonderful spiritual day.

Hopefully the weather will be good and a lovely day will be enjoyed by all. ๐Ÿ™

CONFIRMATION PRAYER:

Spirit of God, grant me:
The gift of wisdom
To see the world through your eyes,
The gift of counsel
To make difficult decisions,
The gifts of knowledge and understanding To use my mind to know you and to love you, The gift of fortitude
To have the courage to live in the faith Despite the difficulties and disappointments, The gift of piety
To be able to express my special love And commitment to you,
And the right kind of awesome fear That makes me pause to wonder and revere Godโ€™s Love.
Amen ๐Ÿ™

A DAILY PRAYER FOR YOUR CONFIRMATION:

O God, I pray that you give me a right heart, that I may come to know you in Jesus. Lead me to know the sinfulness of my own heart, and your great love for me,
in Christ Jesus.
Help those who teach me,
to give me the teaching I need.
Grant that, on my Confirmation Day,
I may be ready to give myself to be your faithful soldier
and servant to my lifeโ€™s end;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen ๐Ÿ™
