The Assumption of Mary. 

On Monday, we celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady.  The Irish people called this day ‘Lá Fhéile Muire san Fhómhar’, Mary’s Feast in Autumn.  Devotion to Our Lady is a feature of our faith because she is the Mother of God; the mother of our Saviour.  She accepted the Word of God in her heart and body and she gave life to the world.  Every time we say the Hail Mary, we ask Our Lady to protect us especially at the hour of our death when we will stand before the Judge of the living and the dead.

National Heritage Week

The 13th - 21st August is National Heritage Week organised by the National Council of Ireland.  It is the most comprehensive heritage event in Ireland.  We have a rich heritage in Ireland including storytelling, singing, craft, sport, music, blessed wells, Mass Ricks, monuments, flora, fauna, natural havitats, rivers and lakes.  Let us respect and conserve it.   God be praised forever.  Amen.
