We extend our deepest sympathy to all the Carberry and Power families on the recent death of Kathleen Carberry(nee Power) of Whelansbridge. Kathleen is survived by her husband Billy, daughters Paula and Angela, grandchildren and all family members and friends. Kathleen’s funeral mass took place in St. Marys, Ballygunner and she was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery. We pray that she now rests in peace and that the Lord will have mercy on her soul.
Fabulous At 50
We send many good wishes to birthday girl Edel Searson, Gortaclode who recently celebrated her 50th birthday. I have no doubt that if things had been 100% back to normal then there would have been many many nights out to celebrate this event. However nothing stops the Searsons and so Shay, Amber and Scott pulled out all the stops so that Edel could enjoy a night full of glamour, sophistication and elegance and that was just the four of them attending and of course their dogs Poppy and Bailey who added the sophistication. I’m sure Edel enjoyed her special day and will make up the celebrating in due course. Happy birthday Edel you are most definetly fab at 50!
There were also 50th birthday celebrations in the home of former Blacknock resident Pat O Keeffe. Pat emigrated to Portlaw some years back but is of course a regular visitor here in Kilmeaden. I know that his wife Ann and sons Jack and Conor will have made sure that Pat enjoyed every minute of his day and was spoiled. We wish Pat many more happy birthdays.
Lots of special birthdays taking place in the month of May. Blacknock lady Lisa Burns celebrated her 30th birthday and I’m sure she was treated to a delicious cake from Kilmeaden Bakes. Birthday celebrations will continue for the year I’m sure so clear your calendar. We wish Lisa many more happy birthdays to come.
Saturday May 9th should have been a very special exciting day for the boys and girls in 2nd class in Ballyduff NS. It should have been their First Holy Communion Day but unfortunately in present conditions their special day has been put on hold. I know this is very disappointing for them all and their families but their special day has not been cancelled it is simply on hold and will always be special no matter when it is. Lots of plans and arrangements had been made but can easily be rearranged. It is much more important that they are all kept safe and well as they are all very precious. I hear on the grapevine that each of the boys and girls received a lovely letter during the week from their teacher Ms. Ryan which was a beautiful thoughtful thing to do. We look forward to First Holy Communion Day in the future months and know that it will be a wonderful day.
