What a joy it was to play our little part here in Balally on the day Charlie Bird climbed Croagh Patrick . Thanks to Grace from Wesley for being a wonderful MC, Paul for the technology, Frank for the stewards, Patsy for the set up ,and Brendan for the Security.
It was nice to have Father Dermot lead us in the blessing accompanied by Reverend Nigel from Wesley and Sarah from Saint Tiernans. Thanks to the schools who participated: Queen of Angels, Saint Olafs, Muckross, Teresians, Benildus, and Saint Tiernans. I am particularly grateful to Miss Donegan and Mister Murtagh for all their help in organizing the day.
It was a fantastic turnout. I will put in the figure donated next week as the money is still coming in.
Finally sincere thanks to Minister Catherine Martin for leading the walk. You can read her inspirational address on a separate post.
