Paróiste Fionn Trá.
Suite fé Shliabh an Iolair,
Ag dearcadh ‘mach ar an gCuan,
Tá paróiste mo shean is mo shinnsear
Atá sa reilig anois ina suan.
Is ann a tógadh is a hoileadh mé
Is beidh im’ chroí go bráth
Cuimhní breá‘tha, deasa, buanna
Ar mo pharóiste féin – Fionn Trá.
Bhí aithne ‘gam ar na cómharsain
Ó Fán go Coum a’ Liaig
Cathair a’ Treanntaigh, Baile n’ Chóta
Gan trácht ar Bhaile tSlé.
Cathair Boilig, Ard a’Bhóthair
Agus suas fé Chíll a’ Ruith
Agus cómharsain Chíllmhicadomhnaigh,
Ní fhaca a sárú ó shin.
Dómhsa anois is uaigneach,
An turas a thugaim ort,
Tá cairde m’óige imithe
Cuid acu thall thar s’rúth,
An spórt, an scléip, an caidreamh
A bhíodh againne tráth
Agus sinne óg agus aerach,
Im Pharóiste féin – Fionn Trá.
(Siobhán Ní h-Uallacháin ó Chillmhichadomhnaigh

Eucharistic Adoration in St. Mary’s Church from 5.00p.m. – 7.00pm on Sunday November 25th, the Feast day of Christ the King.
When we look at Jesus what do we see? There is no throne, no crown, no palace, no army. We see him walking the dusty roads of Palestine with a little band of disciples. He is surrounded by the poor and the sick, by sinners and outcasts. And yet the title ‘king’ is appropriate, and stands for something true and real in Jesus. It stands for his divinity. God is the Lord of all, the King of the universe, the One to whom all owe allegiance, the Ruler and Judge of all.
Dingle Parish Pastoral Council meeting next Thursday, November 29th at 8pm in the Presbytery.
Pray for Michael Lynch, Ballinasig; Mary Fitzgerald, (Nee Russell), The Grove; Tom Murphy, Dawstown, Blarney, Co. Cork and late of Rahinane.
