Bliain an Chreidimh – Our Patron Saints Laochra an Chreidimh No.52.
Saint Bernadette – She was born Bernadette Soubirous, on the 7th January 1844 in Loudes, France. She died on the 16th of April 1879 aged 35 in Nevers, France. Bernadette was a sickly child. Some of the people who interviewed her after her visions thought her simple minded. Despite that she stuck to her story of how the Virgin Mary appeared to her and told her to drink from a spring under a rock and eat the plants growing there. She tried three times, but failed to get water. The 4th time she found muddy water. Despite the high mineral content of the water which flows there now, the 67 cures which have taken place are unexplained. I chose St. Bernadette because even when people thought that she was mad, she had faith in the apparitions. (Mollie – Bunscoil an Chlochar)

Kinard Cemetery
Inscribed crosses of various forms occur on a variety of early medieval monuments in Co. Kerry. The largest group, however, comprises cross-inscribed slabs. These may be described as stones, either standing or recumbent, inscribed with a cross, and they appear to have been generally used as grave markers or memorials. Examples of this type are on record from many cemetery including Kinard. Very simple Latin or equal-armed linear crosses, without elaboration to the terminals, occur on 12 ogham stones in Corca Dhuibhne, including that from Cinn Aird. This is a rounded boulder, with a flat face, the upper portion of which bears a large equal-armed linear cross enclosed in a square, with a small equal-armed cross in each of the upper quadrants. Linear crosses in angular frames are of a rare occurrence generally, and square or rectangular frames occur on only a very small number of inscribed stones in Corca Dhuibhne.
Simple equal-armed linear crosses occur on four of the ogham stones from Baile an tSagairt. Swift has argued that the disposition of the crosses in relation to the inscriptions on these stones suggest contemporaneity. The inscriptions on two of them feature the KOI element, on the basis of which, combined with their preapocope character, McManus has suggested they may be assigned to the fifth or possibly early sixth century, the earliest phase detectable in ogham, suggesting a similarly early date for the linear crosses. A fifth to mid-sixth century date for the plain linear cross-form is also indicated by the nature of the inscription on the Cinn Aird ogham stone, assuming the cross-forms and inscription to be contemporary, which seems probable.

Mass Rock at Coumduff, Annascaul
The Corca Dhuibhne Pastoral Area Mass in Coumduff, Annascaul was attended by a great hosting of pilgrims from the four parishes together with some visitors. Newly ordained Bishop of Kerry Dr. Reamonn de Brún led the liturgical celebration in the sacred valley known as “Soggarth” in local lore.
Comhghairdeas agus míle buíochas to Fr. John Buckley P.P. and his magnificent Parish meitheal of helpers and hosts who cared for us all so well.
Writing of such a Eucharist Westmeath writer Christopher Nolan says: “The Station now expressed community celebration, cementing of neighbourliness, continuity of family contact and bonding of country people’s folklore and values”.
(Christopher Nolan – ‘Under The Eye of the Clock’ Page 125).
