Paidir d’ár Misean

A Athair neamhaí, iarraimid ort sinn a bheannú

Agus sinn ag ullmhú do Mhisean an Pharóiste i Mí na Samhna. Oscail ár gcroíthe dod ghrásta, go mbeimid níos dílse ag leanúint do shlí.

Leag go fial do bheannacht ar na teaghlaigh inár bparóiste, ar ár bpobal sa bhaile agus i gcéin,

Go h’áirithe na teaghlaigh sin atá i gcruachás.

Beannaigh idir óg agus críonna, uaigneach

Bocht, breoite, iad siúd atá in isle brí,

Iad siúd a chaill a slí

Go dtitfidh do ghrá  orainn, a Thiarna

Agus sinn ag cur ár ndóchas i dtaisce ionat.


Fómhar na Farraige

A special céad míle fáilte to all who join us for our 11.30am celebration of Fómhar na Farraige or The Harvest of the Sea. We extend our thanks to those who help organise this annual liturgy, who prepare and decorate the Church, those who supply the wonderful display of fish, all those who contribute items for the procession of symbols and for the decoration of the church, and all who play a special part in the Mass as we offer our thanks to the Lord and ask His blessing on all whose livelihood depends on the sea.  Those who bring up the gifts – Ann Sheehy, Jason Sheehy, Pat Ferriter, Seamie Granville, Katie Flannery, Ruth Flannery, John Brosnan, Fearle Fenton and Dylan  – place before us symbols of the great harvest of fish and other products which come from the sea, as well as items representing different aspects of the sea-faring life and marine activities.  Our readers, those who read prayers of the faithful and the reflection – Brigid Flannery, Kelsey Sheehy, John Brosnan, John Fenton, Paddy Fenton and Bernie Búdhlaeir– proclaim the life-giving Word of the Lord who created sea and sky and ask His abundant blessing.  Mrs Donegan & family present the bread and wine which become the Body and Blood of Christ.

Fómhar ár bhfarraige, The bountiful, life-giving harvest of our seas.  Moladh go deo le Dia na Cruinne.

Dingle Bay

The sun was sinking o’er the westward

The fleet is leaving Dingle shore

I watch the men row in their curraghs

As they mark the fishing grounds near Sceilig Mór

All through the night men toil until the daybreak

while at home their wives and sweethearts kneel and pray

That God might guard them and protect them

and bring them safely back to Dingle Bay

I see the green Isle of Valentia

I mind the days around Lough Léin

The gannets swinging with abandon

As they watch the silver store that comes their way

I also see a ship on the horizon

She is sailing to a country far away

on board are exiles feeling lonely

As they wave a fond farewell to Dingle Bay

Now years have passed as I came homeward

And time has left me old and grey

I sit and muse about my childhood

And the happy times I spent near Dingle Bay

I see again the green isle of Valentia

And the Isle of Inishmore seems far away

And I’m always dreaming of my childhood

And the happy days I spent near Dingle Bay

Fómhar na Feirme –Sunday 15th August at 11.30am when we give thanks for the Fruits of the Land
