Farewell Ms. Downey

Some pics from the recent Retirement assembly for Brid Downey who was a much valued member of staff at Primrose Hill (our parish school) for 10 years - She will be greatly missed! We wish Brid a long and healthy retirement. Staff and Students alike paid tribute to Brid's generous good humour and her care for the whole school community. 


Farewell to Fr Aidan

At a packed farewell reception last night in Newcastle-Lyons the Rector, on behalf of the parishioners of St. Finian's Church of Ireland parish made a presentation to Fr. Aidan Kieran CC St. Finian's Catholic parish who has been appointed Administrator of Castledermot. Fr Aidan will be greatly missed and has been a very good ecumenical neighbour and a good friend to the parish. We wish him every blessing in his new appointment. The presentation from the parish included a framed photo (see below) which marks the shared Good Friday Way of the Cross in which Fr Aidan alongside Mr Geoffrey McMaster was a driving force. Thanks to Mr Tony Waldron who took the photo of the Church and combined it with the Good Friday inset photo taken by Mr Geoffrey McMaster who also took the photo of the presentation ceremony. The parish also gave Fr Aidan a cheque to buy something of his choosing for his new home.
