Lacken & Valleymount News

Fr Richard 60th Birthday
Fr Richard was given a pleasant surprise when he was invited to join the parishioners for tea after mass on Sunday Aug 11th.
A large gathering came together to present  Fr Richard with an olive tree to mark his 60th birthday.
Fr Richard has a passionate interest in gardening and it was an appropriate and symbolic gift, the olive tree being a symbol of peace and friendship.
Let's hope that the tree will flourish in its new surroundings and that Fr Richard will be blessed with good health for many years to come.

Memory Garden Valleymount
On Sunday 23rd June, Bishop Eamonn  Walsh blessed the Memory Garden in Valleymount  after the 11.15am Mass.
The garden is dedicated to the memory of all those who were displaced or affected by the creation of the Poulaphouca Reservoir. I would like to thank Bishop Eamonn for his encouraging and supportive homily & also to all those who participated in the ceremony.
Special thanks to Kevin Byrne and his family, along with many members of the community, who created the garden and donated materials, time and energy to make it possible.
If you like to contribute a donation towards the expense of creating the garden, please leave it in an envelope for the sacristan in Valleymount Church.
With every blessing. Fr Richard
