Rath Dé ar Dingle Regatta 2013
A Thiarna, ofrálaim an rás seo duit.
Ofrálaim m’iarracht duit mar urnaí agus
déanfad mo dhícheall.
Is tábhachtaí m’iompar sa naomhóg inniu ná fuinneamh mo ghéag sa rás.
Má dheinim go maith cabhraigh liom
éirí in airde a sheachaint,
Mioscais má bhuaitear orainn agus fearg,
formad agus fíoch.
Ach, a Thiarna, táim ag tnúth leis an mbua.
Tabhair cúnamh dom, más ea, mo dhícheall a dhéanamh agus gur leor sin chun an chraobh a bhreith. AMEN

Bliain an Chreidimh – Our Patron Saints Laochra an Chreidimh No.55.
St. Catherine was born in Sienna on the 25th of March 1347. She is the Patron Saint of illness, Italy and nurses. St. Catherine was a philosopher. She is one of the two patron saints of Italy with St. Francis of Assisi. Her proper name was Caterina Benincasa. In 1366 Catherine experienced a Mystical Marriage with Jesus. Catherine dedicated much of her life to helping the sick and the poor. St. Catherine died in Rome on the 29th of April 1380 at the age of thirty three having suffered a stroke eight days earlier. Jesus is also thought to have died at the same age. She is buried in Santa Maria Sopra Minerva.
I picked Catherine because I like the name and also, the name runs in my family and Saint Catherine was very kind. (Una – Bunscoil an Chlochar)

The Church of Ireland church on the north side of Main Street, St. James’s, was built in 1807 and renovated in 1974; an earlier church on the same site was reputed to have been built by the Spaniards. Its dedication to St. James and the Spanish trading presence in the town lends support to the tradition; Dingle was also a point of embarkation for the popular medieval pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James at Compostella. In a side chapel is a broken memorial to John Fitzgerald, Knight of Kerry, who died in 1741. Near by, in what remains of the old Dingle graveyard, is a curious slab from a tomb; broken now, the inscription around the edge of the slab is no longer legible, but it recorded, in an abbreviated form of mixed Latin and Irish, the burial of one of the Fitzgeralds in 1504. (The Dingle Peninsula – Steve MacDonogh)
Prayer at launch of St. James’ Survey, 2011.
For all dedicated to the conservation and minding of our Christian Heritage.
For this Community of St. James, for the local Tidy Town Committee and volunteers, for the State bodies and Kerry County Council officers entrusted to this work and for the team of Archaeologists caring for this cemetery of St. James. Amen
Dingle Parish Pastoral Council and Liturgy Groups thank all who promoted and participated in our round of Cemetery Masses. We acknowledge the great work of local committees together with Kerry County Council Officers and cemetery caretakers.

“Praise the Lord, Jerusalem;
He feeds you with the finest wheat”. (Psalm 147)
Let the wealthy and great
Roll in splendour and state
I envy them not, I declare it.
I eat my own lamb,
My chickens and ham,
I shear my own fleece and I wear it.
I have lawns, I have bowers,
I have fruit, I have flowers,
The lark is my morning alarmer.
So jolly boys now
Here’s God speed the plough,
Long life and success
to the Farmer.
“They go out, they go out full of tears,
Bearing seed for the sowing.
They come back, they come back with joyful shouts,
Bringing into the barns their harvested sheaves.” (Psalm 126)
(Poem by the late Patrick O’Connor, Knocknahow, Dingle.)
Not what we give but what we share…
‘A summer Sunday again,
and you’ll have visitors,’
the padre said at Mass.
‘Friends and relatives on holidays
from Santiago … or the country … or wherever,
dropping in for a chat,
a drink, a bite to eat…’
It reminded me of my mother,
And sister, Evelyn, and living near the sea.
‘Well, do your best for them,’ he urged.
‘Be as hospitable as you can.
Give them a welcome anyway.
It’s only once a year… or so…’
They were poor women, his congregation.
They smile into their laps with wry resignation.
They knew, in a very different way from the padre,
that to celebrate the oldest of human rites –
the breaking of bread –
somebody along the line
has to make a sacrifice.
(Reflections on a Life – Ó Mhuígheó go Valparaiso: Teresita Durkan)
